Dear Islander Families,
We hope that you all are enjoying some much deserved sunny weather and relaxation with your families this summer. We understand how important it is to disconnect and refuel during the July and August months.
We have included some important dates to mark on your calendars as we prepare for the first weeks of the 2017/2018 school year:
• August 8 – IMS offices open.
• August 14 – Registrar returns for registration of families new to the District.
• August 21 – IMS Back 2 School Day (more information will be communicated in August). We know this day holds an eclipse, and understand that some families will not be able to attend. Please know there will be opportunities to accomplish all the tasks of the Back 2 School day at other times.
• August 30 – First Day of School (2:50 pm dismissal for all students).
• August 31 @ 9:30 am – Welcome Parent Coffee (IMS Commons)
• September 6 @ 5:00 pm – 6th grade and New Families Welcome Pizza Dinner (IMS Commons)
• September 12 @ 6:30 pm – 7/8 Curriculum Night
• September 19 @ 6:30 pm – 6th grade Curriculum Night
We look forward to seeing all of the kids on the first day of school, Wednesday, August 30th! Please remember that we have a special schedule on that first day where 6th graders and 8th grade Web Leaders attend a full day of school (8:25 am to 2:50 pm) whereas the 7th and 8th graders attend a half-day of school (11:25 am to 2:50 pm).
