Great Eclipse at Sacajawea - 2017

We loved having several Sacajwea families join us to watch the great solar eclipse of 2017. A once in a lifetime opportunity for most of us. What a beautiful day.  Memories!

Yotes Football Team Reads at Sacajawea

Thanks to the College of Idaho Yotes football team for coming to Sacajawea to read with our students yesterday.  Smiles all around.  Please come back to read again.  We also have all kinds of other ways to get involved, if you want to learn how to work with students, become a teacher, social worker, or just about anything else that makes a difference for kids.

Here is an album with one or more photos from most of our classes (Sorry, I had one or two classes I missed or got to too soon).

No School Monday - Eclipse ~ No Hay Clases en Lunes - Eclipse Solar

August 18, 2017

Dear Parents -

Due to the epic event of the Solar Eclipse, we will not have school on Monday, August 21st. We have received word that traffic will be more than challenging and many teachers may not be able to reach the schools to help with teaching.  We don’t know yet what the freeways will be like from the opposite ends of the Treasure Valley.

We have been so excited to work with our kids in learning about the eclipse and are disappointed to miss this chance.  We will talk about it on Tuesday.

We will be sending eclipse glasses home with each student.  Please make sure that no one in your family looks directly at the sun unless they are wearing the protective glasses.

We apologize for this inconvenience.  We have been looking forward to this day, but we are worried about the unpredictable factors and want to make sure our kids are in a safe place.

We have some extra eclipse glasses.  If you would like to get more to share with your family, please come by Sacajawea before 4:30 today and we will get some to you.  If you want to watch the eclipse with us on Monday, Mr. Webster (and maybe others) will be at school watching from 11:00 to at least 12:00.  Bring a lunch and your glasses.

Estimados Padres y Guardianes:,

Debido a el eclipse solar, no tendremos escuela lunes, 21 de agosto. Hemos recibido noticia que el tráfico será un reto para muchos de nuestros maestros que viajan de lejos para llegar a sus escuelas. No sabemos en qué condiciones estarán las autopistas, en ambas direcciones del valle del tesoro.

Hemos estado muy emocionados de trabajar con los estudiantes, sobre el eclipse solar y estamos muy decepcionados en perder la oportunidad. Hablaremos sobre el evento el martes cuando regresemos a clases.

Estaremos mandando lentes para el eclipse solar con cada estudiante. Por favor asegúrense que nadie en su familia vea directamente al sol tan solo que si tengan los lentes protectivos.

No disculpamos por la inconveniencia. Hemos estado esperando este dia, pero estamos preocupados de los factores impredecibles que puedan ocurrir, y queremos que nuestros estudiantes estén en un lugar seguro.

Tenemos lentes para el eclipse. Si gustan conseguir un para, para compartir con su familia, por favor vengan a Sacajawea antes de las 4:30, hoy y les daremos unos pares. Si gusta ver el eclipse el lunes, el Señor Webster (y otros) estarán viendo el eclipse en la escuela desde las 11:00 a.m. hasta las 12:00 p.m.. Por favor traigan un lonche y sus lentes para poder participar.

Press Tribune Covers Sacajawea's Community Schools Partnership With United Way

The Idaho Press Tribune has a story today highlighting the partnership we have developed with United Way of Treasure Valley to create a "Community Schools" initiative at Sacajawea.

We love to see our kids highlighted doing great things.  Special thanks to Ellie and Jesus, both students from Syringa Middle School's National Junior Honor Society, who volunteered all day during registration.  They had a good time entertaining our kids, while their parents completed registration and were able to meet with Hortensia Hernandez, our community resource coordinator.
