Open Committee Chair Positions:
We have open committee chair positions for next year, so if you have thought about stepping up or want to be more involved, now is the time! We’d love to have your help planning events and programs for our children. We are looking for chairs for the following:
*Back to School Lunch
*Staff Appreciation Week (2 people)
*Girls on the Run
You can email Kristin Kirchner at email@example.com with questions or to indicate what you would be interested in helping us out with.
Great Wolf Lodge Fundraiser:
The PTA announced a new fundraising opportunity this year with Great Wolf Lodge Gurnee, IL. I’m sure everyone will want to get out and have some fun once this is all over. Why not book a night, or even two?!? Each night booked gives 10% right back to Graham! Plus, you will get a discount of up to 30% on your room if you use code: 4MYSCHOOL and enter the qualifying ID number: 33656. They have extended our promo and it is good for qualifying stays thru December 31, 2020 and must be booked by October 30, 2020. An extra bonus, all guests age 15 and under will enjoy mini golf, bowling, the ropes course and climbing wall for FREE!!
Take care. We hope to see you soon!
