Shakespeare came to life at Sage Creek this week as the students from each sixth grade class had a part in performing his famous, _/The Tragedy of MacBeth /_under the direction of social studies teacher, Stephanie Richards. This play is Shakespeare's shortest tragedy and is believed to have been written sometime between 1603 and 1607. The earliest account of a performance of what was likely Shakespeare's play is April 1611 and the most recent on April 1st at Sage Creek Elementary. Fantastic job sixth grade.

Mother Goose and her brood of nursery rhymes came to Sage Creek on Friday. As part of the first grade literacy core, Mrs. Trevenen and her class learned nursery rhymes. To celebrate they dressed up as a character in their rhyme and paraded around the school saying the verses to all they met. Nothing could be more fun than running into Little Bo Peep, Humpty Dumpty, or Jack Be Nimble while you're going about the day. Great job first grade!
