Hi Skyhawk families!
It’s December?! 2024 will be here before we know it!
2023 has been such a full year! Thank you for all of the support you’ve shown Sacajawea Elementary School and its staff, students, and families. And for all who have donated time, money, snacks, etc., we appreciate you so much!
We wish you a great remainder of 2023, happy holidays, and a happy start to 2024!
-Jennifer Wynn, for the Sacajawea PTA

Sacajawea’s Garden and Outdoor Learning Space
Have you seen it? The Garden and Outdoor Learning Space project is underway! The formal Groundbreaking took place on Monday, November 13th, and construction is in progress. The initial construction is part one in a series of steps. Additional steps will include filling out the space with seating and raised garden beds.
Scholastic December 2023 Book Fair
The Book Fair is almost here! Next week, December 4th through 8th, students will have access to the Book Fair at lunchtime. After-school shopping will be available on Tuesday and Thursday from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
To simplify your child’s experience, you can set up an eWallet here.
And a big, fun highlight of Book Fair week: Out-of-this-World STEM Night! Join the fun on Wednesday, December 6th from 4:30 p.m to 6:30 p.m. The Rose City Astronomers will bring some cool astronomy tools and artifacts for students to check out. We have some other special guests that will be SO much fun!
