Sage Creeks Secret Garden

There is a Secret Garden at Sage Creek Elementary! Media Specialist, Marsha Rasmussen, has created a “Secret Garden” in the Media Center’s kiva for all students to enjoy. The kiva is created after the book, The Secret Garden, a novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, which was initially published in the autumn of 1910 and has been a favorite of children and adults ever since. Sage Creek students will enjoy the Garden atmosphere as they enjoy media and other presentations during library and class time. Thank you Mrs. Rasmussen!
