Dear Sequoia Community,
We are ending a wonderful first week of school. As I walked through our classrooms this week, I observed community building, collaborative work on projects, happy and excited middle schoolers, students making new friends and a very loud lunch room; a truly successful opening of the year.
In all grade levels, teachers have been sending home course outlines and student expectation handouts. Please take a moment to review them with your child, sign and return if requested by your child’s teacher.
Every student should have textbooks for English/Language Arts, Math, Science and History that are for home use only. If students do not have a complete set of textbooks, please come see us in the office.
Our Back to School Night is Sept. 17th. Classroom presentations will begin at 6:45pm and conclude at 8:40pm. All parents will receive a Sequoia map and their student’s schedule prior to Back to School Night. We encourage you to attend so that you can meet your child’s teachers and learn about classroom expectations and curriculum for each subject. Parking will be available on the blacktop. I look forward to seeing you on campus at our Back to School Night event.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact us by phone or e-mail; we are here to support all students.
The Sequoia Middle School staff and I are looking forward to a great 2014-2015 school year with your students!
