The Splash Editor:
The Splash newsletter is sponsored by Seward’s PTA and is published monthly. This volunteer position requires about 5 to 8 hours per month (September–May) and requires proofreading and organizational skills. The Splash editor compiles and edits articles from Seward’s principal, the specialists and the PTA. In addition, the editor creates an “Upcoming Events” calendar for each month. One of the best aspects of being the Splash editor is that the work can be done from home at your convenience. 

We are actively recruiting parent volunteers to fill these positions for the 2015-2016 school year.
