January SCN Meeting

PYP and IB in practice at Sage (and at home)!
 

January 28, 2014 - 6 pm

at The Middle/High School

Please come to our next meeting Tuesday the 28th of January.  The business meeting starts at 6:00pm with the PYP/IB presentation beginning at 6:30.


Dani Zwolfer, PYP Coordinator and Jacque Bettencourt, Elementary Director, will share how PYP and IB values are implemented in the day to day activities at school and can be supported in the home to assist our learners on their IB path.  This will be a valuable session for understanding and developing tools to help your child excell in the IB environment.

If you know for sure you will be attending, RSVP here https://www.facebook.com/SageSCN#!/events/1401264700125345/ (so we can prepare the right number of seats etc.)... however, drop-ins are always more than welcome :)

 

Thank You!!!

Many of you contributed to the school.community over the past couple of weeks.  Some participated in the teacher appreciation lunches, some contributed to the IB team luncheon (some did both!).  Others helped out with the school cleanup day over the MLK holiday.  All of you are appreciated!

Ignite Sage!

Sage has been approved for an ignite event (tentatively scheduled for March 18th... in the auditorium at the state capitol!).  The idea behind Ignite sage is for various members of the community (parents, students, faculty, staff etc.) to tell their Sage story in the Ignite format.  More details will be coming soon, but for an idea of what an Ignite event is like check out http://www.igniteboise.com

A Sage Holiday Story...

We wanted to share with you the story of a family the Sage 3rd graders sponsored over the holiday season.  What follows is the final "recap" email"

"Good Morning All!
 
I promise this is the last email regarding the family that Sage 3rd graders sponsored. Tara is a single mom, with four very young children living at Interfaith Sanctuary. The Sanctuary is a homeless shelter, housing single men, women and families, located right off of the connecter on River Street. The conditions could be considered "cramped" and that would be on a good day. The floors are cement, and families sleep in bunk rooms with other families. The Sanctuary is in a constant state of renovation and used to be a warehouse, so most of the ceiling are high and industrial, leading to a loud environment. Residents, including mothers and children cannot be in the shelter after 7 a.m. and it is up to the residents to find a warm place to stay for the day, often at one of the warming shelters a couple of blocks away. 
 
I give you this background to let you know just how special and important your support is. And support you DID! My car was packed with treats, warm clothes and a ton of gift certificates. I wish each and every one of you could have seen the resident's eyes light up as we brought bag after bag after bag in. One mom said, "Where's Tara? She's got to see this!" So thank you, thank you, thank you for your generosity and kind spirits. I'm so thankful to know that my children get to be in school with a community of kind spirited families! 
 
And a HUGE thank you Sharon Morrison (Rowan's mom) for coordinating and organizing this opportunity to give a family a holiday celebration that they may not have been able to have…. 
 
Happy holidays to all, Sarah (Morgan's mom) 

Congratulations and thank you to the 3rd grade class and the Sage community for such a fantastic holiday outreach!
