What's on the Docket # 35 ~ May 11 to May 17

GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS    

Spring MAP Testing for all 9th and 10th Grade students: Testing will begin this week during regular Social Studies, English and Math classes in their regular location. Students please ensure your laptops are fully charged and/or ensure you bring your chargers. Here is the link to the MAP testing schedule.

Yearbook sales @ R$150. Students and parents can find information on the Graded website and purchase the Yearbook at Livro Facil book store or online (http://www.graded.br/page.cfm?p=8746).

Healthy Living and Wellness: In an effort to spread nutritional awareness and help the Graded community develop healthy and balanced eating habits, Bea and Rafa (senior students) have made a Healthy Living & Wellness site!https://sites.google.com/site/healthylivingwellnessatgraded/home

Student Advisory Board elections will take place during the Class Meeting on Tuesday. Please ensure you have a pen or pencil with you.

Interested in joining The Talon? It is time to select next year's seniors, juniors, and sophomores who will lead The Talon through its 15th year. Are you curious? Do you like to write? Can you keep deadlines? Read and complete this application carefully on or before Friday, May 15, 16:00. (You will be evaluated in part by how well you follow directions.) In addition to the application, you must write one article (500-700 words) for possible publication in any of the site's sections (unless you are a current staff member), preferably the section in which you are most interested. If you are only interested in a non-writing position (layout, photographer, and artist), fill out the application and send us examples of your artwork (instead of an article). See the application for further information about the process. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask one of the current Editors-in-Chief (MC Otani or Paula Schulman) or the advisors (Mr. Berg or Ms. Pfeiffer). Key qualities of a successful candidate? A polished writer with original ideas who is interested in local, national, and international events, and who has initiative and meets deadlines.
