On July 20th, Sequoia Village School welcomed Arizona Department of Education superintendent Diane Douglas. Ms. Douglas enjoyed a tour of the school’s grounds and a little light reading with students.
“One of the most invigorating things I can get to do is come and visit students. We get so involved in the discussions of adults of how to manage schools and education, but when you need a great day, come to the classroom and visit the kids. I am delighted to have that opportunity today,” Ms. Douglas said. “Education is the most important thing we do as a state and we owe it to our children to make sure they have the education they need to fulfill their goals, their dreams and their God given gifts and talents. I encourage all parents to know what to expect each step of the way. It is the school and teacher’s job to teach, but it is the parents’ responsibility to make sure at the end of the road that their children are well educated and well prepared for their future lives. Parents need to know what is expected of their child from grade to grade and make sure the school is teaching what they should be. We assume that most are, but it is a parent’s duty to know that. I always encourage them to get involved and please, please, please come to parent teacher conferences and get actively engaged with your child’s education because it is classroom teachers and parents that teach our children,” she added.
Sequoia Village School is located at 982 Full House Lane in Show Low.
