"21st Century Learning Skills for a Path to Success"

What skills and qualities make students successful as they move through the educational system and beyond? How do skills being taught in the classroom help students not just 'make the grade', but really help students thrive in elementary school, middle school, high school, college, and beyond? Our panel of educational experts will discuss multiple perspectives of developing young students into the future leaders, innovators, and creators of tomorrow.


Please join our panel moderated by Principal, Mrs. Vivian Firestone:

  • Alison Fieberg, Lead Teacher, Curriculum and Instruction, Del Mar Union School District
  • Brian Shay, Mathematics Department Chair and Teacher, Canyon Crest Academy
  • Melissa Griffen, Math Teacher, Carmel Valley Middle School
  • Gen-Sheng Feng, Ph.D., Professor, Department of Pathology & Biology, UCSD
  • Guershon Harel, Ph.D., Professor, Department of Mathematics, UCSD
  • Navrina Singh, Qualcomm Innovation Lead, Qualcomm 

All members of the community are welcome to attend.

Thank You


A great, big thank you to Mrs. O'Connell for showcasing the amazingly creative work of every child at Sage Canyon. The Art Show was a wonderful display of our talented children as well as a fun time for our Sage community to get together. It was a delight to see the smiles on the children's faces as they found their artwork and proudly showed their families.

It was also incredibly heartwarming to see the generous families donating to the ESC program during the Art Show. Our Sage families showed their support for our Art Program by donating $657 cash and $1600 online. All proceeds go towards the DMSEF and we will have more chances to show our support at all of the ESC events at Sage in the future. 
Thanks to the amazing volunteers who helped with the ESC Donation Station: Patty Tobin, Neil Duhamel, Kim Greco, Jacqueline Cordiglia, Debra Roberts, Maayan Shmuel, Cynthia Rajsbaum, & Britney Ewing.
Chipotle Restaurant Night 
Tuesday, May 13th, 5-8pm

School Spirit tastes great! Join us for our last Restaurant Night out of the school year at Chipotle Restaurant in Carmel Valley on Valley Center Drive & Carmel Creek Road.  

Chipotle will donate 50% of the proceeds from this fundraiser to the Sage Canyon PTA.
Thanks to your generous donations throughout the year, Sage Canyon PTA is able to support our school in a variety of ways.  Your PTA membership funded teacher mini grants for classroom supplies, the Dunk Squad assembly for Red Ribbon week, the Science Fair and Imagination Machine program and Healthy Choices week, just to name a few. This school year, the Sage Canyon PTA donated $25,000 to place Chrome books in our classrooms for 3rd and 4th graders. 

Support your Sage Canyon PTA by joining us at Chipotle for this fun family event.
