WELCOME TO SACAJAWEA!

Sacajawea Middle School is a grade six through eight middle school in Bozeman, Montana, that has been educating students since 1996. We seek to develop the best possible educational setting for our students while recognizing the unique needs of early adolescence. Our goal is to provide appropriate academic challenge for all students, the support necessary for individual success, and an on-going zest for learning. We know students learn best in an environment that is accepting, respectful and nurturing; thus, we build our school community on positive relationships among all members.

We are currently in the process of expanding and renovating our current school facilities and are excited about how the changes will allow us to better serve our students.  The renovation will continue through 2016 and the summer of 2017 and will result in significant additions and improvements within the building.

This site is intended to provide the important information and communication links you seek for the success of your child. We value and appreciate your involvement and input. Please contact us with further questions or suggestions you may have.

Thank you for working with us to create the Sacajawea community.

Summer Activities
Check out these summer activities available for middle school kids! 

Renovation Update--Summer 2017
Significant work is occurring throughout the building this summer.  As soon as school dismissed, classrooms were packed and demolition of the library, office, tech classrooms and music areas began.  In the coming months, the new office, library, cafeteria expansion and music rooms will be created.  The enlarged health enhancement areas featuring an additional half-gym, flex space, fitness area, and classrooms are also progressing.  The new electives wing is nearing completion and looks amazing!  A lot still to happen, but we are looking forward to completion in mid-August for the coming school year.

The Thriving Sixth Graders Workshop will also take place at 10:30 on the 22nd.  Our Parent Liaisons, Ashley Mares-Jones and Libby Hansen, will provide valuable insight into how to support your sixth graders as they navigate their first year in middle school.  Time will be available for questions and discussion.  All first-time parents of sixth graders are encouraged to attend.


Canine Detection Guidelines
Periodic, non-intrusive searches of student lockers, health enhancement lockers, and parking areas may be made by trained canines.  A school official will accompany all searches.  Searches will be conducted systematically to reduce the risk associated with inappropriate substances on school grounds.  Canine Detection.docx

Youth Risk Behavior Survey
Every two years, eighth grade students across the state participate in the Youth Risk Behavior Survey which collects information on their decisions and lifestyle choices.  A composite of the data for our district's students is contained in this link.  Families are encouraged to review the information and discuss the data with their students.  Feel free to contact Mr. Grissom with any questions you may have.

Attendance Matters!

A friendly reminder as we prepare for the coming school year to please keep track of your student's attendance! Days missed add up quickly and can affect your student's performance. According to Bozeman School District Policy (3122P) a student who misses 10 or more days of school, including excused and unexcused absences, is considered excessively absent. If your student has missed 10 or more days, you may be contacted by our Attendance Liaison. She may be reached at 522-6400.

*If your student sees a doctor, be sure to bring in a doctor’s note.  If a doctor’s note is presented, the duration of the appointment does not count toward accumulated absences.
*Please try to schedule appointments outside of school hours.
*Please try to schedule family vacations when school is not in session.
