April is National Poetry Month and we've spent the month in the library doing lots of different fun activities involving reading and writing poetry. One of the activities that the 4th, 5th and 6th graders participated in was writing "Blackout Poetry". It was so much fun watching the students explore pages to find just the right words to describe everything from feeling sick to family relationships. Abbie did a particularly outstanding job so we wanted to share it.
Sage Creek proudly presents a celebration in the honor of 5 wonderful individuals who have touched many lives in their tenure at Sage Creek. The students, faculty, and these educator's families will celebrate on May 24 at a special assembly. Our retirees are Dayna Tanner and Michelle Porter (kindergarten), Pam Trevenen (1st gr), John Wald (speech therapist) and Betty Hatfield (skillbuilding techncian).
Fri, Apr 28, was a special day - it was Arbor Day! Springville City donated 3 trees to our school and shared a special assembly with the students teaching them about trees and vegetation. Smoky the Bear even came! It was a fun day. Pictured here are 6th gr student council members planting the trees along our North side. Thank you Springville City!
Recently, Nebo District held a Math Olympics contest. Sage Creek hosted the competition and students from many schools participated. Our students did fabulous! In 4th grade we took the top 3 places with Vanessa Walpole in 1st place, Robert Folkman in 2nd place, and Ryan Bell and Alex Jackson tying for 3rd place. In 5th gr, Emma Croshaw took 1st place and Joshua Kent took 3rd place. In 6th gr, Wesley Walpole took 3rd place. Way to go Sage Creek Dragons!
Mr. Bowden and Ms. Scott's classes have been creating with clay! During their ancient civilizations units, they learned about the importance of pottery in the every-day lives of our ancestors. After learning how to make pinch, coil, and slab pots, the 6th graders got to make a pot of their own. After drying for several weeks and getting kiln fired at 1900 degrees, today they were ready for glazing! After one more firing, they will be ready to take home. Extra special thanks to the Springville Arts Commission for giving Ms. Scott a grant to cover the cost of clay, glaze, and brushes!
