Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. This year is going to be a bit different in many ways and school may look different, but we will still be here for each other. We will be here caring for each other and thinking and learning together with open minds and open hearts. We are excited and nervous as the new school year begins and will continue to use this space to share news and celebrate our learning and our community. Please stay tuned and subscribe to keep updated:) Check out our first blog post of this school year – Welcome back!
We are readers, researchers, poets, artists and performers. Sharing our learning and our growth is important as we make connections to our community and the world.
Our Spring Book fair was a great success. So many readers all over the school were eager to dive into their new books. Thanks to our fantastic family volunteers for making this a happen.
Art Fair and Poetry Slam
The Art Fair and Poetry Slam showcased the talented artists and poets of CIS.
Process and Projects
Independent, long- term projects are an important part of our IB Programme. Learners participate in The Exhibition in Grade Five and Community Project in Grade Eight. Fifth Grade just kicked off Exhibition by brainstorming ideas and sharing their work and Eighth Graders completed their community project and informed others about their action, service and research.
Projects and Process
More reflection and action. Check out this student-created mindfulness set-up.
We are so excited to start the WAVE peer mediation program. These MYP communicators have been trained to mediate conflicts and help everyone find peaceful solutions to problems.
Lots of Learning Everywhere
Mathematicians measuring and finding diameter, building and exploring with loose parts on the playground and learning from an author in the cafe. We spend every day communicating, thinking and gaining knowledge.
