Teacher Appreciation Week
We will be celebrating our Teachers the week of May 2nd-6th. Our theme this year is "GROWING TREE TEACHERS ARE OUT OF THIS WORLD". Please pick up a card from the front desk and write them a note that will be added to "Road to Success". Watch the Arrival/Departure Board to follow the teachers travels. Thank you for supporting and placing value on the job this amazing group of teachers does on a daily basis. We wouldn't be Growing Tree without them!
Parent Teacher Conferences
Parent Teacher Conferences were a success! A note of appreciation to the teachers for the time and effort put into each conference; and a big thank you to parents for valuing your child's education by participating in the conferences. It does take a village and our village is strong!

- We recommend that children also have a sun hat at school to protect those faces.
