Welcome to our twenty-third Mavs Mindful Monday! These tips and tools will help you build a tool belt when you become stressed, or overwhelmed. We encourage you to check out the presentation as we conclude our Mindful Mondays for the year with a new series on perspective. This week’s presentation is on the "Impact of Your Perspective”. We look at how your perspective can not only change how you look at life, but change your life. We also talk about a growth mindset vs a fixed mindset and share some tips on how to change your perspective. We hope you enjoy.
Also, don’t forget we would love to hear how your experience with this week’s (or any other week’s) tip went. Feel free to fill out the challenge form on the last slide with a few quick questions and let us know about it.

Welcome to this week’s First Page Friday. On Fridays, Mrs. Beaman will feature a “taste” of a book the library has to offer. If you are interested in checking out the book you can stop by the library, or you can place it on hold in Destiny and we will deliver it to your classroom. Virtual students may also put the book on hold and we will leave it in the main office for you to pick up.
This week we will feature the book “Refugee” by: Alan Gratz. Alan Gratz is an awesome historical fiction author.
Josef- Berlin, Germany 1930s

Students and Parents/Guardians of Students in Virtual Classes:
Please see the information below regarding the final exam schedule for VIRTUAL students. VIRTUAL learners will take their exams by course rather than by class period. This schedule is designed to provide a clear testing window for our virtual learners, free from conflicts as many are double or triple blocked. By giving virtual students testing windows by course, we significantly reduce potential confusion and anxiety by removing the need for students to work out individual exam schedules with their teachers based on each student’s specific conflicts.
Below you will find the VIRTUAL testing schedules and some critical notes for EOC courses, AP Exams, and general procedures for VIRTUAL exams.

Students, Parents, and Guardians, please review the important information provided below regarding student attendance on the 100% attendance plan. This information will help to communicate and clarify the expectations set by the Greenville County School District and implemented here at Mauldin High. If you have specific questions after reading the information below, do not hesitate to reach out to our attendance team for clarification.
In-Person Students, Parents, and Guardians, please see the information below regarding End of Course (EOC) testing for the 2020-2021 school year.
State law mandates that students enrolled in Algebra 1, Biology, English 2, and a US History course must take a state-created End of Course (EOC) exam. Algebra 1, Biology, and US History are multiple-choice tests only. English 2 is a combination of a multiple-choice exam and a writing exam. Each exam for in-person students will be administered in their assigned classroom with their assigned teacher. To accommodate this testing, we will move to a block schedule effective May 17th.
Our 2020-2021 EOC testing window will open on Monday, May 17th. From May 17th - 21st, students enrolled in an English 2 class will complete the writing portion of their exam. From May 24th - 27th, all students enrolled in Algebra 1, Biology, English 2, and a US History course will complete the multiple-choice portion of their exams.
Please read the letter from Mr. Peake with vital information regarding the EOC exams and process.
Virtual Students, and Parents and Guardians of virtual learners, please see the information below regarding End of Course (EOC) testing for the 2020-2021 school year.
State law mandates that students enrolled in Algebra 1, Biology, English 2, and a US History course must take a state-created End of Course (EOC) exam. Algebra 1, Biology, and US History are multiple-choice tests only. English 2 is a combination of a multiple-choice exam and a writing exam. Virtual learners are required to take the EOC in person, on campus, using a school-issued device. To provide the best testing environment for virtual students, we will test by content area on specific days in the old gym with desks spaced according to social distancing guidelines.

*Pending passage of legislation
A bill requiring South Carolina school districts to offer the option of full-time, in-person instruction no later than Monday, April 26 regardless of the community’s COVID incidence rate is expected to pass the House on third reading today. Once approved, the resolution will go back to the Senate where quick passage is expected.
Greenville County Schools is preparing to meet the legal requirements of this mandate. With students on eLearning this Friday, we will remove all plexiglass at the high school level. Desks will be arranged in rows with at least 3 feet between each desk. This means that students will not be able to follow the social distancing guidance recommended for our current community incidence rate, but will be seated 3 feet apart without plexiglass.
It is important to note that this only impacts students who are already in our brick and mortar program or those who wanted to be in-person, but were placed in the Virtual Program due to a lack of space. High school families currently in our brick and mortar (traditional) attendance plan will have the option to attend school five days or to remain on the 75% attendance schedule, beginning Monday, April 26. Students who remain on the 75-percent plan should continue to participate in eLearning on their at-home days.

The student attendance schedules are changing to 75% attendance beginning January 19. New safety protocols have been put in place to ensure a safe learning environment. Students and parents should review these changes and expectations in the document shared below. A revised attendance schedule is also available below.
Beginning with the 2021-22 school year Mauldin High School and all GCS high schools will be transitioning to a block schedule. This change will not impact the courses we offer or your child’s opportunity to take non-core courses of interest to him or her. In a block schedule, students take four courses at a time, with each course lasting a semester instead of a full year. Class periods will increase from 50 minutes to 90 minutes long. There are pros and cons to every type of schedule, but block allows more time for hands-on engaging projects and requires the students to focus on just four subjects at a time. Additionally, there is an opportunity for schools to share resources, teachers will have a smaller student load each semester, and, with the opportunity to earn eight credits each year instead of seven, there is more room in student schedules to take advantage of electives, Career Center Courses, Fine Arts Center offerings, dual credit classes and other experiences that support Graduation Plus.
