From the Principal

Principal's Welcome Letter

Hello Sequoia Families,

Welcome to another great year! I am looking forward to serving as Sequoia Middle School's principal. Sequoia Middle School has a reputation of excellence. As I enter into my eighteenth year with Redding School District, I am proud to call myself a Sequoia Spartan! Sequoia is a school filled with opportunities and diverse programs that captures the interest of each student. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce Molly Stimpel, Assistant Principal at Sequoia. Mrs. Stimpel has been serving Redding School district for 24 years.

Please remember that school begins at 8:30 am and ends at 3:00 pm. Also, each Wednesday (except the first and last Wednesday of the year) is a minimum day. Minimum days allow teachers and staff to work together to plan and focus on individual student learning and programs that challenge all students.

You are always welcome to call or stop by our office if you need to ask questions, etc.  We will be happy to help you. Sequoia's number is 225-0020.

We are looking forward to this year and the promise of growth for our students.

Cindy Bishop
