Special Notice

At Sugarbush Elementary, we like many surrounding school districts have been experiencing a huge increase in the number of students coming to school with severe food allergies and diabetes.  This has become a major problem as there is no real safe snack list available that covers the range of allergies that we are now seeing.  We are encouraging children to make healthy eating choices and we would hope that you will work with us by not sending in food treats when celebrating birthdays.
If you would like to send in something special to share for your child’s birthday, please consider small birthday gifts instead of sugary birthday treats. Many dessert foods can be full of unhealthy ingredients that affect students’ ability to learn.  We have provided a list of alternative gifts below for you to consider.
*  Bookmarks  *  Stickers  *  Silly Bandz  *  Packs of Cards  *  Dry Erase Markers  *  Mini Note Pads  *  Glue Sticks  *  Pencils  *  Gel Pens  *  Fun Shaped Post-It Notes  *  Mini Play-Doh  * Glow Sticks  *  Temporary Tattoos  *  Little goodie bags WITHOUT food/candy  *  A Book for the Classroom  *  A Game for the Classroom  *  A CD for the classroom  *
Thank you for considering the health and well being of our entire student population!
