Career Day 2018!
On March 14th we will be holding our 5th Annual Career Day, when over 40 presenters will present to Sequoia students on a wide-range of professions. Career Day is a student favorite and a great way to be involved with Sequoia Middle School.
Career Day Presenters: Do you have a job you would be willing to talk about with our students? Perhaps a friend of family member has an interesting career and is great with 11-14 year olds? Open the attached Presenter Letter and Presenter Form to get more details about this fun and rewarding experience. Forms can be turned into the PFC box in the main office. (Attached Below)
Career Day Planning Committee: If you are interested, have questions or would like to be involved in planning Career Day, please join us on Friday, December 15th (right after Tea with Honey) from 9-10 in the library.

December Character Trait: Caring
It’s December and the perfect month to talk about CARING at Sequoia. During this month we will be providing our students opportunities for personal growth and development. They will be encouraged to step outside themselves and show others they care. From sending CARE-grams, to making chalk murals on the blacktop for all to see, it is our intention to help students become more caring, compassionate, empathetic young people!
