Dear Graham Families,
Welcome to the new 2019-2020 school year and a special welcome to all of our new families! We are again looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our students achieve at their highest potential. Please join us outside on Monday mornings for the “Monday Morning Minute.” During this time we’ll hold a special drawing for students who have earned a “Pawsitive Praise Ticket” for being respectful, responsible or safe.
We will continue our implementation of PBIS (Positive Behavioral Intervention & Supports), a schoolwide approach to make schools safe & promote positive behavior. The focus of PBIS is prevention, not punishment. It is a way for Graham to encourage good behavior. All students learn about behavior, just like any other subject, and they follow the same rules. Remind your student that “Pawsitive Praise” tickets do not expire, therefore, students are able to use their tickets from last year!
Remember to turn in your Summer Reading Logs by August 30th to earn your special prize! “Reading Log, Reading Log, Reading Log…YES!”
I am excited to announce that Graham was selected as a winner of the Safe Places to Play mini-pitch last school year and we are currently receiving a new state-of-the-art soccer field for our school! You can learn more about it here: https://ussoccerfoundation.org/programs/safe-places-to-play
NUSD has also provided Graham with new play structures too!
We currently have a Water Bottle Filling Station Campaign! Our goal is to raise $1,750 online to promote the reuse of water bottles vs. throwing away disposable bottles, thus contributing more trash to our landfills. Our students learn about taking care of our environment and their bodies. We have $566 donated thus far. Please consider sharing our link with friends and family: https://www.tapwaterwatch.com/campaigns/graham-elementary-school/
For everyone’s safety, all visitors must sign in with the main office. As always, please be patient and safe as you travel through the community. In helping the environment, walk or bike to school. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation and patience as we ensure that all our students have a safe and successful school year.
