CMIT BREAKING NEWS (SCHOOLWIDE)
Calling all Artist, Creatives, and Entrepreneurs! We Need Your Creativity at CultureFEST!
Hello, CLF Creatives & Entrepreneurs! Many of you have experienced CultureFEST before, but this year it's going to be a little different. CultureFEST 2019 will highlight our students, parents, and teachers who enjoy creating! That’s right! We want our community to share/sell their arts and crafts at CultureFEST! This is a unique opportunity to showcase our communities’ artistic talents! Please encourage your students to sign up for a FREE vendor booth or showcase your own artworks. Our educators are the foundation of STEAM. They help to create well-rounded students, and for that service, we will provide our teachers with FREE vendor booths at CultureFEST 2019! For our CLF Parents, we are offering booth spaces for the low price of $50 and $100 for any local businesses interested in participating! CultureFEST is an excellent opportunity to introduce your art, crafts, products, or business to all six (6) school communities! Your booth rental is treated as a charitable contribution towards CultureFEST 2020. Exhibit and invite your business network to CultureFEST! We have expanded the festival to provide more opportunities for our visual artist, but we haven’t forgotten about our performing artist! The CultureFEST main stage is the perfect place to perform if you are a dancer, rapper, singer, poet, musician, etc. The performing arts have been a staple at CultureFEST since the very beginning. Our community comes to CultureFEST to see our students and teachers perform! Share this with your young performers and peers. Let's shine a bright light on all of our CLF artists! Join us on Saturday, November 2nd! Fill out our CultureFEST Sign-Up sheet! https://forms.gle/pPpSsheNtfhpUnTi9 Share your skills & talents!

HS UPCOMING EVENTS
PSAT for 9th and 11th Grades on October 16th
On Wednesday, October 16th, 2019, all 11th grade students at CMIT North will be taking the PSAT/NMSQT and all 9th grade students will be taking the PSAT 8/9. It is extremely important that students are present and on time. There are no make up days for this test. Students should be in their testing rooms by 8:05 am. Students CANNOT bring any portable electronic device into the testing room - including cell phones and smart watches. Students should bring a No. 2 Pencil (not mechanical) and a calculator. Additional pencils will be provided but calculators will NOT be provided. A graphing calculator is recommended but only if the student is comfortable with using that specific calculator since the proctors are not allowed to help students with their calculator. Also, please make sure that the calculator is fully charged or has fresh batteries, because students are not allowed to charge their calculators during the test. Please make sure that your student gets a good night's sleep and has breakfast. Food and drink are not permitted in the testing room.

Biology Experiment
This week, Ms. Gonzalez's Biology students were able to participate in a Macromolecules lab! Students chose different foods to test and used indicators to figure out what macromolecules the foods contained. They had to work together to determine what each indicator tested for based on their prior knowledge about food. At the end of the experiment, each group was assigned a different indicator and had to test an unknown sample. Then, they demonstrated the communication step of the scientific method by presenting their findings to the class. The class had to work together to figure out what the unknown sample contained!
