SAGE e-Learning News
What an exciting month of the first ever SAGE Summer e-learning! Students have been engaged in rigorous and fun learning projects related to exploring various topics, both indoors and out. Thank you to the parents/guardians for allowing your children to dig through your homes, yards, garages, shops, etc. to explore, create, design, problem solve, and even build games, experiments, snacks, bubbles, and much more!
We appreciate all of your support and patience through the month! We hope your Illuminators have learned a lot and enjoyed SAGE e-Learning each week!
