We are in the final stages of completing our annual immunization review.
If your child does not have the required immunizations or non medical exemption certificate, you will receive a notification from the Health Dept. The exclusion date for immunizations not completed is February 15th.
Please complete your immunizations prior to the 15th to avoid exclusion from school.
You can review Growing Trees Immunization Rates on our website under Contact Us > Forms.
Growing Tree will be spreading the LOVE on Tuesday, February 14th. Your child is more than welcome to bring valentine cards to share at school. We have a few suggestions to help the day go smoothly:
- We do not have a formal Valentine party. The day is filled with many fun projects, and we provide a special "red" snack at snack time.
- If you choose to share valentines, please bring a card for each child in the class.
- Please do not address the cards as it is much easier for your child to distribute them without names.
- Please sign the valentines - This is a fun activity for children if they are interested. Hint: Start early so they can do a few at a time. Obviously our little ones cannot sign their names, but they can practice their scribbles
