What happens after I donate?
There are some new and exciting changes for the 2019-20 school year! During the month of your child’s birthday, participating students will be called to the media center to celebrate. Parents are welcome! Your child will receive a personalized bookmark and will receive a book of their choosing from a collection of handpicked titles by Dr. Schmidt. The Giving Tree birthday crew will also hang a leaf on the tree in the media center with your child’s name & birthday on it.
Why did the program change?
Over the years, flag ceremony has become too long and affects our teachers’ important classroom time. This new process allows student’s to be honored for their birthday and gives them special time to get to know our new principal.
Can I join in the fun?
YES! Please join Dr. Schmidt and the Giving Tree Crew in the Media Center.
1:00 - 1:30pm for students in TK/K
2:10 - 2:30pm for students in 1st-5th
