Message from our Principal

Hello Sacajawea families,

I am pleased to share that the return of assemblies at Sacajawea has been a huge success!

Beginning in February, we have had the chance to learn and perform our school song, celebrate monthly spirit days, and hear from our student council about important topics including Black Lives Matter at school, our new school suggestion box for students, and the return of Shining Stars. Shining Star student performances so far have included a song about personal boundaries, a violin solo, and gymnastics.

Our next assembly is April 5, additionally it is Book Character Day. Students and staff are encouraged to dress like their favorite book character. Also, a friendly reminder to please help our school community stay safe by remembering to shut the gate behind you when dropping off students on the upper playground in the morning.

In partnership,

Barry Fisk
Principal, Sacajawea Elementary
