Crosswalk safety - please completely stop at the crosswalk and look for kids entering it to cross.  

Yearbooks
It is not too late to order a yearbook for your bulldog. We have over two dozen remaining to sell. Yearbooks will be distributed the last week of school. If you have not paid (and are on our waitlist) your yearbook will be in the school office for payment (check payable to Sargeant PTC or exact cash $20) and pickup. Thank you!

Book Bags
RJUSD has graciously donated boxes full of elementary level books for our students.  Sargeant would like to support our students in reading over summer break and the Sargeant Wellness team will be creating summer book bags for students who want them. The students are welcome to keep these books and add them to their library after summer, or donate them back to the school when we return to school in August. If your student/s are interested in a book bag for summer please complete this form (linked) by 5/25 so a bag can be made for them and sent home during the last week of school.
