Impact Award

Each semester, the Seaman School District recognizes a USD 345 staff member who is going above and beyond for our students and families every day. These employees represent a vital part of our district and our community and we want them to know how much their contributions mean to everyone.

Parents and community members will nominate an employee in our district so we can help share and recognize the positive impact they’re making in our community. All nominees will be recognized each month with a grand prize selected each quarter.

How can you help? 
We're looking for businesses/organizations/community members to donate items to be included in the four award packages. Your generous donations will be shared with our staff and community. If you are interested, please email [email protected] to learn more about becoming an impact award sponsor.

Biz Lunch

On August 9, 2023, we invited local businesses to set up a table to showcase their business to our 50+ new teachers. Some teachers were new to the area so this was a great opportunity to introduce the amazing products and services offered by our local businesses and organizations. Each business was asked to provide a goodie bag for our new teachers. Please email [email protected] for more information.

An internship is a career preparation activity which students are placed at a worksite for a defined period of time to participate in and observe work firsthand within a given industry. An internship is an excellent way to determine if the industry and the profession is the best career option to follow before investing a lot of time and money in training and education.

Internships engage students in their own learning and provide multiple opportunities for reflection on the experience, both verbally and in writing. Quality internships are designed to directly support academic learning.
