2nd Quarter Is Here!

Good evening! I can't believe we are already beginning the 2nd Quarter of the school year! This Friday is the ANNUAL SEQUIOTA HOEDOWN! If you have not purchased your tickets, it's not too late! There will be a costume contest the evening of the Hoedown so make sure you dress in your best "Hoedown attire"! All students can wear their hoedown costumes the full day of school on Friday.

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.
