Dear Parents,

I would like to welcome everyone back and hope that everyone had a safe, joyous holiday and a happy new year.  The first semester has come and gone faster than we wanted it to.  The second semester will go just as fast with all the activities ahead of us this semester.  Our students have been very busy with all the extra curricular activities that they have going on within the school  district.  This will be a very busy semester for seniors as they prepare for graduation as well as planning for their future. Seniors and senior parents stay on top of scholarship and scholarship due dates. Also, be sure to have your child check their school email regularly for scholarship applications.  You should have received in the mail your child's first semester grades as well as their state test score results along with a letter explaining the test results.

-          The 2017 State tests reflect new, more rigorous academic standards.  The score required to pass the test is  also very different.

-          Because of these changes, any comparison between 2017 test scores and 2016 scores would be invalid.

-           Test scores are merely one piece of information.  When test scores come seven months after students are tested, we simply move on without them and focus on the next set of standards set before us at each grade level.  The late delivery of these test results has in no way kept our teachers from focusing on the individual needs of students.

-          The overall scores for each grade may seem low as well, but we are still very close to the state average in all areas.  This is also due to the extreme changes in the tests.

Sequoyah believes in meeting and keeping  high expectation for our students. Sequoyah’s teachers and staff  will continuously strive to meet  those high expectations, but our most important mission is to create the lifelong love of learning and preparing our students to be “college and career ready.”  If we continue to instill these qualities into our students then the rest will take care of itself.

If you have any questions about these test results, or anything else regarding your student’s education, please feel free to contact us. (918) 341-0642

Parents please take advantage of the opportunity to monitor your child’s grades and attendance through our student grade book program.  There will always be a direct correlation between poor grades and poor attendance in the classroom.  You may contact Jackie Francis at the high school to get access to your password.  If at anytime you have any questions or concerns please, feel free to contact us at the high school 918-341-0642.
