We Day 2014!
On March 21, 2014 We Day Seattle will bring together 15,000 young people to celebrate the power of youth to create positive change in their local and global communities. You can’t buy a ticket to We Day – you earn it through service. We Act is a comprehensive service learning program that supports schools and youth groups in taking tangible action to make a difference in the world. Groups take on one local and one global action and report back to Free The Children to earn their way to We Day. In turn, schools and groups get tools and resources to make their We Act commitments come to life. More than an event, We Day celebrates a movement of young people leading change through We Act.
Sacajawea is very excited to be registered to participate in the WE ACT Program that leads up to a team of students attending WE Day on March 21st at Key Arena in Seattle. For more information, please visit their website. Ready to take action and get involved? Download the We Day Essay Prompt and We Day Participation Record Sheet. Have questions? Talk to Mr. Haines!
There are several ways students, staff and parents can get information about emergency school delays and closures.
Parents who have chosen to receive text, e-mail or automated phone calls from the district will be contacted using those methods.
Closure information is also posted on the main district website: www.fwps.org and the district Facebook page and Twitter feed (@FWPS210). The news will also go out through the Sacajawea Facebook page, and here on the Sac website, but it may not be as timely.
FlashAlert.net is another option. FlashAlert replaces the previous SchoolReport.org system and is the source for news media closure lists. Individuals can sign up for text and/or email alerts on their website. FlashAlert also has free Android and iOS apps available if you wish to receive push notifications straight to your smart phone.
And, as always, local television and radio stations will broadcast school closures.
Sacajawea Homework Club
The Sacajawea Homework Club is up and running! Homework club is for students who have specific assignments to work on – you must have work to do and/or a book to read silently the entire hour. If you need a computer to complete an assignment and you know your network log-in, computers are available. Ms. Kahoonei and our AmeriCorps volunteers are available to assist students who have questions or need help.
Homework Club meets every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 2:45 to 3:45 pm. Students are expected to stay the entire time. Activity bus passes are available.
Have a question about Homework Club? Please contact our Communities in Schools liaison, Ms. Kahoonei by email or phone: 253-945-4921.
ELO/Activity Bus Information
The ELO/Activity Buses run Monday through Thursday each week. These buses are for students who are staying after school for supervised Extended Learning Opportunities, clubs, homework help, etc. They are not intended for athletes as they depart before sports practices end. Students must have a signed pink bus pass from their supervising staff member in order to board the bus. ELO/Activity buses do not run on Fridays.
There are two buses – one that runs south of Sacajawea and one that runs north. Students will be dropped close to, but not necessarily directly at their regular stop. Questions? Please call the office (253) 945-4900.

Thanks to Mrs. Mateus and Ms. Trivitt for getting these shirts ready for us – they look great!
