Welcome ToGraham Elementary
Always My Best and Nothing less!
The students, staff and parents of P.D. Graham Elementary School work together to create a caring, cooperative learning atmosphere, which will produce a responsible, lifelong learner.
Message from Mrs. Sheppard - Dear Graham Families,
I hope everyone was able to enjoy the weekend.
Reading month has begun! Our theme this year is "Reading Makes My Heart Sing!" We have been having so much fun with our reading month theme this year. It has been really fun dressing up for the different decades. I hope you will all join in this week for the BEST decade....the 80's!!!! Come to school on Wednesday the 15th with your neon, big bows, lace gloves, parachute pants, and big hair!!!
Thank you so much to those parents that are following our drop-off procedures. I feel like this week we have seen an improvement with the drop-off lane and people moving along after they let their students out to line up. Adults will not be outside until 8:45 to supervise students. Students should not be dropped off earlier than that. What we have noticed lately is during PICK-UP time, there are SEVERAL cars blocking the buses in the front loop. Please remember that the front loop is for buses and staff only. Please park in the parking lot or on John Hix Street and walk over to pick up your kindergartener. Lastly, please be KIND to others!! School parking lots can be very stressful but if we use patience and kindness AND follow procedures, things will work out much better for everyone.
This week in the Positivity Project our school community will be focusing on the character strength of OPM: Identifying and Appreciating the Good in Others. Here is the parent letter that goes with this trait so that you can discuss it with your child.
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me.
