Attendance Matters
Parents/Guardians:

The following is applicable for EXCUSED absence, tardiness, and early dismissal:

When sending attendance letters, handwritten or via email, ensure you include name of your child, grade level, the date(s) and reason they were not in school, your printed name and signature.

Depending on the circumstance (absent, tardy, early dismissal), a note must be provided upon return of your child to school to avoid being marked as unexcused. If a note is being sent via email, you may send it to:

-----> secretary@cmitacademy.org <-----

If you or your child(ren) will hand deliver a note, you must submit it to the front desk to be photocopied. The copy will be given to your child to show each teacher while the original will be filed for attendance recording purposes.

Also remember to review the PGCPS list of excused and unexcused absences found in the Students Rights and Responsibilities Handbook.

The state of Maryland recognizes the following as lawful (EXCUSED) absences from school:

-Death in the immediate family
-Illness of the student
-Quarantine
-Court summons
-Principal-approved activity
-Mental or physical incapacity
-Violent storms
-Observance of a religious holiday
-State of emergency

FYI: This email address serves as a DROPBOX for attendance recording purposes ONLY, you will not receive a response and must contact your student's teachers directly regarding missed assignments.

Last Day of School for PGCPS Students
To the PGCPS Community:

As you know, seven days have been missed this year due to inclement weather. Our school calendar had four inclement weather make-up days scheduled: June 15, 16, 17, and 20, 2016, leaving us with three additional days to address. Today, the Maryland State Board of Education granted a waiver for two of the three days. We made up the other day by holding school on February 12, originally scheduled to be a day off. The following outlines how we will adjust the calendar to accommodate the days missed:

Monday, June 20 is the last day of school for students, with schools dismissing two hours early.
High school graduation dates are not impacted.
There is a two-hour early dismissal for students on Friday, June 17.
PGCPS understands school delays or closures greatly impact students, families, and staff. When making decisions to close or delay schools, the district’s key focus is on the safety of students and staff.

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

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.

HS BREAKING NEWS
HS UPDATES
Dear CMIT Parents,

First of all, I would like to thank you guys for being proactive parents by sharing your wonderful ideas with me to improve education practices at CMIT. You can not imagine how helpful seeing things from your perspective. I strongly believe that we will reach great success here, at CMIT together.

I am so glad to let you know that we will have our first prom at Martin Crosswinds in Greenbelt. I would like to give my special thanks to CLF for their great help to rent this beautiful place for our first graduating class. Also, with CLF`s great help, we will hold our graduation ceremony at Bowie State University Theatre. I am so excited for our students and their families. You will receive more details soon regarding planning and preparation.
I proudly announce that we are about to finalize draft schedules for next year. Please expect an email from your counselor, Mr. Gegwich. He will start to reach 12th graders students and parents first and 11th graders will follow etc. Having the schedule this early is very important because of planning next year internships, dual enrollments, and work experiences. Because of CMIT`s unique curriculum, most of 12 graders have two or three credits left to take. That allows a pretty open schedule for them to have all those experiences before college.

As an assistant principal, from my perspective, I strongly encourage my students to have dual enrollment this summer and next year to have college experience. It is extremely important. Please use this opportunity! I trust my students and believe they will show us a great success during their college applications. I am looking forward to hear ‘acceptance’ letters from colleges for each of my students.

As you know I am a mom of three. From the perspective of a mother, I need to highlight having work experience is important as much as dual enrollments so they will clearly see that starting life without a college degree is not easy. Sometimes having real life difficulties can provide more teachable moments than -mom speeches-. Please consider this little detail as well.

I would like to ask a favor from CMIT parents. Please consider, our staff members are working hard to provide best education for our students. Please take a moment to say thank you for their dedication and commitment.

McSparron 4th Quarter Update: Literature Circles and Class Novels
Greetings,
The 4th quarter is underway and Mr. McSparron's RELA students are hard at work studying media and it's impact on daily life. Students will have a Notebook Check on our Media Study unit at the end of this month.
I'm also excited to announce that Literature Circles are returning, with some changes. First, students will no longer be required to write summaries of each reading. Instead, students will complete their assigned Discussion Role as a homework assignment, in order to be prepared for the class discussion. The second change is the book list itself. Due to time constraints, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, by Mark Twain, Holes, by Louis Sachar and The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton, will all be assigned as Summer Reading. Students will read Redwall, by Brian Jacques, for their Literature Circle and we will read The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien in class during the month of May. Please see the reading schedule below, and please e-mail me if you have any questions.

Literature Circle Reading Schedule
*Please note that Redwall is divided into three parts that the author refers to as “books.” All three “books” are just part of the same novel and are not three separate texts.

Due April 25: Redwall Book 1, Chapters 1-10

Due May 2: Redwall Book 1, Chapters 11-20

May 9-13: PARCC Test (No RELA Homework this week)

Due May 16: Redwall Book 2, Chapters 1-11

Due May 23: Redwall Book 2, Chapters 12-23

Science Interactive Notebooks
CMIT Grade 6 and 7 students have worked very hard on their Science Interactive Notebooks and will continue to do so for the remainder of the school year in Dr. Clarke and Mrs. Crespo’s classes. The Science Interactive Notebook is an engaging tool that students use to show that they understand what has been taught in class as this allows them to record information and process them to improve their level of understanding. As a result, they become more independent thinkers while showcasing some of their creativity, and develop graphic and organizational skills that help them learn better and express ideas in a way that they best understand. The interactive notebook serves as their study tool to help them prepare for the final test in class.

The Science Interactive Notebook is worth 10 assessment points on each week.

The following are the week numbers and topics covered so far:

Grade 6:
Week 1- Earth and Rocks (Due Date: March 4, 2016)
Week 2- Plate Tectonics (Due Date: March 14, 2016)
Week 3- The Solar System (Due Date: April 5, 2016)

Grade 7:
Week 1- The Periodic Table (Due Date: March 4, 2016)
Week 2- Atoms and the Periodic Table of Elements (Due Date: March 14, 2016)
Week 3- Force and Motion (Due Date: April 5, 2016)

To create the Science Interactive Notebook, students must have the following materials:

1. Notebook
2. Pencil with eraser
3. A pair of scissors
4. Glue or glue stick
5. Color pencils or crayons
6. Interactive Notebook templates (print outs)

Instructions:
1. Cut out the Interactive Notebook Templates for the week
2. Answer the questions given. Write down notes from the class’ discussions, handouts or books / workbooks.
3. Color and decorate the pages.
4. Organize and paste them in the Interactive Notebook.
5. Have fun learning!
