Pear Tree Greetings goes back to school

In honor of everyone who is going back to school this month, Pear Tree Greetings’ team members decided to join in with sharing photos of their school days. Enjoy. Seriously, enjoy. Comments are more than welcome!DaniThis is Dani and her big brother, on Dani’s first day of Kindergarten. It did not surprise us to find out that Dani always wanted to be a Mouseketeer, like Britney and Justin, but she refused to wear the mouse ears because they gave her hat hair. So she settled for being our social media coordinator instead, a slower, but far more reliable path to stardom.

Brianna
This is Brianna on her first day of Kindergarten. Brianna keeps all of our online marketing efforts in line, and was clearly just as organized at the age of 5. She has since traded her giant backpack for an equally large handbag that weighs more than she does.

What is Rosh Hashanah

I grew up in rural small town Minnesota where there isn’t a strong Jewish presence. Almost everyone knows what Christmas is and what the New Year brings.

Since I had a desire to learn about the traditions of Rosh Hashanah, I thought maybe our customers would be interested as well. That’s why I offered to write this post, and share what I learned!
