Welcome Back!

It was great to see all of our Indians back at school today! I hope you enjoyed your break and some quality time with family! We are excited to begin 2016 and can't wait to see each student grow by leaps and bounds!


Microwaves: Our Student Council raised enough money to purchase 2 microwaves for the cafeteria! This is something the Student Council has been working on for the last 2 years and are very proud of their accomplishment! The microwaves are available for use by all 3rd-5th graders. Here are a couple of helpful hints when using the microwaves:


  • Send food that needs to be "heated" not cooked
  • If it is a meal that needs to be cooked, try to send meals that cook in 3-4 minutes or less, the students only have 20 minutes for lunch
  • Please review how to cook the food with your child that morning or evening to ensure that they know how to prepare their food using the microwaves
  • The students must use the plastic shield to cover their food when using the microwaves



Volunteer of the Year: It's time to nominate a Sequiota Volunteer of the Year! If you know of a parent or family member who has gone above and beyond to volunteer at Sequiota, please take a moment to complete the form at the link below to nominate them for Volunteer of the Year! Thank you for helping us recognize one of our many dedicated volunteers!

Cold Weather

COLD: When temperatures are 32 degrees F or below and/or wind chill factor is 15 degrees F or below, there is an increased chance for hypothermia and frostbite. Students should be encouraged to wear layered clothing and limit exposure to outdoor temperatures. This includes recess and/or physical education. Students will not be going out for recess if when temperature and or wind chill is equal to or below 29 degrees.

Sequiota Elementary

Sequiota is a hidden treasure on the southeast side of Springfield! Over the last 50 years, Sequiota has changed in appearance but the values remain the same. We recently gathered to celebrate 50 years of education, success, community and family! Sequiota is a school where students come first and are at the heart of every decision made. Sequiota is home to some of the BEST families in Springfield! Sequiota would not have the ability to do all that it does without the support of our PTA. The Sequiota PTA truly has the students best interest at heart and serves as a huge foundation of Sequiota Elementary School. If you are looking for a school with a small community feel, you have come to the right place. At Sequiota, we are not just a school, we are a family that supports one another and collaborates to provide the BEST education possible for our students.
