A Note from the Principal

Hello Sacajawea families,

Our primary grade students have been shining in the classroom this past week. In kindergarten, students worked on writing addition equations to help solve word problems. Our first graders are reading poems and learned to identify key parts including stanzas, rhymes, and figurative language. Second graders have been reading about different habitats and working with partners to write about the different types of animals and plants in each habitat.

In partnership,
Barry Fisk
