There are many ways to get involved, from volunteering in the classroom, to helping in the school gardens, to making a pledge donation, to attending a field trip. For in-classroom activity, talk to your teachers directly.
Sebastopol Education Foundation – Parent Connection is the fundraising and volunteer group for our school district.
Our mission is two-fold:
1. To support Brook Haven and Park Side financially through a variety of fundraising activities
2. To build a stronger school community by bringing families together and organizing school events
SEF-PC is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization. In the 2013-14 school year, we distributed over $58,000 to Brook Haven and Park Side Schools. The money raised supports student enrichment (including art, music, drama, counseling, Spanish, sports equipment), field trips and classroom supplies at Brook Haven and Park Side schools.
SEF-PC also helps organize or support district-wide events such as International Walk & Roll to School Day, the Stargazing Party, and the holiday-timed Original Works program, where your child’s artwork can be transferred onto mugs, cards and more.
Many other school events and activities are organized within each school by dedicated staff, families and community members. Every year there are science fairs, movie nights, bingo, family dances, skate nights, book fairs, and talent shows. In recent years great events like Passport Day and Kids Can College have also taken place.
