Sacajawea Middle School!
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.

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.
HE Clothing Available On-Line
Families may order HE shirts at the following website:
Interior walls and rough-ins (electrical, plumbing, HVAC) are being put in the new classrooms in the 7th grade wing. The bricks are going up on the exterior of the 6th grade wing and the joists and decking are being added to the new 8th grade classrooms. The walls are beginning to take shape on the elective wings (sadly, greatly diminishing the incredible westward view), and the footings are being backfilled for the gym/music extension. A lot happening!
A friendly reminder that as we wrap up another busy school year, 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.
