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
