Remembering Reagan.....

On Tuesday, December 4, 2013, the students, faculty, and staff of Graham Elementary remembered Reagan by releasing pink balloons in her memory. Reagan was a 6th grade student at Graham Elementary that we lost to a battle with cancer. Reagan fought cancer with grace and strength and we were all better for knowing her. We will always love, remember, and miss Reagan.

  • Be A Champion Reader
    • The Alabama Education Association believes reading is a child's key to success in school an life. That's why AEA is emphasizing reading through its Be a Champion reader contest. Entering your child is simple! Have your child read six books on their reading level to qualify as a "Champion Reader". Complete the book list and return to Mrs. Peters in the library. Mrs. Peters will drop an entry card in the mail to qualify your child for the drawing to win Alabama vs. Auburn tickets!!
  • School Wide T-Shirts
    • PTO is selling t-shirts for $10.00 so that students will have shirts to wear on field trips, field day, and any other special events. The profits from this shirt sale will help PTO provide more services to our children.
  • PTO Membership Drive
