Dear Graham Families,
Verification and registration for next year has already begun. What is the difference between verification and registration?
Verification is an online process used to verify that all your information is current and up to date. Registration is the actual process of enrolling your child (ren) in school for the upcoming year. Registration paperwork was sent home on April 19th for returning students and future kindergartners who have siblings currently at Graham. Kindergarten packets are handled separately and contain the information pertinent to new student enrollment. Please complete the verification online along with the paperwork and return to the Graham School office by Friday, May 18th. Please remember you are able to pay your fees using Pushcoin as an option. You may also pay school fees with a check, cash or money order for the exact amount.
Parent Input Form 2018-19
Please see the attached letter and form if you would like to share information with me regarding your student’s placement for next year. Please remember we will not be able to honor specific teacher requests, nor consider social factors, such as a best friend or the amount of friends your child will have in the new classroom.

Blessings in a Backpack Packing Event - Monday, May 7 8am
Our last "Blessings in a Backpack" packing event is Monday, May 7th at 8am (a before school event.) We will once again be packing food for the students at Olney Allen Elementary School who need food over the weekends. It is a great way for our students to help our community and make a lasting impact in the lives of others! We are also using this community service event to kick off our Teacher Appreciation Week - if you would like to, please bring a new toothbrush, toothpaste, or dental floss to donate in honor of your teacher!
To join us, please sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0545aaaa22a6f94-blessings2
Teacher Appreciation Week May 7-11
We have a remarkable week planned to honor our fearless leaders. Along with your generous donations, the PTA will be able to provide a week's worth of special moments - from luncheons & snack carts to heart-felt memories and thanks. If you would like to contribute, please sign up here:
THANK YOU to everyone who has signed up to volunteer, donate or contribute to our events!! We appreciate your support and time!
Reminders and Requests:
• Please note the last day of school, June 1st, is a full day of classes for elementary students.
• When calling in your child’s attendance or late arrival, please call the absent line 630-428-6900, option 3.
• Please remember to include your child’s name and classroom teacher on a sticky note, when dropping off a forgotten item or bringing in lunch.
