Last week, Grade 4 explored how to problem solve using the four part process, S.T.E.P. The first part, stating the problem, was practiced in groups using made up scenarios that we might often see in fourth graders.

Grade One have been studying Air in Science. So far we have made Balloon Rockets, Wind Vanes, Anemometers, Parachutes and Pinwheels to show how air and wind can be used, and how these instruments help us to detect wind speed and direction. Today, we celebrated the end of the module by making our own kites and flying them outside!
- Mr. Carl
Thank you so much for making this food drive a possibility. Your generosity has provided an entire street in a small local neighborhood with food for a week. Over the weekend, we were able to hand out care packages totaling over:
75 kg of rice - 900 packets of instant noodles
100 bottles of oil - 100 bottles of fish sauce
200 bars of soap - 100 cans of fish
Thank you also to the teachers who helped organize the donations, we could not have done this without you.
Congratulations to grade 3A, who alone gave almost 300 instant noodle packets, for winning the pizza party, sponsored by NHS & Interact.
Once again, thank you for your unwavering support.

Grade 2 students have been investigating rocks in science this term. After reading about the various ways engineers use rocks, we headed out onto the CMIS campus to examine how rocks are used to build things here at school.
- Mr. Jonas
On Friday, March 25, French level 3 and AP students went on a field trip to Chouquette bakery to learn about the process of making bread. The students listened to the owner, a French baker, and made their own baguettes. The students also interviewed the French baker to know more about him, the bakery, and the bread. The students will have to prepare an oral presentation on the process of bread-making as a part of their final exam. The students were able to understand and speak French during the whole day. Bravo!
- Madame Gaëlle
Grade 1 PE class talked about Smokey Season; what it is, why it happens and how we can protect ourselves.
- Ms. Keisha
4A and Ms. Kim were working on the weekly second step lesson and chose to have it outside as the weather was so nice. The lesson was on 'Solving Problems.'
- Ms. Kim
Grade 2 students took advantage of the cool and clean air in the morning to read outside. It is always fun to change up our learning environment and enjoy the sun as we read. The students loved being outside!
- Ms. Shannon
The Middle School Humanities Department is proud to announce that 2 of our students have won the right to represent CMIS and the South Asia Region at the National History Day National Competition in the United States this summer.
Competing against students from The British School of Jakarta, Singapore American School, Dulwich College Singapore, The American School of Chennai and The International School of Kuala Lumpur, a grade 7 documentary about the Berlin Wall placed 2nd in the Individual Documentary category, and a grade 8 exhibit about James Donovan and a Cold War spy exchange placed 2nd in the Individual Exhibit category.
Two other projects just narrowly missed out on attending nationals, placing 3rd in their respective categories. Congrats to all of the students that represented us so well at the regional contest this year; your hardwork and dedication definitely paid off!
- Mr. Cameron
