Ms. Howard Receives Award


A huge SHOUT-OUT to our very own Kristin Howard, our art and music teacher at Sage Creek.  Ms. Howard won the Nebo School District PEAK Performer Award for her Positive Energy and Kindness (PEAK).  The school recognizes individuals throughout the district who consistently go above and beyond to make their setting in Nebo District a better place.  Ms. Howard attended the school board meeting on Oct 12 where she received the award.  Way to go Ms. Howard!! 


Pen Pals from Taiwan

Students in our Chinese classes are writing to Pen Pals in Taiwan.   Working with Amanda Conklin, director of the Su Ma Ma Club, the students compose letters and information about themselves in Chinese, to elementary students in Taiwan.  They love sending the letters and are even more excited to receive letters in return!  The exchange happens several times each year.

Opera Visits Sage Creek!



Vocal Dimensions through Utah State Arts, Inc, visited Sage Creek School on Oct 11.  The students were delighted to participate in the opera performed as students were pulled from the audience to participate in several scenes of the opera, as well as the entire audience participating throughout.  The purpose of the assembly is to expose students to the opera and teach them the basics of that particular type of art form.  The performers and student volunteers put on the opera of The Three Pigs.
