Students at Sugar Grove School participated in National Breakfast Week during the entire week. The program encourages children to begin each day with a healthy breakfast. Each student who participated had the chance to be entered into the daily drawing for one of the prizes. There were also multiple prize opportunities in the serving line for the students who picked up a “lucky tray” which was randomly pre-selected by the cafeteria staff before each group came through the line.
More than 100 prizes were given away this year during Breakfast week at Sugar Grove. According to cafeteria manager, Elizabeth Aker, this was the largest number of prizes in any year the school has participated. We would like to thank the Sugar Grove School Alumni Group for sponsoring the donation drive that brought in items for this cause as well as Rowland Creek Church of the Brethren for their generous donation of the two bikes and other items as well as those in the community and beyond who contributed in various ways to our program. It was the best yet. There was over 95% participation in National Breakfast Week from Sugar Grove School’s student body–there were even enough prizes to include our former students who still eat breakfast at Sugar Grove but attend school at Marion!
On March 10, 2017, the school gathered in the gym for the final grand prize drawing of the week. The large teddy bears, cash prizes and two bikes were the prizes on today’s list of giveaways. The bikes were won by Dalton Ray and Kennedy Mattingly. Dalton took his bike for a ride around the gym while Kennedy marveled at hers.
