Sage Hill School was awarded almost $74,000 in a grant to expand its campus garden. State Farm is giving the Newport Coast private school money for its Organic Educational Center, a project that focuses on environmental responsibility. Sage Hill's organic garden was created through a service learning project by six of the school's students and Savannah's Organic Ranch, an Aliso Viejo-based nonprofit that educates children about organic gardening. The students spent a school year planning out the project before more than 100 volunteers brought the garden to life over three weekends in April.

"You look fine," said 11 dancers under the spotlight. That seemingly simple statement, delivered at a rehearsal Tuesday at Sage Hill School, contained a powerful acknowledgment of the beauty inherent in every individual. This idea lies at the core of the "Look at Me" campaign, spearheaded by Jessica Starr, a 30-year-old dancer and choreographer from West Hollywood. "Divine Direction," a nearly two-hour event, is the latest show for the 6-year-old Muse Dance Company and marks the debut of the campaign. The 24-person dance troupe will take the stage at Newport Coast's Sage Hill School at 3 and 7 p.m. Friday.

NEWPORT COAST - Members of the Sage Hill School girls' volleyball team stayed on campus late on Friday night. It's probably not the best idea when the team has to rise at 4:30 the next morning to catch a flight to Hawaii. The team stayed up for a good reason, though. Before Sage Hill traveled to compete against some of the top high school programs in the country at the prestigious Ann Kang Invitational in Honolulu, it played host to some of the best players in the world. The U.S. women's national volleyball team held an intrasquad scrimmage at Sage Hill on Friday.

The food truck pulled up an hour before the first pitch at Sage Hill School. The cook started up the grill right away inside the truck on Friday. St. Margaret's bats never caught on fire for the first six innings, and pitcher Brett Super was the reason why. The burger truck parked near the field was about to name a menu item after Super. The "Super Burger" sounded about right after the freshman right-hander went into the seventh with a no-hitter. In the seventh, Super lost the no-hitter and then the game.

The fashion in which the Sage Hill School baseball team walked off the field Friday wasn't pretty. Nevertheless, the host school will take the result, a 10-9 walk-off win against Saddleback Valley Christian.

Just so her teachers know, a dog didn't eat Claire Novotny's homework. But in the event that the Sage Hill School sophomore comes up a little short in the classroom on Thursday, some would suggest she has an iron-clad alibi.

A group interested in founding a private Christian high school in Newport Beach found a possible location at the site of their alma mater, a school that has since been converted into the West Newport Community Center. Newport Beach is hoping to get a school to open at the location, which would be shared with the city as it works to finalize a location for a new community center, officials confirmed Wednesday. The property seemed ideal to David Bahnsen, vice president of Pacifica Christian High School of Orange County's board of trustees, which is interested in the former site of Newport Christian High School.
