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:

HS BREAKING NEWS
Stay the Course. Rules Still Apply.
As a possible result of testing, dreary weather, anticipation of the end of school (20 days!) or some combination of all three, we are seeing a rise in discipline issues. Student support staff and I have spent a considerable amount of time working with students and contacting parents about concerns we are seeing. We could use your support during these last few weeks of school so we can end on a high note.

How? Remind your student that the rules will be enforced until the last day of school. Have your student review the Student Rights & Responsibilities Handbook and the school dress code. ( These are available under the student tab at www.cmitacademy.org ) Support your student to come to school on time, and emphasize the importance of continuing to put in hard, quality work.

We have built in some time to relax during the last few days of school. If we stay the course now, we can enjoy those rewards later.

Thanks in advance,

Ms. Colandrea
