CMIT North's Temporary Website - www.cmitnorth.com
Our normal website domain name, cmitacademy.org, is having issues and CLF IT Department is working to resolve the problem as soon as possible.

We temporarily set up a new website - www.cmitnorth.com - so that communication can resume at cmitnorth.com. New staff email addresses have been created with the domain name cmitnorth.com. The email addresses for the staff are the same as before except the extension which is @cmitnorth.com, as an example, secretary@cmitnorth.com

Until we resolve the problem please send your emails to the cmitnorth.com email addresses.

New Sibling Preference Applications Process

Prince George's County Public Schools gives lottery preference to new students who already have a sibling in the school. Siblings must live in the same household, have the same responsible parent/guardian, and both siblings must be enrolled at Chesapeake Math and IT North for the 2016-2017 school year, grades 6-12. Families must submit a valid lottery application by the deadline to be eligible for sibling preference.

NEW THIS YEAR: All applications for sibling preference will be accepted during the public charter school open enrollment season from November 2, 2015 through February 3, 2016. This new process allows PGCPS to streamline data entry and accurately capture family information that links families and especially siblings.

To submit a CMIT North sibling preference application, please logon at http://lottery.pgcps.org to submit your application for sibling preference. Sibling preference is based on seat availability and never a guarantee. If there are more sibling preference request than seats available, a sibling lottery will be held to determine placement.

PARCC the Curriculum in Enrichment
As we are quickly approaching PARCC, PARTNERSHIP FOR ASSESSMENT OF READINESS FOR COLLEGE AND CAREERS, we want to ensure that our students have a firm grasp of concepts that been taught in classes and additional practice to ensure their confidence with testing. During Enrichment classes in the 3rd quarter, enrichment teachers will have students working with IXL, Digits, and MathXL to provide practice of the standards.

All teachers will work with Parcc standards through their curriculum as they have been doing all year and will continue through the end of the school year.

Please allow your students to work on areas of concern at home as well. Every student has their log in and they are welcome to work on items at home without penalty.

Thank you for all your support.

MS BREAKING NEWS
Help students to cope with Stress
It is important for everyone to develop healthy ways to cope with stress. The ability to effectively cope with stress impacts every aspect of life. Today's students are under stress at school, home, with their peers and other areas of their life. Learning coping skills allows for students to be able to handle stress in a way that is beneficial for their overall well-being. It is important that student's learn ways to cope because this will impact how they tackle problems they face in their life. Even parents can often use a refresher on effective and healthy ways to cope with whatever life throws at you. Parents make sure to have an open discussion with your student about how they cope with stress. Be sure to check in often with your student to assess how they are feeling and if they are experiencing higher volumes of stress. One way to discover new coping skills is to simply ask the question, "What makes you happy when you are feeling down?†This question will allows for the identification of coping skills already present and possibly discover new ones.

Here are some examples of positive coping skills:
-Exercise
-Stress balls
-Paint a picture
-Go to a movie
-Talk to a friend, parent, counselor
-Listen to music
-Write in a journal
-Bake/Cook
-Sing/Dance
-Doodle
-Yoga/Mediate
-Do a puzzle

There are hundreds of coping skills, we all must find the ones that work for us!

Weed Warrior Work Days

Whitemarsh Park, 100 White Marsh Park Dr, Bowie, MD 20715

March 20th, 2016, 2:00 to 5:00 p.m.

May 21st, 2016, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

www.cityofbowie.org/weedwarriors

The City of Bowies Green Team is in need of volunteers to help remove English ivy from Whitemarsh Park. As an invasive, non-native plant, English ivy spreads quickly and easily, and is very destructive to native ecosystems. This is an outdoor activity that requires cutting the ivy vines at eye-level and foot-level, then pulling them back about two feet from the base of the tree to bag them. To participate, please register by contacting Kristin Larson (klarson@cityofbowie.org, 301-809-3044). This is a great Student Service Learning opportunity. Children age 14 and younger must be under the direct supervision of a parent/guardian or Troop Leader at all times, and no volunteers under age 16 can use tools but may participate by pulling and bagging vines. Tiffany Wright (Watershed Manager for the City of Bowie) or Kristin Larson (Sustainability Planner for the City of Bowie) will sign off on service learning hours for students at the event.
