In conjunction with the Parents Association, Saklan is working to become more Sugar Aware.
What does that mean?
It means that when we as a school have events or parties, we will be more thoughtful about the sorts of snacks and treats we serve. We will also ask parents to be more thoughtful when they bring treats in for a class by making sure they are not loaded with sugar or unhealthy ingredients. To help with this, the Parents Association will begin posting recipes for classroom treats in their monthly newsletter that are healthier and less sugary. We appreciate everyone’s efforts in moving to a healthier environment here at school. To understand how sugar impacts the brain, click here.
