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 ROPES@scsdk8.org or by phone at 650-590-5926. Thank You!

Make Plans to Attend the Chicken's Ball Variety Show Fundraiser
80 years ago, the show raised milk money for San Carlos students. Now, money raised specifically supports art and music supplies in our schools. For example, Mariposa staff and students now have a beautiful mural to brighten the halls because of the money raised at the last Chickens' Ball. Tierra Linda students gained a ceramics class, supplied with clay and glaze. How much can we raise for our students this time? The goal is to raise over $40K to continue to support our programs.The more money we raise, the more we give back to our students.
Gather your friends and family and come cheer on your community. Tickets are on sale now for our 7 shows! Evening and matinee performances are on March 13-15, March 20-22. https://www.chickensball.org/buy-tickets
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.
