Sagewood provides an environment where students feel comfortable, safe and accepted. Open communication between parents, teachers and students encourages a sense of teamwork and cooperation. The school acknowledges and celebrates the achievements of students and staff in learning and leadership. Sagewood also appreciates and values diversity, self-worth and integrity.
The Sagewood community focuses on increased student achievement with the intent to promote student success and prepare students for the future. The curriculum promotes intellectual curiosity and creative thinking, while challenging students to reach their full potential. High levels of achievement are accomplished through measurable academic standards aligned with the major instructional goals.
Parents and community play an active role in the academic education and character development of the students. Partnerships among all stakeholders demonstrate the commitment to every learner being a champion.
The Sagewood Parent-Teacher Association is affiliated with the Natrona County Council of PTA, the State PTA and the National PTA. Our PTA receives monthly magazines, bulletins, educational and political information, and has a recognized voice in national and state government. We encourage all parents and staff to actively participate in the Sagewood School PTA by attending meetings, serving on committees, and providing support for school activities. Dues are $3 per person. The PTA sponsors many events during the school year, including family bingo night, potluck dinners, cookie sales and more.
Parent-teacher conferences are held twice a year to discuss grading systems and grading reports. Parents also will receive regular newsletters and information from the school.
Sagewood strives to provide each child with a complete knowledge of the basics of education needed to survive in a changing world. These basics include required skills in reading, math and language. When Sagewood students complete fifth grade, they will be able to read with comprehension, communicate intelligibly through writing and know how to add, subtract, multiply and divide.
We use the Bridges math program, Balanced Literacy in conjunction with Literacy by Design, 6+1 Traits of Writing and Step Up to Writing, as well as a schoolwide positive behavior support system including BullyProofing and Second Step. Students also will be prepared for the modern world by achieving the skills needed to operate and problem solve with the newest technology.
Students may participate in Student Council, Lego Robotics Club, academic clubs, fine arts clubs and Early Bird Reading.
Fifth-graders may play basketball and volleyball through the Casper Rec Center.
Sagewood students have access to tutors, counselors and many other resources available throughout the district.
Breakfast is served daily at Sagewood.
