Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Classroom teachers will share the story of Juneteenth with students prior to the holiday to educate them on the origins of the holiday.

iPad Collection

We are in the midst of collecting students’ iPads from home. Students in grades K, 1, 2, 4, and 5 may keep their chargers at home.

Grade 3 students must return their originally issued chargers to school as we will be providing new iPads and chargers to our rising fourth graders in September. Note that all data will be erased on these retired devices. Please have your child connect with our technology team before leaving for the school year to back-up any needed materials that may be stored on the iPad.

All returning IMES students will be getting devices back in their classrooms in September. Current 5th graders will receive their iPads at JJMS in the fall.

Welcome to Kindergarten!

This year, we are embedding a new social and emotional experience in our Kindergarten transition process. We are borrowing ideas from a program called “Bears, Bears Everywhere” to support children’s social emotional health in the classroom.

At Increase Miller, instead of bears, we will be using eagles!

This month, during Kindergarten screenings, each child was given an eagle to take home generously donated by IMES PTO. We are asking families to take pictures of their child with their special eagle during their summer adventures! In September, we will ask you to share these photos with classmates and teachers.

Please have your child bring their special eagle, whom they will name, to Kindergarten Visitation scheduled for August 31, 2022. Your child should also bring their eagle on the first day of school, September 6, 2022. Kindergarten classroom teachers will share more details with you in their communication prior to the first day of school.

You can access our our summer Eddie the Eagle Padlet this summer as you get to know Increase Miller and our school community.

Eddie the Eagle padlet


We look forward to seeing you at the IMES PTO Ice Cream Social on Tuesday, June 14 at 4 pm on the IM playground.
