Earth Day - Environmental Concerns and CMIT Families Outdoors

The proper use of science is not to conquer nature but to live in it. - Barry Commoner

Every April 22, communities across the world observe Earth Day. Bringing Earth Day into the classroom allows students to explore the purpose and significance of the holiday and raises their awareness of environmental issues. This year, CMIT academy celebrated Earth Day on Friday, May 26, 2017 with activities full of fun and education.

The celebration started with a virtual conference with Hanna Seligmann, the outreach coordinator of The Alice Ferguson Foundation, over Skype, which was simultaneously broadcasted through screen share and video chat to every CMIT classroom and hallway TV - it was everywhere. Learning that a high percentage of biodegradable plastic ends up in landfills and oceans was really surprising for most students. The Alice Ferguson Foundation has partnered with and engaged CMIT students as environmental stewards. [(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIEx3ctDwGw) please start the video @ 58:19 minutes]

Having the opportunity to watch Hidden Figures - The story of a team of female African-American mathematicians who served a vital role in NASA during the early years of the U.S. space program - was one of the most stimulating experience of the day. It instilled decorum and a interdisciplinary lessons across science curriculum.

A very memorable experience came so short yet sweet when students went to the carnival to spend time performing, playing and experimenting - enjoying making slime, tattooing with henna, eating, running, listening, or watching talent shows, going to athletics, playing kickball, and much more! 😍

Thank you very much to all the administrators, teachers, staff, and parents who selfishly volunteer their time. You occupy a very unique and important responsibility in our students’ education. My deepest gratitude for your dedicated service and great help to make this event successful. The job was really tremendous, and the challenge was so great BUT you made it easy flowing.

I am continuously grateful for the opportunity serving as a science department chair because YOU made CMIT stewardship extremely significant, meaningful and wonderfully challenging!

Character Education / Life Skills - Resolving Conflicts
Hello Parents:

Your scholars are reviewing previous skills as they learn and practice techniques for resolving conflicts.

The major objectives for this lesson are being able to identify negotiations as the preferred method for resolving conflicts; review techniques for controlling anger, assertiveness, communication skills and decision-making; and apply them to conflict situations; recognize that negotiations and problem-solving skills can resolve conflicts; and lastly, demonstrate success in resolving conflicts.

The major vocabulary words are:

Compromise: each side gives up something to gain something

Negotiation: techniques for turning conflicts to be fought into problems to so solved by working together so that both sides get what is most important to them

Win-Win Situation: conflict resolution in which both sides get what they want

Summary:
Your scholars will have learned techniques that will help them prevent fights and resolve conflicts. Encourage them to practice these techniques and to use them in real-life situations.

It has been my pleasure to champion and/or empower your scholars with meaningful knowledge and etiquette this academic year.


Sincerely,
Dr. Sullivan-Williams (a.k.a. Dr. BB)
