High School Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

Welcome back!  I hope that everyone had a safe, relaxing, and enjoyable summer.  We are happy to be back and are looking forward to a great 2017-2018 school year at Sequoyah High School.  Like the beginning of every school year there are always changes and this upcoming school year will be no different.  This will be the first time in 16 years that Mr. Johnson will not be here as the High School Principal.  I have the big and difficult task of filling Mr. Johnsons shoes.  I feel very fortunate to have been chosen to replace Mr Johnson and look forward to the new opportunity.  I began my teaching/coaching career 14 years ago at McDonald County High School in Anderson Missouri with stops at Jay, Sequoyah, Vinita, Hennessey, Salina, and now Principal at Sequoyah High School.  I am looking forward to seeing former students, establishing great working relationships with my faculty, renewing old friendships in the community , and establishing new ones.  

The beginning of the school year is a very busy time.  Students are having to change from their summer routine of staying up late and sleeping in to getting up early to get to school which sometimes can be a difficult transition period when school starts.  It is important for students to be proactive and manage their time wisely so that they can stay ahead and not fall behind when it comes to class work.  Encourage your children to get a good night's sleep so they they can perform at the highest level.

Be sure to take advantage of the opportunity to monitor your child’s grade and attendance through our student grade book system.  Contact Jackie Francis our school Librarian at the High School to access your password.  If you have any questions, concerns, or need assistance contacting a teacher call the High School (918)-341-0642
