Please continue to clip and submit your UPCs and Caps until June 20th. You can give your labels to Ms. Lawrence or Mr. Snyder or leave them in the collection box in the front office.

College Bound Day
This past Friday was deemed College Bound Day at CMIT Academy Middle School. So many different items were shared with students to spark their continued interest in staging their path to be college bound students.

17 College students volunteered their time to come in and speak with our middle school students to discuss their experience in college and what worked and didn't work for them.

As one student stated, We also had our very own Ms. Riley discuss Education = Income with some students in Ms. Wakes Class. The most memorable thing she said was "...at 21 in terms of Money, we have no money ". This defiantly made me realize that I live a privileged life and if I want to continue to live this way I need to work hard at my career goal so I can eat all that I want and be comfortable with all my extra curricular life activities. Not just work to live."

Teacher's discussed a varying array of topics
1. How to choose a major
2. Athletics
3. NCAA Sports
4. Dorm Life
5. Sororities and Fraternities
6. Admission process
7. Tuition and scholarships
8. Aligning your interest to a college major
9. How to choose a college
10. Different types of colleges
11. Studying Aboard
12. Work Load and types of assignments
13. Benefits of small/private vs. large/public, close-to-home vs. out of state
14. College Readiness and what it takes
15. Class schedules and time management
16. Choosing engineering as a major and what is involved
17. College Scavenger Hunt" where students will go to www.campustours.com and researching a college they might be interested in and answering questions on a worksheet based on what they find about that college
18. What Can College Do for You?

From Mrs. Cabrera's desk
Students, during the summer take time to practice your Spanish. Review the numbers (that help you when doing money transactions, addresses, phone numbers etc.) It is important to review conjugations too. As the 4th quarter is winning down we are going to continue practicing with the verb gustar (positive and negative as well as singular and plural).
Remember that are NOT done jet, classes are ending on June 20th. We still need to study and come prepare for class with pencil, pen, notebook, books, etc.

Gracias,
Mrs. Cabrera-Avila
