It may not look like a typical drama class, but this year at CMIS, theatre students are devoting select days to working on their "Arts Journals". The idea is to unplug a bit from the stress of pandemic-era schooling, and spend some structured time flexing the creative muscles. During these arts breaks, students are given an assignment related to creative writing, sketching, poetry, cartooning, even dance and music composition! The goal is that by the end of the term, they'll not only have a body of work on which to look back and reflect, they'll have also expanded their creative capabilities in new and empowering ways.

I have been meeting with new primary school students this past week. At the beginning of the school year, I like to check in with new students and hear about how they are doing as they settle into our new school environment and help them if they are having any struggles. One of the questions I ask is about their classmates and if they are making friends and feeling included in the class. It makes me so proud to hear how welcomed the students feel, how they are able to make friends and feel a part of their grade level so quickly. I am proud of our students and the way they welcome and accept new friends.
On Friday afternoon, we ended the day with a little ice cream party as a way of welcoming our new students! We had so much fun celebrating, we forgot to take photos. It was a great time to connect as a group.

CMIS students now have the option of checking out e-books online and reading them on any electronic device. The company we are doing this through is called Overdrive, which is a US based company that many public libraries use to give their patrons remote access.
These e-books can be accessed through our online catalog (library.cmis.ac.th) by anyone with a CMIS email account (grades 3-12). If students want to explore only the e-book collection, they can access it through soraapp.com/libraries/thschools, once again logging in through their school email account. Please do not hesitate to contact Ms. Ruth in the library if you have any questions.

Over the first three weeks, 4B have been working on their emotional and social health. They first learned about the power of mistakes with a super creative Mistakes Art wall.
Next they explored the importance of love through their Positivity Pockets which were full of positive affirmations and compliments from others. Finally we dived deep into what 'heart' means with some craftily created origami love hearts fitting nicely with our current Wit & Wisdom curriculum.

Transition can be an exciting time but it can also be overwhelming. It takes time to get used to a new environment, make new friends and achieve a sense of belonging at school. Supportive connections and communities are important in making sure new students are settling in well.
The CMIS community came together to celebrate and welcome new Middle School students on Friday, August 21st and new High School students on Monday, August 24th. It was very heartwarming to see new students with their buddies and teachers, enjoying lunch together and sharing experiences of transition.

CMIS students in Grades 2-9 took the Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) to assess what they know in Math, Language Arts, Reading and Science. The MAP breaks down each student's strengths and areas for growth which the classroom teachers can use to target focus areas in the classroom. MAP is an adaptive assessment so each session is individualized to each student based on how they answer each test item.
Congratulations to our students for working hard this week on MAP testing!
