HS BREAKING NEWS
Class of 2019 U.M.B.C. and "Bondfire" Field Trip Friday 10/19/18
The Senior Class journeyed on a College Knowledge-seeking Bonding Adventure on Friday, 19 October 2018. Ms. Cline, along with one parent volunteer, Mrs. Finch, PTO President, escorted and chaperoned 50 of our 57 impending graduates to the campus of the University of Maryland-Baltimore County, located in the historic and prestigious Catonsville, Maryland. This was Reveille Day! & hundreds/thousands of Seniors, from all over, strolled the campus, attended college workshops, shared lunch and ideas from 8am-1:30pm. Our Seniors were model citizens as they maneuvered themselves from one scholarly event to another. It makes a mother eagle proud to witness her flock take off with such dignity. We boarded the bus again for Sharp’s Farm, in Howard County, for oneness with nature and good old-fashioned bonding fun. Met by another PTO Representative, Mrs. Milline, bringing food, water, sporting equipment, plus for our scholars. Later Mr. Johnson, PTO, came to help keep the logs burning. Administrator Avsar and Son came and assisted until their departure. Our students’ mastered the corn maze in no-time flat. They visited and fed the farm animals, shopped for fresh produce, etc. Students were amazed with the fresh air and openness of the farming environment. Later, a hayride suited our fancy, along the pasture and through the creek. What an experience! Back through the corn maze and our bonfire. What can I say….incredible! Students roasted hot dogs & marshmallows…making smores & having the best time, perhaps almost ever. There was music and dancing and camaraderie. For the finale, Ms. Mitchell made an appearance after being lost in the wilderness. Tenacity got her there. We were pleased to greet all who were willing to depart from urban and suburban life for a few hours to experience a glimpse of the rural segments of our area. Class of 2019 Members, if this trip is indicative of future outings, I’ll definitely take you anywhere & everywhere. Class of 2019. you are remarkable & I am honored to have served as your advisor since I have been with CMIT-North High School. Attached are a few pictures of our students, enjoying themselves.

CMIT Athletics CultureFEST Fundraising Booths
Dear CMIT Parents, We are having a multicultural fest, as we do every school year and are asking for your help. The cultural fest is a student event where they get to show insights on their culture. While the audience is going around witnessing these different cultures of students, it would be nice to have something to eat and drink. We, as an athletic department, are asking if you could kindly donate snacks and drinks for this event. Also, if you have a specific culture, you may bring in a home-cooked dish to share in the event. This will help us raise money within the sports department. If you are interested in supporting all athletes in this event, please click the link below and fill out which school you will be supporting and what you would like to donate. Thank You!! https://goo.gl/forms/tti7vjWky2fpJCRx1 https://www.clfadvancedstudies.org/culturefest Donation items drop off locations until Friday, Nov 02, 2018 CMIT Middle Schooll Front Office - Attn: Coach Abdi CMIT High School Front Office- Attn: Mr. Cihan

Tardies - Dress Down Not Earned
Unfortunately this week, tardies increased again. Students, please get to class on time! You're doing so much better with being in uniform, so the only thing that is holding you back from weekly dress down days is the tardies! I know you can do it if you just stay organized and socialize at your lunch time instead of the few minutes you have between classes. You can do it!

End of Q1 is Quickly Approaching
Hello, CMIT Families! Guess what? We are already nearly 1/4th of the way through the year. That's right, the first quarter ends this week on Friday, November 2nd. Please be sure you are checking SchoolMax regularly and contacting your student's teachers if you have questions about grades before this date. Respectfully,

Administrative Procedure 5116 | Grade Change Authorizations + Appeals
Hello, CMIT Families. As the first quarter draws to an end, we want to make you aware of some new administrative procedures set by the county. All grade changes must be entered by a specific date after the end of each quarter. In order for this to happen, parents and guardians or students who believe a grade was entered incorrectly must make grade appeals WITHIN FIVE DAYS OF THE RELEASE OF REPORT CARDS. Ideally, we would like to minimize the number of grade changes that must be made after the end of each quarter. To assist with this, families, please be sure you are monitoring SchoolMax and reaching out to your student's teachers as soon as possible if you have questions about the grades your student is receiving. Respectfully,

CMIT Administration

November 6th is Coming. Vote!
Greetings Parents, Students, and CMIT Community, As you know, the midterm elections are taking place on Tuesday, November 6th. This is an important chance for you to participate in our democracy and shape the course of our country. Historians suggest that this may be the most consequential midterm election in a generation - one that will dictate the course the United States will take in the coming years. Regardless of your political beliefs, it is incumbent all of us to not only model good behavior but good citizenship for our students. To that end, we encourage those of you who are able to vote to do so on or before election day. While the deadline to register to vote online or by mail has passed, you can still register in person. Just go to Maryland State Board of Elections website for more information. If you are already registered, you can search for or confirm your polling place here. Remember, early voting started October 25th and runs through November 1st at designated locations that are open from 10am to 8pm. That means you have the opportunity to vote even if you are working on November 6th. To learn more about the candidates and ballot initiatives on the ballot, we recommend you explore the non-partisan voters guide from the League of Women Voters. We know that not everyone in the CMIT community is able to vote, but there are still plenty of opportunities for everyone to participate this election. Most importantly, you can encourage and assist friends and family members who are able to vote to do so. Offer rides to people in your community who might need help getting to their polling place or offer to watch their kids. Keep in mind that Maryland state law allows for up to 2 children under the age of 18 to accompany a voter into the voting booth, and we strongly encourage parents to bring their children with them when they vote as there is no school on November 6th. Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors...encourage everyone you know who can vote to do so. Post on social media. Share the resources from this letter. Shout it from the rooftops. Everyone who can vote, should vote! It makes a difference! Some of your teachers may even be offering class incentives for you to get involved. Seniors, Class of 2019...if you turn 18 on or before November 6th, then this is your first election, and you are eligible to vote. Get out there and do it! President Teddy Roosevelt said that, “the first duty of every American is that they shall work in politics,” and we agree. No matter what that looks like for you, we urge you to get and stay involved. Your votes and your actions do make all the difference. November 6th is your opportunity for your voice to be heard, so please go vote and make a difference. Best Regards,

CMIT Social Studies Department
