Sequoyah High School students and teachers recently finished the first quarter of the 2019-2020 school year. So many exciting events have already occurred and so many more are yet to come.
The football team had their first victory on Sept. 13th against Muldrow. The band is busy preparing for pep assemblies, parades, and marching competitions. Fast pitch softball and volleyball are well into their seasons and cross country has brought home several medals.
The freshmen are adjusting to life in high school and already made a strong statement at the school's first pep assembly. We are expecting great things from the Class of 2023. The seniors are busy with planning out their final year at Sequoyah and prom plans are being prepared by the junior class and their sponsors. There has even been talk among the sophomore class about how they are going to win the spirit stick from the juniors at the next pep assembly.
During "Late Start Fridays" the teachers at Sequoyah High School have various opportunities of professional development. Recently, the training focused on Office 365 and OneNote and how this technology can be utilized in the classroom by the teachers and students. The teachers have also been working diligently setting up new staff pages on the school's new and improved website.
Exciting things are happening in the classroom as well! The Yearbook staff began work on this year's yearbook, Coach Jones' Native American History class is preparing presentations about the history of Sequoyah's football program, AVID will tour NSU NASC, and Achieve classes have been working hard on their ICAPs.
So much more is going on at Sequoyah. Stay tuned for more updates!

During the summer the Sequoyah High School went through a dramatic change. Ms. Brant, the librarian, and several student volunteers spent hours "genrefying" the fiction collection. Now as students enter the library to select a book they can go directly to the genre of preference. The organization is similar to a bookstore, which will allow students and teachers the ease of staying within their typical genre or branch out to new selections. There are 10 genres: Mysteries/thrillers, adventure/sports, science fiction, romance, Native American, fantasy, horror, historical fiction, realistic fiction, and classics. The process also helped make room for new books by discarding old or never-read books.
The 2019 school year has started and it looks like it will be a great year! Events will be posted on the school's Facebook page, our new website, and Twitter. Please feel free to contact the school with any questions.
