In the 2010-2011 school year, Sage celebrated its 20th anniversary with a community service initiative called “20 for 20.” To mark this important milestone, students, parents, faculty, and staff performed over 20 acts of kindness, service, and good work that benefited Foxboro and the surrounding communities. Donating warm coats for kids, cleaning up along the Charles River, and running in a 5k for diabetes were just some of the service projects the school organized for its 20 for 20 initiative.
This project united the whole school in a celebration of service that has become a permanent school-wide fixture of the Sage experience.
Here are some of our service projects for the 2012-2013 year:
- The Great Coin Race 2013 April 4, 2013
For the third year in a row, Sage participated in “The Great Coin Race,” a special community service program by Kids to Kids/World Connect. The school is divided into two Sage teams that ‘race’ by collecting change to raise money for a project that the Service at Sage Committee has chosen in El Salvador called Broadening Horizons. This project aims to increase the interest in and access to unique educational experiences for youth by organizing an activity day (led by Peace Corps Volunteers) for youth introducing science experiments, arts and crafts and teamwork building activities and by training local teachers and youth outreach volunteers to lead these activities and incorporate them into schools on a permanent basis. Collectively, Sage raised $1228.58 for Kids to Kids World Connect.
World Connect is thrilled that we are participating again and has even highlighted Sage on their website. Check it out at http://www.worldconnect-us.org/kidsconnect/sage-school-great-coin-race-2012/
We thank you for your support and go Sage!

Each Middle School and Junior classroom, as well as the Sage Administration Team, were given the age and gender of a local child whose family was in need of assistance during the holidays. In early December, the Middle School students, using money they had earned doing chores, went on a shopping field trip to purchase gifts for those families.
