What’s Unique about Seitz Elementary

Students and Parent after Color Dash

Mission
The Seitz Elementary School community is committed to enriching the lives of military connected children by developing academic excellence and inspiring actions that positively impact the world.

Motto
Learning not just for school, but for life.

Our school, proudly named after General Richard J. Seitz, opened its doors for the first time in August, 2012. We fully embrace the guiding principals of Responsive Classroom which teach us to foster not only a child’s academic growth but also his/her social-emotional growth. Since we opened we have had a very active Booster Club. This parent organization is instrumental in supporting the academic and social growth of our students by sponsoring numerous family events each year and providing support to our teachers and students throughout the school year. We encourage you to get involved in our school and discover for yourself the incredible talents and hearts of our students, staff, and families.
