Dear 11th-grade Students and Parents, Thank you for the exceptional participation on the SAT Full Lenght Practice Test. Your scores are available for interpretation and review. Just drop me an email at gclarke@cmitacademy.org for a scheduled discussion with our assistant principal, Mr. Avsar, on how to better your results. A better part of the SAT Practice Test preparation goes through getting desirable test scores for college applications and scholarships you will be applying for during the Senior year. Our last Full-Length Practice test is on February 27, 2021, @ 9 am. CMIT patron all Grade 11 for the actual SAT on March 03, 2021. Further details will be sent to all Grade 11.

Photographer of the Week!
Hello CMIT - Did you miss us? We're back with our Photographer of the Week! This week, I'm proud to present our winner... Kennedy Jones!!! Well done Kennedy, your photo is a wonderful example of low-key lighting - which the club members have been working hard on staging at home. Taking these photos are difficult enough, but on top of that hers is a self-portrait! What a talented club member! This week does not go by without note of our honorable mentions: Susan Kamara & Niyah Belton! Their photos are of family members and they too used low-key lighting to give their photos a more dramatic feel. Whether it was staged or outdoors at the perfect moment, there are plenty of ways to work with lighting. Try it for yourself & be sure to follow our Instagram @cmitphotographyclub ! See you next week!
