UPCOMING EVENTS
One CMIT, ONE EARTH advocating STEM
On Thursday, during our second period (which may run a little over the third period), of April 22, 2021, the Green School will be hosting a live presentation over our CMIT Youtube channel to highlight environmental issues across the planet and demonstrate support for environmental protection. CMIT second-period teachers will tune in to the CMIT youtube channel to broadcast the program in their respective classrooms, and students will log in to support the hybrid learning setting. All students will have a chance to blog or interact during the event to let everyone know about protecting and restoring our planet. During the live presentation which Morgan Pringle and Moncrief Peyton will host, three speakers from the following will highlight the show: 1. Retired Brigadier General Deborah Y. Howell, who held various United States military command and staff positions, including Project Officer from the National Guard Bureau, ARP-M, Arlington, Virginia, and Adjutant General of the United States Virgin Islands. Retired Brig. Gen. Howell advocates for a values-driven, sustainable culture that stays current with ever-changing but critical local, regional, national, and international environmental policies. 2. Eric Moberg, Strategic Program Manager of the Potomac Electric Power Company (PEPCO), which is a public utility that supplies electric power to the city of Washington, D.C., and surrounding communities in Maryland. His skills include but not limited to Renewable Energy, Efficiency, and Environmental Sustainability. 3. Dawn Hawkins-Nixon, P.E., CPM, Associate Director from Sustainability Division of the Maryland Department of Education. Director Hawkins will conduct live-streaming STEM hands-on practices to demonstrate and engage the CMIT community on Agriculture. The Green school will also announce the STEM Environmental Logo creator winners and show the CMIT Video Green School campaign. Lastly, as part of the celebrations, Science students will show short environmental drive films during the morning announcement for the whole week.

Leaning Ukulele is fun and exciting!
After getting enough of the song " Love me Tender," where students familiarized themselves with the tab Bm and Bbm... we will now proceed to tabs Em and Dm. We would make the strumming pattern of D-D-D-D. (D=Downward strum.) Another pattern would be a D-D-D-D pattern on the up-beat or the part of the beat between two downbeats. If you would like to join us, please meet every Monday, 3:30-4:30 pm, or email gclarke@cmitacademy.org. New ukulele members are on the pattern of C tabs.

GRADE LEVEL UPDATES
CMIT Spirit-Wear is Here!
Thank you to those who supported the Class of 2022's previous attempt at a spirit-wear sale. As we did not meet the minimum requirements for number of items sold, we did not have those items produced and customers were issued a refund. This time you WILL get your CMIT gear! The good news is that there are now many more options available. Also, if you are interested in selling gear to your classmates, friends, and family, there are student incentive prizes for selling a certain number of items. The sale is only open for a short period of time, so get your spirit-wear while you can and show your Tiger pride! https://fancloth.shop/RZLCW

Environmental Science - Fourth Quarter
This fourth quarter we will focus on the following objectives: 1. Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the availability of natural resources, the occurrence of natural hazards, and climate changes have influenced human activity. 2. Analyze geoscience data and the results from global climate models to make an evidence-based forecast of the current rate of global or regional climate change and associated future Projects, Classworks, and articles for Claim-Evidence-Reasoning assignments will be focused on Renewable energy that plays a central role in the post-COVID-19 economic recovery, including the global picture.
