Black History Celebration


On Thursday, February 22, 2018 our history department and the students of CMIT South planned, developed, and implemented a great Black History Month celebration.

Our school community gathered to celebrate Black History Month. Dr. Carter G. Woodson, was a man born in Buckingham County, Virginia to a poor carpenter. His mother and father could neither read nor write. And even though Carter G. Woodson couldn’t attend school on a regular basis because he had to work on the family farm, he had a strong desire to learn. He and his brother moved to Huntington, West Virginia so they could attend school and eventually he did and became a great thinker and scholar making great contributions in the lives of black Americans. He is called the “Father of Black History” because he started Negro History Week. Black folks had one whole week to celebrate a history as old as the world itself. Today we have black history month because of the work of this great man. In talking about history, Dr. Carter G. Woodson said, “Those who have no record of what their forebears have accomplished lose the inspiration which comes from the teaching of biography and history.”

Black people in America have a wonderful yet painful history. It is a history the includes the building of the great Mali empire in West Africa that housed the great city of learning called Timbuktu.

We should know what contributions African Amercians have made and as Carter G. Woodson said, "Knowing them will give us the desire to accomplish more, to make a greater contribution towards the future of our people and the future of the world."

Thank you for your support of the program, as it fosters a sense of community by celebrating and embracing the contributions of others.

SAT Night


As you and your child get ready for college, our school invites all high school parents and students to join the SAT Night on Wednesday, March 7 at 6:00 pm.

The SAT gives your child a chance to show how ready they are with questions that look a lot like what they’re learning in class. The SAT:
• Focuses on vocabulary and math they're already learning in class and that they'll need to succeed in college.
• Doesn’t penalize for guessing—your child is free to try every question.
• Offers an optional essay.

The SAT is the only test that offers free practice on Khan Academy®. Your child can work at their own pace on the areas they need to improve. It’s a completely personalized way to get ready. And it’s completely free.

We welcome students and their families to attend our SAT Night on Wednesday, March 7th at 6:00 pm to learn more about the SAT and college.
