National Dental Health Month

On Wednesday, February 23rd, the Provo District Dental Alliance (dentist's wives) ‘treated’ the 2nd grade students at Sage Creek to an amazing marionette show, in support of National Dental Health month.  The puppets taught the children the importance of taking good care of their teeth by brushing twice a day, flossing once each day, eating healthy foods, and visiting their dentist twice a year!

Second Grade Science Fair

At Sage Creek Elementary we had our very own Second Grade
Science Fair on Friday, February 11th. Each class focused
on a second grade core topic and conducted simple
experiments and observations. We placed our projects on
display in our individual classrooms and rotated through
each other's rooms to see what was discovered. Thanks for
your encouragement and excitement for science!!

Job Shadow Day at Sage Creek

On Wednesday, February 2nd, student Caden Brown from Mapleton Junior High School joined Mrs. Brown's second grade class at Sage Creek Elementary for their annual 7th Grade Job Shadow Day. Caden read some of his very own stories he had published back in second grade to the students. He also worked with them on multi-digit math problems and winter art projects. He was able to participate in their reading stratgey discussion during Readers' Workshop on 'questioning', in addition to enjoying a fun-filled inside recess, due to the freezing temperatures outside.
