Supply Kits – Last Day to Order, June 30th

The countdown is here!  June 30th is the last day to pre-order your classroom supply kits for 2018-19.  Ordering your kits now gets them delivered to your student’s classroom by the first day of school.  Better yet is that you don’t have to go shopping around town to find all the items that you need at the last minute.  Take advantage of this great opportunity and order your kit(s) by June 30th.

SPA is hosting our 3rd annual FREE end-of-year party on the last day of school. Bring the entire family for great fun and a chance to be with classmates and friends one last time for the 2017-18 school year. It is a great opportunity for 5th graders to enjoy final farewells and for all students to celebrate their accomplishments and growth. There will be a bounce house for the kids, a DJ, and a ton of potluck food!  SPA will provide some non-alcoholic drinks as well as beer & wine; please bring something to share for our potluck dinner.

See you at Pleasant Hill Community Center (320 Civic Dr, PH) on Thursday, June 7, starting at 5:30 pm!

Did we mention this party is FREE?  No fundraising, no need to rsvp, just come hang out and have fun!

PH Fourth of July 5K Fun Run

Once the again, the City of Pleasant Hill is planning a big celebration for the Fourth of July this summer.  The day kicks off with the popular Firecracker 5K Fun Run.  Here’s the cool part: the Pleasant Hill 4th of July Commission donates the net proceeds from the event to local schools; the amount of funds that Sequoia receives depends on the number of participants from our school.

During the registration process, participants will be asked to designate a Pleasant Hill school to receive the net proceeds of their registration fees.  So the more people we recruit to run on behalf of Sequoia, the more money we can raise!

Race Registration is already open at; save $5 if you register before June 3.  Please share with your family and friends and remind them to designate Sequoia Elementary as their target school!

Final Reimbursements for the School Year

Parents and Teachers – Please submit all reimbursements to SPA no later than Thursday 5/31 to allow enough time for checks to be written and signed before the last day of school. Also, please note that reimbursements should be emailed in one .PDF file to the Treasurer or put in the Treasurer folder in the copy room. There have been several reimbursements found in other folders and can cause reimbursements to get overlooked. Thank you for your help with this and feel free to reach out to SPA with any questions.
