Second Grade to the Pumpkin Patch

On Wednesday, October 26th, the Second Grade students from Sage Creek Elementary visited Mrs. Huffaker's Pumpkin Patch.  She has been growing most of the pumpkins for 6 months!  Students brought their pumpkins back to the school and will decorate them during our Harvest Celebration on Halloween Day. After the celebration students will use their pumpkins and their seeds to help them learn core topics such as: compare/contrast, patterns, life cycles, and place value . . . How many seeds are in YOUR pumpkin?

Sage Creek - Fourth Grade Harvest

Fourth graders in Mrs. Robbins'  class had an up close and personal harvest this fall!  They reaped over 100 radishes that they had planted at the beginning of the school year with the first graders.  These same students have also harvested lettuce and are crossing their fingers that it doesn't freeze so they are able to harvest the peas that they planted.  They enjoyed eating the lettuce, and also shared their radishes with their first grade reading buddies.  Their conclusion was-  "It tastes better if you grow it yourself!"

Halloween Play

Sage Creek Elementary's media specialist, Marsha Rasmussen, is goblin deep in having students perform their first play of the year in the Sage Creek Library! The Halloween play is "We're Off To Find The Witch's House" by Mr. Krieb. This cute picture is of part of Ms. Sayers second grade class.

Red Ribbon Week at Sage Creek

“Be a Sport! Play Hard and Live Clean” was the motto of Sage Creek Elementary School’s Red Ribbon Week.  In an opening assembly exceptional students from Springville High School talked to the students about how important staying drug free is to be able to do the things they love in life.  During the week the students made up jump-rope rhymes about staying clean and being healthy and shared these with other classes at recess.

Second Grade participated in Red Ribbon Week at Sage Creek Elementary!!  We kicked off the week with visiting athletes/musicians/good student examples from the high school ... Then we created our own jump rope rhymes and shared them during recess ... Next we really got active with a grade-level skipping race ... Finally, at the end of the week our whole school released balloons with our goals to be active and live clean attached to them!  Be a Sport!  Play Hard!  Live Clean!  Go for it, Sage Creek Dragons!!
