Picture Re-Take Day is Wednesday, October 29
Sacajawea Community Letter

Dear Sacajawea Community,

This week I'm looking forward to meeting many of you at our K-3 Curriculum Night.  This event is primarily for adults, and is a great time to meet your child's teachers and the Sacajawea staff, and learn about what your child will experience at school this year.  I hope to meet many of you on Wednesday, September 17, beginning at 6:30.

This week's highlight is the Parent Teacher Association Board.  This team is made up of representatives from parents and staff.  They work together to help us make Sacajawea a great place for students to learn and grow.  They provide resources to the school, opportuntities for volunteers to get involved, and community-building activities.  I encourage every parent and teacher to become a member, and get involved in this amazing group.  Last night, I attended the PTA Board Meeting and I was impressed with the thoughtfulness, professionalism, and caring of the members.  They are working hard for the Sacajawea Community.

Also, later this week I will be meeting with a variety of representatives of the groups responsible for the playground project.  I plan to provide a more comprehensive update on the project next week.

Free & Reduced Meal Benefits
Families must complete a new application for Free and Reduced Meal Benefits each year.  If you have not completed and submitted a new application by Wednesday, October 15, your students will be charged full price for school meals.  For more information, go to:  www.seattleschools.org/meals

Advance Learning Packets
The packets are available in the school office.
Student Release Procedures
Classroom teachers will walk ALL students to the lower playground and teachers will make sure all students are released to the appropriate person.  Any student not picked up after 10 minutes will be brought to the school office.

Bus riders will be released from the playground to go directly to their busses.  Students will line up outside the bus door until invited onto the bus by the driver.

Driver parent pick-up:  teachers will send students from the playground to Deb Olson at the back entrance of the school.

Students going to the Boys and Girls Club or to after school activities will be released to go from the playground.  Boys and Girls Club will meet children and check them in; students will walk to after school clubs and classes.

Students who walk home independently can be released from the lower playground.  They need to walk home, not stay and play on the playground.

November 2014 Parent Teacher Conferences
Families:  please make a note about Sacajawea's Parent Teacher Conference Schedule in November, 2014.  Staff will vote in August about which days are conference days, but they have traditionally been on the Saturday, Monday and Tuesday before Thanksgiving Day.  We want to alert parents to this schedule so that you won't schedule out-of-town vacation plans and miss being able to attend your student's conference.
