My Old Collaboration Reach Out Mission: To influence students to "Reach Out" to their peers and make a difference in their school and local community. This will occur when students: 1) Act as role models. 2) Act responsibly. 3) Spread feelings of pride and respect. 4) Persevere through tough situations. 5) Turn negative actions and words into positive ones. 6) SMILE! Founders: Kelly McDougall, Crystal Cantley, John Webb, Jessie Garabedian, Mike Zwicker, and Brittany Carriero I am very proud of what we accomplished in Reach Out. We started from scratch and ended up with an unofficial school club, many students eager to make a change at Sequoya, and many students who finally did make a change at Sequoya both personally and socially.
My Biggest Success in TEAM So Far Creating a website has been my biggest success in TEAM so far. Prior to TEAM I was always so puzzled as to how websites were made and never realized how complicated creating one can be! However, I learned how to keep things simple but sophisticated which I am truly grateful for.
