BREAKING NEWS
Have You Signed Up For MakerFEST 2019?! ***REGISTER TODAY!***
Held on the first Saturday in May, this will be the 3rd Annual MakerFEST, CLF's yearly STEAM Festival celebrating our community's inner genius! CLF schools are now eight programs and six institutions across the State of Maryland serving over 3,200 students K-12! MakerFEST invites these students to participate with staff, parents and our wider CLF STEM community partners to feel encouraged to exhibit and enjoy all the day's inventions, artwork, personal projects, experiments, robots, wild creations, noble attempts, fine solutions to typical problems, and makers making so much more! CLF will also have volunteer opportunities available for anyone who wants to help build the best MakerFEST ever! To register for an exhibition space visit https://www.clfadvancedstudies.org/makerfest For volunteer opportunities visit https://goo.gl/forms/y1qs5zfo8OPOuRo92 This year, the first Saturday in May happens to coincide with May 4th, often celebrated by fans of the widely popular Star Wars franchise. We fundamentally feel obligated since astronomy, space exploration fit all too well into the MakerFEST concept, so Community Partnerships is also encouraging all exhibitors to share their project progress with @CLF_CLF on twitter or @ChesapeakeLighthouseFoundation on Facebook with the hashtag #MayTheFourthBuildWithYou. Until next update, May The Fourth Be With You!

SCHOOL NEWS
Late to School and Class
We have begun using a new system to track students who are late to school and late to class. We will review the list periodically throughout each month, and on the first of each month, we will review the list from the previous month, and we will assign the following consequences. Late to class: for the first instance, we will give a verbal warning to the student. For the second instance, we will email the parent. For the third, we will assign the next Tuesday detention. If a student has five or more, we will assign the student a second Tuesday detention. Late to school: for the first instance, we will give a verbal warning to the student. For the second instance, we will email the parent. For the third, we will assign the next Saturday detention. If a student has five or more, we will assign the student the second Saturday detention in the next month. A couple notes about detention: Detention takes precedence over all other activities, and students must serve the detention on the date assigned to them. Students are allowed to re-schedule Detention one time for extenuating circumstances pre-approved by an administrator. If a student does not secure permission to re-schedule at least 24 hours before the start of their assigned time, the student needs to serve Detention at the time assigned to them. Failure to serve the Detention assigned will result in a one-day suspension from school for insubordination. Lawful reasons to be late to school are the same as the reasons to miss school, simply because that is what being late to school is. Those reason include death in the family, student illness, court appearance, hazardous weather, school-approved work, religious holiday, lack of authorized transportation and extenuating circumstances as determined by the Superintendent or his designee. Any absence, including absence for any portion of the day, for any reason other than those cited as lawful, shall be considered unlawful and may constitute truancy. If a student arrives to school late with a reason other than those mentioned, the student will receive an unexcused tardy. Thank you for your support in reinforcing the importance of being on time to school and to class.

Repeat-Free School
CSP continues to provide a rigorous and quality education to all students. It has always been our goal to improve upon past practices, find new ways to engage students and make learning something students enjoy. We also believe that high school students need to put forth that same effort in order to be become successful adults; therefore, CSP is Repeat Free. If a student receives an E in a required high school course, the class will have to be repeated in an alternate program such as summer school, evening school and twilight school. These programs are available for students to make up credits in courses that they were not successful in the first time; classes at CSP are for students taking them for original credit. If a student does not make up the failed class in one of these alternative programs, there is a chance that we will not be able to schedule the student for the classes required for graduation and the student will have to take classes at CSP for more than four years.

Trailblaze!
This is from trailblaze.org, an organization that provides college prep services in cooperation with JHU’s Applied Physics Lab. The College Prep Program at APL has opened its 2019 application cycle and is looking for students who have the desire and academic potential to excel in college, but who lack the mentoring and resources necessary to succeed! ALL current high school sophomores and juniors (members of 2020 and 2021 graduating class) are eligible and invited to submit an application to be part of the College Prep Program. We especially encourage applications from trailblazing students who are the first in their families to attend a four-year college, students from low-income backgrounds, students who are underrepresented in STEM fields, students interested in STEM careers, and/or students in need of mentoring or advice about the college application process. We are often asked for tips on how to be a successful applicant. Although our review process is holistic, we look primarily at the following areas: evidence of academic achievement and potential (not necessarily straight-As!), dedication and passion for future dreams, a willingness to work hard and make the most of this opportunity, and demonstrated need. We’re especially looking for students who need help taking their next steps in applying for and succeeding in a top 4-year college. But there are no fixed requirements, and students are invited to define “need” as it applies to their situation. The program requires significant work outside of class to fully prepare for college. Students are expected to prioritize College Prep if accepted and are strongly discouraged from participating in other activities with significant requirements (such as a full-time job or summer school) to allow enough time to succeed in this program. Students should expect to spend an average of 4-6 hours per night during the week during the program, with less during the school year and more in the summer. To access the 2019 application and more information about the application process and summer experience, please visit our website: trailblaze.org

Buy a cause bracelet designed by the NHS. Each costs 2$. See Ms. Bulisco in rm 208 to purchase. 2. Donate items or cash to your Advisory teacher.

Did you know.....
The question of who wrote the Nancy Drew books was a mystery for many years. Although Edward Stratemeyer created the characters and synopsis for the first few Nancy Drew books, he did not write them himself, and the actual writers agreed not to reveal their names. We now know that Mildred A. Wirt was the ghostwriter “Carolyn Keene” for 23 of the first 30 Nancy Drew books. (https://www.lib.umd.edu/nancy/influential-authors/carolyn-keene) Want to check out the Nancy Drew stories and see what they hype is all about? Visit us at CSP's Media Center where you will find the first 40 novels.
