From the Principal
Hello Graham Family,
Please join me on Wednesday, March 22nd for Coffee with the Principal from 8:45- 9:45 am in the cafeteria. I am looking forward to speaking with everyone!
If your child has not taken advantage of our morning clubs or our afternoon tutoring, please join us! We have Zumba, Yoga, Mindfulness and Games in the mornings. The students are really enjoying these clubs and have shown an improvement in attendence and motivation in the morning!
Our after school tutoring is a excellent opportunity for your student to improve their reading and math. Our clubs are free to Graham students!
Have a wonderful weekend!

MARCH IS READING MONTH!
HELPFUL TIPS FOR AWESOME ATTENDANCE:
Remind your child that school is their first and most important job! Tardies, late arrivals, and early release times matter!
Communicate the importance of regular school attendance to your child so they are hearing the same thing we are saying at school.
We have many students who have been picked up early on multiple occasions. Important learning, including many intervention times, occur the last hour of school. Please be aware that when a child is picked up before 2:40 pm, he/she is considered absent for the afternoon. Any time a student is picked up between 2:40 pm and dismissal, it is considered an early withdrawal.
We are taking attendance very seriously because every minute missed, is a missed opportunity to learn.
8:33 am-9:30 am - Tardy
9:31am-11:45 am - Absent in AM
11:46am-2:40 pm - Absent in PM
2:41 pm-3:39 pm - Early Withdrawal

Medication must be kept in the office. Students must have documentation signed by a doctor on file in order for medication to be administered at school. Over the counter medication cannot be administered to students without a note from a doctor as well.
If your child is sick (fever, vomiting, covid-symptoms), please do not send them to school. We diligently try to prevent the spread of illness. If your child goes home from school sick with a fever (100+), they must be fever-free without fever-reducing medicine for 24 hours before returning to school. This standard is set by the Oakland County Health department.
If your student tests positive for Covid, please contact our Health Department Nurse Lourdes Lopez at 947-235-1067 for further guidance.
