Principal's Message

It's been a little quiet on campus this week with our 6th graders at camp this week. On Wednesday our 6th graders went to science camp at Westminster Woods and arrive back today! I was able to go have dinner with them last night and even though they were wet, they had smiles from ear to ear. I'm excited to hear all the stories from their amazing time of fun and learning!


This week at our Monday assembly we celebrated our MJ Golden Shoe winners. The MJ Golden Shoe award goes to a boy and girl at each grade level who run the most laps at the Walk-A-Thon. The competition is fierce for this coveted award. The MJ Golden Shoe is also special because it honors a past student from Sequoia who passed away in a tragic accident several years ago. This student, Marcus Johnson, won the Golden Shoe award every year from 1st-6th grade while at Sequoia. Each year, his younger brother Hayden (who also won the Golden Shoe from K-6th grade) comes back to give the awards to the current winners. It's special to all of us and we are glad to keep this tradition going at Sequoia. Congratulations to all our MJ Golden Shoe winners!


At our Monday assembly also recognized several students for perfect attendance in the first trimester. We had 95 students out of 400 who had perfect attendance! We put all the names in a lottery and awarded several students from each grade level. I know it can be challenging to get students to school on time, every single day so thank you for your work in making school attendance a priority!


Hope you have a great weekend!
