    Sumner Danbury has gone paperless for flyers sent home to parents!

    Click the Peachjar icon to log in!


    On February 5, 2019, Sumner Danbury will be launching a new electronic flyer communication tool called “Peachjar.” This “green” initiative will save our school tons of paper and reduce copy costs by thousands of dollars. On top of that, posting school flyers in this electronic backpack removes a significant administrative burden from teachers, office staff, and volunteers. 

     No action is required on your part. You will receive a welcome email from our service provider (Peachjar) that includes a username and password. This is provided to give you the opportunity to manage your account and flyer delivery preferences. You do not need to login to receive or view school digital flyers.

    To ensure smooth delivery of this communication, we suggest you add to your email contacts. When you receive your first digital flyer, be sure to click “always display images.”

     This system is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers. Your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose. Thank you for supporting our efforts to ensure parents are well informed about school programs, activities, and events.

     To view school-approved digital flyers beginning February 5, 2019, simply click the Peachjar button on our school’s website homepage.



    Our School

    About Us

    We are located in southern California about thirty miles east of Los Angeles and nestled in the San Gabriel Valley in the education rich city of Claremont.  Sumner Danbury School is within walking distance of the Claremont Colleges. We are home to over 600 culturally diverse students. About 90 students with physical disabilities and/or health impairments attend Sumner Danbury each year. Our students thrive in this diverse environment because we have established clear expectations for academics and behavior that emphasize the value of learning and the importance of treating others with respect and dignity. Sumner Danbury Elementary is certainly an exciting and vibrant place for our students to learn, work, and play together.
