EXTRACURRICULARS
Team Illusion Prepares to Deploy Weather Station
Team illusion is preparing to place a weather station in front of the school. This may seem an odd sort of thing for a robotics team to do, but bear with me on this. We normally find out if it is raining or cold or windy by sticking our head out the door and seeing if it gets wet. Having a robot do this for us would give us a chance to find out what the weather is like before we go out the door. Seriously, we are using this station to practice picking up a data stream and parsing useful information from it. This will be of value in gathering data on the 1,200 mile road race for which we are gearing up. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1yt5F3DxoQJ_ka2MmNFaHw2DmF5sDXwCz/view?usp=sharing You might also have seen students in the club tooling around in the parking lot on a Razor Electric Ground Force Drifter. We are preparing to add solar powe to the car to see how far we can get with a small vehicle like that. Congratulations are in order for our new club officers.

Mathmagicians
Greetings CMIT Family, I hope you all well and healthy. I would like to wrap up the few weeks' news and updates. What happened with Mathmagicians club last one month? We started to this school year very fast. Students practice with the previous year's competitions and contests, and compete in class matches and with other schools in different states in statewide and national-wide competitions, but most importantly, they challenge themselves. Here are the competitions and the competition schedule: October 5th : Math Madness against Darlington High School, Rome, GA. October 12th : Math Madness against Pioneer Valley Chinese Immersion Charter High School, Hadley, MA. October 12th : Math League - October 2021 Contest October 19th: Math Madness against Douglas High School, Minden, NV. October 20th: University of Maryland (UMD) High School Math Competition We also compete in different areas: we went to a Bowling Alley and got so much fun two weeks ago, on Saturday October 16th. Last week's activity was "Logic/Grid Puzzle". We enjoyed 3 different level of logic puzzles. How about you, can you solve it? Are you ready to this challenge? If you are curios what is happening in Mathmagicians club, you can stop by the room 208 after school on Tuesdays 3-5pm and on Saturdays at 9am-1pm. Stay cool and do math!

A letter to the CMIT Village from The staff at "The Den: Literary Magazine"
Golden Tigers, Do you know how HARD it is to start a Literary Magazine? They say the hardest job on earth is being a mother. Have you ever run a high school literary magazine? Any club? Or been involved with one at all? Now, before you tell me how wrong you think I am, let’s draw some comparisons. A club in high school is a baby everybody's fine with telling you is ugly. You create it, give it attention, watch it grow, and even celebrate its milestones. It won’t literally vomit on your shirt while you cradle it, but figuratively?-- that’s another story. Most kids at least have survival instincts. Not clubs. They take constant love, nurturing, guidance, and a level of commitment that goes beyond expectations. 18 years to raise a child? That’s nothing. If only we had that luxury. An hour a week, sometimes two? At that rate sponsors might as well join the flight of the Valkyrie. Either way, kids? Clubs? They take a village, so, yes, PLEASE tell us about Tanner and the pee wee baseball game; We’re DYING to know how valiantly he struck out. Really. For the students who are more creatively inclined, we are always looking for a good story, but it doesn’t stop there! I don’t think I’ve ever been more captivated than when a charming, eccentric, and knowledgeable teenager pleads me to read their latest collection of Neo-Shakespearian-inspired sonnets. Join the staff. Share a story. Submit some art. Or, if you feel curious, play one of the games. Keep an eye out for the topics, tasks, and clues, or choose your own. Also “raising” a club will look good on your resume. (staff submissions welcome) Contact: TheDen@cmitacademy.org With the utmost respect for the hard work and sacrifices of the adults in our lives, Sincerely, The Den Staff

DEPARTMENT UPDATES
What's happening in the Art Room?
Students were busy creating garlands for Hispanic Heritage month (September 15 - October 15). The beautiful garlands include colorful sugar skulls and traditional Mexican tissue paper flowers. These garlands are assembled and will be hung just in time for Dia de los Muertos, which we studied in class before making the garlands. During Dia de los Muertos in the first week of November, families create colorful decorations such as sugar skulls and flowers to celebrate their dead loved ones. Here are some pictures of the process of this project. Pictures of the final garlands hanging in the school coming soon!
