Community involvement is an integral component of the project-based learning at the School for Agricultural & Environmental Studies (SAGES). In fact, one of the overarching goals of this K-8 project-based public charter school in Fox Lake is to “…cultivate a community-based learning environment which will also build diverse partnerships and foster local natural resource education, outreach, preservation, and sustainability.” Ranging from area agriculture and environmental experts to local business owners, parents, and retired community members, collaborating partners participate in project implementation and provide expertise and contributions of services and funding.
The opportunity to get involved is now! SAGES is hosting two special events and everyone is invited.
