What's on the Docket # 29 - March 31 to April 6

GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS
·        Missing laptop: A Mac laptop was taken from the senior hallway last week that contains important IB school work. If you accidentally picked it up would you please return it to the high school office? We would also like to remind students to act responsibly and lock their important possessions in their lockers.

·        PROM Committee consisting of juniors and seniors was established to plan and organize the 2014 Prom for May 9. Interested students may still apply in writing to Mr. Fernandes. This activity may earn students CAS credit. Next meeting will take place on March 31 during lunch in the AP’s office.

·        Blood Drive: The Global Issues Network has organized a blood drive for students aged 16 and over, teachers and parents on April 1-3. Busses from Einstein will take those interested in participating in the program from school to the hospital after school and bring them back later in the afternoon. Be on the lookout for more information from Rafaela Sabó and Tamima Mourad.

·        High School Musical: "Cirque du Dionysus" An original written musical created by an amazing cast of Middle and High School performers.  The circus is in financial troubles and the whole troupe has to come together to figure out why.  This crazy cast of characters includes an absent minded magician, a Shakespearean clown, a love struck couple from different worlds, an anxious controller, a crazy cat trainer and many more. Performances in the BBT Friday @ 3:30 and 7:30, Friday @ 4 pm, and Saturday @ 4pm.  Come and sing along with some of our favorite Broadway music!

·        Taylor Mali  - On His Way to Graded: You heard before that he was scheduled, and now the weekend of his arrival is just in front of us. Taylor Mali, performance poet from NYC will be at Graded all next week. Not sure who he is? See his website and go to You Tube for some of his videos. He will present at the High School assembly on Tuesday, April 1 to kick off Poetry Month, and will work in grade 9 & 10 classrooms throughout the week. Follow and contribute to the Twitter feed  #TaylorMaliGraded
