Inspiring a love of learning

Cardiff SEA
Welcome to the Cardiff SEA! Our goal as the PTA (known as the Cardiff Schools Educational Association) is to improve the educational and school experience of all children in the Cardiff School district through the funding of enrichment programs and family-oriented community events. We are looking forward to another fun and productive school year, and are looking forward to hearing your input and feedback at our monthly Cardiff SEA Meetings the second Wednesday of every month (excluding July and August). To book an event, volunteer, or donate directly, please contact or email an officer of the Cardiff SEA or Melanie Garcia, the Cardiff SEA President.

Monthly Cardiff SEA Meetings:
*Next meeting: Wednesday, June 8, 2016 @ 6:15 pm (approx. 1-1.5 hrs.). *Free Childcare provided.
 All meetings begin promptly at 6:15pm in the Cardiff School Auditorium.  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 partnerships.  Childcare is provided for school-aged children until 8 pm at every meeting. 
2016 Annual Cardiff SEA Gala:
Thank you to all the donors, parents, volunteers, vendos, performers, and organizers of this year's Fiesta themed Gala!!!  This year's event, held at the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club, was nearly flawless with some of the greatest bidding wars ever witnessed in the history of our event!  Our SOLD OUT crowd and performers rocked the venue the entire night!  Stay tuned for the final numbers in the near future...

Thank you Cardiff Friends and Family!!! The 3rd Annual Boo-by-the-Sea Halloween Carnival raised $38,655.75 for the enrichment programs in the Cardiff School District. 
A special THANK YOU to DJ E-DUB and DJ Richie$ for their amazing music, the legendary Bert for one of the best logo designs we've ever had, as well as Moonlight Screen Printing, Cardiff Seaside Market, East Coast Pizza, Rimel's Restaurants, and the Rob Machado Foundation & MIZU Life for making our first plastic bottle-free event possible!  A tremendous community hug goes out to all of our Cardiff families and our numerous contributors (too many to name) for sponsoring our games, prizes, and food & drinks with your donations through our Boo-by-the-Sea website, and to all our volunteers from Ada Harris and Cardiff School.  To say the least, we could not organize events of this capacity without YOU and your tremendous support!!!

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
