In an effort to “Go Green” we only print our first School Newsletter to be sent home in our Hawk’s Folder Distribution. Staring the second week of school the school newsletter and most attachments will be emailed to you via our weekly classroom email distribution, unless you request a hard copy in the office.

Classroom newsletters are printed on the reverse side of your child(ren)’s weekly planner and should be brought home by your student on Monday.

We appreciate your support of our efforts to reduce wasted paper, please make sure to add our school email account: to your safe senders list.





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.

Please watch for additional details about clubs and programs being offered on upcoming ERDs and feel free to contact us if you have additional ideas and or suggestions.
