Principal's Message

Welcome to another wonderful year at CIMS! I am extremely excited to begin the 2016-2017 school year.  Our continued dedication to our mission and vision will provide your students with the best possible learning experiences.  The staff is committed to maintaining high expectations through rigorous curriculum, opportunities to develop international mindedness, and focus on continual improvement.  Our theme for the year is the Power of One.  We hope to demonstrate, through action, how one person, one simple act, or one idea can make a change. 

The Power of One

One song can spark a moment
One whisper can wake the dream
One tree can start a forest 
One bird can herald spring 

One smile begins a friendship 
One handclasp lifts a soul
One star can guide a ship at sea 
One word can frame the goal 

One vote can change a nation
One sunbeam lights a room
One candle wipes out darkness 
One laugh will conquer gloom

One step must start each journey
One word must start each prayer
One hope will raise our spirits 
One touch can show you care 

One voice can speak with wisdom 
One heart can know what's true
One life can make a difference 
You see, it's up to you.
~Ashish Ram

I welcome your input as we work together to prepare your students to be “knowledgeable and inquiring citizens for action in a global society.”
