8th Grade Chief Walk and Awards Ceremony

CHIEF WALK – CLASS 2019 Thursday May 28th @ 12:45pm beginning at the Sequoyah HS Tennis Courts

Parents who want to be a part of the 2015 Chief Walk, which begins at the Sequoyah HS Tennis Courts, may park at SHS starting at 12:30PM and proceed directly to the sidewalk along the courts. Parents will need to be on either side of the walkways as the eighth grade students will travel down these sidewalks to access the high school. Parents are asked not be on the SHS campus prior to 12:30PM.

You may park in one of the following lots:  SHS Junior parking lot, which is directly in front of DRMS or SHS Senior parking lot, which is on the left as you enter the main drive to the school 

Award Ceremony – CLASS 2019

Parents who plan to only attend the award ceremony will park at Sequoyah and enter the High School through the main entrance and proceed to the gym. The ceremony will take place immediately after the Chief Walk at approximately 1:00PM.

NOTE: If your student will be checking out from Sequoyah HS following the ceremony, the student must turn in a note signed by the parent to his/her homeroom teacher on the morning of Thursday May 28th. If the student does not turn in a note they will be required to return to Dean Rusk to be checked out by a parent.
