Utah Symphony

Sage Creek's fourth graders, along with others from Nebo School District, were privileged to attend a performance by the Utah Symphony on Tuesday September 14th at Maple Mountain High School. Before the concert, students enjoyed learning about the instruments that play in a symphony. They also studied the musical pieces that were presented, and learned about the lives of the composers of each musical piece. The theme this year was Magic in Music and it was an incredible experience. The students dressed in their best clothes and were great listeners.

Fourth Grade Forest Field Trip

The forest environment was appreciated and enjoyed by the 4th graders from Sage Creek Elementary on Tuesday, September 21. With the help of Sarah Flinders and others from the National Forest Service, students were able to hike the Discovery trail, put on "waders" and catch invertebrates and fishes, go on a nature scavenger hunt, and learn how fires can help a forest. Diamond Fork Campground in the Wasatch Uinta National Forest was the setting for this fantastic day of learning which was directly related to the Utah State fourth grade science core curriculum.
