Donations made by the Sage Creek PTA made it possible for the students and visitors to the school to experience and enjoy the Liberty's Story wall display. This professional display beautifully tells the story of how America gained her independence through historical documents, pictures, articles, and narratives in a numbered sequence. Teachers also have grade level materials that tie this story into each grade level's social studies core curriculum.
Have you ever wondered what it looks like when your principal’s stomach blows up? The fifth Grade students at Sage Creek Elementary got to see first hand what that can look like!

Students learned all about the three common phases of matter and the difference between physical and chemical changes. Mr. Donahue demonstrated several examples of physical and chemical changes using anything from fire to baking soda.

Students also had time to ask some interesting questions and were captivated by the very animated and fun personalities of these talented performers.
