Involved parents are key to a successful school. Here are different ways you can help:
There is still time to order yearbooks for the 2014-2015 school year, but time is running out quickly! The deadline to order the 2014-2015 yearbook with your name printed on the front is March 27. You won't want to miss out on the exciting InstaGraham theme and all of the memories that go along with it.
ALL currently enrolled kindergarten through seventh grade students are required to complete an ONLINE Student Intent Survey through InfoSnap. In the survey, you will notify the district if your student is returning or leaving the district for the 2015-2016 school year. The InfoSnap code (password) will be emailed to parents Monday, March 23. You must complete the Student Intent Survey by Friday, March 27, to reserve your spot for the 2015-'16 school year.
Parents, please make sure the school office has a working email on file for you. If you don't have a computer or need help completing the forms, now is the time to start looking for someone who can help you. Download the flier in English or in Español for additional information and help nights. More information about 2015-2016 enrollment is here.

|Graham's Second Annual Silent Auction is Sunday, April 26, at Graham's Spring Fling. The auction will raise money to support our teachers and students in the transition to the Common Core Standards, as well as tools and supplies for newly remodeled classrooms.|
|Parents, students and teachers can help in a variety of ways, including donating time soliciting and collecting donations; donating goods; donating services and talents; making a cash donation to the PTA; and participating and bidding. For more information or to donate, please contact the auction cochairs at firstname.lastname@example.org.|
State testing is just around the corner. We will be testing April 20 through May 1 in the mornings. It is really important that your child come to school on time. Also, please try not to schedule any appointments during this time; it is hard on students to be taken out of class to do make-up tests. Please encourage your child to eat a good breakfast each morning and bring a book to school to read, in case your child gets done early. Please try to have your child to school on time. Once a test starts, students will not be allowed to enter their testing rooms and will be asked to take the make-up exams.
If you are interested in finding more about the assessment, please check out this link: http://www.smarterbalanced.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/Smarter-Balanced-Parents-Factsheet.pdf
