Springville Jr. High Choir Performs

The holiday spirit came to Sage Creek Elementary in the form of Springville Junior High Students who shared their musical and dancing talents in an assembly for all Sage Creek Students. Under the direction of teacher, Leslie Walker, these Jr. High School students sang a variety of holiday tunes and performed a special dance number for the elementary students. Sage Creek students were captivated by the poise and professionalism of their Jr. High counterparts, and were delighted with the festive spirit they brought into the school. Thank you Junior High Choir!

Mrs. Sleight is chosen for the Crystal Apple Award

This week Mrs. LoriAnn Sleight was chosen by her colleagues to receive the Nebo School District Association Crystal Apple Award at Sage Creek Elementary School for outstanding performance as a teacher. Mrs. Sleight has been a teacher at Sage Creek for over twenty years. She spent the first nineteen years in second grade before moving to fifth grade two years ago. However, anyone that has ever watched her interact with fifth graders would guess that she had worked with them her entire career.
