Grade 8 2019-2020 Welcome Letter

August 2019

Dear Student, Parents, and Guardians,

Welcome to grade 8 and the Sage Team.  We are very excited to be working with you all during the upcoming school year.  We would like to remind you that eighth graders are required to do 20 hours of community service.  This year we are hoping to complete most service learning hours as a team and/or within our advisories.  Students are welcome to complete as many hours as possible over the summer and throughout the school year.  All service learning hours and paperwork will be due on or before May 22, 2020. Community service paperwork is available on the school website.  

We want you to have a successful school year and organization is a big part of that.  In order to assist you with organization, we would like you to have the following:

General supplies required for every class:

  • 1 2” 3 ring binder           
  • Plenty of #2 Pencils (pens are not acceptable!) **Pencils should be purchased quarterly**
  • Pencil top Erasers
  • Pencil case/pouch
  • 6 sturdy pocket folders
  • White lined loose-leaf paper
  • Highlighters (4 different colors)
  • Graph paper for math
  • A 1” binder for math class
  • Earbuds or earphones
  • 3 Regular composition books for health, history, and science
  • Padded backpack or chromebook carrying case

If procuring supplies is a financial hardship, please let your child’s advisor know.August 12, 2019

Homerooms and advisories will be available the week of August 20th.   Enjoy your summer and remember to keep reading!  We look forward to seeing all students on Wednesday, August 28, and parents for open house on September 12!
