Sequoia High School IB Information Meeting Jan. 14
ROPES Presentations, Judges Needed
We are still looking for parents and community members that would like to serve as a judge for the ROPES (Rite of Passage Experiences) presentations next month. ROPES are challenging projects that 4th, 6th and 8th grade students have completed which allow them to learn about their world and themselves in a deeper but fun way. Thank you to the many volunteers who have signed up already.
There are 3 opportunities to judge:
Monday, Feb 3, 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Tuesday, Feb 4, 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Wednesday, Feb 5, 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm
We would not be able to maintain this valuable program without the support of our community. We are asking for you to join district staff and other community members by volunteering to serve as a judge on one of our judging panels. Typically, we have two to three judges per room and they judge four to six student presentations in an evening.
We hope that you will be able to join us in this worthwhile event.
If you are able to judge on any/all of those days, please contact Veronica Rickson either via email at [email protected] or by phone at 650-590-5926. Thank You!
Measure N Parcel Tax Information
Currently, each San Carlos homeowner pays $246.60 towards the Parcel Tax, which funds teacher salaries and keeping classroom sizes smaller. This tax is set to expire in 2021. The ballot measure is to renew and increase this tax by an additional $88, raising $3,000,000 annually, for 8 years. Taxes raised can ONLY be used locally in our schools and are restricted to:
- Attracting and retaining qualified and experienced teachers
- Maintaining small class sizes
- Maintaining programs that support bringing all students up to the highest level possible in core subjects like math, reading, and writing
- Maintaining math, hands-on science, technology, and engineering programs
- Providing art, music, libraries, and a well-rounded education
This tax is not EXTRA funding but instead is CRUCIAL to operating our district. The funding gap is currently being bridged through local parcel taxes, SCEF, and community partnerships such as the one we have with Sequoia Healthcare District. Additionally, senior citizen homeowners 65 years or older are eligible for an exemption through an application process should they feel it is a financial hardship.

Join Us for the Annual SCSD Musical, Jan. 23-26
True to the original Footloose story about a Chicago teen who discovers that dancing is outlawed in the small town he's just moved to, Getting to Know FOOTLOOSE is a shorter, family-friendly version of the original hit movie. You'll enjoy all the popular dance tunes, including "Let's Hear It for the Boy," the hit Footloose theme, "Holding Out for a Hero," and ‘"Almost Paradise." The annual school district musical is always a sell-out, and everyone loves the exhilerating music and dancing in Footloose, so reserve your seats early.
