All About C.T.A.E. at C.A. Gray

Avoiding Plagiarism!

Plagiarism refers to a form of cheating that has been defined as
“the false assumption of authorship: the wrongful act of taking the product of
another person’s mind, and presenting it as one’s own” (Alexander Lindley,
Plagiarism and Originality (New York: Harper,1952]2). To use another person’s
ideas or expressions in your writing without acknowledging the source is to
plagiarize. Plagiarism, then, constitutes intellectual theft and often carries severe
penalties, ranging from failure in a course to expulsion from school….

At all times during during research and writing, guard against the
possibility of inadvertent plagiarism by keeping careful notes that
distinguish between your musings and thoughts and the material you
gather from others. A writer who fails to give appropriate
acknowledgment when repeating another’s wording or particularly apt
term, paraphrasing another’s argument, or presenting another’s
line of thinking is guilty of plagiarism. You may certainly use other
person’s words and thoughts in your research paper, but the borrowed
material must not appear to be your creation.
– MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (26)

*Student work containing or consisting largely of plagiarism will be assigned no credit until redone and resubmitted within the given timeframe for late work.

Visioning Project

"We need to convince kids that 'smart' is cool."

Welcome! Use controls in bottom-right corner to scroll news.
"Dress Smart, Think Smart" Campaign - 12.1.16

Mrs. Cathy Nobles (left) hands out sweet tea to students. 

C.A. Gray kicked off the "Dress Smart, Think Smart" Campaign this year. Students are asked to dress up every third Wednesday to receive a free cup of sweet iced tea. The "Dress Smart, Think Smart" Campaign falls under the umbrella of the "Choose to Work Smart" theme that was implemented by C.A. Gray's Principal, Mr. Fred Smith, two years ago.

The purpose of the "Dress Smart, Think Smart" Campaign is to challenge students to think smarter both in and outside of the classroom. The idea begins with students’ outer appearance. Ninth grade Guidance Counselor Mrs. Cathy Nobles said, “Students who dress well, test well! It changes their mindset, and makes them feel empowered and intelligent. Dressing up also encourages students to behave and respond in a more positive way towards themselves and others, improving self-esteem and character."
