Dear Graham Families,


We are officially to our 10 day countdown! Today we kicked off the countdown for the last 10 days of school by holding our annual Field Day. It was wonderful to see so many students, staff, and volunteers enjoying the beautiful weather and getting to celebrate physical activity, sportsmanship, and time together.


This time of year is always one of my favorites, not because it's the end of school, but because it's a chance to watch the celebration and enjoyment of friendships formed over many school days. Look out below for some of the photos from field day and our retirement celebrations. And please be sure to review the themes for next week if you'd like to participate!


This week's News From The Nest is fairly short, as there are not a lot of new updates this time of year, but take a moment to briefly review them below, and spend the rest of your time enjoying this beautiful weekend.


Happy Friday!

Ms. Walton
