Author & illustrator visit!
A big THANK YOU to our own Graebner Parent-Teacher organization who have helped us afford our annual author visit this year.
On Wednesday, March 28, 2018, husband and wife team, Karen and Darrin, author/illustrator team will be visiting our Graebner students. Besides their best-selling kids' books, they have done work for Disney, Hasbro, and Universal - plus voices on computer games.
They have performed comedy for 20 years, have done radio, television commercials and have written and illustrated two best-selling children's book series: Mick Morris Myth Solver, Ghost Board Posse, plus their Sketch the Myths sketchbook and the new Monsters First Day at School picture book.
Darrin will show the children how he designs all of his creatures and discuss doing art and book covers. And, talk about working in radio, how to do voice impersonations and working in the arts.
Karen is going to share what it is like to be an author, how to write books, where ideas come from, the importance of reading, plus inspire students to follow their dreams!

Many parents have asked me about using the Typing program Type to Learn at home with their children. Below you will find the directions for installing this program at home. Your child must know their school username and password to be able to log in. Currently, we use Type to Learn with 3rd through 6th grade students.
Graebner students participate in hour of code!
Graebner is once again participating in the Cartridges for Kids program. Cartridges for Kids is a free electronic recycling program that provides year-round funding opportunities for our school.
You are welcome to drop off any of the approved items to the Graebner Media Center at any time. CFK collects cell phones, laptops, laser cartridges, MP3s & iPods, tablets/eReaders/notebooks, etc. You can view a complete list of accepted items below.
If you are a business, I would be happy to make arrangements to pick up your cartridges if you wish.
We have some sad news. In the past few years participation in Labels for Education has declined and as a result, Campbell has come to the very difficult decision to wind down the LFE program. Thus, we will no longer be collecting Labels for Education at Graebner.
