TEDxYouth

Are you passionate about a particular topic? Do you have ideas you want to share on an internationally recognized platform? If so, TEDxYouth@AnnArbor invites you to come and audition to speak at the 2016 TEDxYouth@AnnArbor event. To audition, simply prepare a 5-8 minute speech and a 200-250 word paragraph about your idea. Don’t worry: you do not have to have your talk polished! All we are looking for is good ideas and confidence. If you are interested in either giving a talk or hosting the event, go to the speakers tab at bit.ly/tedxya2 and fill out the form posted. Submissions are due by 12:00 pm on December 6th. We hope to see you there!

 

Trimester 2 schedules

Attention All Students- Please make sure to review your trimester 2 schedule in powerschool this week. If you have a concern or need an adjustment to your schedule for one of the approved reasons only, all counselors will be available during both lunch periods to discuss Monday, November 16th - Friday, November 20th.

Schedules will only be changed for the approved reasons. The approved reasons for a schedule change are:

  1. Hole in your schedule (Example: There is a blank space where 4th hour should be)
  2. Level change (Example: you have Geometry AC and you need regular Geometry)
  3. Double scheduled ( Example: 2 identical classes are listed different hours OR 2 different classes are listed during 1 hour)
  4. Repeat class (Example: Health is listed but you took Health last trimester)
  5. Missing a graduation requirement class (Example: US History A is not listed and it wasn’t listed Trimester 1 either)
  6. Missing part of an elective (Example: Choir is not on the schedule and it is a 3 term course OR the magnet class is not listed)

Final trimester 2 schedules will be distributed in your 3rd hour study period on Tuesday, November 24th.
