iMiddle Parent and Community News

iMiddle news for the week of 11/10 - 11/14

Message from the Principal

Greetings,


iMiddle has a lot going on these next couple of weeks! This week we are excited to host tours for all of our feeder Elementary Schools to showcase what a great school we are!

This week we will be holding a community task force to get feedback on the new construction designs that will be used to modernize our school. Please see dates below if you are interested in joining us. We have combined this meeting with the Parent Foundation meeting and the Principal will give some updates related to our Parent Foundation immediately following the task force meeting.

Don't forget that school is closed this TUESDAY.


Calling all DADs & male role models (uncles, mentors, brothers etc.)

Please save the date- November 20th from 12:30 -1:30


iMiddle will be hosting a special school lunch (BBQ) for just the dads (or other male role models) of iMiddle. November 20th is National Parent Involvement Day and we would like to celebrate this day by bringing Dads and students together on campus!


  • Did you know that fathers who are involved in their children's schools and academic achievement, regardless of their own educational level, are increasing the chances their child will graduate from high school, perhaps go to vocational school, or even to college? Studies also show that a father's involvement in a children's school activities protects at-risk children from failing or dropping out. In addition, a father's involvement is associated with positive child characteristics such as empathy, self-esteem, self-control, psychological well-being, social competence, and life skills.
  • If you can make this special BBQ, we will invite your child to have lunch with you in the quad and we will also be initiating a special contest- boys and girls Vs DADS.
  • Please RSVP so we know how much food to prep for by clicking the link below and filling out the short form. Thank you an we look for to seeing DADS on the 20th!

Congratulations to our Hawk Football players! The Hawks are Q-bowl bound - The game will be on Saturday, November 15th at 6:00 PM at Madison.

One of our parents stated that they are an awesome squad, but are still considered the underdogs against Imperial Empire Ducks, so we're calling everyone out for support. Hope to see all iMiddle fans there to show support to our youth players!
