April 19 Schedule Update

On Monday, April 19, SAGE staff will be doing another round of deliveries to SAGE students. In this

delivery, students will receive a gift from SAGE and project materials. If you would like any extra food,

health supplies, or school supplies please let us know by April 14 so we can include those

hbickert@sageacademy.org or 651-583-6198.

We also ask that students return their STAMPED books at this time.

If you would prefer to pick the items instead of having them delivered,

please contact cgarcialuna@sageacademy.org or text 651-583-6199.

 

 

 

Community Forum on Race

As our community continues to deal with heavy emotions over the need for true and lasting change, SAGE will 

continue to offer space for our students to share their thoughts, feelings, questions, and ideas. We need the time 

to reflect and process the death of Daunte Wright by a police officer, as well as the trial of Derek Chauvin. And unfortunately,

over the past week our nation has faced more senseless deaths. This can leave one feeling hopeless, angry, frustrated,

sad, determined, and so many more emotions. We will continue to support our community and fight for equity for all its

members. If you are in need of anything- someone to talk to, supplies, help finding resources, volunteers- please reach out 

to us.

Earth Day April 22

Here at SAGE, we are committed to become a greener school. This past year, we have replaced all letting with

LED lights. We have begun using solar lights outside. We received a generous grant from Hennepin county to 

expand our recycling program as well as move to reusable kitchen storage. Last year, students helped start our

pollinator gardens and we are currently in the process of starting a veggie garden to provide fresh food to our

community.

There are wonderful ways for you to help as well:

  • recycling, reusing, and composting

  • Community clean ups- your neighborhood, around the school, local parks

  • Plant a tree Brooklyn Park Tree Sale

  • Attend the Earth Week Virtual Summit from University of Bemidji and North Hennepin COmmunity College Register


 

Food, Health, and School Supplies

SAGE has received another generous donation of goods for our students. If you are in need of food,

health/hygiene supplies, and/or school supplies, please stop by the school Monday-Thursday

between 9:00 and 4:00 to pick up items. If you know others in your community that could use

some of these supplies, you are welcome to tell them to contact us to set up a time to pick them up.

Parent Listening Sessions 

SAGE Leadership Team will be holding a parent listening session each month to provide parents with the space to ask questions and receive support during distance learning. 

Dates: Apr. 21, May 19.

Important Building Reminder

To protect the health and safety of our staff, we are limiting the number of staff in the building and

our hours in the building. Our main line phone will go directly to voicemail, which will be checked

periodically throughout the day. If you need to pick up or drop off items, you must notify the school

prior to your arrival.
