Hi Skyhawk families!
Well, well, well. January sure was an unexpected combination of snow and ice and togetherness at home! Here’s hoping that the winter weather craziness and challenges are all behind us!
Weather permitting, there are some really fun events ahead at Sacajawea in the next few months! We hope they’ll be lots of fun for your families! You can find details here and on our website.
-Jennifer Wynn, for the Sacajawea PTA
