CMIS Stories

CMIS features photos and videos in our CMIS Gallery and on our CMIS Social Media Platforms.  Below are some recent highlights.

The High School Chemistry classes have been studying how electrons are organized in atoms. A key idea is that electrons are restricted to specific energy levels. When atoms are "excited" by heat the electrons jump up to higher energy levels. As they jump back down, energy is released in the form of light of specific colors. The colors can be used in "flame tests" to identify the particular atoms present. In the picture you can see a bright orange flame typical of sodium salts. (This same orange color is seen in sodium street lights which are common in some countries.)

Nurse Siam visited the preschool students this week to talk about the importance of proper hand washing. Using a blacklight, the students were able to see a special luminescent cream on their hands representing germs. They then washed their hands following the steps Nurse Siam taught them and rechecked their hands to see if all of the "germs" had been washed away.

On August 25-28, 2022 a CMIS Grade 7 Student Athlete and his team(U13 boys) won 1st place in the Jr. NBA 5v5 Thailand 2022 basketball tournament at Saipanyarangsit School and competed on behalf of the Keng Basketball Academy Team in Bangkok. There were a total of 8 teams participating in the competition. At the same tournament, two CMIS Grade 9 Student Athletes received the 3rd runner-up award from 18 competing teams. Congratulations!
Over the last 2 weeks the Grade 5 classes have explored mixtures and solutions, as well as the many ways we can separate them using screens, filters, evaporation dishes and magnets. Students have enjoyed working in groups as they design models and plans on how to best separate mixtures of gravel, powder, salt and iron particles. The best part is conducting the experiments and seeing if all our hard work pays off!

On 30th August, the High School Counselling Department invited a representative from Le Cordon Bleu, one of the world's best culinary schools, to speak with students interested in studying Culinary and Hospitality Management.

CMIS staff were invited to join a Sunday service at The First Church of Chiang Mai. Some of our students participated in singing “The Butterfly Song” for the congregation. It was a beautiful morning service and we are grateful to have joined!

Your PTG Leadership Team are getting ready for the next parent meeting on 15 September at 7:45, where we will be sharing feedback on parent concerns, Superintendent Dr. Cherie will speak on her vision for CMIS as well as her journey into academic administration, the Student Support Services team will explain the types of supports and help they offer to students, and the opportunity to ask questions or raise concerns. We have been meeting regularly to plan both this event as well as several fun festival events on campus in the coming months. Don’t miss this important meeting!
This year, Interact club will be collaborating again with a community service group called Rotary. We are calling on you to help donate any winter clothes in the boxes located next to the school cafeteria and the stairs at the back of the gymnasium. Every item donated makes a big difference. The donation will run till December 2, 2022. Thank you for your cooperation!
Grade 1 has started exploring the properties of air. Students worked with a set of objects to see how air makes objects move as well as how it is a form of matter that takes up space.
