Safe Dating Group Project
In 8th grade Health, we cover Safe Dating. This program touches on many topics as it pertains to dating, with the main focus on domestic violence and how to get out of an abusive relationship. Student-chosen groups were tasked with demonstrating their understanding and importance of being aware and how to help and or get help if they or someone they know get out of an abusive relationship. They could have created a video, slide show, or flyer.
There were many outstanding projects submitted by our scholars at CMIT. My health colleagues had a tough time choosing the best one. Please take a look at the top video chosen. Great Job to all that completed and submitted their work, I am very proud of you all!!!!!

Tigers Reign Victory over Dwight Eisenhower
The CMIT boys’ basketball team improved to a 3-1 record this past Monday, with a victory over Dwight Eisenhower. The Tigers took their game on the road to a sold-out Dwight Eisenhower gym. The Dwight Eisenhower boy's basketball team is considered to be; tough, fast, physically imposing, and very athletic.
The tigers are not as big or as athletic, compared to the Eisenhower team; however, the Tigers are a very well-coached and disciplined team, and because of those factors made a difference in the outcome. The final score was 39 to 24, and CMIT with another victory!
The Lady Tigers also played a tough game against Dwight Eisenhower. This was a very thrilling and highly entertaining game, for the fans on hand. The Dwight Eisenhower girls’ basketball team jumped out to a 6-0 start, but first-year head coach, Kendall Pinkney quickly got his team refocused, and back into the game. The game for the first half was a back-and-forth contest, with both teams hitting big shots!
Laila Johnson hit two three-point shots that brought the traveling CMIT fans to their feet with excitement! Eden Kwende was responsible for scoring eight points in the game, and Mariah McCleary at the point guard position, ran coach Pinkney’s offense very well, contributing two three-point shots. Lola Almonte, one of the teams returning players, also had an outstanding game providing great defense making crucial stops for the Lady Tigers. Sade Oyelola, another returning player, had two points in the game.
The game went down to the wire with our Lady Tigers coming up short, 24 to 23 in a tough loss.
Special thanks to our cheerleading team, they are working super hard! The CMIT cheerleading team has been working overtime performing at all of our home games and this past Thursday they performed at the honor roll assembly. The cheerleaders performed one of their outstanding cheers, “Let’s Go Tigers, Let’s Go!” This brought loud cheers from parents and students, who attended the assembly. Again thank you cheerleading team for your incredible performance!
