Chess Club Sponsor Needed
Graham Park is looking for a Chess Club Sponsor.  If you have a knowledge of the game and are willing to teach students to love it, you might be the right person for the job.  The chess club meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month. Please contact Gary Anderson if you are interested.
Boxtops for Education and Labels for Education
Did you know there is a difference between Box tops and labels for education? It's true: they are completely separate BUT we collect both of them. Box tops go on the collection sheets and the labels for education go to Mrs. Ballam in the library. Thanks for helping our school by bringing both of these in!
