Hello Elementary students and families!
We are so looking forward to having you join us for the first big NHS fundraising event for this year - the Grand Carnival. There will be face painting, wheel of fortune, balloon games, baked goods, and much more fun! Buy as many raffle tickets as you want to win a chance of throwing a pie in the face of Mr. Tyler, Ms. Kim or Ms. Yunae, or even an NHS member of your choice!! Profits will go towards scholarships for the kids at JoJo Sanctuary!
Time: 3:30pm to 6pm.
Venue: The grassy area near the nurse's office. In case of rain, it will be moved to the auditorium.
We hope you are ready for an afternoon of fun!
- Ms. Kim and Ms. Yunue
Science experiment day! Grade 1 is learning about the properties of air and air resistance. The students had fun making parachutes and testing them. We are all looking forward to more science fun!
- Ms. Katie
At the busy Little Chefs club, the weekly recipes were for Chocolate Chip Pancakes and Rainbow Pancakes. We really enjoy cooking, taking turns, sharing, and caring for each other.
- Mrs. Denise
At CMIS, our goal is to cultivate courageous learners and responsible global citizens. We want our students to grow up to be flexible, proactive, collaborative, resilient, creative, responsible, kind, innovative and respectful. These Student Learner Outcomes (SLOs) are rooted in CMIS' community-wide, shared vision - to provide educational excellence in a caring Christian community that respects and celebrates diversity.
For StuCo's first after-school fundraiser, we sold brown sugar bubble tea to the whole school! There was a long queue of students, but we managed to hand out enough bubble teas for everyone.
The Junior swim team went to our first swim meet of the season at APIS on Wednesday, September 14th. 34 swimmers from Grade 1 to Grade 6 competed against APIS swimmers individually and in relays! We swam hard, got our times, and cheered for each other. Next up is the senior warm up meet on Wednesday, Sept 21st and the CMAC swim meet in October - we can’t wait!

Banned Books Week celebrates the freedom to read and spotlights current and historical attempts to censor books in libraries and schools. For 40 years, the annual event has brought together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types — in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.
The theme for Banned Books Week 2022 is "Books Unite Us. Censorship Divides Us." Sharing stories important to us means sharing a part of ourselves. Books reach across boundaries and build connections between readers. Censorship, on the other hand, creates barriers. Banned Books Week is both a reminder of the unifying power of stories and the divisiveness of censorship, and a call to action for readers across the country to push back against censorship attempts in their communities. (from The American Library Association)
The CMIS English department supports and celebrates "Banned Book Week.
The counseling team welcomed a representative from Boston University at CMIS last Friday. Boston University is a private research university in Boston, Massachusetts. It has world-renowned academics as well as a nice mix of clubs/social activities on campus. Our students enjoyed learning more about Boston University!
This year at CMIS we wanted to bring awareness to our community about the 21st of September, which is recognized around the world as the International Day of Peace. The United Nations General Assembly proposed this day back in 1981, and people have been working for 41 years to promote Peace by focusing on themes to celebrate and bring awareness and education on this day. This year's theme: End Racism, Build Peace. One way to start is by wearing blue and white on this day, or even all week, as well as reading more about activities around the world via the UN's page:
The Interact club members sent our students and teachers home with a smile through some Punch drink sales! We hope you enjoyed it and are looking forward to plenty more fundraisers!
How does water interact with other materials?
G.3B is learning all about water and its properties. We wanted to find out how water interacts with other materials. Will it absorb? What does it mean to be waterproof? To answer our questions, we conducted an experiment to see how water would interact when we put it on other surfaces such as wax paper, tin foil, tissues, or paper.

Nearly three hundred students and teachers from ten different school programs around Thailand and Malaysia came together at International School Bangkok for their Band Festival. Twenty-eight, nearly twenty percent of CMIS high school students, prepared challenging music in an incredibly short period of time to become part of the massed band. Students were also fortunate to meet the composer for one of the pieces and have time to work directly with the person who wrote the music. Thanks to Dr. Yuthachai and Dr. Cherie for supporting our student musicians by attending their concert. Congratulations to the performers!
If you were unable to join us in watching the final performance, please feel free to do so using this link:
