Journey to Success

Journey to Success

Here at Sequoia we are making it our aim to ensure our students are "Reaching New Heights on their Journey to Success". This means continuing to prepare them each year to meet the expectations of the California Common Core State Standards, so that they are ready for college and career in their futures. This year we we will also continue to place an emphasis on careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) with our Project Lead the Way Program in GATE classrooms. We want students to know that there are many careers in the sciences that they have never heard of and even more that have not been created yet. Our students will set goals for their SBAC scores and their behavior. To support these goals, we have also established a positive behavior reinforcement program. Each week that classes have a "successful" behavior week, they get to have their team hot air balloon (designed by each class) on the "Journey to Success" wall in the cafeteria.
