Important School Information

Attention TGS Families

Thank you so much for all of your hard work in support of students this year. As we welcome some cooler weather and get excited for the last few months of 2022, we have a few important announcements for you.

  1. The end of Quarter 1 was October 13th. Grade cards will be mailed home this week. Please check PowerSchool and Schoology at any time for more detailed and up to date information about your student’s grades.
  2. Students in all grades will be taking the PSAT or SAT during the last full week of October.
  3. On October 25th, 10th and 11th grade students will take the PSAT. Students in 9th and 12th grade should stay home.
  4. On October 27th, 9th grade students will take the PSAT and 12th grade students will take the SAT. Students in 10th and 11th grade should stay home.
  5. If you are not certain which of these dates your student should attend, please contact the front desk for clarification.
  6. Fall Student-Led Conferences will be scheduled October 25th through 27th. Our goal is for all students to have an SLC attended by a family member. We would love to meet in person but we can also have meetings online or over the phone if necessary. Please keep an eye out for an email inviting you to schedule a specific time for your conference.

Thank you,

The Graham School Administration

Would your family benefit from a Thanksgiving Box?

The Graham School has partnered with a local church to provide families with Thanksgiving boxes. Boxes will include all the traditional sides plus a $20 Kroger/Giant Eagle gift card for the protein of choice. Each box would serve 8-10 people.

EL Education

Our partnership with EL Education empowers our teachers to unleash the potential of their students. EL Education is built on ten design principles that reflect the educational values and beliefs of Kurt Hahn, founder of Outward Bound and EL Education. These principles also reflect the design's connection to other related thinking about teaching, learning , and the culture of schools. The Graham School's habits of learning have grown out of the design principles: Self-Direction, Perseverance, Teamwork & Collaboration, Service & Stewardship, and Adventure & Risk.

Title 1

TGS is a School-wide Title 1 program, enabling us to receive Federal Funds to ensure that our students receive the support they need to reach and exceed grade level goals in reading and math. We welcome parent involvement in planning, review and improvement of Title 1 programs. Please contact Debbie Addison at addison.2@thegrahamschool.org with any questions. Click here for the Parent Pact.

RESIDENCY VERIFICATION NOTIFICATION

Per House Bill 21 community schools are required to perform a monthly review of student files and randomly select families for residency verification. Please contact the school immediately in case of an address change. Proof of residency must be submitted within two weeks of an address change. If evidence is not provided, requests for additional documentation or a home visit may occur.
