Daylight saving time is coming to a close, meaning we'll get to turn back the clocks an hour and catch up on sleep. This year's time change happens on Sunday, Nov. 7, at 2 a.m., shifting back to 1 a.m. Enjoy that extra hour!
I will be accepting Poinsettia orders through November 2. If you are still in need of volunteer hours, Poinsettias are a great way to full fill that commitment. Delivery, right now is scheduled for November 30th.
Two poinsettias sold = One volunteer hour

For your review, prior to the weather going south, our Inclement Weather/Emergency Closure Policy is as follows:
- Growing Tree does NOT follow the public-school schedule for snow/weather days or 2-hour delays. It is our goal to remain open as usual.
- On these days when the public schools have closures, I will send out an early alert message confirming our status via BRIGHTWHEEL
- In the event we need to close the center due to weather or an emergency, we will contact you first via BRIGHTWHEEL and then post closure information on Facebook.
Please friend us on Facebook so that you may receive notifications of all the happenings at Growing Tree: https://www.facebook.com/growing.tree.be
- In the event of an emergency, if the situation allows, we will the contact you via phone once we are safe.
