Celebrating the Arts – The students and faculty at Sage Day Middle School celebrated the Arts on Wednesday, March 21st. Student artwork was prominently displayed while over 14 acts from comedy to renditions of Green Day songs filled the “theatre”. A tricky tray fund raiser was held later that evening and the book fair provided opportunities for families to browse the diverse collection of books and posters. A great night of family fun highlighting the grand accomplishments of our students and the critics all agreed that the night was a smashing success.

Remarks from members of the Sage Day Community:

“We really enjoyed and were so impressed with all the kids…We really love Sage and are so thankful that our son is there. What an amazing staff you have!”

“It was with tremendous pride that I soaked in the enormously positive energy at the Arts Festival. The display of student work and the courage, talent and sense of community that took to the stage was all part of what makes Sage Day a unique place. You help kids achieve a level of greatness which allowed them to shine. I appreciate and recognize the collective efforts and value the dedication to our students and families. Thank you!”

Celebrating the Sciences – Students and faculty had the opportunity to explore Liberty Science Center on Friday, March 30th. Students working in groups with their teachers traveled throughout the museum completing a science scavenger hunt as they investigated everything from the skyscraper exhibit to animals to various aspects of human biology. The trip was made complete with a visit through the Liberty Science Center gift shop.

MacBeth Live! Tenth and eleventh grade students were provided the invaluable opportunity to enrich their exploration of classic literature outside of the traditional classroom setting by attending the Shakespeare LIVE! Production of Macbeth performed at the F.M. Kirby Shakespeare Theater at Drew University. As part of the Main Stage Student Matinee Series, students participated enthusiastically in a lively post-show discussion with both the actors and director. An unforgettable experience!
