Dear Sage Creek Community,

     Crime Scene InvestigatorsLast week provided  a few examples of how we as campus want to stand out from the typical high school experience. Students from our Biomedical Sciences classes had the opportunity to have investigators from the Carlsbad Crime Scene Unit present to the class.  The students were given the opportunity check out the Crime Scene Unit vehicle (picture provided), ask questions about crime scenes, and listen to the investigators talk about the science associated with their profession.  

     Then, during the same day, our great PTSA hosted a career panel focused on medical careers.  The event had an audience of over 100 parents and students and was a success because of the great presenters and the coordination on the part of our PTSA!

     To round out the Sage Creek experience, students had a great time at our school's first dance.  I can truly say that our students know how to have a great time!

     I am proud to be a part of the Sage Creek Team and look forward to the many successes that our campus will experience this academic year.

J. César Morales
Principal, Sage Creek High School
