Cardiff School District

Inspiring a love of learning

Cardiff SEA
Welcome to the Cardiff SEA!
We are the community of parents, family and community members that come together to help improve the educational and school experience of all children in the Cardiff School district. We do this through the funding of enrichment programs and family-oriented community events. In 2016-2017 we are looking forward to another fun and productive school year! Be sure to stay connected with us on social media. "LIKE" us on Facebook  and follow our events on Instagram and Twitter@cardiffschoolsSEA #cardiffSEA #cardiffschools.  For more information, contact Adam Sweet, Cardiff SEA President.
Upcoming Announcements
Next SEA meeting: Wednesday, October 12, 2016 
All meetings begin promptly at 6:15pm in the Cardiff School Auditorium the second Wednesday of every month.  This is a community meeting, so everyone is welcomed, including Grandparents and Extended Family members, and anyone that wants to actively participate, volunteer, or learn more about the enrichment programs in the Cardiff School District, as well as our progression with Common Core State Standards inside the classroom.  You do not need to be a classroom rep or parent to attend.  The Cardiff SEA supports youth community service hours at most of our events, and encourages local business owners to support our parents and families through creating meaningful partnerships.  Childcare is provided for school-aged children until 8 pm at every meeting.

Bike to School EVERY FIRST WEDNESDAY of the Month!!!
Join parents and students every first Wednesday of the month for our *Bike to School Special Event...Walk/Skip/Bike/Skate/ Scooter or Buggy to school with the kids for a new crisp morning experience!  It's good exercise and a great way to get the community to slow down in our neighborhoods!  Cardiff School students can collect prizes and charms each month (breakfast bars are sometimes available), and it's a great opportunity to spend the morning with friends and coffee!
Currently, this is only happening at Cardiff School.  If a parent or volunteer would like to coordinate a special Monthly Bike to School Event at Ada Harris, please email
