Principal's Message

Dear Sequoia Families,

If you haven't already heard, we are doing a Read-A-Thon for the next 2 weeks! Your child should have received a document on Monday with a code that will allow them to set up their Read-A-Thon dashboard. From there they can collect donations and log reading sessions each day. The top earning upper and primary grade classroom will earn a pizza party! In addition, I have given our entire student body a goal of reading 10 million words in the next two weeks. If I know anything about Sequoia students it's that once they are given a goal, they will reach it! I'm excited to see the focus on reading these next couple weeks. The donations from this fundraiser will go toward field trips, assemblies, science, classroom/teacher requests and more! Thank you to McCall Miller and SPC for helping to set up our Read-A-Thon fundraiser. If you have questions about your dashboard or code, please email McCall Miller at

STEAM Night is tomorrow night! Various classrooms will be open with different activities such as coding, slime making, tower building, art, math games and more. STEAM Night begins at 6:00 and runs until 7:30. You can come at any time during that time and visit as many activities as you would like. Some students may want to spend all of their time in 2-3 rooms, while others will want to try them all. No pressure, all fun! We hope you will come enjoy learning with your child. (This is not a drop off event, all students should be supervised)

Our volleyball team finished their season this last weekend and did a great job! They worked hard, learned a lot and had a lot of fun! We are proud of our Sequoia Giants!

Have a good week!

Mrs. Clark
