PTA Celebration of the World (COTW) is right around the corner, on April 26, and we are in need of High School students to make this year’s COTW the best event ever.  High School volunteers have always been the key part of the PTA event success and we are counting on your support again.  Here is the link to the SIGN UP FORM – CAS credit may be obtained from participation in this event.

This year, The PTA has created a special Volunteer Raffle Basket worth approx. R$500.00.   Every volunteer will receive a raffle ticket making them eligible to win this basket.  The basket contains: ITunes, Starbucks and Outback gift cards as well as American candies and other great items.  Every volunteer will also receive a ticket for ice cream and drinks.

Please do not forget to purchase your event tickets in advance as the tickets have been sold out early in previous COTW.  For those of you, who have volunteered in the past, THANK YOU, and thank you to those volunteering for COTW for the first time in 2014.

Join the Graded Mentoring and Tutoring Program:  If you are interested contact Keren Soriano or Nick Mariani (GMT faculty advisors) or contact Sammi Gistren, Paula Schulman, Fernanda Fiszner (11th Grade students).

A Request from the Global Issues Network: As you know the Graded Global Issues Network (GIN) is working on campus to address twenty of the most pressing problems facing humanity. As a result, they have implemented several initiatives to raise environmental awareness. In prior years, we have greatly reduced the use of plastic and we have implemented water conservation programs.

Now, in an effort to reduce Graded's contribution to air pollution, the GIN group is asking all families to help on a daily basis by turning off engines while waiting in cars. We are asking drivers to cooperate with our efforts to improve air quality by refraining from running the motors while waiting in school parking lots or while lined up on the street waiting to enter campus. We greatly appreciate your assistance with this initiative. Shutting off motors of parked cars will save you fuel, reduce your child's exposure to harmful exhaust, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
