Pi day
While in Russia this Sunday people celebrate Maslenitsa, math lovers sing praises to the π number.
Physicists invented by this holiday and chosen the day of March 14 for the reason: if you write down the date of this day in American format ( indicate first the month and after the date), you will see 3/14.  It's equal to the first numbers of Pi or 3.14.

Another curious fact is in this day was born Albert Einstein - the creator of the relativity theory!

We wanted to celebrate this day too and organized math day on this Friday.The guys competed on the QUIZIZZ platform with students from the Podar Ort International School, India.
Out of 30 participants from both sides, Timur Uguz gave most of the right answers and brought too our school first place.Two other AIS students entered the top five.

Also, on the school forum passed the tournament at the mental math on the Math-Drills platform.
The list of  winners:

IB Student Conferences: Opportunities for Empowerment

Student conferences within IB PYP programme were held at AIS to reflect the students’ progress in academic disciplines and core competencies under the new school strategy on April 10-11.

Students of KG1 - Grade 2 and their parents participated in the Three-Way Conferences that involved three parties: students, parents and teachers. The conference participants discussed students’ progress and achievements emphasizing on the strengths and areas for improvement as well as setting future goals for the next academic year and the ways to assist in their attainment. AIS students shared their thoughts and ideas on inquiries conducted, assessed their role in inquiry activities, demonstrated the works, selected by them well in advance with the teacher’s support, and their portfolios.

The format of Student Led Conferences for Grade 3 - Grade 6 allowed the students to arrange and run conferences on their own. The student portfolio was the main focus of the conferences as it compiles many great examples from different units of inquiry. It gives the students the chance to take full ownership of their work while making their parents proud of all that they have done throughout the year.

The days of student conferences turned to be special for the entire school community and gave our students the unique opportunities for empowerment and engagement. We would like to express gratitude to all AIS families for taking the time to recognize the full worth of a strong IB education!
