Sunrise at Sacajawea

Two reasons we love mornings at Sacajawea:
  1. Mr. Thomas and the Skyhawk Trail
  2. A great view of the sunrise
Thanks to Mrs. Rehman for this pic of Mr. Thomas out running with the kids yesterday morning.  He said, "It was just so beautiful that I had to get out and run with them."  Isn't it great to have a little sun back to break up the fog?

Family Math Night - Thanks for Supporting Your Kids

On Jan. 15th, both students and parents had a fun time at the Sacajawea Family Math Night. Each grade level did a presentation on a concept that the students are learning in class. Then there was a fun math activity for the parents and their children.

The families also got a take-home math activity. Some of the parents said, “I didn’t understand this math before, but now I do!” There were three different sessions so parents could get to all of their children’s classes. After attending a session, the families also enjoyed pizza and salad. It was a great evening for all!

Thanks for supporting your kids in their mathematical success.

**Thanks to the many volunteers from the community and from Caldwell High School who helped us make this event possible.


El 15 de enero, los estudiantes y los padres tenían un tiempo divertido en la Noche Familiar de Matemáticas de Sacajawea. Cada equipo del grado hizo una presentación sobre un concepto que los estudiantes están aprendiendo en clase. Luego hicimos una actividad de matemáticas para los padres y sus hijos.

Las familias también recibieron una actividad de matemáticas para llevar a casa. Algunos de los padres dijo: "Yo no entiendo esto de matemáticas antes, pero ahora lo hago!" Había tres sesiones diferentes para que los padres pudieran llegar a todas las clases de sus hijos. Después de asistir a una sesión, las familias también disfrutaron de pizza y ensalada. Fue una gran noche para todos!

Gracias por apoyar a sus hijos en su éxito matemático.
