A key variable in predicting high levels of student achievement is an engaged parent community that is involved and supportive, both of which are at extraordinary levels on our campus.
Whether it is helping build sets for our theatre productions, volunteering time in our classrooms, helping to decorate a school dance, or being a liaison for one of our programs, our parents act as a true partner in our mission to prepare students to thrive as responsible citizen’s in an ever changing world.
In addition to the great individual efforts of our parent community, we have two exceptional parent organizations that will ensure that Sage Creek High School will always provide students a second to none high school experience: The Sage Creek PTSA and The Sage Creek Foundation.
While each has its own distinct organizational mission, both strive to provide students, staff, and our community the resources needed to support a college going and career ready student community. Click here
to go to the end of this email and view a brief summary of our two great parent organizations. We are fortunate to have such a high level of parental support.
