PTA Newsletter - 4/26/21
Hello Graham Families! Here is some information about what is coming up:
Boy’s Choice -
Thank you to everyone that participated in Boys Choice. For those of you that registered and were not able to complete the hunt, we will deliver all your favors to the school. For those students attending in person your child's teacher will pass them out. For those students that are remote they will be in the bin in front of the school.
We want to give Kristin Kirchner a big thank you for planning such a fun event! We also want to thank Dairy Queen owner Karen White (located at 2547 Plainfield Naperville Rd) for sponsoring the boys choice event. We hope you all enjoy your free cone!
Teacher Appreciation Week
This year’s “I Survived 2020-21” theme will help celebrate our amazing teachers who were able to do everything and roll with our ever changing year with a great week May 3-7th. I have attached a detailed agenda for our week. We will need your help to make it a success! PLEASE come up to school to Chalk the Walk on Saturday May 1st and Sunday May 2nd. Bring your own chalk and draw pictures and write messages to our teachers and staff. Thank you to everyone that signed up for Teacher Appreciation week donations!
