SPA Meeting this Thursday 5/17

Calling all Sequoia Parents!  Just a quick reminder that ALL parents are members of the Sequoia Parents Association (SPA) and are always invited to join us for our monthly meetings.  Our last official meeting of this school year will be held in the Library this Thursday evening, 5/17, at 7pm.  We invite you to join us to say thank you to the outgoing Board members and welcome our recently-elected new members.

As always, it takes a large number of dedicated volunteers to make all our dreams for Sequoia a reality, and we have some key roles for next year to fill; please think about how you can contribute and let us know where you would like to help!  Thank you!

Spring Cleaning FUNDrive – June 2, 2018

Sequoia families, it’s time for some Spring Cleaning! We’re partnering with a thrift store company called Savers/Value Village to help you clean out your closets, donate your gently used items to those in need, keep unwanted items out of landfills, and raise a little money for SPA all at the same time!

Savers will pay by the pound for goods we collect. Items they accept include: clothing, shoes, accessories (belts, hats, purses, etc.), jewelry, bedding and towels, CDs/DVDs, books, small electrical items (in working condition), toys & games, kitchen items, knick knacks, and sporting goods. Please do NOT include larger items like large appliances, furniture, TVs or monitors.

As you’re cleaning up your homes over the next few weeks, please collect clothes and household goods in kitchen-sized (13 gal) trash bags. You can also ask your family, friends, and neighbors for any donations they may have to contribute. Then bring all of your bags to school on Saturday, June 2nd, from 9-11am. We will need some parent volunteers to help collect everything and deliver to the Savers facility.

If you have any questions, please check out the Savers FUNDrive website or contact SPA at sequoiaspa@gmail.com. Thank you!
