What's on the Docket # 24 ~ February 23 to March 1

GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS    

Grade 11 BrSS Trip, Jazz Festival and Knowledge Bowl Planned Absence forms due in the HS office during FLEX on Monday 23 February

Photo Re-Takes and New Students/Faculty: Bernard Moss (photographer) will be on campus on Tuesday (24 Feb) in the entrance of the Auditorium to do photo re-takes as well as photos of new students and new faculty.

Graded Jazz Festival (Feb 26-28):  is a special event that Graded has hosted for the past 13 years; we bring in professional jazz educators from the US and utilize widely acclaimed local jazz players to work closely with our students (this year, with international school students from Quito, Brasilia, and Caracas) teaching them the finer aspects of playing their instruments and understanding the jazz idiom. It is an incredible experience, and it is open to all qualified Graded music students. Students who would like to participate see Mr. Stange.

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.

Grading and Reporting in the High School: Mr. Peterson has written number of articles that have been published in The Graded Gazette addressing the changes Graded has been making in the way we grade and report. Here is the link to those articles: 1. What Do We Know About Re-assessments; 2. Tracking Changes in Grading and Reporting; and 3. Next Steps.


Graded’s Start-up, Stay-up (March 5-7) will be a student-led conference where students come together to work day and night for three days to create, design, and pitch a social entrepreneurship project to a panel of experts. Conference participants will register individually, or in small groups of up to three students, with an idea or framework for a social start-up that meets a need in their community. Student groups will work with mentors and consultants to develop their start-ups.
Students will have plenty of time to work on their projects throughout the three days. One exciting feature to the conference will be that students have the opportunity to spend the night at Graded. We will provide space in our library for people to sleep. Graded will provide food, as well as chaperones, for the overnight stay. It will be a fun time to bond with all of the students who will be participating in the conference.
A recent addition to our schedule is Mara Mourão (Director of the film Who Cares?) who will participate in a Q&A session with the student groups after a viewing of the movie. This is an exciting addition to an already dynamic schedule we have in store for the participants. Students can register here.

The IoT World Forum Young Women’s Innovation Grand Challenge is a global innovation challenge open to young women between the ages of 13-18. The aim of the challenge is to recognize, promote, and reward young innovators as they come up with new uses for Internet of Things technologies. The competition is completely free and fully online. The deadline to apply is March 25th. First place winners receive $20.000 USD (which is approximately 56.000 BRL). For more information go to http://iotchallenge-cisco.younoodle.com/about-the-challenge/ or see Mr. Fernandes

Snack Bar Survey: After one semester of Paneria offering service to Graded we are conducting a customer satisfaction survey in order to ascertain needs and obtain recommendations to improve their service. Please take five minutes to complete the survey which closes on February 28 at noon.

REMINDER OF THE WEEK
Work Assigned During School-Related Absences

The form is to be completed at least 48 hours before departure.  The assistant principal, activities director, athletic director, community service coordinator and director of the arts program will oversee the process in coordination with coaches, advisers and teachers.
