The Internet Safety program titled “Innocence Stolen: Protecting Our Children Online”
Mr. Vincent DeVivo visited CMIT on Thursday, May 5, 2016 and gave a phenomenal presentation on how best to protect our students from Internet predators, cyber bullying and other negative online influences. Whether you consider yourself an expert or a novice when it comes to social media, most walked away from the presentation with a different perception of how dangerous it can be for our children to access the World Wide Web without proper supervision and oversight. As a Community Outreach Specialist at the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Maryland, Mr. DeVivo spoke about real life scenarios and the damaging consequences that result when prevention and intervention strategies are not discussed or practiced in and outside of our households. A handout containing helpful information that can safeguard our students while using social media for fun or education was made available at the presentation. Hard copies are available at the school as well as the attached electronic format. We hope to have Mr. DeVivo return in the fall to share this informative presentation with our school community as we continue to promote a safe and healthy learning environment at CMIT.

Please take time to review the presentation at the link below:

Student Service Learning Opportunity - Weed Warrior Work Days
May 21, 2016, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

www.cityofbowie.org/weedwarriors

Volunteers are needed 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). 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.
