End of 2nd Quarter is Near
Hello CMIT Families! Welcome back and Happy New Year! We hope you have had a restful break. The year is moving quickly. The end of the second quarter arrives on Friday, January 25th. This is plenty of time for students to increase their grades with consistency and hard work, if that is a goal. Please be sure you and your students are checking SchoolMax regularly for updates and encourage students to submit any work that they are still eligible to submit. Also, if you have questions about grades, this is a good time to start reaching out to teachers for clarity if you have not already done so. Let's end the quarter strong!

HS TEACHER ANNOUNCEMENTS
Ms. Coholic's Science Classes
Hi, Everyone. BioGeoChem students will be completing a seismology project this week. Students graphed scatterplots of actual earthquake focus depth for the spreading Pacific plate with subduction under Tonga and Chile. We will complete the project with locating an epicenter in North America. Physics students will continue conservation laws and momentum, impulse, and elastic and inelastic collisions. Students should be searching for materials they may find (not purchase) for use for a Rube Goldberg Machine project that begins 3rd quarter.
