New New Sequoia Elementary Website

Looks like the district updated the school URL recently.  The new address is very simple, compared to the prior address.

http://ses.mdusd.org.

We have this linked at www.SequoiaParentsAssociation.com on the right of the page about midway down (see the school link image).  This appears on every page of the SPA website.

AIOD Evening Registration

We’re adding an evening session to All-In-One Day.  We’ll open the MUR doors again at 6pm and close at them 7:30.  We have fewer volunteers for this session, so we need to limit the number of registrants.  We’ll be able to accommodate 20 families for each half hour we are open.

Please access this form to reserve your spot.  When available slots fill up, the option to select will no longer appear in the form.

If this session is popular and is a positive experience for families, we’ll do it again next year!

Contact us if you have questions.  Click here to access our AIOD page for more information and required forms.

See you at AIOD on Thursday the 17th!

Sequoia Clean Up Day-Saturday, Sept. 23rd

The Sequoia Elementary clean up day is happening on Saturday morning, September 23rd, 8:30am-noon.  We can use volunteers as well as donations of plants to beautify our campus.  As we all know, it was a pretty warm summer and lots of plants needs to be replaced.  To volunteer go to: http://www.ci.pleasant-hill.ca.us/541/Sequoia-Elementary-Cleanup.  We know Saturday mornings are often busy with sports etc.. and appreciate any time you can give.  If you can donate plants, please contact Dee Dee Tully at dhsteven@yahoo.com.

Our AIOD information page is available!

We have our AIOD page up at the SPA site.  Click through to have a look.  Find important dates, required AIOD forms, volunteer information, and more.  Let us know if you have questions by clicking here to open our contact us form.

We want to stress the importance of submitting online rather than paper forms this year.  In particular, the directory form should be completed online if at all possible.  It is challenging for SPA volunteers to read handwriting on paper forms, so parents submitting online simplifies our process and improves data quality.

Form submissions are encrypted and data is not shared outside of SPA or school staff.

What is the directory?  It is a paper booklet distributed by SPA in September that includes student and family contact information, bell schedule, class makeup, and other important information families reference throughout the school year.

See you at AIOD!
