“My first memory of Graland is the big sandstone home on Pennsylvania Street. . . a sunny, big room on the second floor. . . It is quite natural that the teacher I recall most dearly is the first art teacher, Mrs. Tee, my mother.” Joanna Tee Beadle

“Among my happiest memories is the effort we put into a production of Quality Street, working with Miss Matlack, also the marionette show we did for the Children’s Hospital Street Fair.” Anne O’Neil Dauer

“ I was a seventh grade Japanese student. . . I could speak English so little, but I did not feel lonely because my new American friends treated me so kindly. . . When I pronounced in the wrong way, they corrected me again and again until I could do it. . . I wish I could be at Graland once more.” Midori Ishizaka

“My beloved Graland was my launching pad for life. . . Today, I know how to love and enjoy life because of . . . these formative years. . . I have the fondest memories of those skillful educators who encouraged experiential living, through. . . Greek dramas, square dances, rhythm, Field Day, operettas, assemblies, making teepees and igloos, shop, gym. I still can’t believe I marched my father’s medical school skeleton off to class for a pirate play. . . Graland produced an atmosphere of academic excitement where we could explore, investigate, and evaluate, rather than merely accept.” Pitsy Sawyer Teets
