The Phoenix are ready to fly into the new school year. We are sad to see our “founding father” principal Dr. Maestre move onto a new role at Colonial High School, but we are proud of his accomplishments during our brief history. Congratulations to him on his well-earned promotion.
In preparation for the first day of school on Aug. 12, there are many pre-opening activities planned. Parents are encouraged to schedule a device pick-up appointment on Saturday, Aug. 3, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. or Wednesday, Aug. 7, from 12:30 to 6 p.m. See the website, http://tinyurl.com/IMSDevice2019, to schedule an appointment. Preliminary student schedules will be available during your pre-scheduled appointment. Parents and students are encouraged to attend Meet the Teacher on Aug. 8. Incoming 8th graders can visit between 10 and 11:30, 7th graders from 12:30 to 2, and 6th graders from 2:30 to 4 p.m.
PTSA hosts many fun events and fundraisers during the year to help support the school. All parents and members of the community are encouraged to join. Membership is just $10 and includes a discount card with special deals and local discounts for PTSA members. IMS STUDENTS are welcome to join and participate in meetings and events.
The first General Meeting of the PTSA will be in early September. Follow us on Facebook for breaking news.
Best of luck to our students and staff as the Phoenix soar into the new school year.
