Throughout the month of January Sage Creek students have been sampling the Chinese Culture in the media center. At the same time, Sage Creek administration, teachers and parents have been gathering information about the possibility of beginning a Chinese Duel Immersion language program in the first grade next year Mrs. Rasmussen, Librarian, took time to find and display clothing samples, pictures of food and landscapes in addition to reading stories about and celebrating the Chinese New Year with the traditional silk dragon. Students always have fun learning in our library!! Thanks Mrs. Rasmussen!

Liberty Story

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 This professional display beautifully tells the story of how America gained her independence through historical documents, pictures, articles, and narratives in a numbered sequence.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. Thanks to the efforts of current PTA Presidents, Heidi Johansen and Tori Eaton, past president Amber Painter, president elect Diana Harmon, secretary Lindsay Anderson, and the fund-raising profits provided by the family and friends of Sage Creek students, this arresting wall of art and literature will be a lasting reminder to all of the significance of our nations history and the route it took to provide us with the rights and freedoms we enjoy today. Thank you PTA!

What Matters?

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! Mr. Donahue, from the Children’s Museum of Utah, presented Reaction Time to an attentive audience of fifth graders. 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. Each class also got to participate in hands-on experiments to discover how those changes can take place. Thank you Children’s Museum of Utah!

Utah Opera Entertains Sage Creek Students

Sage Creek Elementary students were treated to an incredible vocal learning experience with members of the Utah Opera during an assembly on Monday. Students learned that an Opera is a story done entirely by singing and that it involves a soprano, a mezzo soprano, a tenor and a baritone. Members of the Opera demonstrated each vocal type as well as the difference between an aria, a duet, a trio, and a tutti. Students also had time to ask some interesting questions and were captivated by the very animated and fun personalities of these talented performers. Everyone left this assembly having learned something they hadn't known before. Thank you Utah Opera for taking the time to care about kids!
