BREAKING NEWS
CHESAPEAKE SCIENCE POINT HS CAME IN FOURTH
…Other high schools at the top include suburban powerhouses Eastern Technical High School and the Western School of Technology and Environmental Science, both in Baltimore County, and River Hill High School in Howard County. Chesapeake Science Point, a small charter school in Anne Arundel County, came in fourth. The Sun analysis averaged the 2016 scores on the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Career, orPARCC, to produce a single passing percentage for each elementary, middle and high school in the region. The figure represents a school’s overall pass rate for all grade levels on both the reading and math tests. Each school was then ranked. When asked what helped their students succeed, the principals of Chesapeake Science Point, Eastern and Poly said their schools are committed to keeping high academic standards and to providing extra help to struggling students. … while Chesapeake provides extra help on Saturdays and tries to give extra attention both to the highest achievers and those who are doing poorly. But the principals also believe that building a strong sense of community within the school is important.

CSP MATH TEAM WINS !!!
October 29, 2016 - CSP Math Team won at AACC Math Contest held at AACC, Arnold Campus. There were only 3 perfect scores in the individual round from all the schools that participated. CSP had two of those scores, with 11th grader Glenn Boyette and 12th grader Anthony Krieger each earning a perfect score, and earning an apple from the AACC math professors that organize this contest as their reward. These two perfect scores were joined by two CSP students scoring 5 out of the 6 questions correct (9th grader Oumarr Bah and 12th grader Ryan Budahazy), to give CPS a lead after the individual round. Other high scoring CSP students on the individual round included 10th graders Mark Kelm and Connor Parker and 12th graders Matthew Boyer and Benjamin Kelm. As the contest moved to the team round, the team of Anthony, Glenn, Ryan, Oumarr and Benjamin scores the highest score in the team round, with 5 out of 6 correct to earn CSP 1st place and a solid lead in the overall standings.

After two of the five AACC High School Math Competitions so far this season, the top five schools in overall standings are:
20.33 points - Chesapeake Science Point
18.00 points - Severna Park High School
12.00 points - The Severn School
12.00 points - South River High School
9.67 points - The Key School

CSP was represented by:

8th grade: Cole Parker and Nethmi Weerasinghe
9th grade: Oumarr Bah
10th grade: Mark Kelm, Hana Motta, Connor Parker, Cory Powers, Nathan Taylor, Bosith Weerasinghe and Stanley Zhu
11th grade: Glenn Boyette and Kaitlin White
12th grade: Matthew Boyer, Ryan Budahazy, Benjamin Kelm, David Kravets and Anthony Krieger

At the same time that their high school teammates were competing at AACC, the CSP middle school math team was at the MD Mathalon, a statewide competition held by the Maryland Council of Teachers of Mathematics, jointly sponsored by Maryland State Department of Education, Maryland council of teachers of Mathematics, National Security Agency and Anne Arundel County Public Schools. This year marks the 31st year of the MD Mathalon, with teams from the top public, private and magnet-program middle schools competing in a competition that promotes mathematics excellence through individual and team competitions.

This competition is held in three parts, an individual and team mathematics competition and a team engineering challenge invention round. The invention round is a unique part of this contest, where teams are comprised of students from different schools who are given 20 minutes to devise their best solution to a science and engineering based problem. CSP students did very well in invention round with Ololade Omoniyi- Alake, Shiyam Rupeshkumar, Imaad Syed each earning a 2nd place ribbon, Darsana Alagarsamy, Isa Liggans, Emily Liu, Jordan Manalang, Aaban Syed, Joseph Zimmerman each earning 3rd place ribbon. Aaron Chu, Rishi Erigineni, Jeffrey Huang , Katrina Manalang also earning a 4th place ribbon and Anagha Sandeep earning a 5th place ribbon.

CSP was represented at MD Mathalon by:
6th Grade : Rishi Erigineni, Jeffrey Huang, Emily Liu, Shiyam Rupeshkumar and Nasier Sturdivant
7th Grade : Darsana Alagarsamy , Katrina Manalang, Hannah Sullivan, Aaban Syed and Joseph Zimmerman
8th Grade : Aaron Chu, Dhruva Kothari, Isa Liggans, Jordan Manalang, Om Mehta, Ololade Omoniyi- Alake, Akash Prasad, Anagha Sandeep, Imaad Syed and Emily Zhu.

From the World Language Department
During the month of October, we celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month and were honored by the visit of Mrs. Maria Sasso from the Board of Education. She shared with our Hispanic family her personal story and encouraged them to continue following the traditions of Hispanic heritage with their children.

Students also learn about “El Dia de los Muertos”(The Day of the Dead) on November 1st. A traditional celebration that originated in Mexico and is recognized internationally. In 2008 it was inscribed in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars called ofrendas, honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and a special bread. Our students enjoyed learning about the holiday and creating colorful skulls.

FOT/Engineering Design
Our 9th grade FOT students have been working hard designing and building their own cranes from popsicle sticks and wood slats. They are designing the cranes with the intention to see whose crane can hold the most weight without breaking from the stress. Keeping in the competitive spirit, the winner from each class will win a prize. Some designs are extremely complicated while others are very simple. Our Engineering Design class has moved away from a typical pencil/paper quarterly exam and in fact designed a garage/guest house for one of the teachers in the building. They used the Sketchup program on the computers and many students were able to design some very interesting garages.
