Lending Library
Sage Oak is happy to announce that the Lending Library will open for one final ordering window this school year. Sage Oak’s online lending library currently houses nearly 7,000 materials and items for lending purposes. Parents may access our online lending library during various ordering windows throughout the school year to borrow available items for minimal shipping, handling, and program fees.

All applicable fees will be deducted from student instructional fund accounts- fees may not be paid out of pocket. Keep in mind that students will need their own individual Lending Library order - parents may not submit one family order for multiple Sage Oak siblings. As per our current ordering guidelines, any curriculum being ordered through the Lending Library intended to be used for the 2022-23 school year must be core curriculum only. Please review all pertinent information via the following links.

Branch Out Summer Program
We are excited to announce a free summer program that we will be offering to our students and the community. 

Sage Oak's Branch Out summer program is a free, online program that consists of daily pre-recorded video lessons designed to prevent summer learning loss. Click here for the flyer.

Students going into grades K-7th grade will watch short video lessons, play online learning games, and complete workbook pages that review the concepts of the previous grade level and prepare them for the next grade level. The Summer Bridge workbook can be purchased using instructional funds from Carson Dellosa for the grade that the student will be entering next year. 

The middle school math program consists of short video lessons reviewing pre-algebra and algebra concepts with accompanying practice worksheets. No curriculum is needed for the middle school program. 

Links to the online program and the summer workbooks needed to order can be found here. Please be sure to let your teacher know if you are interested in participating so that they can order your workbook.

Counseling Corner
New Small Group starting for Middle School and High School students:

Real Talk - Building Healthy Relationships/Friendships (Grades 7-12)
Relationship skills are important when it comes to building healthy relationships. 

We do what we know until we know better, and then we do better (Maya Angelou)!  During these 6 weeks, we will look at what a healthy relationship is, and what it isn’t!  We will also discuss self-esteem, confidence, and being resilient!

Please note that 7-8 and 9-12 will meet separately and that students will be expected to keep their cameras on, since this is a small group setting.
