What's Happening in the Lower...


Here come the holidays!

What a great start to fall with typical Oklahoma weather of shorts one day and big coats the next! We have had such a busy time over the last few weeks.

During early November our classes spent time discussing our veteran's, made thank you notes/pictures, and distributed them to area veterans. Our 1st and 2nd grade were able to march again in the Claremore Veteran's Day Parade. Sequoyah Lower Elementary thanks our veterans! Also, thank you goes out to all of you that attend our events like, the Sequoyah Carnival, Cinnamon Rolls with Grandparents, the Book Fair, Parent-Teacher Conferences, Donuts with Dad and many other times which help support our students. The love of this community is so deep and outreaching!

On that note…our Good Samaritan Canned Food Drive beings on Monday, November 13th and ends Friday the 17th. We had a very successful Canned Food Drive last year lead by our 5th grade leaders. I am very pleased to say that that last year the elementary easily surpassed its goal and brought in 2,920 canned/boxed items. These were donated to Good Samaritans and will definitely ease the burden of feeding many struggling families. Thank you for helping us to help others!

Important Dates to Note:

November 13 – 17th - Canned Food Drive

November 22-24th - No School – Thanksgiving Break

December 15th - Box Top label drawing – Keep sending them in to raise free funds!

December 19th - End of 2nd Qtr. / 1st Semester

Christmas Break – December 20th through January 3rd

Classes Resume – Thursday, January 4, 2018

January 11th – Report cards sent home (district wide)

As we move through chilly fall & winter days, please be aware of our ever-changing Oklahoma weather and send your child in weather appropriate clothing. All of the students do make brief outside trips to and from their ‘Specials’ and the cafeteria every day. 1st and 2nd grade also go out to morning recess most days from 8 - 8:20 am. 

Our semester will end on December 20th, which is our last day of classes before Christmas Break. We want to wish you safe and meaningful holiday wishes! This is a time for caring, thankfulness, and giving.

Thank you for all that you do,

Lisa Rader
