Principal’s Message: 

Dear Imai Families,

 Thank you for showering our staff with goodies during Teacher Appreciation week! We have an amazing group of teachers who go above and beyond so thank you for showing them how much they are appreciated. 

Did you get a chance to give us your input on our new logo? If you haven’t it’s not too late. We want to hear from you so please fill out the form. Feedback is due at the end of the week so don’t delay. We will use the feedback to finalize the Eagle logo and share it with the community.


This week our upper grade students are doing their CAASPP math assessment. Please continue to encourage them to try their best and to take their time reading the questions. Next week the fifth graders will take their science test and we will start with make-ups so if your child was absent for any of the assessments, we will pull them to work on what they missed. 


This year all  students in grades K-4 will return their chromebook at the end of the school year in order for the technology department to update them, clean them and replace broken parts. Please be on the lookout for the schedule. Fifth grade students will get to keep theirs or return it if attending private school next school year. 


Have a wonderful rest of the week.


Arline Siam
