Dear Graham Families,

Welcome to the new 2018-2019 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 (only) 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.

Remember to turn in your Summer Reading Logs as soon as possible to earn your special prizes! “Reading Log, Reading Log, Reading Log…YES!”   

We will continue our implementation of PBIS (Positive Behavioral Intervention & Supports), a school-wide 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!

There are a few new faces at Graham. Let’s take the time to show them how happy we are to have them here by smiling, saying hello and introducing ourselves. You may now begin voting for our 4 open parent seats on School Site Council (SSC). Voting will also take place at Back to School Night through 9/13/18.

For everyone’s safety, all visitors must sign in with the main office, parents are not allowed inside of the cafeteria, nor may parents enter the student restrooms on campus. Please only park your vehicles in the appropriate areas.  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.

Respectfully,

Akilah Byrd

Principal
