CMIT UPCOMING EVENTS (SCHOOLWIDE)
Application Open for Johns Hopkins Biomedical Engineering Program
Give your talented math and science students the confidence to own, shape, and decide their future. Introduce them to Johns Hopkins Biomedical Engineering Innovation where we are reimagining engineering - one future at a time. The application (https://ei.jhu.edu/apply/application-materials/) is now open for the Spring Session: January 25 - April 23, 2021. "The best part of this module was continously remodeling my project and learning through trial and error until I got the result I wanted as it felt satisfying when I reached my end product." Created by Johns Hopkins faculty, this fully online course is designed to be equally challenging, collaborative, interactive as it is fun. Students will model human efficiency, the cardiovascular system, and design experiments to test these models and more. And students have the opportunity to earn college credit. Like you, we understand the importance of stimulating the inner drive of students and giving them access to opportunities to ignite this. That's why, together, we can reimagine the future of engineering. Please take a look at the requirements and share BMEI with parents and students. Contact us with any questions (https://ei.jhu.edu/contact/). Sincerely, Johns Hopkins University Engineering Innovation Programs Biomedical Engineering Innovation

As parents and school staff, let's continue to work together to prevent and stop bullying.

9th Grade News | Introducing the Big 8!
Hello, 9th Grade Families! The 9th grade team is excited to introduce you to the Big Eight as a means of infusing character building into our instructional curriculum. On roughly a monthly basis, we will meet with students to introduce one of the expectations listed below. After introducing and discussing the expectation with students, we will apply what we have learned by participating in short activities. In addition to building character, these meetings will offer a relaxed non-instructional environment for students to connect with their teachers, administrator, and classmates - something many of us are missing in this virtual environment. More information about the Big Eight is to come. You will find it in your email. THE BIG EIGHT - Accountability - Boldness - Communication - Curiosity - Diligence - Execution - Gratitude - Optimism We look forward to working with you in this capacity!

EXTRACURRICULARS
Anime Club Kicks it Old School
Anime Club has been working to find its stride over the last couple weeks as we navigated the difficulties of watching anime as a group online and establishing convenient but secure methods of online discussion. However, much like the anime protagonists we love to watch, we did not let these obstacles stop us for long! So far the club has rewatched or been introduced to recent fan favorites like "Fire Force" and "Demon Slayer" as we explored the popular shonen genre. This week we hopped in our time machines to kick it old school with classics like 1992's "Yu Yu Hakusho" and 2000s "Inuyasha". The road ahead is long and we do not always know exactly where it will take us, but we remain anxious to explore new genres, themes, and projects as we continue our adventures through anime.

CMIT LEAD
Last week in CMIT LEAD, we started talking more about our values, focusing on the leadership element of "consciousness of self." We did an activity around our values, and our members identified the leadership value they feel is most important. Here is what some of our members had to say! “My most important value is ACHIEVEMENT. A leader's goal is to accomplish an achievement, therefore a leader without any achievements has failed as a leader. Although you may have been kind, caring, and compassionate, you will always be known as a failed leader that never achieved their goal.” “A value that I think is of utmost importance is FLEXIBILITY. Flexibility means you are able to work in all kinds of situations, regardless of the kind of person you define yourself as. In order to work on my flexibility, I plan on being very open-minded and seeing things from all possible frameworks in order to focus on the greater good.” "OPEN-MINDEDNESS is a crucial aspect to keep in mind for a leader, as it builds character upon criticism, and widens their point of view for certain topics in order to build a better tomorrow." “The value of a leader that I think is the most significant would have to be HONESTY. If you are a leader who deceives others or manipulates them, you will be unable to gain the trust of others which ultimately causes people to fail to rely on you and trust you when they should. I think honesty can also ultimately at least link most of the values of a leader together. As a growing leader, I would say that in order to practice this value, I need to practice being honest and telling the truth, even if the truth is hard.” “I believe that SPIRITUALITY is one of the most important values a leader can have. A person's morals, ethics, and belief system should set up a path for them to follow and lead by.” “I believe that every leader should have the value of COMPASSION because in order to be a strong leader you should care about your followers. I will continue to compassion in my everyday life.” Interested in joining? Complete the Interest Form! https://forms.gle/V31gAowqbQmjkZ9t5

Science Department
Greetings! This week, the science department thinks it would be fun for the students to don a favorite costume (keeping in line with the PGCPS code of conduct for appearance). For those classes in which cameras are operational and/or required, you may also see a teacher in costume! Students may also change their avatars to something spooky, but festive. Remember: Candy Corn is a 'thing'! Have a great week!
