CMIT BREAKING NEWS (SCHOOLWIDE)
Spring Cricket Team for Middle School and 9th Graders

Dear CMIT North Cricket Parents,

The start of the cricket season is not too far away on 13 March. I spoke to Coach Stephen and he is excited to coach the team again. Ms Lawrence is also eager to have a cricket team again.

Please note that since we do not have cricket in high school yet, former CMIT North players now in 9th grade can still play cricket for the middle school team.

If your child is interested in playing cricket for the school team, please go ahead and register him or her at the Bowie Boys and Girls Club website:

1. Go to www.bbgc.com
2. Either login to your account or register for a new account.
3. Select "WAMS Cricket League (middle schools)".
4. The cost will be $75 per player. If you register before 11:45pm on 17 Feb, you will get a $5 discount.
5. You can also purchase a circular Bowie Cricket Car Magnet for $5, which is our fundraiser.
6. Go to your cart and pay with your credit card.
7. You will eventually get an email from BBGC (postmaster@bluesombrero.com) with a receipt of your transaction.

Please send me a quick email once you have done so.

Thanks.

MS UPCOMING EVENTS

Students will explore the exhibits, and get engaged on feedings, animal encounters, and live presentations. Students intending to participate in this trip will depart from the school at 9:00 AM on February 23, 2017. Students will be back within regular school hours and should use their normal means of getting home.

Outside food is not permitted in the National Aquarium. Food, drinks, and gum are not allowed in the Aquarium. Students will have lunch in the cafeteria at the Aquarium. Students must bring cash, about $10-$15 for lunch on the day of the trip. STUDENTS MUST WEAR THEIR OXFORD UNIFORMS.

Spanish Class
Introduction to Spanish students are learning to talk about their family members and read texts about families in Spanish. They will be acting out a humorous skit with one another as the family members.

Spanish One students are reading about Puerto Rico's geography and topography, including the coqui frog, El Yunque national park, and the bioluminescent bay in Vieques. Chores and leisure activities are the topics for language study. What chores do your young scholars take responsibility for, and what leisure activities do they earn afterwards?

All students are working on a group project. The theme is Afro-Latino identity, culture, and history. The project is due at the end of the month. It is a group project. The groups must submit one two-page research report and present their chosen topic in class. I plan to grade the project as an assessment worth 160 points. The rubric is on your scholar's Google Classroom reel.

Sincerely,
Jared Hester

Sixth Grade Science Celebrating the Black History Month
Sixth grade students made research and created a slide presentation on Black mathematicians and scientists. Students highlighted their short biography and accomplishments. This activity brings awareness to the students about the life and contributions of Black Americans in the field of science and math. Their life and works serve as inspiration to them.

Lessons on earthquakes will resume this Tuesday. Students will learn more on earthquake and seismic waves, and monitoring earthquakes.

In Celebration of FBLA-PBL Week

History of FBLA-PBL & Conference Information

Our mission is to bring business and education together in a positive working relationship through innovative leadership and career development programs.
Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda is the premier student-to-student business association.

The FBLA concept was developed in 1937 by Dr. Hamden L. Forkner of Columbia University. The first high school chapter was chartered in Johnson City, Tennessee on February 3, 1942.

Maryland FBLA was established in April 1957 and holds state charter #25. The first Maryland FBLA chapter was Forest Park High School in Baltimore.

Maryland FBLA holds two state-wide conferences annually. More information on the Fall and State (Spring) Leadership Conferences is available in the Events section.

There are five administrative regions in Maryland FBLA each headed by a Regional Vice President. In the early spring, each region holds a competition to decide the members eligible to compete at the State Leadership Conference in late spring. The members who place first or second in their competitive event at the SLC are eligible to compete at the National Leadership Conference hosted by National FBLA-PBL.

The state chapter is managed by the MDFBLA Board of Directors and the current State Officer Team. Information on the State Staff, Board of Directors, and State Officer Team is available via the navigation menu.

Foundations of Technology
We have completed different projects and would love to share pictures of the students as they took pictures to recognize their contribution to their group assignments. Parents, thank you for your encouragement, resources and just the wholehearted supporting that you have given to our students during the first semester.

Our students will be participating in different group assignments in upcoming class to create a Catapult Project, Windmill Energy Project, Robotic Stacker and more leading up to the end of the school year. Please keep encouraging and helping them with resources to use on their project if they need it.

Please see the link to previous project pictures.
