We are continuing with our Early Release Day (ERD) schedule this year. Our ERDs are the first and third Wednesday of every month (September through May); our Kindergarten-6th grade students will be released at 12:00pm, and our Middle School students will be released at 12:15pm. These ERD's allow for the Professional Development of our amazing teachers and staff and provides us an opportunity for collaboration and a sharing of Best Practices.
During these ERDs there are several opportunities available for your children:
- Club M is offering a special rate for their new ERD Program which runs from 12:00-3:00pm only on ERDs.
- Special tutoring programs are offered (by invitation) for students who may benefit from an extra work time, in a small group environment, on subjects like Radical Report Writing, Narrative Story Telling, and Wacky Wednesdays which covers language and math skills.
- Wherever possible, our Sports Teams are conducting earlier practices. Please watch for updates about each team's practices from our Athletic Director, Des Thomas.
- The Sequoia Middle School team is hosting a special extended Study Hall program for Middle School students on ERDs.
