Sauganash 5th-7th graders attended the movie Hidden Figures on February 23rd. As part of their learning experience they constructed “Hidden Figures” timelines from 1950-1970 to highlight the historical events of NASA as wells as the Civil Rights Era. Students also included the contributions of Dorothy Vaughan, Katherine Johnson, and Mary Jackson after seeing the movie and recognizing that their accomplishments were not acknowledged.

A Message from our Benefit Co-Chairs, Sarah Datz and Malin Vasavanont Dear Sauganash School Families,For many years, the PTA held a formal benefit to support our school. Parents and staff celebrated with dinner, dancing and a theme to tie the night together. This year, we are bringing the benefit back! Why, you may be wondering? It’s an excellent opportunity to connect with old friends, make new ones, and foster a sense of community while raising some money to support our children’s education. And finally, many of you have been asking for one! Read the rest of the letter here in English, Arabic, or Spanish
