Dear Graham Families,
Thank you Graham PTA for the wonderful Valentine Celebrations on Thursday. Room parents at each grade level worked collaboratively to plan activities for the students including crafts and games. It was a great time for our students!
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. Classes are not in session for students on February 28 or March 1, 2019.
Please remember to put safety before convenience when utilizing the car rider line. Thank you for pulling all the way forward, enabling us to get a larger number of cars in the loading or unloading zone. It is important to note, we have only a few students who need assistance as they exit or enter their vehicle. Children should be able to exit or enter the vehicle on their own. If there is a concern for you and your child, please email or phone me at 630.428.6900 and I will work with you to help meet your needs.
