CMIT BREAKING NEWS (SCHOOLWIDE)
Principal's Message
Dear Parents and Guardians, Our hearts are heavy with the unfortunate reality that PGCPS will be closed to students and staff from March 16 to Friday March 27 due to concerns surrounding the novel Coronavirus outbreak. CMIT North High School teachers are working collaboratively and helping each other to improve their online class activities, and I was able to observe a couple online classes as well. I’m happy and proud to see our teachers and students doing their best to continue learning activities. CMIT North High School will do its best to keep our scholars engaged by creating meaningful learning materials. CMIT North High School teachers are taking this situation very seriously and will do all they can to support their students while at home. This new learning environment certainly won’t be the same as in the classroom, therefore the teachers and your students need your support more now than ever as a parent. You will need to check and recheck all your teachers' Google Classrooms, and ensure that you will update your information in SchoolMax and teachers’ email lists to continue effective communication. All faculty members have been instructed to use their Google Classrooms and school emails as an anchor point for students and parents. We are committed to do our very best to keep the learning momentum going under these unprecedented circumstances. Please remember, there are simple everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus and other respiratory viruses. These include: - Avoiding close contact with people who are sick. - Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. - Washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. If you are sick, to keep from spreading respiratory illness to others, you should: - Stay home when you are sick. - Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. - Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. Thank you for your support and cooperation!

Class of 2020 College Acceptance Successes!
I want to recognize the great work our seniors have been doing on their college applications! 86% of our seniors have applied to at least 1 college. These seniors have submitted 490 total applications across 136 different colleges, with an average of 6 applications per senior (of those that applied to at least 1 college). We have already seen 193 acceptances roll in with 75% of our seniors gaining at least one acceptance so far (of those that applied to at least 1 college), but we are excited to continue seeing these acceptances coming in! Our seniors have earned $2.8 million in 4-year awards so far (not including loans), but keep in mind that a lot of our students haven't received their financial aid awards yet! So far, our average financial aid award has been $13,560 per year ($54,240 over 4 years) not including loans. Congratulations to all of our outstanding seniors who are working towards their postsecondary plans! Seniors, if you have additional acceptances and financial aid awards to report, please send those to Ms. Gaudette!

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

Senior Diploma Verification Forms
Hello, Class of 2020 Families: Senior Diploma Verification Forms were handed out to each senior two weeks ago. These forms are needed to ensure the accuracy of the spelling of their names on the student's high school diploma. The deadline to submit the signed forms is Friday, April 3, 2020. Please be sure to view this form, sign, and submit back to me as soon as possible. As we will be out of school for the next week, feel free to scan and email a copy of the form to my email at sbond@cmitacademy.org. I have attached instructions, as well as a blank copy of the form, if needed. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me. Thank you and have a wonderful and safe week.

HS TEACHER ANNOUNCEMENTS
Ms. Coholic's Science Classes
Hi Students and Parents! Hey Kiddos! I miss seeing you everyday! But I'm really happy to see all of you working on your assignments and giving thoughtful answers to difficult questions. I'm doing my very best to keep your grades up to date in SchoolMax, as well. For BioGeoChem, we will be pressing on with the curriculum on Earth Systems Integration and Human Impacts. This should get you well-prepared for the MISA. (Speaking of MISA, I still have no word on if the test will be pushed back or be administered in May as originally scheduled. I'll let you know as soon as I know more. Parents, here is link with more info: https://mdk12.msde.maryland.gov/assessments/Pages/k_8/standard1/index.aspx) For Physics, we will continue with mirrors this week. We will be wrapping up the EM Radiation unit and hopefully beginning Electricity and Circuits soon. For now, everyone keep checking SchoolMax and Google Classroom daily. The magic word is HYGIENE!, so wash hands often and be healthy and well. I hope I see you again soon. :)

Ms. Coholic's Science Classes
Hello Everybody! Well, we made it through Week 1 of the 'Great Shutdown.' I'm so pleased with the efforts made by my students! I will be posting lessons for this week in Google Classroom ASAP. So far: BioGeoChem students have been studying natural resources with effects on economics, environment, and civilizations. We will continue to use the e-text and supplementary materials (videos, links, etc.). Physics students have been studying EM radiation, light rays, and plane mirror concepts. I will be teaching from my collection of previous year's class notes so students learn concepts as well as how to use their analytic math skills to quantify solutions to problems. Keep up the great work Kiddos! I'm proud of you!

Forensic Science Gel Electrophoresis Lab
Prior to school closings and our transition to an alternative approach to education throughout the quarantine, our students were practicing college-level laboratory techniques by performing their own gel electrophoresis lab experiment! Students were able to practice in the lab the last few days before schools closed to take that experience with them and apply it to their online education this week. Forensic students first learned proper micropipetting techniques before casting their own gels, loading their dyes, and running the gels. The most important part was analyzing who was the culprit! This mock experiment mimicked Forensic DNA analysis as the separated colors in the dyes were similar to DNA separating and forming unique banding patterns for each individual. Students had a great time, and verbal feedback confirmed it aided their understanding of the topic. Some may say the best part was squishing and destroying the slimy gels at the end... after analysis of course!

Mrs. Cunning's AP US Government and AP US History Classes
Hello Parents and Students! I hope all is well, and everyone has been able to adjust to the new norm this past week. I appreciate all of the students and families reaching out to me with questions and concerns and for staying on top of their assignments. This week will be a little different, as College Board announced they have changed the format of the AP exam, and will be offering two different testing dates. Please hold on to your packets, as we may revisit them at a later time. College Board stated that while they are still working out how an online exam will look, they are thinking that it will only last 45 minutes and will only cover information from Periods 1-7. More information will be released the beginning of April. To adjust to these updates, we will begin reviewing those periods this week. See the posted image for the course work for this coming week.

The assignments and instructions for this week are posted to Google Classroom, but below is a summary: 1) Read and take notes on the review chapter of time period C. 1200-1450. 2) Complete the Albert.io practice questions for 1200-1450. 3) Complete the 3 short answer and 1 long essay question posted on AP Classroom. WORLD HISTORY The assignments and instructions for this week are posted to Google Classroom, but below is a summary: 1) To end our unit on Industrialization and Imperialism, students will complete a DBQ essay. 2) To begin our next unit on World War I, the Interwar Years, and World War II, students will watch and complete questions on 2 Crash Course World History videos. 3) The third assignment this week will be to review a PowerPoint on the M.A.N.I.A. Causes of WWI and to complete the corresponding questions. Please let me know if you have any questions at all. Best,
