Spelling Bee

On January 19th, Mesa Middle held the school wide spelling bee. Approximately two dozen 7th and 8th graders battled against each other to determine the best speller at Mesa. Luke Hasselback crushed the competition and came out victorious. “The definitions were the hardest part of the competition,” Luke stated. “I studied for 3 to 5 hours every day for a week to prepare.”

Nik Larson was Mesa’s 2nd place winner. “Memorizing the words was the hardest,” Nik Larson stated. “I've been  studying all my grammar words carefully since 2nd grade because I  have wanted to win the spelling bee”. For all his hard work and pride, he has  been rewarded with 2nd place in the Mesa spelling bee and the respect of other students because of his victory.

The American School Counseling Association (ASCA) has certified Sagewood Middle School as a Recognized ASCA National Model Program (RAMP). A prestigious honor, Sagewood is now the only middle school in the state of Colorado to have gained this certification. Schools must receive a near-perfect score on ASCA’s scoring rubric, which outlines guidelines for building and maintaining student achievement, behavior, counseling curriculum, school culture, and several other factors, in order to become certified.
