CMIT UPCOMING EVENTS (SCHOOLWIDE)
Parent Academy #4 - Presentation Amended Copy
Greetings CMIT Family, This is a heartfelt thank you to all who came out to join us this past Thursday for our fourth Parent Academy on effective engagement during distance learning. In particular, we’d like to thank all those who doubled up Thursday to attend both the PTO meeting and the Parent Academy. We appreciate your involvement and perseverance as we strove to negotiate the rescheduling and delayed start. We’d also like to thank our student participants and their parents, whose consent to use their students’ thoughtwork as a framework for this discussion. To those who were unable to attend, we’re sorry to have missed you. But please feel free to reach out with your questions and concerns. You can reach me directly at cbevard@cmitacademy.org to share. In order to make our work as accessible as possible, we’re attaching a PDF rendering of our presentation. To ensure fidelity to our agreement with parents and students, we’ve redacted the clips with student participants, since our agreement was to share voices and images as part of the session itself. Student names have also been extracted in the attached PDF to avoid blasting identifying information out into the internet. The slides which are primarily valuable to parents and guardians are found on pages 6, 7, 8, 11, and 12, but especially essential are the key takeaways and checklist. You may find these on pages 9 and 13. We hope to see again for our next iteration of the Parent Academy!

All the Best! Mr. Bevard

DEPARTMENT UPDATES
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: March 1, 1961 - President John F. Kennedy established the Peace Corps, an organization sending young American volunteers to developing countries to assist with health care, education and other basic human needs. March 2, 1943 - During World War II in the Pacific, a Japanese convoy was attacked by 137 American bombers as the Battle of Bismarck Sea began. The convoy included eight destroyers and eight transports carrying 7,000 Japanese soldiers heading toward New Guinea. Four destroyers and all eight transports were sunk, resulting in 3,500 Japanese drowned, ending Japanese efforts to send reinforcements to New Guinea. March 3, 1913 - A women's suffrage march in Washington D.C. was attacked by angry onlookers while police stood by. The march occurred the day before Woodrow Wilson's inauguration. Many of the 5,000 women participating were spat upon and struck in the face as a near riot ensued. Secretary of War Henry Stimson then ordered soldiers from Fort Myer to restore order. March 4, 1789 - The first meeting of the new Congress under the new U.S. Constitution took place in New York City. March 5, 1946 - The "Iron Curtain" speech was delivered by Winston Churchill at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri. Churchill used the term to describe the boundary in Europe between free countries of the West and nations of Eastern Europe under Soviet Russia's control. *Information for each day came from: https://www.historyplace.com/specials/calendar/march.htm

Black Mathematicians Research Project
Greeting CMIT Family, Hope this email finds you well and healthy. This month's project assignment was to research and present a Black Mathematician how to contribute math and to impact other mathematicians under such hard life conditions since February is Black History Month. I am so happy to announce my students put all their group and individual effort to make fantastic presentations. It was inspirational, and I believe they have found new role models to impact their lives positively. Maybe we can see new phenomenal mathematicians from CMIT students soon. Thank you to all my students for your participation and hard work! And Thank you to all the parents and guardians for their collaboration and support! So what will be the new project? ( Hint: Look at the calendar, what do you see on March 8th?) I will announce the new project next week, so exciting! Have a great week! Stay connected!
