This is the last week to turn in your money for the fundraiser! Remember to send in your money to be entered to win many fantastic weekly raffle prizes (and three grand prizes for donations of $100 or more!) The fundraiser will culminate on 9/17 (rain date 9/20) with students participating in fun and games outdoors on the Graham school grounds, and if we meet our school wide goal of $6500, the students will get a special surprise!
