Veteran’s Day Assembly

On Friday, November 9th, Sacajawea Elementary held its Veterans Day Assembly.  Students sang songs, did a skit about the history of the wars, and honored veterans from our Sacajawea students and staff.  Many of the veterans were in the audience and they stood as their service was described and the students, staff, and attendees applauded them.  They also received a certificate honoring their service.  Mrs. Evans prepared a slideshow of veterans from our students and staff that could not be in attendance.  Thank you to Mrs. Evans for all of the work she put into making this assembly memorable.  Thank you also to the people that attended the assembly and the students for participating in it.  Finally, a big thank you goes to all veterans for keeping America safe.

Pumpkins Turn Into Book Characters!

Sacajawea's librarian, Brittany Anderson, held a contest for families to decorate a pumpkin as a book character.  It was wonderful seeing all of the creativity of our families.  We had everything from Pete the Cat to Diary of a Wimpy Kid come to life as pumpkins.

Students were so excited to look at all of the pumpkins when they came to the library.

The first place winner was Emma B, second place was Aven S, and the third place winner was Josephin C.  They all won money for books. Emma decided to use her money to buy books for teachers. What thoughtful generosity!

Thank you to all of the families that participated and to Mrs. Anderson for overseeing this fun event.
¡ La calabaza se convierte en personajes del libro!

La bibliotecaria de Sacajawea, Brittany Anderson, celebró un concurso para que las familias decoraran una calabaza como un personaje del libro. Fue maravilloso ver toda la creatividad de nuestras familias. Teníamos de todo, desde Pete the Cat al Diary of a Wimpy Kid que viene a la vida como calabazas.

Los estudiantes estaban tan emocionados de ver todas las calabazas cuando llegaron a la biblioteca.

El primer lugar ganador fue Emma B, el segundo lugar fue Aven S, y el ganador del tercer lugar fue Josephine C. Todos ganaron dinero para libros. Emma decidió usar su dinero para comprar libros para los maestros. ¡ Qué generosidad tan reflexiva!

Gracias a todas las familias que participaron y a la Sra. Anderson por supervisar este divertido evento.

What's Inside?

Our Extended Kindergarten kids did a little scientific investigation to find out "What's Inside?"
Ms. Lashbrook and her kids are nurturing curiosity, building literacy skills, and expressing themselves with arts and crafts and in writing.
That's learning!

Thanks, IWCF (Idaho Women's Charitable Foundation), for making our extended kindergarten program possible through a generous grant, in partnership with United Way of Treasure Valley.
