Message from Principal Doug

Greetings AIM students and families, Hey Graduating Seniors! We are working with a local company to make yard signs available for purchase. They have kept the cost affordable (About $13) and are creating an online store for you to make and customize your order.

We will send out a link as soon as we get it! Please contact us if the cost is a barrier. We want everyone to have a yard sign that wants one. See below for examples of the different options available.

AIM Student Poetry

Poetry class students have been busy creating!


Poem by: Savannah S.


I Once Dreamt You Blonde


I once dreamt you blonde,

Gold twine, woven sunshine.

You held me till morning dawned,

You promised to find me, in time.


I once dreamt you raven,

Black silk, smoothe as wine.

Your hand in my hair, a callused haven,

You promised to find me, in time.


I once dreamt you chestnut,

Rough oak, knitted and bind.

You kissed my eyelids when they shut,

You promised to find me, in time.


I once dreamt you phoenix,

Firelight and fox fur combined,

You gazed down at me, bewitched.

You promised to find me, in time.


Every time I close my eyes, you wear a different guise.

So far away, you image sways, in the faces every day.

All so familiar, and yet a stranger...


I'll find you, in time.


Poem by Jerry S.


Some day I wake up feeling like I don't know why I'm here

Thinking that should be my last mess up

That'll be the last day I hold dear

I don't want no fame I don't want handouts

I don't want my name running out of your mouth

I just want a big safe inside of my house

I just want enough money to help the fam out

I just want to feel okay, sometime I be feeling like the man

An other days I just feel lonely

I swear that I be hurting and I'm fighting to keep it on the lowkey

I Got a lot a stress and I ain't tryna lean it on the homies, So I keep it on me

Community Service Requirement Waived for 2021 Seniors

Important update!

The district has made the decision to waive the senior community service requirement for the class of 2021. The expectation is for the requirement to be re-instated for future graduating classes. Graduating seniors this year do not have to do community service hours!
