Mayor's Run/Walk Challenge

Skyhawks were last year's winners!

The Mayor's Run/Walk Challenge begins October 1st and goes to the end of October. The goal of the challenge is to encourage students to move more and to create healthy habits. The elementary schools in the district will be competing to track the most miles ran or walked by students. The school with the most miles will win $2000 to be used to purchase playground and lunchroom equipment.

Mr. Thomas will be out at the Skyhawk Trail before school and at lunch recess punching tickets. Parents are welcome to come out and help punch tickets and to cheer the students on.

First Grade's Fairy Tale Slime

First grade combined a science lesson with their fairy tale unit for an exceptional learning activity. Students combined equal amounts of glue and liquid starch to make a slime. Then glitter and jewels were added to give that fairy tale sparkle. Students ended up with FAIRY TALE SLIME.

4th Grade Science is Electrifying

Miss Lovell went and did it again! Knocking kids socks off and getting all of our 4th graders to jump into science with both feet! Most recently, 4th grade has been working on understanding circuits, conductors and insulators. This fun, hands-on lab allowed students to experiment with how electric currents work (and don't work) simply by using conductive clay, insulating clay, batteries and LED lights.

Learning, Food, and Fun At Math Night

Despite the crazy weather on Thursday it was a full house at Sacajawea for Math Night. Families gathered in classrooms to learn skills and activities to help them understand math better and for them to see that math can be fun. They also had a chance to visit the library and play some simple math games with cards and dice. Wrapping up the evening families gathered in the cafeteria for a pizza dinner served by Caldwell High School Senior Volunteers.
Thank you to all the teachers and staff for helping to make this night a great experience for families. Most of all thank you to all the parents and family members who came out to support the students in their learning.

Indian Creek Festival - Sept 12

On the weekend of Sept 12th, the City of Caldwell will host the Indian Creek Festival.  Most of these events are centered around the hub of downtown near Indian Creek, not too far from where most Sacajawea families live. This is a great family event and this is one example of why Caldwell is such a great place for kids and families.

One of my favorite events every year is the cardboard and duct tape boat race.  There are also car shows, crafts, music, and lots of food and fun for kids and families.  This year I'll be racing in the 5K run.  Maybe some other Skyhawks will join me. I'm trying to run a 5k in Canyon County every month this year and I'm hoping to improve my time each time. 

Here is a link to details of the events. I'd encourage Sacajawea families to get involved with this great community event.  It makes Caldwell a better place.  I know you will have fun.
