Shark Shout Out to Our Featured Sponsors
Teachers have prepared virtual end of year ceremonies for the 2019 2020 that they have shared with their students in various ways throughout this week. We want to share the links to these presentations so Parents and Students have access to view them again as well as share with family members since the campus closures did not facilitate in person ceremonies. We wish all of our Sugarloaf Shark family a safe and healthy summer. The links work best when opened in the Chrome browser. Please Click “Learn More” to access the PDF with all presentation links.
Sugarloaf students can come to campus based on the schedule presented to pick up their personal items left behind, awards and end of year certificates. The schedule is also includes information about Chromebook device return (with power cord). Please click “learn more” for a link to the PDF flyer in English and Español
Superintendent Mark Porter has announced that Mr. Russell was selected the Monroe County School District 2020 Principal of the Year. Mr. Russell received multiple nominations and accolades from his staff and the community to earn him this honor and recognition. Sugarloaf School has recently demonstrated significant growth in student academic growth while maintaining their “A’ grade as a school. Harry is also one of our “go to” principals when it comes to school safety and security issues and has piloted several efforts in this regard. Safety Day at Sugarloaf School, Harry’s idea, is a tremendous demonstration of community partnership and support as representatives from law enforcement agencies across Monroe County come and bring with them some of their most specialized and impressive equipment. Our Shark Family is extremely happy for Mr. Russell and proud that he is receiving this well-deserved recognition. We thank him for his leadership and support for all of our staff, students and shark community.

Sugarloaf National Junior Honor Society students decided to make their charitable donation early this year. Instead of saving money for an end of year field trip, they gave $2,300 to the SOS Food Bank. According to NJHS president, 8th grader Abby Cowan, “During this time lots of families are going without jobs, unable to provide for their families, so we all felt and decided that it was most important to give our money to this organization, during a time like this. This tragic pandemic that is going around the whole world is affecting our community. We all just wanted to give back and help those in need as much as we could during this global crisis.”
