Dear Bobcat Nation,
It is an absolutely exciting time to be a Bobcat! I am proud to announce that the Bobcat Nation will at least double in size as we will grow to a student body of over 700 students for the 2014-15 academic year! The word is out about the great Sage Creek Experience and I look forward to our continued journey together as we welcome our incoming students and their families.
Equally exciting is that the CUSD Board of Trustees will be reviewing the schematic designs for the Performing Arts Center presented by three different architect groups. The Performing Arts Center is scheduled to break ground on December of 2015. The meeting will take place on Wednesday, March 19, at the District Office and will begin at 6 p.m.
I hope that you’ve also saved the date for our students’ first full-length production, Stuart Little. There are two shows scheduled to take place at the Carlsbad Cultural Arts Center. See details below.

Theater II brought their mouse in the house and performed a scene from Stuart Little. ASB handed out St. Patty's day notes and beads to help get the party started.
