What's on the Docket #23 ~ February 9 to February 22

GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS    

PE Classes on Monday: Wendy Jehlen, artistic director of Anikaya, will be conducting movement workshops with PE students. Please be prompt. Wendy is currently in São Paulo working on a collaborative cross-cultural project called Run (Like a Girl). They will be performing at CRDSP on the 13th. 

Course Selection: As you know it's time to start thinking about the courses that you will take next year. We want to provide you with two important links that you'll need to be able to complete the process. You can find version 4 of the 2015-16 Course Catalog on our website. We have made a few revisions since we sent it out last week so please make sure that you have the latest version. Also, when you are ready to select your classes you can do so through the community login portal. Please see your counselor if you have any questions. Remember that the deadline is March 16th.


English Help Center: Need help writing or editing an essay? Seniors Paula Schulman and Mike Thomas are offering an English help center for peer editing and writing assistance after school every Tuesday and Thursday in the Writing Center (B26)

Cancer Shelter – Hair Donations: We are trying to promote hair donation in school and would love if each of you could help. We will have a box placed at the office permanently and if you ever decide to cut 20 cm of hair you can bring it tied inside a zip-lock bag with your address written on it and we, from the Cancer Shelter, will send it to the institution. Once they receive your hair a certificate will be available online for you to print. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask Letícia Guimarães or Maria Isabel and visit the site: www.cabelegria.com.br

AC in the A wing: In the spirit of sustainability and conservation please ensure windows and doors are kept closed if the AC is being used, and turn off the AC at the end of the day.

Math League Contest on Thursday, Feb 12 during lunch/flex.

ALUNOS DO DIPLOMA BRASILEIRO: O professor Marcello Bulgarelli está dando orientação em redação. Se você tem um bloco livre ou durante um flex/after school, agende um horário com ele, na sala B 29,  ou escreva para:marcello.bulgarelli@graded.br

Class of 2015 Cap and Gown photo during FLEX on February 10th in the Gym. We will also be organizing the lineup for Graduation. Please be prompt.

SAT Club: This club will provide students with the opportunity to practice full SAT tests( 3 hour 20 min long), where the tests will be corrected and students will receive their predicted SAT score. Through receiving their predicted scores students will be able to work on specific sections of the SAT and become familiar with the format of the SAT test. This club will be open to freshmen and sophomores who want to get a head start on SAT and juniors and seniors who wish to see where they stand, get the highest possible scores in the SAT. For more info speak to Luiza Valim or Ritvika Sharma

The American Math Contest will take place on February 25 at 14:45. Interested students should speak to their Math teachers or sign up HERE
