Dear Graham Families,


It was a great week here at Graham Elementary, with much to celebrate. In that same respect, I understand it is on the cusp of a 4 day weekend, so I will simply end my weekly message with a reminder to follow the Falcon Four this long weekend: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe, and Be Ready!


See you next week,

Ms. Walton

Back-Up MASK REMINDER

Please send your student to school with an additional mask, in case of breakage or contamination due to lunch, recess, and other physical activity. We are able to provide a limited number of replacement masks, but can not support large-scale daily replacements. We appreciate your support and understanding.

2021 Falcon Fundraiser!

The PTA's main fundraising event of the school year is well underway, with this year's theme is “It’s Great To Be At Graham” as we are celebrating Graham’s 25th Anniversary. ALL funds raised this year will go towards special events and activities planned by the PTA throughout THIS school year. We have many great prizes for our weekly raffle for those who donated $25 or more and 3 Grand Prizes for those who donated $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 the PTA meets the school wide goal of $6500, the students will get a special surprise!
