From the Principal
Hello Graham Family,
Thank you for your smiles and waves in the morning and during dismissal. You brighten up my day!
Parents and caregivers, please check into the office before walking through the building. If you would like to speak to a teacher, please make an appointment. We can't interrupt the teachers teaching for unplanned meetings.
Attendance is one of the major factors in a student's success. When a student misses class time it puts them behind. For students who are behind, I strongly recommend tutoring.
Parent and caregiver involvement in their student's school increases student performance. Please contact our PTO (parent teacher organization) to find out how to get involved.
I hope you are doing well. Don't forget to order your spirit wear! You can find the link in the newsletter below.
Our caregivers and students have been doing a great job with drop-offs and pick-ups.
- Arrival - Parents/Caregivers are expected to walk TK and Kindergarten students to the front door. Door to the school opens at 8:15 am.
- Breakfast - Starts at 8:15 am. Parents/Caregivers should pull to the very end of the lane along the school and drop their student off. There is a sign with an arrow pointing to the door.
- Any student who arrives late to school after 8:32 am must come to the front office door to sign in with an adult.
Thank you for working with our staff to help the morning and afternoon run smoothly!
I appreciate your positive attitude and commitment to the success of our students.

TK and Kindergarten caregivers MUST pick up their student at the main entrance.
Shirts are available in yellow or blue and they will be shipped to the school in time to wear them on Friday, October 14th during spiritweek.

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.
