May 2016

Welcome Visitors:                                                           

I have been mentioning the nice weather for a few weeks now.  I imagine it is on the way, perhaps it just took a brief detour.  When it finally arrives, I will be looking forward to the children enjoying the great outdoors.  I want to thank our IMS parents for supporting our school dress code.  Details can be found on page 14 of the student planner.                                         
The month of May has us participating in numerous recognitions, awards ceremonies, and concerts.  Be on the lookout for dates and times which can be found on our district website.

Our sixth and seventh grade students will be voting on our student government officers for the 2016-17 school year.  Eighth graders will vote on a King and Queen of the Conga Line for the Grade 8 Moving Up Dance.  Voting takes place on Tuesday, May 17, in the high school gymnasium between 2:30 and 9:00 PM.   

This is the same day parents will vote on the school budget and exercise the right to vote and make it a family affair.  This is the same night as the Festival of the Arts.
We are entering the final exam season and changes in schedules will occur.  Parents should review planners to note any subject-specific information.  In reference to finals week, we are waiting on details from our transportation office in reference to buses.  Once we have this information we will share it with you.  
Course requests should be coming home via mail shortly.  Please review, sign, and  return them by May 25.
All parent letters expressing a child’s educational needs for next year should have been mailed by this time.
