PTA Newsletter - 12/9/19

Reported by on 12/9/19

Here’s what is coming up….

Holiday Class Gift:
Don’t forget that room parents are collecting money (the suggested amount is $5-$10) for a class gift for your child’s teacher! You can send an envelope into school with your donation. Please address the envelope to CLASS PARENT and make sure to include your student’s class. (i.e. Class Parent for 2G). Any questions, please email Jennifer Amato at or 630-740-4041

Maker Space:
Every Thursday and Friday, volunteers staff our Makerspace so that the students have access to more involved projects and activities. This includes programming robots, creating their own video games, themed Makerspace challenges, and much more. Without the help of volunteers, this would not be possible.

We are in need of volunteers to fill several open time slots for Makerspace. No experience is needed. Just the desire to work with students. If we have any interested parents, grandparents, etc that would be willing to help, please contact Brooke Murphy at:

Next PTA Meeting:
The next PTA Meeting will be held on Thursday, December 12th at 9:30 am. There will be door prizes, so please plan to attend!

Restaurant Night:
Join us at Chipotle on December 19th for our next restaurant night. The flyer is attached.

Winter Party:
Our Winter Party will be held on Friday, December 20th. Thank you to the parents who have volunteered to work that event!

Co Chair Meeting:
If you are serving as a chair for any of our committees, please mark your calendar for our next Committee Co Chair Meeting. It will be held on Thursday, January 9th at 9:30 am.

Graham’s Global Adventures Planning Meeting:
We will be meeting to plan Graham’s Global Adventures Night which is an event celebrating the diversity of our families (slated for April 15th) on Friday, January 10th at 2 pm. Please come to the planning meeting to help us put together a cultural fair representing what makes Graham uniquely special including demonstrations surrounding each culture’s holidays, clothing, artwork, music, and special traditions. This will be a world showcase— a night for students and families to share and learn from each other and inspire meaningful connections and conversations! If you are interested in helping in this event, please come to the planning meeting. We’d love to hear your ideas!

Thank yous:
A big (belated) thank you to Andrea Walter for serving as our Membership Chair and creating the school directory on DirectorySpot for us this year! Also to Margie Polcyn for always making sure our staff birthdays and special occasions are celebrated with a special Sunshine cake!
