CMIT BREAKING NEWS (SCHOOLWIDE)
Allergy Season Has Arrived
With the first day of spring behind us, it is time to start allergy remedies and medications again. I have attached a link from the Mayo Clinic that contains some great information on seasonal allergies. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/hay-fever/in-depth/seasonal-allergies/art-20048343 Any students needing to use eye drops or other medications during the day are required to have a physician’s order form signed by a doctor and kept in the health room. Forms can be found at https://www1.pgcps.org/health-forms/. Allergy Tip: Taking daily allergy medication at night ensures that the medication peaks during the morning, when allergens are at their worst.

HS BREAKING NEWS
End of 3rd Quarter is Near
Hello CMIT Families! Spring is here, and so is the end of the third quarter, which ends this week on Thursday, March 28th. Please be sure you and your students are checking SchoolMax 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!

Registration for MakerFEST is Open!
Held on the first Saturday in May, this will be the 3rd Annual MakerFEST, CLF's yearly STEAM Festival celebrating our community's inner genius! CLF schools are now eight programs and six institutions across the State of Maryland serving over 3,200 students K-12! MakerFEST invites these students to participate with staff, parents and our wider CLF STEM community partners to feel encouraged to exhibit and enjoy all the day's inventions, artwork, personal projects, experiments, robots, wild creations, noble attempts, fine solutions to typical problems, and makers making so much more! CLF will also have volunteer opportunities available for anyone who wants to help build the best MakerFEST ever! To register for an exhibition space visit https://www.clfadvancedstudies.org/makerfest For volunteer opportunities visit https://goo.gl/forms/y1qs5zfo8OPOuRo92 This year, the first Saturday in May happens to coincide with May 4th, often celebrated by fans of the widely popular Star Wars franchise. We fundamentally feel obligated since astronomy, space exploration fit all too well into the MakerFEST concept, so Community Partnerships is also encouraging all exhibitors to share their project progress with @CLF_CLF on twitter or @ChesapeakeLighthouseFoundation on Facebook with the hashtag #MayTheFourthBuildWithYou. Until next update, May The Fourth Be With You!
