Message from Principal Doug
Greetings AIM students and families,
As a reminder,
Remote learners are expected to attend and participate in ALL scheduled classes and to use their “Open periods” to complete coursework or connect with teachers that have open periods for additional support. Attendance is taken in each class.
In-person learners are expected to attend their entire AM/PM session every day. Attendance is taken daily. Students work in the “BIG room” or with a teacher during any open periods. If a student has a day with no classes, in-person learners are still expected to attend school at AIM (this is not a new expectation).
For the remainder of this year, to reward hard work and success, students that are making progress in ALL their classes can apply to work remotely on days they do not have scheduled classes. This application was reviewed during advisory today and is available for students to pick up from Dara at the front desk. Students can apply at the 40%, 60% & 80% progress report dates.
Please contact us if you have any attendance questions.

AIM Student Art
I miss being young, being careless and free
The world a treasure chest that belonged to me
When rain was teardrops, the oceans my bed
Trolls lived in my backyard, pixies in my shed
The wind whispered the sonnets of lost poets
The clouds revealed tales of past heroics
I could go swimming with mermaids, or dancing with fairies
I was a princess, a huntress, a pirate with a hat, red as cherries
I wandered in the depths of seas, and the tips of mountains
I rode on dragons, and bathed in enchanted fountains
I was a brave and noble knight, in the grandest of battles
An explorer whose cheeks flushed with the delight of my travels
I saw so many wonders, went on a myriad of adventures
My little fantasies, I can almost recollect all their splendors
I miss being young, I miss when the world was a stage
Letting my creativity go wild, my imagination uncaged
I miss the time when anything and everything was possible
Nowadays all that really seems to matter is what's plausible
I've gone out looking, but all the magic has disappeared
Everyone went away, left me to stay, exactly what I feared
I guess that's why I'm sad, the world has lost its wonder
And I'm all alone with only the memory to sit on and ponder
Just as the palace turned into a house, my trusty steed into a bike
I've gone from lively to void, and that's a very bitter bite
I don't know who to blame, the world or myself
But as it happens, the answers stuck on the top shelf
I wish I could escape to a fable, but life has whisked them away
He's locked them all up on a boat, that's already left the bay
I'll always remember though, what it felt like before reality took precedence
But even those recollections are ephemeral, never lasting in existence
