Several special events will occur during the school year and will be publicized with details for your information. Sebastian traditionally holds the following annual special events:
Fall Festival is an in-school fun afternoon of games, food and contests held at the end of October. Students purchase tickets to participate in the activities of their choice. Parent participation includes providing baked goods and helping with the assorted team game booths during the festival hours. All proceeds from the event go toward defraying the cost of student activities.
Science Fair provides students with the opportunity to showcase their science knowledge. Participation is encouraged for 6th graders and is a requirement for 7th and 8th graders. School winners will move on to county competition. Each year Sebastian has proudly sent students on to district and state competitions.
Multi-cultural Fair is held in the spring each year. This is a thematic fair based on a school-wide unit of study. The event features crafts, cultural items, productions and food representative of the unit(s) of study. The community is invited to participate and attend this evening open house that showcases student work.
