The fourth grade students in Mrs. “Graves’” class always look forward to her annual macabre art project playing on her name and celebrating Halloween. Each student creates an individual haunted house and all are displayed in the hallways to frighten all that pass by.

Under the direction of our outstanding media coordinator, Marsha Rasmussen, students at Sage Creek Elementary performed the play, Hooray for Wodney Wat by Helen Lester. These students in Mrs. Tippetts 6th grade class had a ball being the bully, Camilla Capybara, the hero, Wodney Wat and the classmates that picked on Wodney because he couldn't pronounce his r's. In the end Wodney inadvertently solves the bullying problem BECAUSE he can't pronounce his r's, and the bully stomps off into the west never to be seen again. Thanks to Mrs. Rasmussen for always making our library a fun and educational place to be.
Springville Fireman Richard Beach presented the annual Fire Prevention Assembly for all Sage Creek Elementary students this past week. Mr. Beach reminded students of the importance of having a fire evacuation plan in every home and practicing that plan. He also identified many potential fire or burn hazards that are commonly found in homes such as, unattended burning candles, space heaters too close to objects, grease fires, mircro-wave fires, and improper use of electrical cords. In summary, Mr Beach had the student council challenge the teachers in a game show format to see who could respond with the correct answers to his questions first. Students won! Sage Creek would like to express their thanks to the Springville Fire Department for all that they do to keep us safe. Special thanks to Richard Beach who makes learning about fire prevention and safety fun.
September 17th, Sage Creek Elementary School students celebrated Constitution Day by gathering at the flagpole to raise the flag, pledge to the flag and listen to the talented Mr. Courtney Curtis, our own third grade teacher, pay tribute to our country by singing the national anthem. Later in the day, students had the opportunity to watch and listen to President Obama's address to the school children of America and have discussions within their classrooms about the many freedoms afforded to us through the Constitution of the United States.
