School News and Updates
Next week we will begin a school recycling program at lunch time. We have an eager group of 6th graders that will help at each lunch time so students know what is recyclable or trash. Next year, we will expand our program to include compostable items as well. We are excited to have our Sequoia Giants Go Green!
Our family STEAM Night is next Thursday, April 18th from 5:30-7:30. Please join your child in learning through various Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math activities on campus. All the activities will be open during this two hour period so you can come and go at anytime. We will also have a food truck available for families who would like to purchase dinner.
