Seth Boyden Strong

Some of our awesome students (and one teacher!) showing their #SethBoydenStrong spirit during remote school, Fall/Winter 2020

End-of-Year Message from the Seth Boyden PTA:

What a year 2020 has been!

From the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, this community has shown, again and again, how to be Seth Boyden Strong.

From Go Fund Mes for Seth Boyden students who lost parents to the incredible grassroots efforts of SOMA Shares — supporting our community with groceries and masks and books and coats and more — to the teachers who have done so much during such a difficult time — and the generosity and grace showed to them by our Seth Boyden families — to the class captains who have worked to forge connections between classmates to all the PTA volunteers and board members who have kept it going throughout and the students — these incredible children — who have had their normal lives pulled out from under them and still show up at their computers every day and persevere.

These are just a few of the countless examples of the generosity of spirit and giving that is Seth Boyden. 

We are looking forward to 2021 with great hope and anticipation, and as we prepare for a new year, we ask that if you are able to make a year-end gift, to please consider supporting Seth Boyden PTA. We are a 501(c) (3) organization and your gift helps to fund efforts like getting books in the hands of students, assemblies that enrich our children’s education, teacher gifts, SOMA Shares, and so much more in the future. Your gift truly makes a difference! 

You can make a tax-deductible gift through PayPal, and you can even make it recurring. Click here

And if your employer matches charitable donations, then the impact of your donation to Seth Boyden could be doubled! Ask at work. 

We are Seth Boyden Strong because we are a unique, dynamic, and exceptionally caring school community filled with so many people doing good every day. We are Seth Boyden Strong because of YOU.
