Graham Latest News
On Tuesday, December 11th, P.D. Graham Elementary School hosted the annual 1st and 2nd Grade Holiday Concert under the direction of music teacher John Gonthier. The attendance for the concert was so outstanding, that the event is going to be moved to the gym at Stevenson Middle School next school year. Multiple students not involved with the concert showed up to help pass out programs and move all available chairs from the classroom into the gym. After all of the chairs had been moved, there was still barely enough room for standing room only. It speaks directly to the level of support for music education at P.D. Graham Elementary School.
Each grade sung a grand total of three songs and then came together on stage at the end of the concert to perform a joint choir singing of Jingle Bells. This was also an opportunity for audience participation. The performance was spectacular and the students should be very proud of what was accomplished.
