WANTED: Lighthouse Leader in Me Parent Teams

Dear Sargent Farmer Parents,

As we begin to think about what the future holds for Sargent pertaining to our academics, our culture and our leadership, I want to extend an invitation to you to become our "Parent Portion" of our Leader in Me Lighthouse Leadership teams.

My thought is to have a group of parents to come alongside our student and teacher Lighthouse teams to help create goals and make decisions in our three areas:

1. Leadership

2. Academics

3. Culture

If you are interested in one or more of these areas and would like to join one of the teams that are moving Sargent forward, please email me at sdavid@sargent.k12.co.us

In the email subject line type, "Leader In Me - Parent".

Thank you!

We look forward to working with you!

Our first meeting will be on Wednesday, September 16th at 5:30pm in the high school library.

ABC - Sargent Secondary's Academic Booster Club - NEEDS YOU!

To Parents/Guardians and Staff of Sargent Secondary Students:

The Sargent Academic Booster Club is an organization that works to encourage, support and recognize the academic achievements, successes, and competitions of the Sargent secondary students as well as providing recognition and support of their amazing teachers.

We recognize students who achieve the Honor Roll each semester, we sponsor the Student of the Month program, organize send-offs for students who earn their way to state competitions in Science Fair, History Day, FBLA, FFA and Knowledge Bowl. We also host the Teacher Appreciation Lunch in May, provide meals for the teachers during Parent/Teacher Conferences throughout the year, and give teachers and staff appreciation gifts at various times throughout the year. We also will support funding any academic items, if requested and funds are available.

As you can tell, we do our best to give our hard-working students and staff the recognition and support they deserve. However, this isn’t done with the wave of a magic wand or the saying of some magical phrase. It’s accomplished with monetary support, dedication, organization, and help from parents and staff.

The Academic Booster Club meets quarterly or more often, if needed. We generally keep our meetings to an hour or less. We need parents who are willing to serve on the committee to assist in making decisions, planning, helping out when needed and/or monetary support. We would like as many parents, teachers, and staff to participate to hopefully have 7th-12th grades represented. Please consider becoming an active part of the Academic Booster Club (ABC). You can help make a positive impact on Sargent JH/HS and our students and staff!

Our first meeting of this school year will be Tuesday, September 8th at 6:00 p.m. at Rio Grande Savings & Loan in Monte Vista (access back door on north side of the building by the drive-up). Please consider joining us!

If you have any questions, please contact Traci Holmes at 580-0273, Amy Holland at 588-3261, or Tonya Wenta at 850-1960. Thank you for your continued support!
