Mrs. Sousa's 5th graders joined Ms. Carhart's kindergartners for Christmas crafts and reading. Tons of fun.
Way to go, Skyhawks. We are proud of you.
One of the joys of the Christmas season for me is seeing our 5th grade orchestra play in the halls at Sacajawea. We are so proud of our kids. It makes it even more fun that it is such an unconventional venue, the convergence of 3 halls in front of the office, with the audience packed in on the floor. Thanks Mrs. Rosandick and our orchestra students.

Every time a student completes 5 miles they get a little foot charm to put on a chain around their neck. Some students have collected dozens of those feet. Just during the month of October, we had seven 4th graders complete more than 40 miles. We had some 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders close behind with more than 25 miles each during the month.
Mayor Nancolas and Connor Sheldon from the Blue Cross Foundation of Idaho presented the school with a check for $500 to be used for PE equipment. Fittingly enough, the ceremony was held on a chilly December morning outdoors on our “Skyhawk Trail.” Our kids don’t just run in October. They run all year long. Some of our staff and parents get out there and put in a few laps too. Some of our most consistent runners accepted the check on behalf of the school.
So, while many may decry the national epidemic of childhood obesity, the Sacajawea Skyhawks have found that walking or running a couple laps is a great way to start our day. We don’t do a whole lot of sitting around.
Here are some highlights from October, with a variety of grades represented.
- Diana M. - 4th Simpson - 81 Miles
- Erick M. - 4th Stocks - 58 miles
- Luke M. - 4th Stocks- 53 miles

Our 3rd graders recently finished their "Make a Splash" swimming program at The Y in Caldwell. What a great opportunity to learn a life skill, swimming. Every 3rd grader in Caldwell gets the opportunity to have a full session of swimming lessons. This year we went to lessons two days a week in September and October. Thanks to our 3rd grade teachers, to the Caldwell Family YMCA staff and swim teachers, and to the generous funders of this fantastic program.
These pictures were taken on the final celebration day, after all of our lessons were done.
These boys in Ms. Rehman's 4th grade group each wrote a piece about a project they could do in their neighborhood. They wrote about different ways they could help other people. They chose to do Jesus' project and clean up around the park on Galveston St in Caldwell last Tuesday. Ms. Rehman met the boys and some of their family members down at the park after school and they worked to make our town a better place for kids. Pictured above are Jonathan, Jesus, Jonatan, and German. Thanks 4th grade boys.
Here are the winners of our National School Lunch coloring contest. Congratulations Sacajawea artists. Their work is proudly displayed in our cafeteria.

The Treasure Valley Mayor's have issued a challenge to see which school can run and walk the most in October (Link to Mayor's Challenge). I'm pretty sure we are one of the most active schools almost every month. With this challenge, which started yesterday, our Skyhawk Trail is full of runners and walkers. Parents are walking too. Come on out. Our school did 110 miles just on October 1st. Even the kindergartners were out there doing laps. So much fun. I'm proud of our kids (and our teachers and parents too).
The Problem: We have soooo many kids running that we have long lines to get their card punched each lap. If you'd love to just encourage kids to run or walk and punch a hole in their lap card, come sign up at the office. Mr. Thomas can get a puncher for you and can point you in the right direction. Please help if you can from 8:20 to 8:53 or any time from 12:05 until 1:15.
|Kids waiting in line to get their card punched after each lap.|
This morning Mr. Thomas set to tone with a great music mix as kids came around each lap. Several parents and teachers joined the fun.
If you want to come help or come walk or run with us please do. Just sign in at the office and get a visitor badge first.
