Virtual VEX Robotics Club
The VEX Robotics team reviews the current VEX challenge, and then starts designing their robot. They build their design and test it out several times. The team attends several competitions. Depending on the outcome, they could advance to a state competition or even VEX Robotics World Championship. This year, we will focus on the online challenges in order to win an automatic team qualification for this season's VEX Robotics World Championship. We will provide VEX Robotics Clawbot Kits to five students. Details will be discussed in our online meetings. Being on a VEX team is a commitment. The team needs to meet at least twice each week after school to design, build, test, rework, and get ready for competitions. They might even meet more than twice a week as they get close to a competition day. The VEX team CANNOT have members who do not attend the weekly practices because the team needs everyone contributing to their engineering design process so that they can be successful. Students from Grades 9-12 may participate. Club enrollment is first come first serve basis. Please complete this form: https://forms.gle/DCxN9JUv9oKF8GZ86 Completing this form will not guarantee your enrollment. Coach: Mr. B (Computer Science Teacher) When: Tuesday and Thursday @ 3:00pm - 4:00pm

HS UPCOMING EVENTS
Parent Teacher Conferences - Monday, October 12th
Parent Teacher Conferences are Monday, October 12th from 8:00 to 3:00. We will be holding all conferences through video call. We will be using a new platform built for parent-teacher conferences: cmitnorthhs.meettheteacher.com Attached is a guide on how to book appointments. Key things to know: -Appointments are a first come first serve basis. If a teacher or counselor is fully booked there is a waiting list that you can join and if the teacher or counselor has time, he/she will set that up with you. -You can use this platform on a computer or smartphone or tablet. -When you log in, make sure to type your student's name exactly as it is in SchoolMAX. (For example, if your student's last name is Smith-Jones in SchoolMAX, Smith - Jones will not work. Make sure that in the spacing and hyphen are exactly the same as SchoolMAX.) This needs to be done correctly because the platform will link your email to your student's classes and teachers. -If you have multiple students at CMIT North HS, please log in using one student's name and then you can add the other student's teachers on the Choose Teachers section. -If multiple parents want to be on the same conference with a teacher, they will need to be at the same device during the appointment. -All appointments are 10 minutes per teacher per student. When you join the call, you will notice a timer at the top. Once the time is up, the video will close out. Because of this, it is extremely important that you are on time to your appointments. If after the 10 minutes, you would like to speak further with that teacher, you will need to reach out via email to set up a separate time to talk. -Each time you go to the website, you will need to enter in your name, email, student's name and student's date of birth. How to attend appointments over video call: https://support.meettheteacher.com/article/803-video-parents-how-to-attend-appointments-over-video-call If you are having issues with video appointments: https://support.meettheteacher.com/article/811-video-troubleshooting-camera-and-microphone-access

Autumn is In the Air!
Autumn is the favorite season of many, present company included. My firstborn daughter is named Autumn because my wife and I love the season so much. Many authors and poets have also found the season to be quite inspirational. Take a look at these two poems, courtesy of the autumnal muse: Nothing Gold Can Stay Nature’s first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf’s a flower; But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf. So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day. Nothing gold can stay. -Robert Frost _________________________________________________ A Sunset of the City Already I am no longer looked at with lechery or love. My daughters and sons have put me away with marbles and dolls, Are gone from the house. My husband and lovers are pleasant or somewhat polite And night is night. It is a real chill out, The genuine thing. I am not deceived, I do not think it is still summer Because sun stays and birds continue to sing. It is summer-gone that I see, it is summer-gone. The sweet flowers indrying and dying down, The grasses forgetting their blaze and consenting to brown. It is a real chill out. The fall crisp comes. I am aware there is winter to heed. There is no warm house That is fitted with my need. I am cold in this cold house this house Whose washed echoes are tremulous down lost halls. I am a woman, and dusty, standing among new affairs. I am a woman who hurries through her prayers. Tin intimations of a quiet core to be my Desert and my dear relief Come: there shall be such islanding from grief, And small communion with the master shore. Twang they. And I incline this ear to tin, Consult a dual dilemma. Whether to dry In humming pallor or to leap and die. Somebody muffed it? Somebody wanted to joke. -Gwendolyn Brooks

Science Department News
Hi everyone! The Science Department met this past week. One of the topics included Letters of Recommendation. With the college application process in full swing, this is a hot topic. When a student needs a letter from a teacher, the student should first email the teacher (one selected who knows the student pretty well and could provide a letter relevant to the student's desired request; e.g., intended college major, desire for a scholarship, recommendation for an internship, or honorary society, etc.). If the teacher agrees to compose the letter, it is always helpful if the student provides a 'brag sheet', resume, or list of relevant accomplishments. The student should reach out to the teacher as soon as possible with the request. If the teacher agrees, the student should provide the aforementioned documentation quickly so that the teacher can plan time to write a personalized letter. If the due date for such letters is too close, or the teacher doesn't know the student's abilities in science, the teacher may decline, and the student should make the request of another teacher. As you can understand, asking the 2 days before a due date is not practical. We strive to turn out students who are ready for the challenges of college, technical schools, internships, and employment. Providing letters recommending for our students is but one of the proud moments for CMIT and the Science Department. It is our students who put the 'feathers of pride in our hats'!

English 11-Ms. O'Donnell
As we continue our theme on FREEDOM, PROTEST AND CHANGE in class, we will begin our novel study of DEAR MARTIN by Nic Stone on TUESDAY,OCTOBER 13th. It is a powerful story that will resonates with students. Here is the summary from the School Library Journal: Justyce is an African American teen caught between two worlds. He knows that the education he's receiving at a private school will grant him more economic opportunities, however he begins to question the effects his private school education on his own identity. Some of his classmates believe that the racial pendulum has swung too far, giving African Americans an unfair advantage over their white counterparts. The kids he grew up with believe Justyce has assimilated too much and has forgotten where he came from. He questions his blackness, his relationship with his biracial girlfriend, and his attraction to his white debate partner Sarah Jane. Through a series of journal entries, Justyce attempts to figure out his place in the world by exploring the life of Dr. Martin Luther King. A violent altercation between a retired white police officer and his best friend causes Justyce to examine what it means to be an African American male in 2017. The length and pace of this well-written story make it a perfect read for reluctant and sophisticated readers alike. The main characters are well balanced and will resonate with teens. However, the voice of African American women is largely absent from the narrative. The characterization of Justyce's mother and his girlfriend are one-dimensional compared to some of the other protagonists. Still, this important work should be read alongside Jason Reynolds's and Brendan Kiely's All-American Boys and Kekla Magoon's How It Went Down. VERDICT An good choice for school and public libraries.—Desiree Thomas, Worthington Library, OH The book will be available for free online through google classroom, but if you would like to purchase it here is the ISBN: ISBN-10 : 1101939524 ISBN-13 : 978-1101939529 We will also be listening to the audiobook version during some of our class time. I am excited about the dialogue this can inspire during our zoom classes.
