We have a new normal way to welcome our new students in this current academic year.
Over the past few weeks, our wonderful students and staff have been lending a helping hand in welcoming our new students and making them feel part of our CMIS community. The ongoing support and help have been truly appreciated as many of our new students have commented on how friendly, helpful, and inclusive our whole community has been! Go Eagles!

As part of the grade 2 social studies this semester, we are learning about the history of transportation and the impact it has on our lives. So far we have explored different types of transport and how they have changed over time. We have also discussed why transport has changed so much, as well as the benefits and drawbacks of transport and the changes that have been made.
This last week we focused on water transport, and looked at boats then and now. After discussing what makes a boat successful and how these advancements in technology have changed the way we live our lives, we designed and hand crafted our very own boats from recycled materials. There was much excitement as we finally saw our creations come to life with a bit of glue and tape. In our designs we had to think about what would make our boat float, what could it carry and whether or not it needed a sail to help it move on the water.
Our handiwork seemed to work as we put our boats to the test in a tub of water, and there weren’t too many sinking issues. After we watched and hoped that all our hard work would hold together, we spoke about which boat was the best designed and why it was so good. We also spoke about what we could improve on next time. All in all, we had a great time learning about boats and building them together.

Students in Primary Art are being inspired by legendary artist Robert Rauschenberg to create collage artwork using old magazines to express 'beauty' and honor the artists' constant curiosity. 'We don't need to have an idea - we just do something.'
