Sargeant Families Blog September 23rd-27th




The district maintenance crew has been hard at work this week renovating
our ball walls.  They look great!




Chick Fil A Night 
Thank you for coming out to support Sargeant at the CHick Fil A night.  We raised just over $400 to support our musical for this year.  It was a fun night, and we can't wait for the next one in January!

Site Council
We are looking for one more representative for the Site Council Committee.  The Site Council meets 4-5 times throughout the year to look over the school's site plan, academic data, parent survey and safety plan.  We meet on Wednesdays at 3:30.  Please e-mail Principal Peck at rpeck@rcsdk8.org if you are interested.

Academic Vocab
Academic vocabulary is the vocabulary that helps students navigate complex text in all content areas.  They are the words that are in questions and directions that can sometimes mix kids up and make it difficult for them to understand. Starting this week we will be teaching all 3rd-5th graders one academic word a week.  They will be talking about it in class and trying to use it on their own.  We will share the word for the upcoming week in this blog as well. Next week's word: Analyze.

Sargeant Families Blog - September 9th-13th

This week Mrs. Rainey and Mrs. Vandivier kicked off the new
Kindness Club!


Entering Campus Before School 
Kids are allowed on campus at 8:35 in the morning.  They can enter through the back gate by the park or the front gate by the multi purpose room.  We try to keep all the other gates closed before school as we don't want kinds entering the center of campus as there is no supervision there in the morning. 1st-5th graders are allowed to play on the playground until 8:45 when the warning bell rings to head to class.

Sargeant Families Blog - September 2nd-6th

IB Corner

The IB Attribute of the month of September is Principled.
Students who are PRINCIPLED have a sense of fairness and are honest with
themselves and with others.  They understand that sometimes there are rules and they follow them.  


How can families help at home?

  • Teach and model for your child what it looks like to be a respectful winner or loser in a game.   
  • Acknowledge your child when they tell the truth even though they know it will get them in trouble.

Kicking off our first recognition assembly of the year. 

A big thank you to Rotary Club of Roseville for their support!  We received a grant to help fund our
books for the Birthday Book Cart.  Please make sure your child stops by the office
on their birthday to pick out a book.

Sargeant Families Blog - August 19th-23rd

We love reading at Sargeant! Lots of reading going on throughout the school this week. We encourage you to read nightly with your child. They can read to you, you can read to them, or you both can read independently (so they can see you reading too!).




Pick Up After School
The past couple of days have been a little hectic on North Cirby after school. Here are a few reminders:
- Please keep the bus loading area clear. We have two buses that come in after school to pick kids up.
- If you are along the curb by the cones that say "No Stopping" then once the pick up loop starts moving after school, you are expected to move with it. This is not an area to park and wait for your child. This is a No Parking area. We understand that cars will be parked until 3:15, but once the lines starts moving, everyone should be moving.


This the the area where people are getting into the pick up loop. 

- If you come to pick up and the line is not moving, please do not double park. There were two lines of double parked cars waiting for the bell to ring and this prevents any traffic from going by safely. If you arrive to school and cars are already there, please park further down the street until it is safe to move forward.

After School Enrichment
Star Nova After School Enrichment - Wednesdays after school




Young Rembrandts (Art Class) - Mondays After School
At Young Rembrandts we teach children to draw- the fundamental skill of all visual arts. We are the only Art Enrichment program that teaches art, using a methodology specifically designed to improve student perception, visualization and organizational skills. As a result, students show dramatic improvement in their drawing abilities, expand their art vocabulary and art history knowledge, demonstrate patience, discipline and focus, and improve their attention to detail and sequencing skills. COME DRAW WITH US! (Click the link in the title for more information.)



Musical
It's that time of the year for our musical auditions. Applications are now available for 3rd-5th graders and due no later than Friday, August 30th by 12:30. Below is the front page of the application. If your child is interested, make sure they talk to their teacher about an application.
