Message from Mrs. Sheppard - Dear Graham Families,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mid-Winter Break! I am looking forward to seeing all of the staff and students back on Monday. Exciting News everyone! Construction has begun at Graham! You will notice that there is a fence up in the back of the school. This area will be fenced off so that they can start working on the new addition to our building which will be a brand new gymnasium, some new bathrooms and an office space. We are going to have to change our dismissal plans for the classes that are in the back of the building. Please refrain from walking in the back of the building. We are planning to dismiss those classrooms in a different way. I will be reaching out to those families to inform them of our new pick up process for the rest of the year. Please be patient as we work through the construction process.

Dear Graham Families,

Happy Friday!!

We have two really fun holidays coming up this week at Graham. Tuesday, February 13th is the 100th day of school! Our teachers plan lots of fun things to celebrate this milestone day at school. I always look forward to seeing all of the fun collection on 100 items that students bring in to share. We always get some really creative ones! We will also celebrate Valentine's Day this week on Wednesday. Our PTA is selling Candy Grams so please be sure those are filled out a returned to school by MONDAY!

This week in the Positivity Project we will talk about LOVE. Love means you value close relationships with others and being close to people. This is a PERFECT trait to talk about this week since we are celebrating Valentine's Day. Please read the parent letter to go along with this trait and see if you can find ways to work them into your daily conversations with your child.

Happy Friday!!

February is here and according to Punxatawney Phil, we will have an early spring! I hear he is only right 39% of the time so let's hope that is true. I could definitely use some sun!

Please remember that students should not be arriving to school before 8:45 am. There is no one outside to watch them before this time. We have also had several students being dropped off way to early for tutoring and other morning meetings. Tutoring in the morning does not begin until 8:00. Student council meetings usually start at 8:15 and Newspaper at 8:35.

Happy Friday!!

We have had a really crazy start to this half of the school year with all of our snow days! Hopefully we will be done with those but you never know. We still have two more months of winter!  Please be sure that you are sending winter gear with students each day to school. We do go outside in the winter time as long as the FEELS LIKE temperature is 20 degrees or above. Boots and snow pants are important for the playground. We try really hard not to call home if students get wet, but sometimes we have to.

Students are currently NWEA testing in all grade levels. We do this three times throughout the school year. It is important that they are here on a daily basis and that they charge up their chromebooks if they bring them home at night. We appreciate your help with this.

Message from Mrs. Sheppard - Dear Graham Families,

Thank you for being patient during our new morning drop off procedure. I know it's hard to make changes, but this way, we can let students inside when the weather is not so great. Once the weather gets better again, we will move back to lining up outside like we did before.

We are going to be switching to CLASSDOJO instead of Snap Connect. We have had some major issues with Snap Connect so this seems like a better route. Your child's teacher should have invited you to join their class by now. If they have not, please let me know! Sorry for the switch in the middle of the year.

Happy New Year!!!

I hope all of our students and their families were able to enjoy time together over the last two weeks and are ready to take on the New Year! It is hard to believe that we are already approaching the second half of the school year.

Starting January 8th, our morning line up will be a little different. We will be having the students line up INSIDE in the gym. There will only be a drop off spot for parents to pull up and drop off their student(s). Parents will not need to get out of their cars to let students out. You can pull up near the curb and students can get out there. They will line up in one of two lines by the gym doors. Doors to the gym will open at 9:00. Students should NOT arrive to school before 8:45 am so they are not waiting outside in the cold. Parents, PLEASE do not park in the drop off area. You must find a spot in the lot if you wish to stay until the doors open. Dismissal will remain the same for all students.

Dear Graham Families,

Well, we are finally here; our last week of school until the New Year!!! This week will be very busy with lots of fun celebrations going on. The Student Council is planning a fun Spirit Week, so hopefully your child can participate with us.

This week in the Positivity Project we will review several of the character traits. We have talked about Integrity, Other People's Mindset-Words and Actions, Bravery, Kindness and Self-Control. Please review these with your child this week and see if you can find ways to incorporate them in your daily conversations as reminders.

Thank you so much to all of our families that came out to Conferences this past week! It was wonderful to see all of you and talk to you about your children and their progress. If you still have concerns about anything, please feel free to reach out to me and I will be happy to talk to you.
