Dear Graham Falcons,


Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! Although I hope to convey this sentiment often, it's nice to have a dedicated time period to express just how continuously impressed I am with the time and energy our teachers and support staff put into making sure all students at Graham Elementary are successful in anything they pursue. I am grateful that we can say with certainty that we have an incredibly talented group of educators who want nothing but the best for our students and families. Thank you for everything each of you do to make our nest the best!


In the same vein, I'd like to thank our PTA for what was an amazing array of goodies and celebrations this week. The community support we have here is unmatched, and we can't thank you and the leadership team enough for all the wonderful ways the PTA kept both our hearts and stomachs full this week.


Please enjoy this weekend, and we'll see you back here on Monday ready to continue finishing our school year strong!


Sincerely,

Ms. Walton

If you choose to provide input, please submit this form by Monday, May 16th. Please remember that we cannot honor teacher requests or consider social factors, such as, the amount of friends the child will have in the new class or in which classroom the child’s best friend is placed.
