Morning Drop Off : LEFT Lane DROP OFF!
Greetings! We appreciate your cooperation, parents and guardians, during the morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up. Here are a few tips and reminders! Please use the LEFT lane to drop off and the RIGHT lane to exit. We're also suggesting that scholars sit on the left side in the back of cars so they can quickly and safely exit on the left side of the vehicle. Students must use the sidewalk and crosswalks as they proceed to the cafeteria entrance. Students may be dropped off BEFORE they get to the cafeteria doors. We're asking drivers to keep moving forward and when traffic stops, they can allow scholars to safely exit on the left. Again, be sure to use the LEFT lane to drop off! The right lane is for cars to exit and we are seeing an increase in the number of parents dropping off from the wrong lane. Thanks again for keeping our scholars safe and following our procedures.

JOIN "WRIGHT STUFF" - BALSA PLANE CLUB
Dear Students, Another fantastic STEM club is about to start: Wright Stuff - Balsa Plane Club under the leadership of Mr. Coplan who is a professor at UMD Collegeboard! Students participating in the Wright Stuff, one of the activities of the Science Olympiad, will build long-duration indoor planes and, through testing and experiments, learn to maximize the time in the air. Building and flying Wright Stuff planes is interesting, rewarding and students learn new and useful skills. CMIT has a tradition of placing first in invitational and regional Wright Stuff competitions in the state. 2 club members whose planes fly the longest will have a chance to compete at Science Olympiad invitational and regional tournaments to defend our gold medal. If you want to make a balsa plane that can fly up to a few minutes, join this club?

CMIT CELEBRATES AMERICA RECYCLES DAY 2021
November 16, 2021, CMIT celebrated America Recycle Day, led by the Green School Club. There was live streaming during the First period through all classes about Green School Sustainability programs. Teachers were requested to log in to CMIT media. In addition, all science classes from the second period to the eighth period had literacy lessons led by the green school members. - Students wore GREEN tops. - Teachers and Staff wear green/ green accessories to show their support for Environmental Sustainability. - Green masks were distributed to all staff and students on the same date. - Parents turned to CMIT social media. - It was a wonderful opportunity for all students, staff, and parents, and our community to understand the Green School program CMIT North High School is a Green School certified by Maryland Association for Environmental and Outdoor Education (MAEOE), Maryland, USA. This year, our school projects include building the green garden, a living umbrella, increase our school literacy and sustainability, apply for Green school scholarships, and fly a green school flag. Thank you for all your support. (Videos, photos, and more information are available on our school website.

TUTORING AND ACADEMIC SERVICES, OPPOTUNITIES TO HEIGHTENED STUDENTS LEARNING
Sometimes we feel it's awkward or cumbersome to think we are being tutored; however, after the QUARTER 1 GRADES and issues like difficulty submitting work on Canvas, too long being in virtual learning, and other things, students should consider getting help. CMIT Tutoring & Academic Services gives free assistance to improve grades, support academic challenges, and basic homework help. We have high-caliber tutors benefiting anyone struggling with a difficult subject. In addition, our tutors have approaches centered on students' strengths to help them feel less stressed about the subject. Finally, our tutor can customize the program to tailor your needs to pass your course, including honors and & AP courses. They can help develop basic study habits and strategies that can use in the student's essential skills. Parents may request for tutoring schedule. However, students must attend classes regularly with a specific schedule (each session or tutoring time is 1 hour) Ninety-eight percent of the students who avail tutoring from Progress 1 to Quarter 1 had improved their grades. (data will be furnished in the next newsletter and on our school website) Note: Any student who receives grades are below 60% after Quarter 1 cannot attend the after-school club or athletics. Therefore, please take the opportunity to impact your academic success by taking tutoring advantage.

Picture day make up is scheduled for December 7th. Students who did not have their pictures taken on October 25th can have their picture taken on this date. Students MUST wear their CMIT OXFORD for individual pictures. The Yearbook Staff does not have enough oxfords to share with students. Our sizes are too small for many of our students. Therefore, we are asking you to purchase your own oxford OR borrow an oxford from another family for pictures. Club pictures can be in regular uniform. Sport/Athletic pictures will be in their team uniform. ALL STUDENTS WHO WISH TO BE IN THE 2021-2022 YEARBOOK MUST COMPLETE A PUBLICITY RELEASE FORM. If we do not have a publicity release form on file for your student, THEY CANNOT BE IN ANY PICTURES IN THE YEARBOOK. Here is the link in case you need it: https://cmitacademy.org/highschool/2021/10/05/pgcps-student-publicity-release-form/ If you have any questions, please let me know.

SENIOR PICTURE INFORMATION
Hello Class of 2022 parents! First of all, thank you for being so patient as we work with a new yearbook/photography company this year. The supply chain issues have had an impact on them, as well staffing issues, but we are working hard to get things scheduled. Secondly, Senior Portraits are scheduled for DECEMBER 14-17TH. You should have received the link to reserve a time for pictures. The scheduled time is only 10 minutes because the only pictures that will be taken on these days are the CAP AND GOWN and the TUX AND DRAPE. Since these are the pictures we will need for yearbook, and the picture package that is ordered the most, we are starting with those poses. The casual pose and athletic pose picture date will be scheduled for January. By scheduling it this way, we are able to keep contact limited and not have students gathering in the gym and locker rooms for an extended period of time. The package details for Senior Portraits are attached. If you choose an additional pose to the ones listed above, those pictures will be taken in January. Students will be excused from school for the day they have scheduled pictures. THEY WILL NOT BE EXCUSED FOR ALL THREE DAYS. The student will still be expected to make up any work they missed on their picture day. If students want to attend school for part of the day, leave school to prepare for pictures and then return to school for their scheduled time, that will be allowed for this instance. If you have not already booked your student’s picture time, the link is below. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050C4BAEAE2FA3FE3-laurel If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or Mr. Hommel. Congratulations parents and seniors!

SGA Officers attend PGRASG Meeting in October.
Our SGA officers attended their first meeting of the Prince George's Representative Assembly of Student Government this month. It was an opportunity to meet with officers from around the county and discuss issues that students may be facing in their schools, as well as brainstorm ideas on how to address the issues. The students were also able to share fundraising ideas and network with other leaders in our county. The Student Board Member also gave a presentation on what has been happening at Board of Education meetings. This was a great opportunity for our emerging leaders! Next up is a leadership retreat for our officers. Details are still in the works but we plan on solidifying our SGA as the best in the county!! We will keep you posted. Mr. Mirza and Ms. O'Donnell

2020-2021 Yearbook
Once again, the supply chain and staff shortage continue to impact our 2020-2021 yearbook. It has again been returned to me to address some of the formatting issues so I will work on that over the break in an attempt to streamline the yearbook and get it out to everyone by Spring. I know this is frustrating and I ask for your patience. We switched to a different company this year, so I do not anticipate this kind of issue with our next yearbook. Thank you again for your patience. I truly appreciate it. THERE WILL BE A YEARBOOK!! It just is taking longer than anticipate. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

HS TEACHER ANNOUNCEMENTS
Mr. Bevard’s English Updates
Dear Students, Parents, Guardians, and Friends, Here are a few updates for Mr. Bevard’s 9th and 10th grade English classes: - Mr. Bevard is out to support the family after the birth of our latest child and will return to the classroom on Monday December 13th. The current absence plan for both 9th and 10th grade remains in effect until Wednesday December 1st. *Thursday and Friday, December 2nd and 3rd will be a transitional, independent activity for Mr. Bevard’s students as we introduce our next major resource: vocabulary.com. *The learning activities of December 6th through the 10th will be announced closer to those dates but will be available at least by the 5th of December. 9th GRADE UPDATES For Mr. Bevard’s 9th grade classes, there are some definitional, procedural updates to be aware of moving forward, which I will detail below. But first, some important context. In our first notable writing assignment, The First Short Composition of Week 5, it became apparent that large numbers of students were not completing the work. At that time, I canceled the DocHub digital resource as a requirement for completion of work. Students had expressed concern that this was an impediment to completion of assignments, and I yielded to suggestions that we eliminate any conceivable obstacle to completing the work. By and large, students did not begin completing the work in large numbers. Some students who were completing all the work performed very, VERY well in Quarter 1. Students who availed themselves of TCR in the last week of the Quarter also did well, though not as well as they might have had they received feedback and revised and resubmitted their work, as many were invited to do. This suggests that the coursework is both balanced and not unduly difficult. In Week 10, however, students were assigned another short composition. This was distributed through the Digital Notebook Exemplar - the resource on which is recorded and disseminated all of the course’s content and which all students are instructed to find the work as sorted by type and date. (To bookmark this work was one of our Week 2 and 3 tasks.) Students are expected to consult this resource nightly; it includes the drill, class work, and homework assignments which are also written on the board daily. (For interested parents, the 9th grade course work may be found up to 11/19 - with cancelations for my paternity absence indicated - here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/12GgRjgpyBetq_eeoQtYltHdbdhOvGEQY/view?usp=sharing). Yet when asked to submit this work, only 72 of 105 (or 69% students submitted the work). Of those 72 students who did submit the work, 46 submissions were incomplete - defined as 5 or fewer sentences. (In other words roughly 64% of submitted work was incomplete, and only 44% of all 9th graders turned in this work to begin with.). Many students submitted screenshots to avoid Canvas’s conversion error, but in doing so they inadvertently shared their editing history which often showed that the “last edit was seconds ago,” suggesting that when students saw the collection post on Canvas, they hastened to put together something to submit. This data, along with that I collected near the close of Quarter 1, demonstrate that when students fail to complete the work, they do poorly on both follow up practice tasks as well as scored accuracy measures. Conversely, by submitting complete work on time, students tend to perform better in the class. Interested parents and guardians can see this information reflected in SchoolMax. Assignments with a comment of Late/NS mean that an assignment was submitted late or was not submitted at all. To add greater clarity to our workflow, the following practices will be adopted in 9th grade English: 1. No work submitted after a posted deadline will receive feedback. Feedback takes time to develop; late submissions create gaps in the feedback cycle and yield scores which students don’t always understand and frequently do not follow up with for additional clarity. If students want feedback, they must submit the work on time. 2. Late work of any quality will receive a score of zero. A standard of acceptable work is its timely submission; late work does not fit this definition and will no longer be considered for points. Students have been receiving announcements in class regarding this resumption of the syllabus policy since the beginning of TCR in class. 3. Only assignments expressly invited for resubmission with an instructor’s comment will be reassessed. Students should check their feedback and take advantage of the frequent invitations to revise and resubmit their work. 4. The following are some paragraphing updates: 1. Many students have asked what the minimum number of sentences is for a high school paragraph. This question raises grave questions about how students conceive of their writing. Rather than regarding their work as a unique expression of their own attitudes and reasons, this question reveals a desire for technical compliance rather than excellence of composition. Since the beginning of our this year - and for as long as I’ve taught high school - we have defined a paragraph as “a well developed and adequately supported idea.” Since this is nebulous to many students, we have numbered an effective paragraph at 12-15 sentences and equipped them with 5 methods of reasoning to support their developing writing. To this point, paragraphs have been scored qualitatively based on the validity and development of their paragraphs using selections of the reasoning methods. But to ensure students will begin meeting this objective for high school composition, we will adopt the following schedule of escalated expectation. These may seem abrupt, but with complete application of the 5 reasoning methods which have been at the core of our composition instruction, these goals are achievable. (Some students even as recently as this week have achieved the goal for Quarter 3 below.) 1. For Quarter 2, paragraph assignments will not be considered complete unless they include 8 sentences. This includes the work for The Pearl, which begins next week and is part of the Paternity Absence plan for 9th graders. (Incomplete paragraphs will earn a maximum score of a D.) 2. In Quarter 3, no paragraph will be considered complete without 12 sentences. 3. By Quarter 4, all paragraphs will include 15 or more sentences. 5. Work submitted to Canvas which becomes converted into an unreadable link will no longer be invited to resubmit. Students should submit all work as a PDF or screenshot of the work as appropriate. Multiple screen shots of the work must be converted into one file for proper rendering in Canvas.

All the Best! Mr. Bevard, MA English 9 & 10 Department Chair CMIT Academy

Ms. O'Donnell's ENGLISH 9 Honors Classes-Novel Study
Our first quarter novel, Ashes, was a great way to start novel study this year and generated lively conversation. Now with the second quarter starting, we will accelerate our rigorous learning with novel study and book group study (information to come on that after Thanksgiving). This quarter, we will focus on a classic: THE PEARL, by John Steinbeck. I plan to start the novel study after the Thanksgiving break. I will have a PDF of the book available, as well as some classroom copies, but if your scholar prefers to have their own copy, here are the details: Paperback $10.80 THE PEARL: Publisher ‏ : ‎ Penguin Books; 1st edition (April 6, 2000) Language ‏ : ‎ English Paperback ‏ : ‎ 90 pages ISBN-10 ‏ : ‎ 014017737X ISBN-13 ‏ : ‎ 978-0140177374 Reading age ‏ : ‎ 18 years and up Lexile measure ‏ : ‎ 1010L “There it lay, the great pearl, perfect as the moon.” Like his father and grandfather before him, Kino is a poor diver, gathering pearls from the gulf beds that once brought great wealth to the Kings of Spain and now provide Kino, Juana, and their infant son with meager subsistence. Then, on a day like any other, Kino emerges from the sea with a pearl as large as a sea gull's egg, as "perfect as the moon." With the pearl comes hope, the promise of comfort and of security.... A story of classic simplicity, based on a Mexican folk tale, The Pearl explores the secrets of man's nature, the darkest depths of evil, and the luminous possibilities of love. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Ms. O'Donnell's 10th Grade English Classes--Novel Study
Our first quarter novel study, Miracle's Boys, generated lively discussion and debate. I am looking forward to what our second quarter novel study will bring! Not only will we continue our novel study, but we will also start our book club novel (details will be shared after the Thanksgiving holiday). This quarter we are focusing on classic novels. The 10th graders will be reading A TALE OF TWO CITIES by Charles Dickens. I will have a pdf of the book available and some classroom copies, but if your scholar prefers their own copy the details are below: A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens This novel traces the private lives of a group of people caught up in the cataclysm of the French Revolution and the Terror. Dicken's based his historical detail on Carlyle's "The French Revolution", and his own observations and investigations during his numerous visits to Paris. ASIN ‏ : ‎ 1853260398 Publisher ‏ : ‎ Wordsworth Editions Ltd (January 1, 1993) Language ‏ : ‎ English Paperback ‏ : ‎ 352 pages ISBN-10 ‏ : ‎ 9781853260391 ISBN-13 ‏ : ‎ 978-1853260391 Reading age ‏ : ‎ 18 years and up Lexile measure ‏ : ‎ 710L It certainly does not have to be this edition, as most editions are unabridged and have the same text just in different formats. Any copy will do. This is the copy I will use in the classroom. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

PTO UPDATES
First Parent Academy was a SUCCESS!
The PTSO hosted the first PARENT ACADEMY of the year. It was a TECH ACADEMY and the focus was on CANVAS, SCHOOLMAX and the CMIT WEBSITE. Our presenters did an AWESOME job of sharing the information with parents. Everything from how do you get notifications from Canvas to where do I find the absence form to submit my student's excuse? One big question was which grade do you look at for the CURRENT quarter grade in SchoolMax. Here is the answer: • Current Term Grade Weighted Average is the current estimated grade percentage so far for the entire course term (full year, semester, or quarter). • Grade Period Weighted Average is the current estimated grade percentage so far for this current quarter. We had a great turnout and plan to continue a monthly series just for parents. If you have an idea for a Parent Academy topic, email to the PTSO at : cmitnorthptso@gmail.com We look forward to seeing you at our next Parent Academy in December!
