Greetings Niwot Families!

We are thrilled to see all the terrific ways in which our students are making a difference for the earth and are excited to send trees home today with 100 students (we had over 130 students submit their Earth Day picture and/or writing)!  If your child comes home with a tree sapling, we want to make sure you have a few quick resources to help with its planting and care.  

1.  Please plant your sapling as soon as possible and soak roots in water before planting.
2.  Dig a hole about 12-18 inches wide to ensure the roots have room to spread out.  You may need to break up the soil if it is compacted to ensure the roots can get air and water.   Add compost and mulch if you have it and water thoroughly.  Detailed planting instructions are here
3.  If you can't plant right away, then store the bare root sapling in a cool, dark place... and then plant as soon as possible.
4.  After planting, follow this guidance to keep your tree healthy and thriving!
5.  Send us pictures of your trees if you can!

Thanks for helping your child plant a tree in our community and for making a difference for our planet!
A reminder that there is no school on Friday, April 29 as this is a non-student contact day. Enjoy your long weekend!
