CMIT Elementary School North Won Best overall Elementary in the MESA Competition.
CMIT Elementary students had a great victory in their MESA Club competition. They won First place in Scratch, Storybook Theme Park Ride, and the Public Service Announcement competition. Scholars also took home second place in the bridge challenge. These scholars won overall BEST elementary school in Prince George’s county. They will proceed to the State competition. Go Tigers!

We have to thank all of our parent supporters. Especially Mr. Carpenter who helped students understand sketch up, gave ideas, and donated materials to our Story book theme park ride competition. Thank you to Ms. Ahmed for all your help with the bridge group. Thank you to Mrs. Ozturk and Mr. Tekin for coming out to our competition to support us. Thank you to Mrs. Asafo-Agyei for your constant support of our scholars. We are super excited about this win. We could not have done this without the support of our CMIT Family.

April is for Autism Awareness!
Hello Tiger's Den!

We have been having some wonderful conversations in our classrooms last week and this one, about what makes us different, unique and diverse!

From the way we think to the way we feel, we are exploring how "different" is "not less then", and in fact it makes for the richest of experiences!

I wanted to share with you all (singing) A Few of My Favorite Things!...

I use these great books to initiate important dialogue. Though they are written to target certain ages, I have found it quite simple to use them to challenge some of the thinking in our older grades, even if they are written for younger scholars.

"The Asperkid's" book is a great one to read alone, and then share and compare, or to keep private as a secret code book, as it is suggested.

There are great partnering TedTalks or Youtube lectures that support the topic as well!

As always, your continued conversations and exploration of these important topics, helps to grow our school community in all the right ways!
Never hesitate to reach out to me with ideas, suggestions, questions or curiosities; our partnership is another one of my favorite things :)




Graciously,
Your School Counselor
