Sage Oak’s Annual Letter Drive
Being a Future World Changer starts here and now! Change starts locally and writing letters of thanks and gratitude to community members is the perfect way to spread love and encourage change. Please join us in making Sage Oak’s Annual Letter Drive another great success! 

The Letter Drive will run from Monday, November 28th, 2022 through Friday, January 6th, 2023. Please check out our Letter Drive informational sheet and click below to complete one survey per letter sent so we can keep track of our student’s selfless acts of kindness. Last year our amazing students sent nearly 80 letters to neighbors, retirement homes, teachers, military personnel, hospitals, police stations, and more. What an impact! Let’s work together to exceed that number this year and spread a little kindness.

January Science & Engineering Fair Socials
Our January Socials will include regional science and engineering fairs for our TK-8th grade students. You can look forward to science fair presentations, STEM activities, and connecting with teachers and other Sage Oak students. 

First and second-place TK-8th grade regional winners will advance to the school-wide Science & Engineering Fair on Friday, February 24th in Rancho Cucamonga. The expectation is that TK-8th grade students who enter a regional competition will commit to participating in the school-wide competition if they earn first or second place. High school participants will not participate in regional competitions but must complete the entry form in order to participate in the school-wide fair only. Check out the Sage Oak Science & Engineering Fair Planning Guide and complete the Science & Engineering Fair entry form to enter the competition.

All entry forms for TK-12th graders must be submitted no later than Friday, December 16th. 

Wondering how to get started with your science fair project? Let us help you! Sign up for our FREE TK-8th grade Oakschool class, Getting Ready for the Science & Engineering Fair, that meets on Thursdays at 10 am.
