CMIT recognizes and will celebrate the importance that recycling that plays in preserving our precious primary resources and securing the future of our planet. It is a day for every one of us to come together and put the planet first. We will re-educate, motivate and celebrate with our students to make CMIT a green school.

HS BREAKING NEWS
Quarter Two Reminders
The start of the second quarter is a great time to assess and renew. Hopefully, students are taking the time to do this in each of their classes. We also encourage students and their families to do so regarding school policies. You can find the Student Handbook for CMIT and PGCPS Student Rights and Responsibilities Handbook on the CMIT website or at this link (http://cmitacademy.org/highschool/handbook/). Of note, we ask for your continued support to ensure students are on time to class, in uniform, adhering to cell phone policies, and generally ready to learn each day. Respectfully,

SeaPerch
In our previous meeting, students worked together to create different types of hovercrafts. One type of hovercraft that students built was made up of styrofoam trays and a motor. Students also made hovercrafts using a compact disk and balloon. Students enjoyed working together while also getting prepared to build real underwater robots. The importance of following the directions was a big part of this activity and will be very important while building an underwater robot. In the next meeting, students will continue to finish their hovercrafts. SeaPerch meetings are on Tuesdays from 3:15pm to 5:15pm, and the team is open to all middle and high school students. If you are interested in participating in SeaPerch, just send an e-mail to Mr. Bayram at nbayram@cmitacademy.org Written by: Muneeb Sahibzada

Biology Pre Lab Discussion on the Effect of pH and Temperature in Enzymatic Reactions
Come and visit the Biology students with this in­ter­est­ing ex­per­i­ment that they were discussing to do. Biology students will ex­am­ine a se­ries of sev­en col­ored so­lu­tions to make a “chem­i­cal rain­bow.” By mix­ing dif­fer­ent reagents, they will get red, or­ange, yel­low, green, blue, in­di­go and vi­o­let col­ors, which will be classified from strong acid to strong base. They will use this knowledge to understand the effect of pH and temperature in the enzymatic reaction. Gemma Y Bognot Clarke, Ph.d. Science Teacher Coordinator
