From the Principal
Dear Graham Families:
We do not have school on Monday, January 17th, in honor of Martin Luther King Jr..
One of my favorite quotes from MLK is :
“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”
This quote seems to speak to all of us during this lengthy pandemic. I hope you all enjoy the long weekend.
There have been changes to the Covid-19 guidlines. A letter from Dr. Schwarz went out to all Avondale families - please make sure you read the new guidlines.
Remember, it takes a village to raise our children.

Library News from Mrs. Cuthbertson
Library the Book Challenge For January
Who will create the Best Snowman? Will it be you?
Your job is to read a book, and then make a snowman that represents a character
in the book. Things you can use to make your snowman are crayons, markers, or
any art supplies that you have. When you are done return the Snowman that you
have created to the library by January 24th. We will use the snowmen to
decorate our school library. Make sure fill out the top so I can send them home
when we take them down with a new book mark.

Parent Pick up
In order for the parent pick-up line to run as safely and efficiently as possible, we ask that you please stay in your car and move down to the furthest possible spot to pick-up your child. This will allow for the maximum amount of cars to pick up at the same time and will help for a smooth, quick transition. Staff is on hand to help direct traffic and keep the students safe. Please be respectful and look to them for direction.
If you need to get out of your car to assist your child or if you would like to meet them at the door, please park in the parking lot, cross at the crosswalk and meet them on the sidewalk.
Thank you for your understanding. Your assistance is greatly appreciated!
Substitute Teachers Needed!
Happy Birthday Graham Stars!
Parents, if you could send in a backup mask or two in your child's backpack, that would be helpful. We have a lot of incidents where the masks get dirty or the strings break. Thank you!

Change to Pick up Schedule
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.
