Partner Spotlight!

This week we would like to highlight Minnesota Xtreme Cheer!

Our 5th grade girls have been passionate about doing some cheerleading during recess and have been working on developing a special Gage cheer to teach all of our Gators. Coaches from Minnesota Xtreme Cheer stopped by this week and will be back again next week to teach our girls some tips and help them get their cheers ready to share with our school!

Our Fuel Up to Play 60 Kickoff is happening on Monday, 10/30 during Recess!

Enrichment Day - Health & Wellness Focus

We are currently preparing for our first Enrichment Day of the school year - a chance for us to provide a variety of powerful learning experiences for ALL of our Gage students while allowing them to explore an interest area!

Our first one will be Friday, November 17th from 12:30-3:30 and will have a health and wellness focus. If you are interested in sharing an activity or experience with our students that day, contact Mrs. Marquardt (info below!)

Gage Gallopers

Gage Gallopers is our before-school running club that happens every Friday from 8:00-8:45. Students, staff, and family members participating do not have to run to participate - we welcome walkers too! We have over 200 students signed up to begin the program this Friday, October 27th!

With such an amazing amount of students interested, we are looking to add some more adults to help out. If you have questions - please connect with Julie Ailts (

Volunteer at Gage!

We are ready to start scheduling volunteers for this school year! Please contact Jessica (information below) or Hillery ( if you are interested in supporting our community through volunteering! Our staff is currently working to put together a list of opportunities for guests to be involved in the success of our students, but please let us know your desires too and we'll find a fit for you!

Gage Quick Connect

We try to share a full Connection with you every other week, but there is a lot going on here at Gage, with more things always in the works! Be on the lookout for a Quick-Connect on the weeks in between when there are things we just can't wait to share with you!
