Teacher Spotlight as Sage Creek


Louise Crook is a 4th grade teacher at Sage Creek Elementary and has been teaching for 7 years.  She graduated from UVU and SUU.  Her favorite subject to teach is Math and Reading.  When asked about a memorable teaching moment she recalls her very first field trip as a teacher the bus ran into a light post and the bus was a total loss.  Louise loves to travel, go 4 wheeling and support and cheer her children on in sports and cheerleading.  Louise is a pleasure to teach with and we are happy she is with us at Sage Creek Elementary.


Dr. Seuss Day - Read Across America!

We had a wonderful celebration of Dr. Seuss at school!  March 2 is Dr. Seuss' birthday and in honor of him, we celebrate his quirky characters and lively story lines.  Most of all, we celebrate his message of loving to read and fostering that love in each child.  Pictured here are Ms. Greenburg's 3rd gr and Ms. Tanner's Kindergarten classes showing some Dr. Seuss spirit!

A Visit from Clark Planetarium


Sage Creek enjoyed and awesome science show brought to the school from Clark Planetarium. A student loved the way they changed the color of flames. Another liked that they shot a pencil through a piece of plywood. All students came back to class exited about science.
