Attendance Reminder
Dear Parents, Are you planning a family trip for the holidays? As you think about your arrangements, we want to stress the importance of sending your child to school every day possible. Every year, absences spike in the weeks before and after the winter holiday as families squeeze in a few more vacation days. It’s time to break that cycle. We know that just a few missed days here and there, even if they’re excused absences, can add up to too much lost learning time and put your child behind in school. This is as true in kindergarten as it is in high school. Put simply, too many absences at any age can affect a student’s chances for academic success and eventually for graduation. We recognize that holidays are an important time for reconnecting with families far away. The costs of plane tickets often influence when you want to travel. But keep in mind the costs to your children’s education if they miss too much school— and the message you will be sending about the importance of attendance. Even if you’ve got a homework packet from the teacher, it doesn’t make up for the interaction and learning that happens in the classroom. Our teachers will be teaching, and our students will be learning, right up until vacation starts and the first day back. You can help us convey that message. This holiday season, give your children the gift of an education and the habit of attendance. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out.

Sincerely, Ms. Natalie Gaudette, Professional School Counselor ngaudette@cmitacademy.org

HS UPCOMING EVENTS
National Honor Society American Red Cross Drive
The National Honor Society will host a supplies drive from Monday, December 9th to Thursday, December 19th to be donated to the American Red Cross. First period A Day (A1) classrooms will have the opportunity to earn a dress down day as a class. Students should coordinate in their classes to bring in their own boxes which will be used to collect the items in A1 classrooms. Students may donate non-expired canned goods of any kind as well as new packs of socks. Each can and each pack (not each pair) of socks will be counted as "1" item. Any A1 classroom that collects 75 "items" by the Thursday, December 19th deadline will earn a dress down day on the Friday after returning from winter break. Wristbands will be distributed to the classrooms that qualify on Friday, December 20th. Thank you for participating! We can't wait to see how many items we can collect as a school!

Sincerely, The National Honor Society

HS TEACHER ANNOUNCEMENTS
African American Historical Documentaries Club aka Black History on Film
In November, we had a fun outing to see the movie “Harriet”, which is still in theatres. So check out the brave Harriet Tubman real superhero in action! We have been watching Shaka Zulu, the story of the Zulu King in South Africa. You can find it on Netflix. If you’d like a plot overview you can find one on Youtube.com: https://youtu.be/BZLGKFWlRzY Due to many sports conflicts, we are changing the club dates to the first Tuesday of the month. The next meeting at school will be Tuesday, January 7th from 3pm to 5pm in Room 209. Hope to see you there. All are welcome! Since many African Americans were stolen from Africa and enslaved in America, the information about which country, region or tribe they came from was lost. Today, we can use our DNA to get an idea from whence we came, but in 1976, Alex Haley traced his lineage back to a man from the Gambia in Africa called Kunta Kinte! He wrote a book and created a TV miniseries about that time called “ROOTS.” The miniseries is now playing on the Bounce cable network. If you want to know where Disney’s “The Lion King” got the idea for its intro, check out this clip from the first episode of “Roots!” https://youtu.be/02sXPkfS9UE Finally, I want to wish you all Happy Holidays! Just in case you ever wondered, here is a link to help explain the holiday Kwanzaa: https://youtu.be/6aEbpFb1HZY
