HS BREAKING NEWS
FIRST Robotics' Countdown: 4 Weeks to Complete
The Team Illusion robotics team worked on assembling pieces of their robot in the last weeks' meetings. We took apart an older robot in order to acquire pieces for the new robot. We ordered pieces that we were missing. The programmers also started to makes files to store our programs in order to drive and do different functions. We started to assemble the gearboxes and started to wire the motors to their respective controllers. We have 4 more weeks to build the robot! FIRST Robotics team meets every Monday, Wednesday and Fridays from 3:00pm to 5:00pm and every Saturday from 10:00am to 2:00pm in room 137. By: Bilal Suleman 10th Grade

Important Parking Reminders!
Students who have a CMIT-N parking permit (above) may park in the designated parking zones for the students. There are two designated areas for Student Only parking: 1 - The parking zone behind the elementary school (parking spots 1-24). If a student has a parking permit with a number from 1 to 24, s/he should park there. The number on the permit should match with the number on the parking spot. 2 - The parking zone in the neighboring building (opposite the cafeteria). There are 16 parking spots marked CMIT but without numbers. Students who have a parking permit with a number which is higher than 25-40 should park in this zone. NO STUDENT IS ALLOWED TO DRIVE OR PARK ON SCHOOL PROPERTY WITHOUT A VALID CMIT-N STUDENT PARKING PERMIT. Also, if a student fails to follow CMIT-N parking rules, his/her car will be subject to towing! I still have three parking permits for students. If any student still needs a parking permit, check your e-mail inbox. I sent an email last week with instructions on how to get a CMIT-N parking permit.

Please make plans for your student's transportation from school accordingly. Respectfully,

HS TEACHER ANNOUNCEMENTS
Physical Education Classes
As a reminder, when the semester changes, students who are currently taking Health Education will be switching to PE and therefore will need to have the correct PE uniform starting January 27th. This means a CMIT PE t-shirt, CMIT PE shorts or sweatpants, and sneakers.

Blood Detection Lab
Students in Ms. Gonzalez's Forensics class worked to solve a case! They collected evidence from the crime scene and potential suspects, then tested the objects with Luminol to determine which stains were real blood and which was stained with something else. The evidence that had traces of blood glowed a bright blue! The excitement exhibited by the students when real blood was detected and the case was solved had our enthusiastic young forensic scientists ready for more!
