Black History Month Assembly!
CMIT North Middle School held it's Black History Month assembly on Friday, February 24th. Students were educated in the history, heritage and culture as it relates to Black contributions in society.
The assembly helped students understand the rhythm of Afrobeat music, as well as modern dances and how to perform as a drill team.
8th graders were treated to an amazing guest speaker, Prince George's County Councilwoman, the honorable Wanika B. Fisher. She enlightened our students about the importance of a strong work ethic and the importance of being a positive contributor to society.She left students with the message that it is never too early to pursue their dreams!
CMIT North Middle School would like to thank all the members of the Equity Team including, Ms. Wake, Ms. Castillo, Mr. Harman, and Mr. Scott for guiding/coaching the students. The Equity Team would also like to recognize all the hard work of students of the Black History Month Student Committee.
Great job everyone!

Aid for the Ukrainian Landmine Victims
For a portion of this summer, I will be acting as a US volunteer for Mission Kharkiv, a Ukrainian organization in support of the civilian citizens of Ukraine who have been affected by the invasion of Russia. As you may have seen in the news, much of the infrastructure in Ukraine has been damaged or destroyed. As a result, many civilian citizens are suffering greatly from a lack of resources and services. A main source of the suffering is injured civilians who lack access to medical supplies and services. Many of those injured have been hurt by landmines and booby traps placed by Russian combatants. We, as an organization, are looking for any and all donations to supply supplies and services for those civilians injured.
Below is the list of items we are trying to gather for the 100 kits needed to support emergency medical personnel responding to landmine victims.
I will be there training newly recruited medical responders on how to use the kits to aid injured civilians. If you are able to donate any of these materials it would be life-changing to those who need aid in this terrible time. I will maintain a box in my office for donated items from the list below. Please give if you can. Thanks.
