Wishing the Graham Community
a Very Happy Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is the time of year we pause to reflect. Although life is filled with many challenges, this is the time of year we express our gratitude for the many kind and generous people in our lives who support our students to achieve academic and social success. I am personally thankful for the students you share with us. What an awesome privilege and responsibility you have given to our Graham staff. I'm thankful for our remarkable staff members who give their unending time and wisdom preparing, teaching and mentoring your children. I'm thankful for all those who support our PTA, School Site Council, After-School Sports, Music, Clubs and so much more. I am thankful for CHAC, Just Read, Just Math, PAL, Mentor Tutoring Connection, NET Gain, Agilent and Access to Achievement Education Foundation for all the support they provide for our students. It does take a village to raise a child. Graham is such a unique school, and I'm thankful to have the opportunity to serve this marvelous community. Have a safe holiday. Enjoy your family time, relax and make many memories.
