Welcome to the 2021-2022 Sequoia Middle School Parent Teacher Student Association!
My name is Melanie Meixner and I am this year’s PTSA President. My family moved to Newbury Park 4 years ago. We came from San Clemente with a little detour in Salt Lake City. I have 2 daughters, both of whom have attended Sequoia Middle School. I worked at a few of my children’s’ schools in the past, as well as volunteered at on the Cypress PTA.
I am sure that we are all anxiously awaiting this new school year and a little more normality in our students’ lives. Personally, I am happy to put last year behind us and start fresh. Let’s all give ourselves a round of applause for getting through a really tough year. Although we don’t know exactly how this year will play out, I am happy that the students will be back on campus full time. And a big change on campus as we return this year… we are very excited to welcome our new Principal- Karla DiDomizio! We will be sad for Mrs. Chambers’ departure, but are so lucky to have Mrs. DiDomizio fill her shoes. Be sure to congratulate her when you see her. ☺
I have found that being part of the Sequoia PTA helps me to get to know the staff and teachers, other parents and keeps me updated and informed on the school calendar and events. (Which my kids sometimes forget to tell me about). I am big proponent of communication, so if you feel you are missing any info, please feel free to reach out.
Volunteering with the PTSA is incredibly rewarding. Please jump in where you can. Here is a little bit about what the Sequoia PTSA does. The Sequoia PTSA is a volunteer organization and our success is greatly dependent on parents like you volunteering to help at events, by joining the PTSA and by supporting our fundraisers.
