With one student joining remotely and the others present in class, the AP Biology course started by considering the most remarkable molecule in the universe: water. A water molecule is made of just three atoms, but these are arranged in a way to give water some very special properties. In this class we looked at the "stickiness" of water, which we demonstrated by being able to pour water along a wet string, and observed in the way water forms beads on a lotus leaf. By using a document camera and webcam, the students in class and the student studying remotely were able to see what was happening while maintaining their distance!

Ms. Laura and Nurse Siam visited the primary school classrooms to talk to the students about the importance of wearing their masks correctly and washing their hands properly. This morning, the KGA students were all very attentive and enjoyed going over the process together. They particularly liked the demonstration with baby powder that gave a very clear picture of why wearing a mask is important.
During this time, students also were reminded about the importance of learning how to read facial clues and to listen more carefully to words being spoken as we are all wearing masks.

The Thai and Foreign Language high school students learned how to make jasmine garlands for Mother's Day, which is celebrated in Thailand on August 12th.
In Thailand, a jasmine garland is typically given to mothers on Mother's Day as a symbol of the pure love between a child and mother, as well as representing a mother’s unconditional love. Happy Mother's Day!

Mr. Tyler (our Primary School Principal) and Mr. Chauncey (our Technology Coach) visited students in grades 2, 3, 4, and 5 to talk about Chromebook safety and responsibility. Students in these homeroom classes will each have a Chromebook available to use throughout the school year.
