In line with its vision of instilling international-mindedness in its students, CISM is celebrating United Nations & World Languages Day on October 25, 2013.
Students of Middle School may come in costumes depending on the continent their grade level class is assigned, or as a famous person from that continent. They will join a short parade with Lower School students around the campus from 8:15 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.
The assigned continents for the grade levels are as follows (paired with lower school classes):
Grade 6 – Asia
Grade 7 – Europe
Grade 8 – Africa
The Social Studies classes will spearhead interactive class presentations and activities with Lower School classes from 10:30 a.m. to 10:50 a.m. Immediately after, Middle School homerooms will celebrate a simple class–based festival of culinary treats from 10:50 a.m. to 11:20 a.m. in their respective homerooms.
Except for these specified activities, classes are expected to continue throughout the day.
Second quarter will begin next Monday, the 21st, so it’s high time to rev up your motivational gear and accomplish everything that you had set your sights on at the beginning of this semester. No more fooling around. No more “cruising mode.” Put your best foot forward and show your parents, teachers and peers just how much you can achieve if you only STEP UP!!!
The schedule of teacher-and student presentations is found in last week’s Newsletter (normally published in the CISM website) but we are including a copy in this announcement to refresh everyone’s memory.
We look forward to seeing you this Friday!!!
Different homeroom classes from Grades 6-12 in the Upper School are getting ready to present their culminating activity/project for Emergency Readiness, the common topic underlying Service Learning for this quarter.
Presentations to the entire Upper School community of students, teachers and interested parents will be on October 18th, Friday during last block.
