Sage Creek School is proud to present the 2018 Teacher of the Year - Ms. Kelli Giles.  Ms. Giles has taught both 5th and 2nd gr and is currently teaching in our dual-immersion program.  She has been an educator for 19 years and has literally touched the lives of hundreds of students during her tenure at Sage Creek.  A colleague of Ms. Giles recently said, "Kelli just 'gets it'.  Whether it is working with one particular student, a class of students, or with other educators in collaboration, Kelli's skills and insights make any group she is a part of even better.  She is a pleasure to teach with and makes me a better educator by associating with her."  Not only is Kelli a wonderful teacher, she is also very involved in the community and has coached community recreation T-ball and softball and been involved in a variety of humanitarian projects.  Congratulations Ms. Giles!

K-9 Visit

As part of the DARE program, K9 officers visited with fifth grade students. Below is a list of what students said they learned.

The dogs bite really hard.

I learned that you should never do anything that's wrong. You will never now the price that you will have to pay.

I learned that K-9 dogs are very strong, fierce, and have very sharp teeth. They're also really obedient to commands that the officers gave them. They have an amazing sense of smell.

Don't do drugs; no matter what. You want to get into a mess with those kinds of dogs?

It was interesting that when the dogs would bite, they would stay in one place.

You should never run or hide from a police dog. Ouch!!

The dogs are very smart and strong!

A dog's bite can hurt really bad. Even though he had a suit on, he got puncture marks on his arms.

One of the many student jobs available for students to apply for is the role of a student mentor. This job is reserved for students in upper grades, and allows them a chance to mentor a student in a younger grade. The mentors help students catch up on homework or get extra reading practice, all while building new friendships.
