Sculpture Cardboard Masks:
Before heading back online for MLP, this semester's Sculpture students began designing and building their cardboard masks. Each student carefully drew their 3D creation in 2D in their sketchbooks. Students then began cutting and gluing their cardboard together. Much more to come now that students are heading back into the class!

Grade 5 recently participated in a clothing drive to support displaced Burmese people because of the ongoing conflict in Myanmar. We had an opportunity to help them and we put forth our full effort in collecting some much needed materials.
As a grade, we collected items that they needed including books, warm clothes, blankets, dry food, toys, educational materials, hand sanitizer, and face masks.

March 1st marks the beginning of Women's History Month and is a chance to celebrate women's contributions to history, culture and society. In the Middle School, a bulletin board was created by students and teachers celebrating various women of note. Who are the women that inspire you? Which women from history are we missing from our bulletin board?

The Grade 8 Class trip to the Huay Lan area of the Royal Project Conservation Area and Reservoir took place on 23-25 February with 37 students and 4 CMIS faculty attending the trip.
Highlights of Day 1 were team building activities, setting up the camp and students cooking dinner on camp stoves for themselves. Day 2 was the hardest day, with orienteering skills in the morning before a 7 km hike up to the Doi Ngom summit, about 600 m in elevation change, but over a very rocky and rough terrain. All students reached the summit and returned down over the course of about 6 hours. Day 3 was another team building challenge with students building a rope crossing above the gully and then working with carabiners, harnesses and helmets to get all students across!
Overall, the entire trip was a huge success with lots of new challenges being achieved by students.

Interact Club is hosting a samosa sale this FRIDAY. Don't miss it!
With Studio Art putting such emphasis on design, this semester we tried our hand at creating square format album covers! The class studied Andy Warhol's early Ink Blot Technique graphic designs and used them for inspiration. Each student selected a musical artist or group of their choice and created a cohesive studio art album cover. Students material limitations included a limited color palette, use of an ink nib and including a modified contour drawing into their work. Each student incorporated their knowledge of The Principles of Design into their work with an emphasis on cohesion.

The CMIS Middle School National History Day competition has come to an end, and we are proud to recognize our students for their hard work and creative projects. With over 100 students competing this year across grades 6, 7 and 8, judges were impressed with the variety of topics studied and the arguments made by students. While all the projects demonstrated learning and key skills, only the best were selected to represent the school at the South Asia regional competition, held in Singapore.

On Saturday, 12 February, 37 CMIS students and 6 faculty members were part of the service-learning trip sponsored by the ELEPHANTS! Club! Students ranged from Grades 7 to Grade 12 and all high school students in attendance earned 8 hours of service learning. You can see in the pictures some of the activities students were involved in throughout the day, including kitchen food prep, cleaning shelters (yes, shoveling elephant poop) and helping in the disabled dogs area. More trips are coming soon!!!

NHS & Interact Second Food Drive
Due to the success of the previous food drive, Interact and NHS will be organizing a second school-wide food drive following the same format as before. The collection period will begin next Monday (elementary/middle school) and Tuesday (high school) and will run for two week until Friday, March 18. NHS and Interact representatives will drop off boxes for students to put their donations in and posters (see PDF below) with the new items each grade is assigned to. All items can be bought at your local 7/11. Additionally, online cash donations can be submitted using the information below.
Don’t forget, the grade that gives the most donations will win a pizza party at the end of the year!
Together we can help more people in need.
On Saturday, CMIS students and staff members attended the Chiang Mai Education Fair. It was great fun highlighting the school to the many prospective families who attended the fair. We can't wait to welcome the new families into our community!
