Your best behavior and wonderful participation had encouraged more supporters and sponsors to come to our Saturday Academy - Students Special Learning Development. Your certificates will be awarded as soon as your name will be printed on them. It was an exciting event that attendees learned a hands-on approach to building turbines, circuits, and motors.

CMIT UPCOMING EVENTS (SCHOOLWIDE)
Bullying Prevention and Student Safety
Greeting CMIT Family, October was National Bullying Prevention Month, but our work to make CMIT Academy North High School a safe place for everyone will take place throughout the school year. In that effort, we as members of our school community must understand what bullying really is. What Is Bullying Behavior? Bullying is the chronic infliction of physical hurt and/or psychological distress on another person, usually through an imbalance of power. Bullying can involve direct physical contact, verbal attacks intended to cause emotional harm, or indirect actions of social aggression intended to embarrass or isolate. Verbal or social bullying can be just as damaging, or even more so, than physical bullying. Although traditional forms of bullying are more common, cyberbullying has taken bullying to a new level of intensity. Using interactive technologies, such as text messages and social media Web sites, cyberbullying can occur around the clock, and the text or images can be widely disseminated, well beyond school grounds. If you would like to know more about what bullying is and the role all members of our community must take to make CMIT a safe place, please attend the Virtual Meeting for PGCPS Families on Bullying Prevention and Student Safety taking place Tuesday, Nov. 16, 2021| 6:30 p.m. PANEL TOPICS Safe learning environments Student rights & responsibilities Mental health supports Restorative practices Peer mediation How parents can help Join the meeting: https://pgcps-org.zoom.us/j/86283612239 Meeting ID: 862 8361 2239 Dial In: 301-715-8592

EXTRACURRICULARS
Guest Speaker For "Girls in Tech" Club
Over the past few weeks, Gabrielle Pierce and I have given the members a brief introduction to technology including terms commonly used in STEAM, flowcharts, loops, and python. We have been focused on teaching the members python so far since it is widely used in the STEAM field. The members have learned how to print simple lines of code, use variables, reassign variables, use expressions, etc. After the members gained a sense of what python was and learned the introductory codes, the members were assigned a short project. This week we will have a guest speaker to speak about her career and how it is working in the technology field as a woman. Here is a little bit about her: Dr. Washington is a full-time Professor at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte Belk College of Business School and an Information Systems Director at Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity. She has worked in the information technology management space for over a decade, where she actively leads non-profit organizations towards revamping and improving their infrastructures. She’s volunteered on technology committees for many non-profit organizations, assisting them with making strides towards improving their technology efforts. She considers herself to be a motivational speaker, youth and young adult mentor, advocate for women in STEM empowerment and accessibility inclusion.

Sincerely, Ashley Tchokote - Vice President Gabrielle Pierce - President

Anime Club - Inktober Submissions
Reminder: This Monday 11/15 10th and 11th graders will be meeting in Room 222 from 3-4 PM. All other grades will meet next week. Anime Club has been going strong with our weekly meetings and so far we have watched 9 different anime this year across all grades. You can find a list of those anime later in this post. We also had two of our members, Raven Effah-Appiah (color image) and Emanuel Miranda-Mota (uncolored submissions), submit some awesome drawings for our Inktober illustration challenge! You can find those submissions above (my apologies for the late posting and sub-par photography!). The beginning of the year has been expectedly chaotic with make-up testing and reacclimating to being in person once again, but we have established our norms for the club and I am excited to see what we can accomplish moving forward. Once we have made it past the end of the quarter I think we will be ready to refocus and start working on our next big goal or project. Anime Club - Anime List as of 11/13 - Full Metal Alchemist - Hunter X Hunter - Demon Slayer - Death Note - Kuroko's Basketball - Komi Can't Communicate - Shaman King - Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans - Pacific Rim: The Black

Tiger Gaming Updates
Reminder: Xbox and PC players will be meeting this Tuesday 11/16 in Room 222 from 3-4 PM. Nintendo will meet again next week. Tiger Gaming continues to find its stride as we compete and connect over video games. Last week we had our second Super Smash Brothers tournament that had even more competitors than the last! Shawn Conley was our first winner a couple weeks ago and remains in the Top 6 for our most recent tournament that will finish up next time Nintendo players meet. I decided to dust off my controller and join the fray this past week making it into the Top 6 myself, but I'll need to up my game as I am Shawn's next opponent! The remaining 4 competitors looking to unseat Shawn are: Rameses Peyton, Jalen Powell, Jerome Moses, and Babtunde (Sam) Morafa. In our last Xbox and PC meeting a couple weeks ago members were informed of how they could start signing up individually for tournaments using Generation Esports. If you are interested in competing solo or in teams you are able to sign up yourself at generationesports.com . We will share more information about how you can sign up, what types of competitions are available, how we can continue to practice outside of club hours, an how to join our team on the website in our next meetings. For our Smash Bros., Rocket League and League of Legends players I have spoken with a representative from Play Vs. about possibilities for joining their Spring Season. I will be continuing to review and research that information before bringing it to administration. Once we have a better understanding of what we can accomplish as a staff, I will provide more information to the club. For now, lets keep competing and improving! We'll get the competitions figured out along the way.
