It was great to meet many of you at the PEP/SAGE Curriculum Night. Thank you for taking the time to join me and learn a little more about what we are doing together in PEP and SAGE.

Please send a sleeve of paper cups, a mug or a water bottle for your child to get water when they are in the portable. We have a water dispenser that has no fountain spigot. The kids must have a cup or bottle to get water. Please make sure this is labeled with your child’s name. I will store them in the portable so they are there every week and your child won’t have to remember to bring something. They get really thirsty and it takes time from our program when they have to go back to the building for a drink.

If a SAGE binder comes home, please help your student remember to bring it back the following week. They will be at quite a disadvantage without it in class. Also, please do not work on Problem Solving at home. I want to see your child working through the problem. This helps me see how I can support them and what skills they have mastered.

We are working on Our Fantastic Elastic Brain in PEP, 3rd and 4th grade SAGE is working on Bubble.ology, 5th grade at Sunny Hills is doing Paper Towel Testing and 5th grade at Discovery is beginning their Robotics Exploration. All grade levels are working on challenging problem solving and some brain stretching games.

Feel free to get in touch anytime you have a question or would like to speak to me about something. It is usually easiest to get in touch with me by email and ask that I return your call.

Happy Fall!

Cindy Parsons

The students in the SAGE program, along with their teachers, want to thank the Issaquah
Schools Foundation for their donation of LEGO EV3 Robotics Kits. These kits allow all 5th
grade SAGE students to participate in this great STEM activity. ISF supports our students
with contributions made to their organization by the Issaquah community. Find out how you
can be a part of this worthwhile endeavor at

SAGE Expectations

SAGE students will attend class each week with their binder and all due assignments.

SAGE students will be collaborative, enthusiastic and persistent learners working toward their chosen individual goal.
