Principal's Message

Dear Sequoia Families,


Tomorrow night we have an SPC sponsored movie night. Due to a scheduling conflict in the MPR, we will show ONE movie only. Doors will open at 5:30 for students and families to get settled with sleeping bags, blankets or pillows and begin Ferdinand at 6:00. Concessions will be sold by our 6th graders and proceeds will go to our 6th grade fund. We're excited for a fun family night!


Lately, we've had a few younger students running between cars to get to their parents in the large parking lot. In an effort to keep students safe, please remind your child to take the yellow walking lane to get to your vehicle if you are parked. Also, the right lane is meant for picking up and students can wait for you on the yellow walking lane there as well. The left lane is for driving through and exiting. Thank you for your help with this safety situation.


We have many events coming up in the last few months!
