Sage News: Week of January 18, 2021

Week of January 18, 2021

I Can Resolutions
January is the perfect time to re-focus on our I CAN theme by setting fresh goals. Below are some ideas to use as a jumping-off point to help you begin the year strong! We encourage you to take advantage of the fresh start and work with your teachers to help your children meet their goals.

Here are some ideas that you can implement this month:

Second Annual Living History Event
Did you hear what’s new with this year’s living history event? First, we are offering additional student materials. Materials now include digital options geared towards older students. Second, students now have the option to complete a digital project instead of a physical board.

Finally, students can sign up to present their project live in a small group via Zoom (this is optional). This is a great project to do for social studies for the next learning period!
