Dear Graham Families,
We are looking forward to the PTA Valentine Celebrations this upcoming Thursday, February 14th from 2:15 to 3:15PM. Room parents at each grade level have been working collaboratively to plan activities for the students during the celebration, which will include crafts and games. Please be aware valentines may be passed out previous to the celebration, depending upon the Room parents’ and teachers’ plans. Additionally, please do not send candy with your child’s valentines. We have several students who have food allergies or other health concerns. Thank you for your understanding.
Second Semester Parent/teacher conferences are February 28 from 1:00-8:00 pm. Conferences are on an as-needed basis for selected students or new students to Graham since November.

The Jump Rope for Heart event was a great success! Please look for final results soon. The students all did a great job fundraising and participating. Thank you to Mr. Cooper and all the parent volunteers who came. It was one of the best turnouts we’ve had!
