December Happenings at Sage Point Elementary
December brings in the snow
The winter season is upon us, and my hope is that your family is enjoying this special time of year. As we left November and the first large snowfall, December comes in with cold weather. It is important that each student comes to school with a warm coat each day, as we go outside for recess. Please be sure to write your child's name in their coat, as we currently have several lost coats in our lost and found.
All families received information about our district survey, we have had only 10% of our Wildcat families respond. We are asking that any family that has not taken this survey, to please do so. The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete, but gives us a wealth of information. This survey closes on December 9th. bit.ly/22ParSur
As we end our calendar year, I wanted to thank all of you for being an important part of our Sage Point community and a vital part of your student's education. Thank you for supporting our office staff, teachers, and our classified staff members as they do their best everyday for our students.

Frigid Temperatures Are Here: Please Prepare Your Students
In Moses Lake Schools, principals use the following general guidelines for decision making related to recess:
- Regular outdoor recess will be held when outside air temperature and/or wind chill is 15° (F) or greater. The presence of rain or snowfall can influence this decision.
- Indoor recess will be held when outside air temperature and/or wind chill is lower than 15° (F). Indoor recess is always an option when a principal decides that steady rainfall or heavy snowfall have created unsafe conditions.
- Whenever students are sent outside in cold temperatures, building staff watch for individual children that are not wearing appropriate clothing and may be at risk. In the event that a child does not have access to clothing necessary for cold temps or snow, our schools are able to help! Just let us know.
PTO Winter Carnival- Volunteers Needed
Sage Point PTO would like to hold a Winter Carnival during school hours on January 20, 2022. The students will participate in the carnival in the gym instead of going to PE, music, or library that day. The carnival will consist of 5-6 tables of different activities: crafts, active games, carnival games, snacks etc.
Attendance is important for school success! We teach from the first bell to the last. When students miss instruction, it is hard to keep up. If your child is sick or on vacation, please call our attendance line at 509-766-2444 ext 2468 to report that absence.
You can also message Mrs. LeGrand through Remind to report your student's absence. If an absence is not reported, we will give you a call.
Call us if your child will be absent!
End of School messages go out at 2:45 PM. If you are having your child take a different way home, please call the office by 2:30 PM so we can make sure your child is in the right spot. Many times they forget what you told them and are waiting in parent pick up(or bus) when it is the other way around.
Again this year - no student checkout after 3:00pm.
Location: 4000 West Peninsula Drive, Moses Lake, WA, USA
