Submitted by alison.hansen on Wed, 04/29/2020 - 21:57

To the INCREDIBLE Sage Creek Community!

We could have never hoped you would come through like you did with photos and videos for our Sage Creek Staff!  We apologize if some of your videos or pictures didn't make it in! We tried so hard to include everything we got, but it's inevitable we missed something. Please forgive us!
As I personally was putting it together, it was hard to hold back my own tears of gratitude as I saw you express yours!
From the bottom of my heart - Thank you!
Your Sage Creek PTA :)

Do you have personal items at school?

Submitted by alison.hansen on Mon, 04/27/2020 - 13:54

We anticipate Governor Herbert's "Stay Home, Stay Safe" directive to be relaxed enough after May 1 to invite you to school to retrieve any personal items you or your children may want.  If you desire us to bag up your child's belongings, please fill out the following survey this week.  This same survey will be posted in each of our teacher's virtual classrooms this week and on our school website and social media sites.  Those items not bagged up will be disposed of so we can begin our deep summer cleaning process.  The survey is due Fri, May 1.

 Parents may come to school for their child's belongings Mon or Tues, May 4 or 5, from 9 am - 12 pm The procedure will go as follows - you will pull your car up to the curb, a school employee will greet you at the curb to get your student's names and will retrieve the items for you and bring them to your car.  You will not get out of your car  ... it's curbside service!  Think of it like drop-off/pick-up, that's what we envision it looking like.   We have been cleaning and disinfecting the school and are significantly liming people in our building to adhere to safe and healthy guidelines.  

Please complete this survey if you have and/or want your child's personal belongings from school (fill out one for each child):

PTA White Ribbon Week

Submitted by alison.hansen on Wed, 04/22/2020 - 13:33

In the Spring, at Sage Creek, we celebrate White Ribbon Week, sponsored by the PTA.  This week is full of lessons and fun activities to help students be smart and safe on the internet. Because of the cancellation of school for the rest of the year we were not able to hold White Ribbon Week. Now, more than ever, it is important for students to learn how to be safe on the internet because they are on it for school. Utah NetSmartz is a program that educates students about digital safety and they have provided great videos for our school to access ... for free! You can access the videos at http://www.utahnetsmartz.org/educator-resources. There are three separate videos broken down by grade level. We hope these videos help you and your families stay safe online.

In the midst of this new experience of online schooling put together by our wonderful teachers and staff, we want to make sure we have the chance to say THANK YOU! Since we can't do it in person, the PTA would love to put together a Video of your children saying Thanks!

Here's what to do:
  • Take pictures or videos of your kids holding signs or cards of appreciation directed towards the staff as a whole (not individual teachers please).
    • Images or videos of children doing homeschooling would also be great!
    • Make sure videos are no longer than 10 sec.
  • Send them in!
    • email them to pta [at] sagecreekpta.org (pta[at]sagecreekpta[dot]org) or
    • text them to 801-376-5644 or
    • send a Marco Polo to that same number!
    • Submit images/videos ASAP (no later than Sunday, April 26th)
The video will be shared with the teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week (April 27-May 1) Stay tuned for more information about Teacher Appreciation Week as we get closer!
We look forward to getting your submissions! As always, please feel free to contact us with any questions at the contact info listed above.
