CMIT BREAKING NEWS (SCHOOLWIDE)
Distance Learning IT Support
As we settle into the new normal of Distance Learning, I wanted to provide some technological help resources that we here at CMIT North HS have put into place recently. On our website (cmitacademy.org/highschool), underneath the "Distance Learning" menu header, you will now find a section titled "Technology Support." This section contains resources and information meant to help resolve technical issues that would otherwise be addressed by me during in-school hours, with information on topics ranging from testing support to troubleshooting Zoom issues. Also included in this tab is a Google Form to be filled out for IT requests that may not be resolved by following some of the other resources provided, such as issues with a student's cmitacademy.org email address. Thank you and stay safe!

Halfway Through the Quarter. Let's Check In.
Hello, Families: We are entering the fifth week of instruction which marks the halfway point in the quarter. This is a good time to take a brief pause and a deep breath and to reflect. What has worked well? What might need an adjustment? Here are some basic reminders that might be useful: SchoolMax - Attendance is updated daily. (There may be a lag on Wednesdays as assignments that are used to track attendance have varying due times throughout the day.) - Grades are updated weekly. (We recommend checking SchoolMax on Mondays.) - Parents and guardians can have different logins and passwords. (Visit this website for information about how parents and guardians can register: https://www.pgcps.org/schoolmax-support/) Google Classroom - Only students can have access to Google Classrooms, but parents and guardians can receive summaries. (Request access from your student's teachers.) Summaries provide information about Missing Work, Upcoming Work, and Class Activities. Attendance - Students are expected to attend live classes every day of the week except Wednesday in order to be counted present. On Wednesdays, students may be asked to attend live sessions, meeting with service providers, or submit assignments in order to be counted present. Students should be engaged in work of some sort every day of the week. - If your student misses class for a lawful reason, please reach out to your student's teacher and front office staff (Ms. Fermin at cfermin@cmitacademy.org or Ms. Richardson at srichardson@cmitacademy.org) within two days of the absences with a note to explain the absence. As educators, we are taking opportunities to reflect on what has worked well and what could be adjusted. Here are two areas where we could use your support. - Set an expectation with student to engage, engage, engage. While they are in class, how are they communicating with teachers that they understand or have questions? Are they using their cameras and microphones? Are they typing in the chat? Are they responding to polls? During face-to-face learning, teachers have the opportunity to observe body language or walk around a classroom to monitor student progress on their assignments. Online teachers are limited to the feedback students are willing to provide. - Remove distractions from your student's environment. Some particularly forthcoming students are sharing that they are not paying attention to class because of access to cell phones and video games or because they are completing work for other classes. In the first case, changing your student's physical environment might be a consideration. In the latter, conversations around organization and time management might be of use. Students are always encouraged to reach out to their teachers with questions or concerns. Their self-advocacy is a strength especially now. By working together, we can stay on track to end the first quarter on a high note. Respectfully,

Ms. Colandrea 9th + 10th Grade Assistant Principal English, MAPS, SPED, + Social Studies Departments

Join FORENSICS/ MOCK TRIAL TEAM
FORENSICS/ MOCK TRIAL TEAM has started and welcomes new members this year. What is Mock Trial? A mock trial is a reenactment of a courtroom trial in which high school students become the lawyers, plaintiffs, defendants, and witnesses of a real court case. They compete against teams from other schools in Mock Trial Circuit 7. The program's objectives are to (1) Further understanding of the law, court procedures, and the legal system; (2) Increase proficiency in soft skills such as listening, speaking, reading and reasoning; and (3) Heighten appreciation for academic studies as well as career consciousness of law-related professions. A mock trial is not a dramatic play, a speech competition, a debate, or a game, though it incorporates facets of all four. Successful mock trial participants possess excellent public speaking skills, an acute ability to think on their feet, a thorough understanding of trial procedures and rules, and a healthy competitive spirit. I hope that you consider joining our team! If you want further information, feel free to attend a meeting or email me. All meetings and competitions are virtual this year. Meetings are held every Wednesday at 3:30 in Mr. Ozdem's Zoom classroom. Before the competition we will meet twice a week. (TBA) This week's meeting is on Wednesday 9/30 at 3:30 pm. Email me to get invitation for the meeting. fozdem@cmitacademy.org VOLUNTEER ADVOCATE is needed to coach the team. Volunteers interested in helping our students to get court experience are welcome.

DEPARTMENT UPDATES
Science Department News
Hi Parents and Students, With online education and virtual classrooms as the means of learning this first semester, all teachers in the Science Department are providing students with Independent Assignments as a way of deepening and re-enforcing their understanding of course content. We know that the virtual environment is not the best for high school science, but our desire is for our students to be the best in PG County and ready for the challenges of college and career. One of the challenges that students may have in keeping grades high are the Independent Assignments. As they comprise 25% of the overall grading for a science course, failure to complete and turn-in the Independent Assignments has a significant effect on a student's grade. An "A student" not completing and turning in the Independent Assignments could find one's Grade Report reflects a "C". Should a student find an Independent Assignment is not understood, or needs clarification about instructions, please ask your son/daughter to email the teacher right away with question(s) so we can help. Also, as you know, attendance is taken on Wednesdays based on the Independent Assignment's completion and its submission as evidence students were engaged in learning and re-enforcing their knowledge. A teacher not receiving an Independent Assignment from a student not only records a grade of zero for that assignment, the Wednesday attendance for that science class is coded absent. Our Science Department is dedicated to providing the best science education we can and encouraging growth in our students. Please feel free to email the appropriate teacher with any concerns you may have about a student's progress.

Family Support: Discussing School Cyber Safety With Your Student
As we move forward with virtual learning this semester, it is important to take time to discuss cyber safety and engagement in the classroom with your student. CMIT's School Counseling Team recommends taking time to explore your student's internet habits by having a conversation. Consider discussing the following questions with your student to learn more about what their experience has been like so far online, and use this as an opportunity to engage your student in thinking more critically about ways to maintain internet safety. 1) How have you been feeling about turning on your camera or microphone in class? What has prevented you from doing that? 2) Internet safety and maintaining privacy online is so important. What sorts of rules do you try to follow to ensure you're being safe online? Note: Now would be a great time to talk to your students about the school rules that prohibit recording other students or taking screenshots and pictures of classmates during Zoom classes. While we have discussed these rules with students, your support is also meaningful. 3) How have you been connecting with your friends outside of class? What sorts of applications are you using to socialize during the day? 4) If something uncomfortable happens in class or on these apps, how would you typically handle it? What could you do? Note: If your student does not know the answer to this, remind them that staff at CMIT North still can collect bullying/harassment referrals virtually, and students can let their teacher, counselor, administrator, or another trusted adult know about the activities to get support! We do our best to maintain confidentiality when receiving reports of bullying or harassment amongst students, so as to protect the privacy of those reporting the incidents. If you have more questions about how to encourage safe habits while engaging virtually, please feel free to reach out to your student's professional school counselor! Ms. Gaudette is supporting students with last names A-J, and Ms. Ryan is supporting students with last names K-Z. Stay safe!

Physical Education Classes
Parents of students taking Personal Fitness, I want to inform you that next week and beyond you may see your student sitting at the computer, in a comfortable position, or maybe laying down with their eyes closed. Don't be alarmed I will have instructed them to so as we are working on stress management techniques. In class we are working on decreasing our stress levels. Already we have done some breathing activities and from the feedback I have received students feel like the few minutes of concentrated breathing has decreased their and made them feel better. We are also going to be doing some yoga starting next week as well so if your student asks for a space with more room or a quieter space this is the reason. For anyone interested in improving their health SHAPE AMERICA has released their calendar for a healthy October. Each day listed has something that can help you to better your health.
