PTA Newsletter 5/24/21
Hello Graham Families! We hope everyone enjoyed our outdoor field day event last Friday. A big thank you to Michelle Kapinus for putting on such a fun day for our kids!
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 by the start of school in the fall. Please use this link www.write-stuff.com/storefront/school/grahames to place your order by June 21.
New this year, you can purchase the entire grade level kit or remove items from the list if the item is not needed. We know there may be extra supplies from this year that can be used.
End of Year Teacher Thank You Information
For end of year gifts for Teachers and Staff we will be utilizing a site called GiftCrowd.com. This is the same site we used for Holiday Gifts. The Graham End of Year Thank You page will list all teachers and staff at Graham. If you choose to participate you are able to click on any of your child’s teachers or staff member’s name and leave them a donation and personalized card. When the donation time is over, the last day of school June 4th, the gift receiver is notified of the gift. They will see all the greetings and messages that were left for them and they can decide what electronic gift card they want the collected amount deposited on. Be on the lookout for the link to be sent out in a separate email this week!
Graham has 2 teachers that will be retiring this year! Annette Leong, 2nd Grade, Kathy Muno, Music. The PTA has purchased a gift for each of them on behalf of Graham families. Please include them in your thank you messages and well wishes. We will miss them!
