iMiddle news for the week of 11/17 - 11/21

Message from Principal Labas


This week iMiddle is celebrating National Parent Involvement Day on November 20th from 12:30-1:30 by inviting our iMiddle Dads to school from 12:30-1:30. Over 30 years of research indicates that when parents are strategically involved in children's learning at school and at home, student achievement significantly improves and schools are more effective. We hope to see all Dads or Male Role Models at 12:30 on Thursday for a special BBQ at iMiddle. Please fill out the short form below in the link so we know how much food to cook. We will invite your child back to have lunch with you when you arrive at school.

I hope you can come to Chipotle this Wednesday from 4:00-8:00 PM!

Make dinner a selfless act by joining us for a fundraiser to support Innovation Middle School. Come into the 5650 Balboa Ave. Chipotle on Wednesday, November 19th, from 4:00pm to 8:00pm. Bring in this flyer, show it on your smartphone or tell the cashier you're supporting the cause to make sure that 50% of the proceeds will be donated to Innovation Middle School. You do not need the flyer, just tell them your are with iMiddle for the fundraiser.

Parents, this Friday iMiddle will be on Minimum day schedule. Students will be dismissed at the regular minimum bell time schedule-1:14 PM. Please make arrangements to pick up your child early on Friday. Other scheduled minimum days are below.
