International Potluck
Families invited to explore world cuisines
The Sage Community Network and the Sage International Club encourage you to Save the Date for Sunday, November 16th to participate in the first annual Sage International Potluck at the Sage High School campus, from 2-4pm. The potluck is a family-friendly event for all ages. The Sage Community currently represents more than 20 nationalities. We hope to have at least one food dish representative of each, plus many more! For more information and registration go to International Potluck.

Families need to bring a dish to share and register in advance to reserve their spot.  Two performances are scheduled with the Sage HS Fiddle Group and local Chinese musician, Helen Wang.  Performers are still being sought. If interested in performing please email the SCN.
Rake the Park, Saturday, Nov. 22, 10am Park TBD
Fall is an amazing time of year in Boise's parks, with the trees awash in color with autumn leaves. However, the amazing colors come at a price. The leaves fall and we end up having quite a mess on our hands.

We would like to invite you to participate in the 2014 Rake our Parks event on November 22, which helps us address the huge amount of leaves that fall.  You can form your own team, or be teamed up with other volunteers and go out and help rake the leaves in one of our beautiful parks.

Volunteers must review thCity of Boise Volunteer Handbook to participate.

Hi Sage Parents! My name is Kira Lunde (Mom of Kennedy in first grade) and I’m thrilled to be the Box Tops for Education™ Coordinator for Sage. Clipping Box Tops is an easy way for you to help our school
earn cash. Last school year, we earned over $700!   (Thanks to DeAnna Richmond who has done this the last 4 years!)  This school year, our school’s earnings goal is $1000.
