The SEA is an organization of comprised of parent volunteers, teachers and school staff whose goal is to raise money for the current and future students of Cardiff and Ada Harris schools. In many ways the SEA is similar to a Parent Teacher Association (PTA).
The SEA is actively involved in fundraising efforts that allow us to directly invest money into the enhancement and enrichment of Cardiff schools. Our efforts pay for salaries that help keep class sizes small and add programs and projects that enhance the educational and developmental experiences for our children.
