Dear Graham Families,
We look forward to seeing our families on the first day of school on Tuesday, August 21st.
I am very excited to introduce our new Falcons to the Graham School community. Please welcome: Mrs. Stone – Student Services Coordinator, Ms. Morgano, Kindergarten Teacher, Ms. Rendek – Special Education Teacher, Ms. Wortham, SC Special Education Teacher, Mrs. Dewan, School Psychologist, Ms. Banyai, Occupational Therapist. Mrs. Christensen will be on maternity leave for the first 6 weeks of school. Mrs. Sortino will be the long-term substitute for our building.
Classroom assignments will be available for viewing on eschool/Home Access on August 13, after 4PM. Parents will need their log-in and password to access the system. Contact the office, if you do not have your log-in information for Home Access. For Kindergarten and New Students – If you have not done so already, you will need to set up a Home Access. Please contact the office if you need assistance.
Bus route information will be available on Home Access, no later than August 13th. Please make sure to check your child’s bus number and bus stop. Bus numbers and bus stops do sometimes change.
If you ordered a Supply Kit for your student, the kits will be in your child’s classroom on August 16th for pick up. Please note, you may receive specific directions from your child’s teacher with regard to supplies.
If you or your child have concerns with teasing, inappropriate comments or bullying please contact the classroom teacher or building administration so that we can immediately address the issue. Please know that we take these situations seriously. All students are valued members of our school community and should feel that the learning environment is safe and accepting.
There will be opportunities to connect with members of the Graham community before school begins on August 21.
