  • calendar  Trimester Two Parent/Teacher Conferences

    Thursday, January 24, 2019 4-7 PM

    On behalf of the Faculty and Staff of Seaholm High School, I am pleased to invite you to participate in our second Trimester Parent-Teacher Conferences.

    If you need assistance accessing the Power School Parent Portal, please contact Mrs. Balow at 248-203-3751 or by email at

    We ask from parents the following:

    1.     Check the on-line grades and attendance prior to coming to conferences.

    2.     Discuss the upcoming conferences with your son/daughter and see if there are any particular topics which he/she would like to have you discuss with a faculty member, or whether an email would be appropriate.

    3.     Bring the names of your student's teachers and the subjects they teach.  Students do not attend.

    4.     Feel free to write down discussion questions ahead of time and take notes during the conference to share with your son/daughter.

    5.     Limit your conversation with a teacher to three to five minutes--shorter if possible if there is a line of people waiting.  If a lengthy conference is necessary, the teachers will be pleased to set up a subsequent appointment.

    Teachers may require a short break in the midst of conferences.  You may be asked to wait a few minutes for their return. Thank you for your understanding.

  • Blue Ribbon Seal2018   Seaholm High School named National Blue Ribbon School

    On Monday, Oct. 1, 2018 the U.S. Department of Education announced the 2018 National Blue Ribbon Schools, which included Ernest W. Seaholm High School among its recipients. Seaholm was selected as an Exemplary High Performing School, a status given to the state’s highest performing schools as measured by state assessments and nationally normed tests.

    “Seaholm students have a strong history of high academic achievement,” said Interim Superintendent John Silveri. “The National Blue Ribbon status is a coveted recognition and speaks not only to the dedication of our staff members and students, but also to our community for their support and commitment to partnering with us in education.”

    The NBRS award affirms the hard work of educators, families and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging and engaging content. Seaholm is among 300 public schools in the country to receive this recognition.  Seaholm is one of 2 high schools in Michigan to receive the honor this year.

    “We are honored as a school community to be named a National Blue Ribbon School and to celebrate the honor with our school community,” said Principal Kyle Hall.   “Earning the NBRS award does not mean our work stops here. As a high-achieving school, we will continue to work towards our goal of educational excellence for every student.  At Seaholm, however, faculty and students work together to establish a culture and climate that extends our mission beyond academic excellence to nurture growth in character—to think with reflection, act with compassion and perform with honor both in and out of the classroom. ”  

    Up to 420 schools may be nominated each year. The Department invites National Blue Ribbon School nominations from the top education official in all states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, the Department of Defense Education Activity and the Bureau of Indian Education. Private schools are nominated by The Council for American Private Education (CAPE).

  • Apple Enews Emails

    For the past couple of years we have been using the email addresses from Power School as our source for sending enews and other important class communications electronically.  If your student graduates, advances from middle to high school, their information will get updated along with their student records.  If you “opt out”, you will not get any communications to that email address for any of your children throughout the district, even if you attempt to register to the enews system. 

    If you have "opted out" of receiving enews, please email indicating that you would like to be reinstated on Blackboard Connect.  Thank you!
