What's on the Docket # 34 ~ May 4 to May 10

GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS    

Yearbook Sales: for R$150. Students and parents can find that information in the Graded website and purchase it at Livro Facil. (http://www.graded.br/page.cfm?p=8746).

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.


Student Ambassadors: We are looking for 8 students from grade 8-10 to serve as ambassadors during the 2015-2016 school year. The application process is selective as we try to balance the personal qualities of individuals so that we build a strong, well rounded team. From individuals, we are looking for Reliability and Maturity. Our team criteria are: Ability to work as a group, commitment and availability (May 28, July 25 and January 19).
Please complete application (attached) due before May15.
