8th Grade Graduation Party

Thank you to all the parents and staff that helped make our 8th grade grad party such a success. Students enjoyed music, a slide show, DJ, gaming tables, photo booths and wonderful food. A big thanks to Kim Bailey and Joleen Wilkening for leading the team of volunteers to transform our MUR into an elegant evening for our kids!!

Here is a thank-you letter from Kim and Joleen.

Principal's Message

Thank you for allowing Cindy and I the privilege of working with your students. Working and training young people to be successful is extremely rewarding.

Summer is a great time to be with family and have fun. Learning is a lifelong process, we are constantly learning every day. Take time to read with or along side your children this summer, explore new places, have your child pick something they want to learn about but was not covered in school or not covered in depth and have them do some research and share with you what they have learned. Encourage their curiosity!

Our Performing Arts’ students did a superb job representing Graham at the annual Forum Festival in Anaheim. While being ranked against national standards, the Wind Ensemble, Vocal Ensemble, Chamber Strings, and Dance Team all walked away with Gold rating. Congratulations to all our amazing performers under the direction of Jenni Gaderlund, Tim Cassell, Stephen Hyde and Erika Mueller. Thank you to all of the parents who volunteered behind the scenes to make this event possible.
