CMIT BREAKING NEWS (SCHOOLWIDE)
Principal's Message - Parent Survey
Dear CMIT North High School Parents and Guardians, We are reaching out to you through this survey to gather your intentions regarding your child or children returning to in-person hybrid instruction when schools reopen for the remainder of the school year. Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) is providing the option for parents and guardians to choose between continuing with at-home full distance learning or returning to in-person hybrid instruction. Hybrid instruction means part-time in-person instruction and part-time at-home learning. Students will be in school for two days each week. Information on full-distance learning, in-person hybrid instruction, and the school reopening plan can be found on the PGCPS website. When responding to this survey, you are committing to how your child will receive instruction for the remainder of the school year. Responses to this survey may not be altered once submitted. If the virtual option is selected, your child must remain in distance learning for the remainder of the school year. Please take the time to answer the survey. You will be prompted to complete a survey for each child within your household. The deadline to complete the survey is Sunday, February 28, 2021. If a parent/guardian does not complete the survey by the February 28, 2021 deadline, the system will select your child for in-person hybrid instruction through the last day of school.

Photographer of the Week
Hello CMIT! Photographer of the Week is... Ella Solomon! Nice work Ella! In our second monochrome challenge, Ella was able to stage an aesthetically pleasing image using household items! Mint green is such a beautiful color, but in my opinion, the best part of this photo is the ripples of light that reflect off the mug giving the illusion that it is sitting in water. Our honorable mentions go to Kennedy Johnson & Hafsah Ghori! Kennedy's photo gives us cozy vibes and makes you feel like you can relax after a long day. Hafsah's photoshoots don't use props as a subject, but people. The edits and lighting give it that monochrome feel. Congrats everyone! Stay tuned for our next Photographer of the Week & be sure to follow us on Instagram @cmitphotographyclub

Anime Club Black History Month "Black Characters in Anime" Showcase
The many efforts of the students and staff at CMIT to celebrate Black History Month have inspired Anime Club to make sure we participate and contribute as well! So far this month, Anime Club has watched anime featuring prominent black leads, designed or worked on by black creatives, and looked into black run animation teams such as the first black-owned animation studio in Japan named D'art Shtajio. In an effort to highlight and share some of these black representations in anime, Anime Club members were challenged to select one of their favorite black characters in anime and detail what made that character so great. We collected those examples into our own "Black Characters in Anime - Black History Month Showcase" to share with all of you! Please find a Google slides presentation of our final Black History Month showcase, created through the combined efforts of more than 15 anime club members, linked at the end of this post. Everyone did an awesome job of finding a wide variety of excellent black characters in anime, both male and female, without a single duplicate or repeat! So please enjoy and feel free to review each slide recommendation section to see if that show might be a good match for you!

Social Studies Department News
The Social Studies Department would like to help make communication and scheduling appointments during Office Hours on Wednesdays easier. Please click on the attached PDF link (not the image above), and once you open the PDF, you can click on the image for the teacher that you are interested in meeting with to schedule an appointment. This Week in History: February 22, 1956 - In Montgomery, Alabama, 80 participants in the three-month-old bus boycott voluntarily gave themselves up for arrest after an ultimatum from white city leaders. Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks were among those arrested. Later in 1956, the U.S. Supreme Court mandated desegregation of the buses. February 23, 1868- African American educator and leader W.E.B. Du Bois (1868-1963) was born in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. February 24, 1867 - The House of Representatives voted to impeach President Andrew Johnson. The vote followed bitter opposition by the Radical Republicans in Congress toward Johnson's reconstruction policies in the South. However, the effort to remove him failed in the Senate by just one vote. February 25, 1910- Millicent Fenwick (1910-1992) was born in New York City. She championed liberal causes, serving as a member of the U.N. General Assembly and as a U.S. Congresswoman. February 26, 1994 - Political foes of Russian President Boris Yeltsin were freed by a general amnesty granted by the new Russian Parliament. *Information for each day came from: https://www.historyplace.com/specials/calendar/february.htm

Ms. Coholic's Science Classes
Hi students and parents, Last Friday, BioGeoChem students took a 7-point quiz. Due to inclement weather, some houses lost internet service and/or had a power failure. Those students can make up the quiz on Wednesday, Feb. 24 at 12 noon by logging into their zoom classroom. Students with excused absences may also make up the quiz at that time. Physics students will continue building on basic circuitry knowledge this week.
