Holiday Class Gift:

We are going to do class holiday gifts a little different this year with school 100% remote and no room parents to collect. For Holiday Gifts for Teachers and Staff we will be utilizing a site called GiftCrowd.com. The Graham Holiday Gift page will list all teachers and staff at Graham. If you choose to participate you are able to click on any of your child’s teachers or staff member’s name and leave them a donation and personalized card. When the donation time is over the gift receiver is notified of the gift. They will see all the greetings and messages that were left for them and they can decide what electronic gift card they want the collected amount deposited on. If you choose to participate the link will be sent out after Thanksgiving break.

In an effort to raise awareness of community resources available to assist families, District 204 will hold “Parent University: Community Resources” on Wednesday, November 18 at 7 pm. This event will be streamed live on the district’s YouTube channel and include a panel discussion focused on community agencies that provide services most needed by our families in our current environment.
