Ronald McDonald Visits Sage Creek

Ronald McDonald visited the students of Sage Creek Elementary on Friday to remind them that part of being a friend is to stop bullying. Ronald sang songs and interacted with the kids to help them connect with important friendship concepts. He gave them tips on what to do when they see a bully and how to help one another stop bullying from happening. Ronald created a poster with the reminders to Be A Friend, Cooperate, Get Out and Play and DON'T BULLY! Many students commented that this was the most fun assembly they have ever been to. Thanks Ronald!!!

Yehaw! As part of the Utah State third grade core curriculum in social studies, and under the direction of teachers, Mrs. Foote, Mrs. Reber, Mr. Curtis, Mrs. Egbert and Miss Le, the Sage Creek third grade put on their pioneer costumes and held school as a "prairie day". Students went back in time and recited their multiplication tables by rote, did their math on slates with chalk,and had a hoedown. They also "went to town" and had picked up their lunches to eat in the prairie classroom. They got a drink at the "creek" and used the "outhouse" when necessary.
