Welcome to the 2022/2023 school year! We've had a great start, it was so nice to see so many smiling children this week!
School Lunch: This year the school lunch program is based on eligibility and is no longer free for all students. You may qualify for FREE or REDUCED ($ 0.40) lunches by going to the website https://www.schoolcafe.com/ to apply. You can also set up an account for your student to add money to their account or set a low balance alert. You will need your student's ID number to set up the account and you can get that by calling the school at 907-796-5075. Some of the older students may know their lunch numbers.
Substitutes: We need substitutes for when staff are unable to be at work, if you or anyone you know is available to substitute, even if it's once a month or once a week, please apply!
Come work at SGCS! We have several openings for Paraeducators, come join our fabulous team of educators!
Pick Up at End of Day: Quick reminder about end of day pick up. For those of you picking up your child, you can park in the side lot or upper lot on I Street and walk in. If you aren't getting out of your vehicle, you can pull over on Douglas Hwy. Please DO NOT use the North End parking lot as that creates a safety hazard for students. See map below. If you pick up on I Street, please be aware of our neighbors and do not block their driveways. Please call with any after school instructions or messages for students before 2:00 pm to ensure we can deliver them before the end of the school day.
Label Gear: Reminder to label coats, boots, lunchboxes, etc. so they don't end up in the Lost & Found.
Here's to a wonderful school year!
Sayéik Gastineau has the distinct honor of having TWO teachers who completed the Ironman here in Juneau on August 7th.
Ms. Brennell (2nd grade) and Ms. Dorn (Title 1) swam 1.2 miles in Auke Lake, biked 112 miles, and ran 26.2 miles. They both finished in under 12 hours and 3rd in their respective age groups, qualifying for the Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii in October.
Congratulations to these incredible athletes!
