Awakening Seed Parents’ Association

The Awakening Seed Parents’ Association (APA) focuses on fundraising to contribute to scholarships, special projects (such as improving outdoor spaces), classroom supplies/projects, and structuring family engagement opportunities throughout the year.

Last year, APA funds were allocated to the following:

  • Scholarships – $10,000 in preschool scholarships
  • Classroom projects – lead teachers and specialists receive funds for their classroom/specialty area
  • Family sponsorships – more than 10 families were sponsored for the 2018 Halloween Carnival.  This included entry, food, tickets, and Mystery Theatre.
  • Staff birthday treats and Gratitude Committee efforts
  • School improvements – We’re pleased to announce that a portion of the 2018-2019 funds will be dedicated to enhancing the outdoor play spaces, on both the toddler and large playgrounds.

Upcoming APA-Sponsored Events

Tie-Dye Day: Thursday, September 26th

Join us for this traditional event that marks the bringing of the fall season.  An opportunity for students and families to be artists, makers, and creators. Everyone is energized by curiosity and inspiration. It is a “rite of passage” into the Seed community, as we come together as a Seed family. It is a celebration of splashes of color, and exhale of creativity, and a burst of inspiration for the world to see.

We are very excited to showcase this year’s t-shirt, which was inspired by Deb Hopkins and designed by Mary Glover.

Halloween Carnival: Friday, October 25th

A time-honored Seed tradition that brings our community together, past and present.  This year’s Halloween Carnival will showcase our staff’s Mystery Theatre, includes a food truck, carnival games, face painting, a cake walk, costume parade, and an incredible line-up of raffle and auction items.
