Deep play, deep learning: The view from the first floor with Mme Amy

On Tuesday evening, I attended our showing of Screenagers - a documentary about kids, social media, and smartphones - along with many of our Grade 5 and 6 students and their families.

Many of these students were in my class in kindergarten, and it so special to be with them as our pedagogical leadership team facilitated important discussions between parents and their children.

Shakespeare Residency Program brings English literature to life for CFIS students

CFIS participates in the Shakespeare Residency Program every three years, with the goal that all students will participate in the program once in junior high and again in senior high. This year, all students from grades 7-12 will be engaged in preparing a production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
