Students will receive a copy of the registration form during our visit. We are asking that students take the form home and discuss their selections with parents. We will return the next day to pick up the form.

In June we will invite our future Thunderbirds to come to Sacajawea for an official school visit. We will work with our elementary school partners on the arrangements for this event.

About our Community Partner's Program..... We would appreciate you partnering with us in supporting the PBIS program at Sacajawea.

There are 2 ways to participate and help the Sacajawea community.

We ask that businesses pick one month of the school year to sponsor our PBIS program, with a suggested donation of $75.  When your business sponsors a month of PBIS, it will be recognized in Sacajawea “News You Can Use” email with a link to your businesses’ website. This email gives your business exposure to the families of the 800+ students enrolled at Sacajawea. We will also advertise your business for the entire month on our brand new Sacajawea Middle School electronic reader board, located on Grand Blvd. at 32nd Ave.
