Involved parents are key to a successful school. Here are different ways you can help:
This is a regular school dance and does not require formal attire. You also do not need to have a date to get into the dance. Leadership wants to put on a dance similar to a Winter Ball you might attend in high school, but it is not especially formal.
All students participating must stay for the duration of the event. To keep our students safe, your child needs to arrive at 6 p.m. and leave at 8 p.m. Students will not be released from the dance until the event is over.
Mountain View High and Los Altos High each will be hosting an information night at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 29.
For families new to high school, it is a good opportunity to receive valuable information about what to expect next year.

Graham will be having its annual Incoming Sixth Grade Information Night on Tuesday, Feb. 3. If you have neighbors or friends whose children will be entering Graham in the fall, please encourage them to attend this informational meeting. Details to come.

Do You Have What It Takes
to Lead the Mouse Squad?
Looking for Parents With
Technology Skills to Share
Graham parents, do you have a technology skill that would be fun and useful to share with middle school students? Graham is looking for one or two volunteers to lead the Mouse Squad Club. The Mouse Squad meets once a week on Wednesday mornings, 8 to 9 a.m. The club has been run in a variety of ways, from creative coding for music or robotics to lessons in PowerPoint and digital art. If you are interested, please contact Joey Ordonez at firstname.lastname@example.org or Lisset Tellez at email@example.com.
We are hearing that some of you are struggling with the new mathematics standards and how you can help your students. Our mathematics coach will be hosting an event where she will explain some of the mathematical practices, vocabulary and strategies. Please mark your calendar for Feb. 26.
Tickets go on sale Jan. 31 for this wonderful event, to be held March 21. It is a wonderful time to share stories with other families and mingle with teachers and other staff members. We usually have a great turnout from our Graham staff.
MVEF is actively seeking volunteers who can contribute an hour, a day, or a couple of hours over a month to help make our 2015 Gala a fundraising success! Complete the volunteer form at www,mvef.org/index.php/about/volunteer or contact Gala Committee chairs Andrea Maes and Alyson Abrego at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how you can help.
Class T-shirts are $8 through the end of February. In March, T-shirt prices will go up to $10. If you don't have a class T-shirt, want an extra one or just want to get a bigger size for next year, now is a good time to buy one.
You can buy Graham Wear at the office or through the Graham PTA Online Store. For more information and to download order forms, visit the Graham Wear page.
Wearing a class T-shirt shows your Graham Spirit! If you are earning Block G Points by volunteering in the community, "represent" your school by wearing your Graham T-Shirt while you volunteer.
