Fundraising for Nepal (from Anna Farnes):
Dear students, teachers and people of Graded,

Next Wednesday, May 27th, we will have a bake sale during lunch. We are raising money to be able to help the people in Nepal after the horrible earthquake that took place not too long ago. We would really like to see you there, and any amount of money will definitely help. I know that many people will be forever grateful for your help. Thank you so much! Hope to see you there! 

Thank you - Anna Farnes

The US Library will be closed at the end of the school day on June 11.  Please have all of your library needs taken care of before then.

Maracujá Day
Just a reminder that this Wednesday during lunch our 4th graders will be having their Maracujá Day.  As a courtesy to their celebration, we are going to stay off of the field at that time.  Thanks in advance for your cooperation on this.
