Sequoyah School: Reconnecting with the Students

This week, Sequoyah School’s 7th and 8th grade students would have been headed to the Klamath River for a 9 day camping trip, the final lower school trip for the 8th graders and a major milestone in Sequoyah’s Field Studies Program. To pay tribute to its students and acknowledge the sense of loss everyone is feeling, Sequoyah School’s field studies faculty have organized sessions throughout the week to reconnect with students and provide a few of the key elements and traditions that would otherwise be found on their trip.

Today, they met via Zoom for guided meditation and mini solo time, followed by a small group debrief. Solo time is a key element of every Sequoyah field studies trip. Please enjoy these images of solo from the Jr. High’s trips to Pinnacles National Park this past Fall and to the Grand Canyon last Spring. Sequoyah School is proud of the strength and resilience the students are exhibiting during this challenging time.
