ABC - Academic Booster Club:
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!
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!

Sargent Cafeteria News and Menu
We (your Cafeteria Crew) would like to let you in on some exciting news! The USDA has extended its flexibilities to allow our district to have free meals for ALL students through the end of the 21-22 school year! That means your child/ren get to eat breakfast and lunch all year at no cost to you. However, ala-carte items and second lunches will still be charged. Whatever charges your child/ren have accrued (FOR THIS YEAR ONLY) will be put back into your lunch account. If you have paid a bill already for this year, you will also be credited for that payment. The process of refunding your lunch accounts will take some time so please be patient with us. If you have lunch balances from previous years, please continue to make your payments on those. If you have any questions contact Val Bonsall at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 852-8863, Monday - Thursday from 6am - 2pm.
Driver's Education Classes
Subject: Summer is the Perfect Time for Your Teen to do Drivers Ed!
Your choice of driver’s education is an important milestone in your student’s life. Summer break is an excellent time for students 14 ½ and older to start taking classes for a Colorado permit. When you choose the online program, hosted through Sargent High School, you can help your student become a safe driver for life and support your school at the same time!
To help you with the process required of Colorado teens, here is a review of the requirements. You can go to dmv.colorado.gov to find out this information and more.
· Teens under the age of 15 ½ can begin their driver’s education at 14 ½. They are required to get 30 hours of coursework (in class or online), pass the permit written exam, obtain the permit at age 15 or over. They must hold the permit for one year from date of issue to be eligible to take the driver’s license behind the wheel test. During that year they are required to get 6 hours of professional behind the wheel driving lessons and log 50 hours (10 at night) with parent or guardian.
· Teens age 15 ½ to 16 are required to complete the Driver Awareness Course, pass the permit test, hold the permit for one year from date of issue and during the year log 50 hours (10 of them at night) with parent or guardian. This is a four-hour course that prepares the student for the permit test.
· Teens 16 to 18 years of age are required to take and pass the written permit test, get the permit issued and hold it one year or turn 18, whichever comes first. During the year they hold the permit, they must log 50 hours of driving practice (10 at night) with parent or guardian.
Why go through us?
- Our online program increases the confidence and knowledge of your student in a variety of driving situations.
- The program is designed to be equivalent to an in-person classroom experience. Your student will learn all the content of the classroom from the convenience of your own home.
- Interactive games and videos make the learning experience fun and engaging.
- Your student can access the online program anytime, anywhere! It works on all devices. All you need is a working Internet connection.
- We provide an online technical support number answered seven days a week.
- Everything is self-paced. When life gets busy, your student can pick up the course at any time.
- After you enroll in our online program, we receive a donation to help fund school programs.

B: Bucks for our schools.

Lockdown, Evacuate, and Shelter.
