Welcome to Sequoyah Elementary School! Sequoyah is a H.A.P.P.Y. place to learn. We are a neighborhood K-4 elementary school located in the heart of Russellville.

The faculty and staff at Sequoyah are committed to providing rigor and relevance to students in a collaborative learning community. Our goal is to develop the whole child while maintaining high expectations which help each student realize his or her potential. We deliver a rich core curriculum utilizing best practices associated with the comprehensive literacy model, cognitively guided math instruction, science, and social studies, as well as character education. In addition, students participate in a variety of enrichment classes in physical education, music, art, library, computer and science lab weekly, and counseling bi-weekly. Our outdoor classroom is complete for students and teachers to enjoy!

Sequoyah is fortunate to have a strong Parent Teacher Organization and wonderful community involvement. They provide many resources, time and talent to the school. One of the great programs supported by PTO is the Sequoyah PTO Student Tutor Program where volunteers provide one-on-one tutoring and positive role models for our students. We welcome visitors to join us for lunch or to attend our many special events.

I am honored to have joined the professional, caring staff at Sequoyah Elementary! It is my sincere desire to put student needs at the heart of every decision we make. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. Enjoy perusing our website!
