What is The Giving Tree?
(Formally known as Celebrate with Books)
It’s a way to celebrate your child’s birthday at school. Reminder: Birthday celebrations are not permitted during the school day. Treats for the classroom are also not permitted.
How do I sign up?
Fill out the green order form and submit a check for $15.00 made out to Weaver PTA. Drop it off in the The Giving Tree box in the front office by 25th of each month prior to your student’s birthday. (July & August are due by 8/15/17 and May & June are due by 4/25/18) We suggest you submit the form now so that you don’t miss this great opportunity to celebrate your child’s birthday.
What happens after I submit the form?
We will celebrate your child in front of the whole school and they will be called onto the stage to receive a Giving Tree leaf that they will immediately hang in the Media Center for all to see. They will also be given a grade approved paperback book to take home and keep forever.
How do you celebrate it?
1st-5th graders will be celebrated at flag ceremony on the dates below. Corky, our school mascot and the The Giving Tree book crew will bring them up on stage to announce to the entire school about their birthday. Kinders will be celebrated in their own classroom until their class joins flag ceremony. Then all grades will be celebrated together.
Where does the money go to?
The PTA has created a literacy fund which will allow Weaver school to purchase the necessary equipment and books for the classrooms and media center each year. It is an opportunity to help make a mark on the school & classroom libraries forever.
