What's New at Sageville Elementary

Literacy Nights in November

Following conferences, we will be hosting a Literacy Night at Sageville for PreK-5th graders. To help socially distance, we will be splitting it into two nights. Grades 3-5 will be on November 4 and PreK-2 on November 8. Both nights are 5:00-6:30 pm. Each night will have 3 stations with multiple teachers running the same station but in separate rooms: we will have a Read Aloud, Literacy Games, and a Make-and-Take station. Students that visit each will get a Sageville Storm bookmark and a drawing for a BAM gift card! Hope to see YOU there!! :)

“The Girl Who Fell Into Her Desk” Watch it HERE!

“In a messy desk, there are stories waiting to be told!”

A school year with so many challenges that we had to drastically rethink how we could make a fifth grade movie…but thanks to our art teacher Kalyn Ertz Nadermann and our team of talented fifth graders, here it is! “The Girl Who Fell Into Her Desk” is a stop-motion animated movie…and we hope you enjoy it. The movie is 1 hour and there are almost 2 hours of “behind the scenes” videos! 

Grade 5 Farewell June 3rd at 6 pm – Families may attend

Dear Sageville 5th Grade Families,
Due to many families wishing to attend, we are moving the Sageville Fifth Grade Farewell to the evening. District policy states families can attend events after school hours. We are happy to announce this year’s Fifth Grade Farewell Ceremony will be held Thursday, June 3rd at 6:00 p.m. in the Sageville Gym. All families are invited to attend and masks are optional. We’re asking to limit attendance to the fifth grader and two adults only to help ensure social distancing. We do ask you to try and socially distance your families. The ceremony will include: special awards, parent recognitions, and a farewell video. We hope to see you there to celebrate our fifth-grade class. We will also live stream the event if families are unable to attend.

District Recognized Among 2021 ‘Best Communities for Music Education’

2021 Best Communities for Music Education, brought to you by the NAMM Foundation. Proud BCME DistrictThe Dubuque Community School District has again been honored with the Best Communities for Music Education designation from The NAMM Foundation for its outstanding commitment to music education.

This is the fourth consecutive year the district has received the honor.

Now in its 22nd year, the Best Communities for Music Education designation is awarded to districts that demonstrate outstanding achievement in efforts to provide music access and education to all students.

To qualify for the Best Communities designation, the district answered detailed questions about funding, graduation requirements, music class participation, instruction time, facilities, support for the music program and community music-making programs. Responses were verified with school officials and reviewed by The Music Research Institute at the University of Kansas.

“The district has long recognized the value of music education in our schools, and music remains an integral part of our curricular and extracurricular offerings,” said Stan Rheingans, superintendent of schools. “Our district commitment is underscored by tremendous partnerships throughout our community that support our work to expose students to music education. This honor is truly a community honor.”

The NAMM Foundation is a nonprofit supported in part by the National Association of Music Merchants and its approximately 10,400 members around the world.
