A Message from our Principal

Dear Sacajawea Community,

The assembly on Wednesday was jam packed with presentations and performances from our student body. Ms. Madres first grade class shared all the exciting thing they have been learning in honor of Asian American Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander month. Among other things we got to see a non la or traditional Vietnamese hat, learn how to properly use chopsticks, and hear about sampling a variety of delicious foods. We were also treated to  a singing duet of the song Someday from two of our Shining Star second graders. The assembly finished with a presentation from two fifth graders about how students can sort and clean up from lunch so that garbage, recycling and compost are all utilized properly.  

The Art and Science Fair is fast approaching. We hope to see you all on Saturday June 3 at 12:00 on the lower playground.  

In partnership,

Barry Fisk
Principal, Sacajawea Elementary
