Classroom and Learning Period Meeting Teacher Observations

Beginning in January, administration will be dropping into classrooms and learning period meetings to conduct short teacher observations. This is a great opportunity for the school to see the amazing work our teachers are doing, but also a chance to get to say a quick hello to our students and parents. 

We will work to make these non-disruptive to your meeting but did want to share the information so you were all aware if there was another person joining your LP meeting. We are very much looking forward to meeting as many families as we can at their meetings!

Get ready for MORE animal action!  Join us on the Sage Stage this Friday, January 7th at 9:00 am as we welcome back zoo educators from the World Famous San Diego Zoo.

Sage Oak Materials Reminder

The Business Services department consistently works to help your orders get processed and paid for as quickly as possible. We hope shipping items directly to your homes has been a helpful way for us to improve the level of support we provide to you and to the teachers. 

Please continue to help us offer this method of delivery by using the order agreements to indicate receipt for any unreceived items received in your possession. Please click below for a refresher on how to use order agreements. Because Sage Oak must wait for confirmation that items are received before we pay for them, your efforts to mark items received as quickly as possible allow us to release payment in a timely manner and maintain good relations with our material providers.
