SAGE Mission

As the heart of the gifted community, the mission of the SAGE Center is to ensure all students, as members of a global society, foster their uniqueness, develop their potential, and embrace their true belonging through learning experiences distinguished by:

  • Courageous exploration and discovery of passions in a flexible and innovative environment
  • Support systems for students, staff, and community
  • Ownership and self-regulation in a student-driven culture

Noetic Contest Update

Results are In!

This fall, November 15th and 16th, third grade SAGE students had the opportunity to demonstrate resiliency by participating in the Noetic Math Contest, competing against third grade students from all of the country. We are going to have a small assembly in January to celebrate their success once we receive our medals from Noetic, for the students who earned them. We are extremely proud of each student’s hard work and effort in this math contest. In the meantime, if you are interested in checking out the results click the link below.

Behavior Matrix

We have been so proud of students following the Behavior Learning Expectations of being Respectful, Responsible and Professional. We discuss these during our class morning meetings. See below for a copy of the expectations we are following. As students follow these expectations, they can earn Lumens. When a student earns ten Lumens they may select a non-tangible in-class reward. Rewards vary by teacher. Ask your student how many Lumens they have earned.

The lunch time for Primary SAGE is 11:30-12:00. Online payments may be made at any time to a student's account. School lunches are free again this year. The adult lunch price is $3.75. In addition, students may purchase a la carte items. Menus are found on the district website or the link below. Please be aware that the SAGE Center's menu is different than your student's homeschool menu. Students may draw money from the account they have established at their homeschool to pay for their lunch.
