5 Things You Should Do First Thing In The Morning To Be Happier All Day
Happiness experts say there are simple habits people can practice in the morning that will have a profound influence on how they feel throughout the day.
Over the past month in KG Art, students have been exploring LINES, an Element of Art that is so important to us as creators. We discovered how lines are all around us and that there are so many different kinds! From reading the book, Lines That Wiggle to closely looking at the painting Dancing Girl by artist Paul Klee who once said, "A line is a dot that went for a walk", our kindergarteners created and experimented with many different lines! Most recently, we designed imaginary playgrounds by using colored strips of paper and forming them in many different ways to create 3D lines. Enjoy these wonderful, imaginative creations!

"Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Banned Books Week was launched in 1982 in response to a sudden surge in the number of challenges to books in schools, bookstores and libraries. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information."
While all of us at CMIS come from different backgrounds and have different opinions, we value those different perspectives and our right to choose what we read!
- Mr. Cameron
Here is some wonderful artwork from Grade 2. The students created folk art inspired by the artist Heather Galler. They focused on line, pattern and colour. - Ms. Emily
2B had a Cook-Along-Live class. Students voted on what they wanted to make and they chose S'mores Pops. Everyone seemed to enjoy the activity and loved eating what they created. Parents and siblings joined in which made the experiences so fun!
- Ms. Shannon
We read banned books!

During Senior Seminar class, students created a cookbook that included quick and easy meals to make in college (some recipes were a little healthier than others). During class this week, students had the opportunity to try out their recipes in the kitchen!
- Mr. Rob
Enjoy this Quick College Recipes Cookbook by the CMIS Senior Class of 2022!
During ELA this term, grade two students have been working towards answering the question 'How does change impact people and nature?'. In our latest text, 'The Little Yellow Leaf' we've been reading about a leaf that didn't want to change. Today, students built on their understanding by trying to change leaves collected at home into a picture of something else."

Pre KB learned how to write the letter F/f, the sequence it is in the alphabet and the phonetic sound. When we started work on the letter F worksheet we played music and the students were so engaged in their work.
This week, students also enjoyed creating an art craft for the letter of the week, 'F is for Flower.' Pre KB also experimented in the process of dyeing clothes and making patterns.
- Ms. Denise
On Friday, several parents and teachers met at CMIS to walk around the school and pray for the CMIS community. Time was spent praying for families, the Covid situation, a safe return to school, etc. The parent prayer group currently meets virtually every Friday afternoon. If you want more information about this group or want to join, please send an email to the Spiritual Life Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Congratulations to all student athletes who competed in the CMAC Chess Tournament over the weekend. CMIS ranked first for the tournament with several students medaling in different age categories. Well done Eagles!
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected us all. However, our experiences may have differed, including the ways we have each coped with the pandemic.
Although returning to school comes with a wide range of feelings including excitement, happiness and joy, there might also be feelings that come up like anxiety, uncertainty and fear. It is important to know that the range of emotions that arise, are all normal and valid and everyone is entitled to feel how they do. Let’s remember to keep in mind that these first couple of weeks, maybe even months, of back to in-person learning will take time to feel like a routine again.
