A Note from the Principal

Hello Sacajawea Families,

We had our second assembly this week and it was a big success. We started with student council presenting our land and labor acknowledgements. Then Ms. Teague partnered with her fourth grade students to lead students and staff in our school song. We finished with the student council sharing two of the 13 principles of Black Lives Matter at School Week. Next Wednesday we are excited to bring back the tradition of Shining Stars. This is where students have the opportunity to share a special talent that they have been practicing.

In partnership,

Barry Fisk
