Sequoia Student Workshops
What We do.
As educators we all have one goal for our students. To see them succeed. The workshops being offered through the library in collaboration with counseling services will give our students more tools to succeed.
How You Can Help.
Schedule your students to come to the library during the year. The workshops being offered can be linked to your class room curriculum. Some of the workshops will be offered school wide throughout the year. Sequoia Middle School has a vast array of resources available to students and staff. We are all just a phone call, visit or e-mail away. If you don’t see a workshop being offered talk to the library specialist and or counselor(s) and custom make one to fit your needs.
Stop by the library today for more information and to schedule a workshop for your students.
