Need Help - Assembling Lab Tables - SAC STEM Center

Know someone who loves to put furniture together.  I (Mr. Webster) need a couple people to help me assemble several lab tables for our new STEM Center at Sacajawea.  We are super excited to get this up and running.  If you are available to help on Saturday or Sunday, please go to this Doodle Poll (LINK) to let me know your availability.  Possible work times include Saturday AM, Saturday Afternoon, or Sunday Afternoon.

Email ( or call at school (208-455-3333x1437) if you have questions.

No major tools or expertise needed.  Just willing hands.

This is what the tables will look like when they are assembled.

SAC 5th Graders Study Stream Science

Mrs. Rudan's 5th grade class had the chance to travel to the Boise Water Shed to do some hands-on science related to streams. What a great opportunity to do STEM learning that matters.

Rotation #1: Toilet horseshoes and water testing for turbidity, pH, temp &  oxygen

Rotation #2: Macro invertebrate collection and identification

Rotation #3: Tour of "the chocolate river"... right after lunch 🤪🤢

Rotation #4: Hands-on Educational center

We are so proud of our students, and the way they represent our community.

Box Tops for Sacajawea’s Music Program

This year money from box tops will go to buy new music and instruments for Sacajawea Elementary School’s music program.  You can still clip the box tops, but now you can scan them as well.  Eventually, the clipped box tops will be phased out.  See below for information on how to scan box tops.  We appreciate everyone who collects box tops to support our music program!

A Book and A Bite 2019 Has Started in Caldwell!

Sacajawea Elementary was anxiously waiting for the 2019 start to A Book and a Bite, a summer literacy program for kids of all ages. On Friday, June 7th with the help of Windemere Realty we were able to kick off our summer season of fun, free books and so many free activities. We would like to thank the staff of Windemere Realty for taking the time to come out and help us promote our program. 

Our normal program began Tuesday, June 11th at Luby Park. We anticipated a larger crowd than our kickoff event, the weather was going to be much nicer. We of course exceeded our expected number with so many happy faces and eager learners. Sacajawea Elementary would not be able to make this happen without the support from RISE- Treasure Valley Education Partnership. This is the second year that RISE helps support A Book and A Bite at Sacajawea. 

Sacajawea’s A Book and A Bite on Tuesday was made a success by the great work of Delta Dental of Idaho, Caldwell Public Library, University of Idaho 4-H Extension, Idaho Public Television, Oasis Food Center, Sacajawea staff, the amazing community volunteers and the City of Caldwell Parks,for letting us use their location this summer. 

Please join us Tuesday, June 18th for our second week of A Book and A Bite, starting at 11:30 a.m at Luby Park!
A Book and A Bite 2019- ¡Comenzó en Caldwell!

La Primaria Sacajawea estaba esperando ansiosamente el inicio de A Book and a Bite 2019, un programa de aprendizaje de verano para niños de todas las edades. El viernes 7 de junio, con la ayuda de Windemere Realty, pudimos comenzar nuestra temporada de verano de diversión, libros gratis y tantas actividades gratuitas. Nos gustaría agradecer al personal de Windemere Realty por tomarse el tiempo para ayudarnos a promover nuestro programa. 

Nuestro programa normal comenzó el martes 11 de junio en Luby Park. Anticipábamos una multitud más grande que nuestro evento de lanzamiento, el clima iba a ser mucho mejor. Por supuesto, superamos nuestro número esperado con tantas caras felices y estudiantes ansiosos. La Primaria Sacajawea no podría hacer que esto sucediera sin el apoyo de RISE-Treasure Valley Education Partnership. Este es el segundo año que RISE ayuda a apoyar A Book and A Bite en Sacajawea. 

A Book and A Bite de Sacajawea el martes fue un éxito gracias al excelente trabajo de Delta Dental of Idaho, Caldwell Public Library, University of Idaho 4-H Extension, Idaho Public Television, Oasis Food Center, el personal de Sacajawea, los incredible voluntarios y Los Parques de la Ciudad de Caldwell, por permitirnos usar su ubicación este verano. 

¡Únase a nosotros el martes 18 de junio para nuestra segunda semana de A Book and A Bite, que comienza a las 11:30 am en Luby Park!
