HS TEACHER ANNOUNCEMENTS
Physical Education End of the Year Reminders
With a few days left in the quarter, please check that all of your assignments have been completed as I am accepting late work until Monday. As we conclude another year, I look forward to seeing everyone next year and putting this difficult time behind us. This summer stay safe, and if you need anything, please do not hesitate to reach out.

AP US History and AP US Government and Politics
To My Current Students - Thank you for such a great year! I am proud of what each of you accomplished throughout the course and could see a huge improvement in your understanding of not only concepts but in your ability to read and write critically and make connects to present day situations to history and politics. I know that this Spring was not what many of us were expecting, and that College Board switched the exam up on all of us, but I believe that all of you adapted to the changes without many issues. As of now, College Board is stating that AP Scores will be released the week of July 15th, so check your accounts that week! To My Incoming AP US History and AP US Government and Politics Students - Welcome to my AP Class! If you have had me before, you are familiar with who I am and what I expect out of my AP classes. In the next week or two, you should expect to see an email sent out to you with an introduction to the class you signed up for, details on how to access all of the Summer Assignments, and some insights from previous students. Please feel free to reach out to me throughout the summer with any questions that you may have. I will be checking and responding to emails a couple times a week. While my courses are rigorous, I can promise you that you will learn a lot and feel more prepared for future AP and college-level courses. I hope everyone has a fun and safe summer!

Ms. Coholic's Science Classes
Hi, Everybody, Congratulations students on finishing another school year! I hope you enjoy your summer break and come back refreshed and ready to take up the challenge of another set of courses in the fall. Together, we will keep working toward that milestone of earning your diploma and a high GPA.

Thank You and Have a Healthy, Happy Summer!
2020 has been a year without rival, which none of us will soon forget. I hope that we can all grow from the year's historic events, and come out on the other side better than we were. Learning opportunities abound between the pandemic and the civil protests amid this pivotal movement of social unrest in our country. These times have not been easy on anyone, as adults juggle the roles of parent, teacher, childcare provider, and student amongst others, as we navigate these uncharted waters and the vicious daily news cycle. Our children have missed out on important milestones and the typical social interactions that they are accustomed to. However, we will overcome together. The English Department would like to thank parents and students for your understanding and collaboration, as we ended the fourth quarter via distance learning. We all had to make adjustments and I'm proud of what our students were able to accomplish given the circumstances. As we transition into the summer, I realize that many of our students will still have questions; fear, anger, and other strong emotions that they need to express. Journaling can be a great way for our students to express their emotions, and make sense of them. I hope you will join me in encouraging all of our children to keep a journal, with no pressure to share their journal entries unless they feel comfortable doing so. Potential journal prompts include: - What would you like others to know about what you are thinking, feeling, and experiencing? - What do you need from others to understand, cope, process, and be safe as these events continue to unfold? - What do you think Martin Luther King Jr. means when he says that “a riot is the language of the unheard?” On behalf of the English Department, please have a safe, healthy, and happy summer, and we look forward to seeing you in the fall!

Chemistry Students Find Answers to Real Life Questions
Chemistry Honors and AP Chemistry students completed a project for quarter four. They applied the principles of chemistry to real world problems. Every student researched and wrote a scientific article. Here are some of the questions: - Is it easier for teenagers to break away from dangerous and addictive drugs than adults? - Is nuclear energy only good for creating harm? - How does nanotechnology use chemistry to interact with the human body? - Is death truly inevitable, or can it be avoided? - Is chocolate a drug? - If biofuel is truly better for the environment, why are we still using so much oil? - Can we make faster vaccines? - How has dental fillings impacted today’s modern world? - Why do energy drinks keep you awake at night? - Does drinking water boost metabolism? and more... Science teachers in CMIT want our students to be curious to conquer the universe around us, asking questions, and doing research to find answers. The science department aims to prepare our students for college in all aspects and this is a college level project.
