Dear Graham Families,
Happy Spring Break! We have a longer break this year. Please mark your calendars, school resumes Wednesday, April 3rd. Next week, please call if you need to come to the main office at Graham to make sure someone is here. If the office is closed, please leave a voicemail message and we will return your call when we return. If you need information immediately, please call the District Office.
Report Cards will be available this evening after 5PM. Please remember you can check your student’s attendance through the Home Access Center, as well.
ILLINOIS ASSESSMENT OF READINESS (IAR)
The week after we return from Spring Break, students in Grades 3, 4, and 5 will be taking the Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR) assessment. Testing starts April 8th and will be completed the week of April 15th. Parents of 3, 4, and 5 grade will receive an email explaining the assessment in detail and the schedule for each grade level. We are looking forward to supporting our 3, 4, and 5 graders as they take the test. A schedule of school wide spirit days will be sent home the week we return.
GRAHAM SCHOOL VOLUNTEERS
The Volunteer Appreciation Tea will be April 12th at 2PM here at Graham School. Details forthcoming closer to the event. Please save the date. We are looking forward to appreciating you.
