SCHS Newsletter Dec 3, 2017
Dear BOBCAT Nation,
The Sage News broadcast
was moved to the Friday slot with the purpose of providing more time in Advisory to deliver a more robust curriculum. In the spirit of continuously trying to improve the team's (staff, students, community) Sage Creek experience, we will be trying out this modified Friday schedule for this trimester.
Please note that Period 1 Off Roll students
will need to arrive 1 minute earlier as a result of slight modifications to the Friday bell schedule.
