PTA Newsletter - 5/3/21

Reported by on 5/3/21

Hello Graham Families! Here is some information about what is coming up:

Teacher Appreciation Week is This Week!

Thank you to everyone that came up to school to Chalk the Walk over the weekend! I am sure the teachers loved seeing all the messages and pictures as they arrived at school. Don’t forget to have your child give their teachers notes or cards of thanks this Friday. Also, thanks to everyone that signed up for Teacher Appreciation week donations! If you still have not dropped off your donations please drop off all your donated items to Tracie Skindzier in River Run at 1755 Baybrook Lane or Kelly Moscickis at 5060 Switch Grass Ln in High Meadow ASAP

School Kits:
We will again be offering the opportunity for you to purchase your child’s school supplies through The Write Stuff. Through The Write Stuff, you can order everything your child will need from one place and have it directly shipped to the school and distributed to your child’s classroom to be waiting for them in the fall. The link to order will be available in next week’s newsletter.

Fifth Grade Farewell

Thank you for your help submitting Crone T-shirt sizing and placing your sign orders! Signs will be delivered the week of May 10 to your home. The PTA is also looking forward to celebrating the class of 2021 on Friday, May 28th.
