Greetings Sequoia Academy Eagle Families!

Welcome to the 2023 - 2024 school year! We are thrilled to welcome our Eagle students and staff back to
school. We hope that you were able to relax, enjoy great experiences, and make lasting memories with
your friends and families this summer. Now it’s time to look forward to a wonderful new school year as we
welcome our Eagles back to engage in meaningful learning experiences and continue to move toward
reaching our goals at Sequoia Academy!

Our enthusiastic and incredible staff have been working throughout the summer to prepare classrooms for
the new school year. We are grateful to our amazing custodial staff as they worked all summer getting our
school in pristine shape. Our office staff, Miss Missy, Miss Wendy, Miss Susana, and Nurse Kat, are working
hard to ensure a smooth start for staff, students, and families.

Sequoia Academy is such a special place to learn and grow. We are proud of our diverse school and have
high expectations for every student. Our students are kind, compassionate, and eager to learn. Together
with our dedicated staff, we strive to make connections with students to help them feel valued, accepted,
and safe. Our Sequoia Academy vision of “high achievement, health, safety, and well-being for Sequoia
students” will continue to guide us in providing a rigorous, motivating, and inclusive learning environment.
Our overarching goal is to encourage active student engagement to foster a lifetime love for learning.
Collaborating with families is crucial to promote a healthy transition to school both socially and emotionally.
We recognize that students may be feeling anxious with the start of a new school year and we will continue
to place a strong emphasis on social emotional learning while focusing on building classroom community.
We encourage families to stay connected and informed by following our district website and
announcements sent through ParentSquare.
