Blessings in a Backpack
Blessings in a Backpack is a wonderful community outreach program that makes sure that students on free or reduced lunch have enough food to see them through the weekend and ready to learn come Monday morning. This program runs throughout the school year and we are always looking for volunteers to pack out bags of food on Friday mornings, right after drop off.

Thanksgiving Food Drive
Our Thanksgiving food drive makes a big difference to our students and their families over the holidays.

Volunteers are needed to help count and sort cans during the 2 weeks prior to Thanksgiving. If you are interested in volunteering for the Thanksgiving Food Drive please contact us for more information.
Holiday Toy Drive

Toy donations are encouraged during this time and volunteers are needed to help deliver toys and bikes the week before Winter Break. If you are interested in volunteering for the Holiday Toy Drive please contact us for more information.
Character Counts Awards & Luncheon
Character Counts is a monthly program that recognizes good citizenship based on a monthly character trait. Each month 1 student is chosen per class to receive this recognition. Volunteers are needed to help with the bulletin board in the main hallway that is updated monthly with pictures of the Character Counts student of the month. We also need volunteers to help prepare certificates and attend the monthly luncheon to pass out a sweet treat to the students and parents.

Landscaping & Campus Beautification
A lot of sweat and hard work has gone into improving the school grounds and courtyards. Twice each school year we have a big push to clean up with both parents and teachers getting their hands dirty. Volunteers are needed to help with clean up but the PTA is also looking for someone to help coordinate volunteers on the day of the event. If you are interested in volunteering for Campus Clean Up Day please contact us for more information.
Each September we welcome grandparents, aunts, uncles, moms, dads and any other special family members to come and have lunch with their Seabreeze student. It is the perfect opportunity for loved ones to come and visit Seabreeze. Volunteers are needed to help set up for the event, as well as throughout the day. We also need donations of baked goods on the luncheon days. If you are interested in volunteering for the Grandparent Luncheon please contact us for more information.
Teacher Appreciation Luncheons
During each grading period, our PTA hosts a Teacher Appreciation Luncheon for our teachers and staff. Volunteers are needed on those days to set up, help serve and clean up after the event.

Twice a year Seabreeze hosts a blood drive to help out and support the community. Blood Drive days are typically held in October and February and we are always looking for healthy adults to participate.

Vision and Hearing Screening
This long-running program by DCPS is implemented by the PTA and for most students is their first screen to detect subtle vision and hearing problems. All grades receive an annual vision screen, while kindergarten, first grade and any new students to Seabreeze also get a hearing check-up too. Volunteers are needed in the Fall to help with Vision and Hearing Screening. If you are interested in volunteering please contact us for more information.
