STEM Workdays

Workdays will be Saturday, October 2, 16, and 23 from 9-12:00

We will have three workdays this fall to continue clearing the invasive species in the outdoor classroom that was recently certified as a Georgia Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary. We will be adding mulch to the path and under the benches and teaching platform.  Sagamore received a grant for additional native plants and has purchased 15 native azaleas and 50 native ferns to be added to the area. The plan is to include the fourth grade in the planning and planting of the plants as part of their STEM project, Improving Your Local Ecosystem in conjunction with their study of ecosystems in their science class.

Visitor Policy Change

Sagamore Hills Families:

Message from DeKalb County School District

Out of an abundance of caution and due to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases, we will continue the visitor protocol that was in place for the 2020-2021 school year.
 Visitors and volunteers will not be permitted in buildings until further notice.  We will continue to monitor conditions and data provided by the Department of Public Health(DPH), the DeKalb County Board of Health (DBOH) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).  It is our sincere hope that conditions will improve, and we will be able to reopen our doors and benefit from the value that our committed volunteers add to our schools and centers.  
 We appreciate each of our volunteers and community partners.  In the interim, we will look for and we invite you to help us identify opportunities for volunteers to support our school community virtually.
