Dear Graham Families,

It’s been a great first week back after Spring Break. We started off a bit sleepy, but we all got back into the groove very quickly. We’ve had some wonderful activities at Graham this week. The PTA sponsored Health and Nutrition Week starting on Monday. Our students enjoyed delicious red apples for a nutritious snack, exercised with a professional trainer, experienced a yoga session using Google Hangouts to broadcast the instructor and parents organized fun activities at recess. Thank you to our phenomenal PTA for planning this special week for the students. We also had Open House this week. It’s always an enjoyable time for our students to show off their hard work and their school.

Thank you for your support of the PARCC Testing as we continue to move through the testing process. Our 3rd graders will be completing testing next week, with make-up testing happening as necessary.

GRAHAM SCHOOL VOLUNTEERS:
The Volunteer Appreciation Tea will be April 21st at 2PM here at Graham School. Invitations were sent home today. Please save the date. We are looking forward to appreciating you.
