From the Principal

Dear Graham Families:


Thank you to all of the families that attended Kindergarten Round up Wednesday night. We look forward to having new Graham Stars!


I would like to thank members of the Oakland University men's and women's swim team for taking time out of their busy schedules to come to Graham and read to our classes. Our students enjoyed having you. We look forward to your future visits.


Our 5th grade classes have teamed up with United Shore Professional Baseball League Reading Program. Each class has their own set of goals. Students must turn in 4 reading logs and will have the opportunity to earn tickets to a baseball game this summer. The USPBL Reading Program is a fun way to encourage reading development in students. Sounds like a home run to me!


Graham will be hosting the Board of Education meeting on Monday March 16, at 7pm in the media center. Please feel free to come and join in the discussions.





Remember, it takes a village, to raise our children.


Sincerely,


Tony O. Harris
