Earth-Day-04-22.jpgApril 22nd is Earth Day; what a better way to celebrate than coming to plant and garden at Geraci!  To celebrate this day, we will be planting flowers, pulling weeds, clearing fallen leaves and more on Friday, April 20th.  We are in need of some plants, flowers, mulch and volunteers.  Please contact Tara if you can assist in anyway.  The time of this event will be 10am-1pm.  Hope to see you there.

 

"Keep Geraci Beautiful Day" will be celebrated on Friday, April 27th.  We need volunteers to come and help make Geraci an even cleaner facility. Cleaning will be involved.

We have new garden beds! 

Thank you so much to Allyson BeCraft from UF/IFAS Extension Family Nutrition Program for our brand new garden.  This is a great addition to our center and we are looking forward to see our vegetables and flowers grow.

HEALTH CORNER

Parents if your child is sick please keep them home.  This year’s flu season is not being nice to us, and we want to keep everyone in good health.  If your child exhibits a temperature, fatigue, diarrhea or vomiting please take them to see a doctor before returning to school.


WE HAVE A NEW ROOF!

Our center was closed between March 19th and March 23rd because we were getting a new roof.  This was a much needed improvement to our center.  Thank you to Target Roofing for working so efficiently.
