Community Time 

Thursday- Student Led Conference Make-Ups (for some students)
Friday- Friday Activity (2nd to last one for this round)

Snack Bar Use
There have been students purchasing items from the Snack Bar Monday-Thursday even though it isn't open for MS students then.  If this continues, we will close the snack bar so that students aren't able to purchase items from the Snack Bar on Fridays either.  Please follow this policy for the sake of your fellow MS students.

Zombie Zoo
On November 7th begins the zombie apocalypse. The first step to surviving is rocking out at Zombie Zoo from 5:00-7:00pm at the student center. Zombie Zoo is a student led concert that serves as a fundraiser for community service activities at Graded. Tickets begin sales on October 21. If you buy a ticket on that first day, you get a special deal-only 10 R$ for a ticket! But don't worry, if you miss that opportunity. Tickets before the concert are 15 R$. If you buy a ticket within the first week of sales (Oct. 21-27) you can get a piece of gum with your ticket! Or if you miss that, the second week of sales comes with free popcorn if you download the Zombie Zoo App! (collect your popcorn at the snack bar during breaks). If all else fails, we only charge 20 R$ at the door.  If prizes, special deals, and epic music/ talents don't convince you, all the profit is used for community service. We hope to rock out with you at Zombie Zoo!
