Dear Parents/Guardians:

We are entering the home stretch with only 13 days of school left until Winter Break! Parents, we need your support to end the semester strong. Please make sure your student attends school every day and arrives to school on time. Also, please take the time to check your student’s PowerSchool, and make sure they are completing all assignments- failure to complete assignments is the number one cause for failing grades.

PSAT scores are available starting this week on College Board- make sure to ask your student to check their email for their score release date. We had several student artists attend National Portfolio Day on Saturday, and our Varsity Robotics Team won the Judge’s Award at their first tournament of the year. Our Varsity Girls basketball team remains undefeated, and the Boys’ continue to impress with their efforts.

Parents, another friendly reminder that during pick up and drop off, you are not to drive on the easement or dirt at any time. Doing so creates an unsafe environment for our students and other drivers. We ask that you please abide by staff direction during pick-up and dismissal, as student safety is always our top priority.

A friendly reminder that you can find the dates, times and locations of all of our students’ games at sequoiapathway.org>Calendar>Featured Events or directly through this link: http://www.sequoiapathway.org/calendar/featured_events/

Dec. 15th - Holiday Concert
