Local Candy Store Offers Sweet Rewards For Good Grades | Families
Good grades never tasted so sweet for kids in the D.C. area.
Local candy store, The Sugar Cube, located at 1218 King Street in Alexandria, introduced a new academic appreciation program to reward a good report card this week.
Students in grades 2-8 can bring in their spring 2012 report cards any time before July 15, and then pick out a small treat of their choice. Children can choose from rainbow milk chocolate nonpareils, gummy alphabet letters, all-natural jellybeans, certified nut-free M&M’s, and sugar-free gummy bears.
“A celebration is in order when kids have worked hard all year and are looking forward to their summer vacations,” said sisters and Sugar Cube owners, Kimberly and Alyssa Theodore. “How better to recognize their efforts than to kick off the summer with a sweet treat?”
When I was a child growing up in the area, Chuck E. Cheese’s located on Richmond Highway in Alexandria would reward good report cards with free tokens. That was a good day for my classmates and I, and it incentivized us to do well in school.
The Sugar Cube also plans to have a two-week long candy camp this summer for kids aged 4+.
The Sugar Cube is open Tues. – Fri. from 11 a.m. to 7p.m., Sat. and Sun. from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and closed on Mondays.
