In addition to Bandingo we have worked with LoveBoards Charcuterie if you would like to enjoy a family snack while playing. There are two options available for families to pick from. They are the Graham Classic which includes 2 cured meats, 2 artisanal cheeses, fruits, crudite, olives, nuts, and sweet treats and the Graham Sweets board which includes baked treats, assorted chocolates, and various candy. We have attached the flyer with pictures and details of each option. Orders must be in by January 27th and the PTA will deliver them to your front porch on the afternoon of January 31st.

Girls on the Run:
Calling parents of all 3rd - 5th grade girls! Please consider learning more about Girls on the Run and the program being offered at Graham this spring by registering for the GORTC Family Open House. Girls on the Run will discuss the program structure and answer any questions you have so you feel confident in registering your girl for this exciting opportunity.
Two ZOOM Family Open House events are available, but registration is required. Please submit the linked form for the Zoom invite information to be emailed directly to you. If you are interested in volunteering, planning is currently underway. Please send an email to StephanieMelone@gmail.com for further training information. Graham is targeting a beginning of March program start date. Any questions, please reach out directly to Stephanie Melone.
*At this time, Graham anticipates that the virtual GOTR option will be offered. In person practices are not anticipated this season.
