Sage Canyon Elementary is proud to be a part of Colorado's Douglas County School District, where parents are provided the opportunity to choose the educational environment and programming that best meets their child's needs. The mission of Sage Canyon is to foster a supportive and challenging school community that fuels a contagious spark for learning and recognizes students as unique individuals. Here at Sage Canyon, we use a Project Based Learning approach to create a solid foundation of fundamental and higher order thinking skills through structured curriculum that is consistent and aligned throughout the grade levels. Project Based Learning (PBL) is a dynamic approach to teaching in which students explore real-world problems and challenges, simultaneously developing cross-curriculum skills while working in small collaborative groups. Because project-based learning is filled with active and engaged learning, it inspires students to obtain a deeper knowledge of the subjects they're studying. Research also indicates that students are more likely to retain the knowledge gained through this approach far more than through traditional textbook-centered learning. In addition, students develop confidence and self-direction as they move through both team-based and independent work. 


****Important information for ALL KINDERGARTEN students

Dear Kindergarten Parents and Guardians,

We are thrilled to have your Kindergartener joining our school beginning this fall. We have a special transition process in place for our kindergarten students called Balanced Beginnings. The first days of school will be staggered, with small groups of students coming rather than the entire class. This eases the transition into Kindergarten and allows teachers and students to build positive relationships, introduce the new environment and routines, and collect informal data as they begin their year with students.

This means that Kindergarten students will not begin full days of school until Monday, August 12th.Kindergarten students will be assigned a half day to come in and transition into their classrooms with a small group of 6-8 students on Wednesday, August 7 or Thursday, August 8. Then, Friday, August 9 will serve as a planning day for Kindergarten teachers so they can use the information they collect when they meet with transition groups and plan for targeted and individualized instruction in the first weeks of school.

This will also allow us to design class lists that are balanced and best meet the needs of our smallest learners. You will be notified of your child’s teacher on Friday, August 9th.

Your child’s transition day assignment is:

  • ●  Wednesday, August 7: 9:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. Students whose Last Name starts with A-G

  • ●  Wednesday, August 7: 12:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.Students whose Last Name starts with H-M

  • ●  Thursday, August 8: 9:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. Students whose Last Name starts with M-R

  • ●  Thursday, August 8: 12:30 p.m. - 3:00 pm. Students whose Last Name starts with S--Z

    We are looking forward to meeting your Kindergartener and making their transition a smooth and joyful one!

JT Wish Week (For Donation Boxes) - Made with PosterMyWall.jpg

Wrangler Families,

Sage Canyon is partnering with our friends at Douglas County High School for Wish Week 2019! Each school year, the entire feeder area for Douglas County High School comes together for a great cause; to raise money to grant a wish for a child suffering from a terminal illness through a partnership with Make-A-Wish Foundation of Colorado. This year we are all raising money for JT, a local boy living with liver cancer whose dream is to visit Hogwarts. As a community, our goal is to raise $50,000  to send JT and his family to Universal Studios to visit Hogwarts. We have lots of exciting ways you can get involved, show your support and raise money to make JT’s wish come true.
