Announcements

Concert December 9
For the first time in the history of this school, we will be able to show case the entire Upper School Music Department together.  80 Upper School musicians will be performing together in this fantastic opportunity.  This wonderful event will take place on Tuesday, December 9, at8:00PM, at the Tomie Ohtake Theater - one of the best concert halls of São Paulo.  Please plan to attend for a wonderful night of music.

MS Courtyards
There have been some incidents of people playing/tossing/kicking/throwing balls in the MS Courtyards recently.  Please note that there isn't enough space in these areas for those kinds of activities and in addition to that it causes noise while other students may be trying to get some before or 

DoSomething Food Drive
We are collecting non-perishable food items for the HS Club, DoSomething.  Please contribute to this drive to help those in need (and collect points for your House that will be added to Field Day).



Accelerated Math



Egg Drop
The annual Egg Drop for 7th Graders will happened last Thursday.  Congratulations to Lys K, Jack M., Brenna F., Caiua M., Laura S., Vicky H., Leo P. and Pedro F. for having eggs that did not break.

Lost Watch
A watch similar to the one below was lost last week in D3.  If you know anything about this, please let someone in the MS Office know.



PTA Thanksgiving Celebration on Saturday, 22 November  

The Thanksgiving Celebration at Graded is one of the great traditions at our school. In order to make it a success, we require students to volunteer to work in the cafeteria. The work shifts will be one and a half hours long beginning at 11:00 and ending at 15:30. If you volunteer, the price of the lunch ticket will be reduced to R$20.  This opportunity is only available to 8th grade students.

Please sign up here to participate in this wonderful community event (sign up until Nov. 20, on first come first serve basis).

If you require more information about the actual responsibilities please contact Mrs. Usha Singhi at uasinghi@yahoo.com
