The SEED anniversary celebration event last week, which sold out, was held at Grey Horse Tavern.
This spring the group hopes to sponsor a district-wide trip to the Bethpage Village Restoration for all fourth grade classes and initiate a districtwide Science Fair in the spring of 2014.
In its initial year SEED partnered with the Academy Street Lion Bots Robotics Team and provided a $500 scholarship for a graduating senior.
Its mission statement also indicates the group hopes to help fund science competition participation, provide mini grants for projects and create and develop dedicated elementary science labs.

According to the group's website, the group's bylaws state that SEED is not a school budget
crutch nor will it aid in budget items and/or expenses.
"The foundation exists to provide extras that make an educational experience outstanding and memorable. SEED’s intention is to not only garner involvement and support from the community, but to also focus on obtaining grants and monies available to foundations that may not be attainable at a school district level," states the site.
