HS BREAKING NEWS
Science Olympiad Team Updates<br>
There is only one week left before the high school’s University of Maryland tournament, and everybody is getting their last bit of notes in. The middle school’s tournament may not be until February 8th, but the students are still working hard. - The Wright Stuff Team (Balsa Airplane) went on their regular Thursday practice at the middle school gym, and they got a 30 second flight time reportedly. - The Elastic Launch Glider Team and Ping Pong Parachute team went to the middle school gym for practice. - The Boomilever team just completed building its third boomilever and tried (broke) it. Efficiency is increasing! Thanks to their coaches, they learned new things and improved their cheatsheets. Both high school and middle school teams have come a long way. Of course, there in the road, but they have improved since then. The school is counting on you, Science Olympiad. GO TIGERS!!! Written by: Reina Finch Team Captain Assistant Coach Senior Student

HS TEACHER ANNOUNCEMENTS
Live in the City of Laurel? Get a Free Tree!
Laurel Friends of the River Patuxent is a network of neighbors working together to protect and enhance our local environment. We are looking for 150 sites to plant trees. We want to include every neighborhood in the city in this celebration of nature, Laurel’s 150th anniversary, and the 50th anniversary of Earth Day in 2020. Trees are a great way to help the environment through supplying oxygen and absorbing carbon. They provide shade, reduce noise and cool your home. In addition, trees help reduce erosion, provide needed habitat for birds and other species and protect the health of our greatest natural resource, the Patuxent River. We will help you select the right variety of native tree species for your site, explain how to care for the young tree and donate the tree. Join us in leaving a green legacy for Laurel’s future residents. Contact: Cheryl Dyer at cheryldyer310@gmail.com

CMIT-N High School Dismissal Procedures Reminder
On regular school days, students will be dismissed at 2:45pm and must exit the building by 3:00pm. At the last bell, students are to proceed directly to their lockers to pick up their belongings whether they are leaving the building or remaining in the building for a club, tutoring, enrichment, athletics, or similar event. Students must leave the building at the end of the day through the hallway near the cafeteria only and may not return after exiting. Students participating in clubs, tutoring, enrichment, athletics, or similar events are expected to remain with their sponsors, teachers, or coaches. Students who need to use the restroom during after school hours must have a pass and clearly be en route to or from the restroom. Students who are in violation of this procedure may lose the privilege of participating in after school activities. Timeliness is important. All departures from school at the end of the day must be on time. No loitering. Otherwise, students may lose privileges or face other consequences. It is the parents' responsibility to pick up students right after dismissal. If parents are unable to pick up their students after school on time, they may register their student(s) for Enrichment (CLF`s after school care program). Please see the details of the enrichment program in this link: http://clfmd.org/enrichment-2/
