A Note from the Principal

Hello Sacajawea Families

I am pleased to report that our first in person assembly in three years was  huge success. The time that students and staff put in practicing how to SHINE at assemblies paid big dividends.  We sang and signed he school song and introduced all of the our student council members. It was also great great to see so many students and staff dressed up for our sports themed spirit day. A big shout out to Ms. Teague for taking the lead in teaching classes the song in preparation for this day!
