Grade 4A have been reading a book called 'Love That Dog' about a boy's struggles and triumphs learning poetry. The class have enjoyed learning about the elements of poetry, reading poetry and writing some of their own. They have also been analyzing the text and wrote a paragraph about what they think the theme is.

The senior swim team went to PREM last week for a warm up meet. For some swimmers, it was their first time swimming in a 50m pool, but they crushed it! We’ll be back at PREM on October 6th for the CMAC meet and we can’t wait!

The students in Middle School Computers recently enjoyed celebrating International Day of Peace. The students first learned about a girl named Sadako Sasaki and how, through origami cranes, she became a symbol of peace throughout the world. Each student was then given the opportunity to create an origami crane. Creating origami and computer programming are similar in that one must follow an algorithm to accomplish both. Students then, depending on their grade, used the pixel art program to draw a picture to show what peace meant to them, or created a 6-panel comic strip depicting a situation where a conflict was resolved through peaceful means. Our students created a total of 110 paper cranes which are now hanging in the computer classroom to daily remind us of peace.

CMIS held the USA College Fair at the school gymnasium on September 21st. Parents, teachers, and students had an opportunity to explore and talk face-to-face with 16 participating college representatives. Some colleges even offered full scholarships! Please contact Ms. Aon if you are interested or would like more information about the programs.
As a part of our Water and Climate unit in Science, 3A learned about some of the different ways weather can be measured. We constructed a wind vane to measure wind direction, used a rain gauge to measure precipitation, and used a thermometer to measure temperature. Students will track this data for 4-5 days.
- Ms. Yunae
The counseling team presented the last talk of September on the topic of "Admission Tests." The Topic was about Admission Tests (IELTS/TOEFL/PSAT/SAT/BMAT/AP) in the College application process for Universities internationally.
The team invited Ms. Zhuangwei (Weiwei) Huang, a CMIS parent, but also an experienced English teacher / Educational Consultant for International college counseling. She introduced the tests from a 4-year College Counseling Perspective. This presentation was aimed to help students and parents gain a better idea of the goal, structure appropriate planning, and prepare for tests based on individual needs.
Enjoy some of these behind the scene photos from three days worth of photo sessions with Mr. Yo! More information regarding ordering individual and class photos, will be shared at a later date.
Grade One used a bottle system to discover how water can be used to show that air takes up space. Through various experiments and observations students were able to conclude that air is matter and occupies space even though we can't see it.
