An Arbor Day Celebration was held at Belpre Elementary this past Thursday, April 30th.
It was an educational experience Thursday when 6 elementary students helped plant a tree in observance of Arbor Day. The students were joined by Mayor Mike Lorentz, Joyce Lorentz, Leslie Pittenger, Loran Conley, and Superintendent Tony Dunn.  The students were educated on the planting process, the importance of trees to the environment, and how trees take in carbon dioxide and give off oxygen that helps us breathe.  A tulip poplar was planted in front of the school and will provide beauty as well as serve as a replacement for any tree that needs taken down in our area due to disease. 

Reminder to Parents of 6th Grade Students

As per the Ohio Department of Health and Ohio Revised Code, one booster dose of TDaP (tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis) or ADacel vaccine is required for all students PRIOR to entry into the 7th grade.  This dose is intended to be administered as a booster dose for students who have completed the required doses of the initial series of DTaP/DT/Td vaccine.  This booster dose would have been given within the past 1-3 years.  Immunizations are available at the Belpre City Health Department or from your own family physician.  As per the Ohio Revised Code, students who have not met immunization requirements  are subject to exclusion from school.  Therefore, you MUST provide the school with documentation of your child having received this TDaP booster vaccine BEFORE THEY CAN START 7TH GRADE.
