A Bit About Us.....

The Graham PTA provides financial and volunteer support to Graham’s students and staff. Due to the COVID pandemic we expect teacher and staff needs will be unlike previous years and we will remain diligent in our financial support during these uncertain times. We hope PTA fundraising can address gaps with distance learning tools, student and staff wellness, technology enhancements, in addition to more traditional PTA funding requests, such as the annual $400 per teacher supply stipend. We encourage all Graham community members to join the PTA and participate in an open forum where parent, teacher and administration voices are all heard. The PTA keeps our Graham community strong!
