Fuel Up to Play 60
Dear Sacajawea Elementary School Parents/Guardians:
The National Dairy Council® (NDC) and the National Football League (NFL) — in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) — are making a long-term commitment to America’s youth with a school-based nutrition and fitness initiative called Fuel Up to Play 60. The initiative gets students involved in creating a healthier school environment that promotes student health, learning and achievement. Through Fuel Up to Play 60, students will pledge to choose more nutritious foods (including low-fat and fat-free dairy foods, fruits, vegetables and whole grains), get 60 minutes of physical activity every day, and encourage their friends, family and their entire school to join them — and have fun too!

Sacajawea Elementary School 4th & 5th Grade Math Club
Beginning Friday, January 8th, 2016, we invite your son or daughter to join us for an hour of fun math activities and competitions. This is not a tutoring service, but rather a chance to have fun exploring mathematics with peers, learn problem- solving skills, and participate in some competition mathematics, with an emphasis on having fun. Your child need not be a “math wiz” in order to participate; all we ask is that he or she come ready to participate enthusiastically. In addition to competition math topics, we’ll explore others such as the mathematics of drawing in perspective, and modular origami.
