Class of 2016
Congratulations to an amazing group of children! Cheers to you!
September 2: Closed GT Work Day
This time of year is so bittersweet as we say goodbye to families that have been with us for many years. We are so proud to have been apart of your lives! Please know that you will always be a part of the Growing Tree community and we wish your family all the best!
Kitchen RemodelYou may have heard the sound of hammers and saws coming from our kitchen. We are in the process of giving it a facelift. Anticipated completion date is the end of August. In the meantime we will be catering in hot lunches 3 days a week to supplement our menu.
September Slots for Kindergarten ChildrenThe TreeHouse will be open through September 9th to accommodate the first week of school for incoming Kindergarten children. We have a limited number of slots so please reserve your space now. The cost is $240.
Thank YouA big "thank you" to Stacy Wooden, Danielle Fegley, Agnes Stoll, Debbie Northup, Kristi Russ, Zach Cochran, Tom Rundle, and my amazing staff for volunteering at the BBQ. I could not have done it without you! Please remember to log your volunteer hours in the book at the fron desk
New ClassroomsChildren will move into their new classrooms on Tuesday September 6th. In August you can expect:
- A call from your child's new teacher
- A welcome letter
- An ASQ Developmental checklist that you will need to complete and return by September 6th please
Mixed Bag Fundraiser
Do you need volunteer hours? Why not sell Mixed Bags to your friends and family. You will receive 1 hour for every $25 dollars sold. Catalogs will be available the week of August 15th. Are you looking for a great bag to bring blankets, stuffies snowsuits etc back and forth to school? Check out the Grocery bags on page 25 of the catalog. These bags not only hold a lot, they fit nicely in cubbies and they fold up to the size of a wallet when not in use!
Volunteer HoursIf your child is going off to kindergarten, you will need to complete your volunteer hours prior to withdrawing from the Center please. Here are a few jobs that I have available right now. Let me know if you are interested.
- Help move out of the TreeHouse
- Trash cleanup around the Center
- Sell Mixed Bags
Message from Board
- At least one change of clothes in their cubby because Growing Tree kids love water
First Friday will be held on Friday, August 5th. Cost is $20 per child. In August First Friday will be on September 9th (note date change due to Labor Day weekend). Please pay prior to Friday night, so that we may pay the teachers in a timely manner. Just a reminder, if you cancel after signing up, you will still be responsible for First Friday fees.
