Kuk Sool Won™ is a system of Traditional Korean Martial Arts that incorporates all styles of martial arts historically taught in Korea into one systematic method of learning. Kuk Sool Won™’s foundation is built on proper etiquette and discipline. Students will learn how to effectively avoid conflict and only as a last resort how to properly defend themselves.

We practice every Tuesday at CMIT Highschool, and every Thursday at CMIT Elementary throughout the school year, working to develop a complete, Martial Artist. Members will be taken through the World Kuk Sool Won™ curriculum and attention will also be placed on academic achievement.

Next week for Reading we will be learning all about Abraham Lincoln. We will be on words with -ea embedded within.

For math, we will continue to study how to compare two digit numbers to see which is greater than, less than, or equal to.

For Social Studies, we will continue learn about famous African Americans in history! For science, we will be using the engineering design process to construct phones of the past for communication. We will be making our own phones with a partner to see what material works best and if our phones will work from a short distance.

Celebrating Black History
The third grade teachers were impressed and excited about the creativity displayed for the Black History Projects and Posters. Our scholars did an excellent job! Posters that were not selected for the CLF contest are on display in the cafeteria. We would like to thank you all for your support during this time, especially with our bulletin boards. We would also like to thank Mr. Mosley for visiting Ms. Tolbert's classroom and reading to the students!
In the upcoming week, students will continue working on geometry in Math and life cycles in Science. Students should continue to practice multiplication and division facts daily. In Language Arts, scholars will start reading the novel Lowji Discovers America and in Social Studies, scholars will continue discussing early explorers.
