#115 – Sedona Red Rock High School Grad
365 Reasons to Live in Sedona

Greetings from Rob & Pam Schabatka – Broker/Owners of REMAX Sedona

When talking to most Sedona residents you will find that there are few people who have grown up among the Red Rocks of Sedona AZ. Many people move to Arizona, Sedona in particular, from various places in the U.S. and from across the world. Well not the “Sedona Kids”. Since Sedona Red Rock High School opened its doors in 1995, there has been a special bond between the children growing up in Sedona.

Living in a small town such as Sedona, there are many things to appreciate; adults often see this more clearly than the youth growing up. Whether it be lack of big city knowledge or the longing to go out and experience the world away from the Red Rocks; there’s something unique about the young adults raised here. We saw this so clearly at the 2012 Graduation at Sedona Red Rock High School.

On May 23, the class of 2012 departed from SRRHS and began their future, many travelling to one of the three Arizona Universities: NAU, ASU & U of A. At the commencement ceremony we heard from 5 students who spoke more about their friendships and cherished memories with their fellow students than their futures plans. We found this so heartwarming because unlike most High Schools, Red Rock has a small number of students who sincerely connect with each other.

We also heard from a very proud principal, congratulating his class for making SRHHS an excelling school for another consecutive year. He also spoke to numerous individual students on their achievements, academically & in various extracurricular activities – which is what SRRHS prides itself on.

We feel that SRRHS, as a whole, is a reason to live in Sedona because the teachers have a passion for teaching & mentoring the students, the administration cares enough to know each student personally and the community support allows students to flourish in every aspect of their High School careers.

From the time you first enter the school campus to the last time you walk across the football field, you can feel the warmth of the continuous compassion and love.

As for the Sedona Kids that graduated this year, we applaud you and wish you the very best in life. Like teacher Karyl Goldsmith said, you will miss Sedona, these Red Rocks, and mostly the people in the community. Always know, we love you and forever will welcome you back with open arms.

#114 – Sedona Cinco de Mayo Festival
365 Reasons to Live in Sedona

Greetings from Rob & Pam Schabatka – Broker/Owners of REMAX Sedona

Vibrant. Charming. Rich with heritage.

Sedona did what it does best this weekend with the Cinco de Mayo Festival at Tlaquepaque Arts & Craft Village! Festivities were none less than astounding. Like all things in Sedona, the Cinco de Mayo Festival 2012 was full of elegance, flavorful cuisine & outstanding entertainment and art shows.

The festivities began on Friday, May 4th, 2012 with Sedona’s monthly First Friday Art Walks. On Saturday morning at 11am, Tlaquepaque was taken over by Mariachi’s who walked the pebble streets of the Village while playing in Calle Independencia. Throughout the day there were various live performances with Mexican influence such as Folklorico Dancers.

This free Sedona event was kid friendly with face painting, Pinata hitting & much more! All in all we recommend for you to plan your Sedona Vacation for next May and don’t miss the Sedona AZ Cinco De Mayo Festival!
