The Sequiota Scoop

A weekly glance at what's happening at Sequiota Elementary

December 7th-11th

Good Morning Sequiota Families!

It's going to be a busy week at Sequiota! Our K, 1 and 5th grade Singsations will be performing tomorrow evening in the APR beginning at 6:00 p.m. I regret that I will be unable to attend, my son has a Christmas Performance at the exact same time. I look forward to seeing the performances on video! I know our Indians will be great!

  • We have a ton of coats & sweatshirts in the Lost & Found in the APR. Please come in this week and take a look to make sure they don't belong to your child. If not claimed by Friday, we will donate what is left to the Clothing Bank. We have had all clothes on display on a table near the microwaves and also hanging on the rack in the Lost & Found.

  • School is dismissed at 3:35 p.m. and car line ends around 3:50 p.m. Please make sure you are picking your child up on time. We appreciate the many of you who arrive on time, each and every day!
  • December is a time of giving for most families, please consider giving to your child's teacher by sending them a note of recognition using the link below!

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.
