Last School Day
CMIT South is finishing its second year on Monday. It is another 2-hour early dismissal day. Parents are asked to have their children attend; attendance rate may impact promotion, placement, and course eligibility decisions in the upcoming years.

Scholars are recommended to spend 20-30 minutes/day to complete Summer assignments.

During the Summer, newsletters will be once a month. Our office hours will be 8 am to 3 pm Monday through Thursday starting from this week.

I wish a delightful, relaxing, and safe Summer to all our scholars and families.

UPCOMING EVENTS
Summer Program Opportunity in Technology
The PGCC IET Department in conjunction with CETAT will be providing our Annual Technology Camp for youth. Last year, several students from CMIT North participated in the program, and we hope that some CMIT-SOUTH will join us this year.


In short, during this program students will learn about web design, coding, video production, music production and photography. This program is free for county residents who adhere to all of the registration deadlines. If you have any questions, or require any additional information, please let me know.
