What's on the Docket # 26 ~ March 9 to March 15

GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS    
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.

Doodle Week sponsored by the Yearbook Staff: "Dear students, when you find a blank poster in your hallway, feel free to doodle and draw to become a part of our publication!"

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 16. Here is the link to the Strings Program at Graded which we could not present at the “Shopping for Electives” assembly due to technical difficulties.


The Internet of Things World Forum for 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

Career Panels: This year, in conjunction with Graded’s Development and Alumni Office, the Counselling Office will be running four sessions of Career Panels during Flex periods. Session 1 on March 17 will feature Banking, Business and Gastronomy panels. Session 2 on March 24 will feature Medicine and Fashion Design. Session 3 on April 7 will feature Actors, Artists, Directors, Composers, Musicians and Engineers. Session 4 on May 14 will feature Software and Law.
