Principal’s Message: 


 Dear Imai Families,

Our first EagleFest was a huge success. Thank you to everyone that volunteered their time and for the committee that worked so hard to make this all possible. It was wonderful seeing so many happy faces enjoying the activities. 

Library books are due on May 20th. Please make sure you have your child return their library books 

before the deadline. 

The CSMA Art lessons have concluded for the school year -
please click here to view the completed Art4Schools Digital Art Show showcasing your students’ work from throughout the school year.

This digital exhibition includes artwork curated by each young artist, who was given the opportunity to select the piece they most wanted to share and to reflect on their progress throughout the program.  We hope you enjoy these wonderful works of Art created by our Imai students.

TK-4 grade students: Turn in Chromebooks by end of year

MVWSD is proud to provide a device for learning to every student, as well as access to the Internet both at home and school. Regular access to the Internet facilitates instruction by allowing students to research and communicate, and ensures equitable access to learning for all students. 


Please help us keep our 1:1 program and student devices in good working order by making sure your children (grades TK-4 only) return their Chromebooks to their homeroom teachers before the last day of school. All students (grades TK-7) who are not returning in the fall should turn in Chromebooks by June 3.


If you are returning in the fall, your TK-4 student’s Chromebook will be re-issued to your student in August. For questions, please contact Jon Aker at [email protected].


View and comment on MVWSD’s Local Control Accountability Plan draft 

 The District is finalizing its draft of the LCAP (Local Control Accountability Plan). This is the District’s three-year plan that corresponds with the first three years of the District’s new Strategic Plan 2027. These documents are the blueprints that guide all of the District’s work for the benefit of our students.

 Beginning May 18, stakeholders are welcome to comment on the draft LCAP plan. You may read the presentation and supporting materials at mvwsd.org/lcap and make comments. The comments form closes on May 25. Stakeholders may also attend the public hearing during the Board of Trustees meeting on Thursday, June 2 at 6 p.m. on Zoom (the link is: mvwsd.org/trustees).

May Better Together Infographic 

May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, which celebrates the histories of Americans hailing from across the Asian continent and from the Pacific islands of Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia. May 7, 1843, marks the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants to the United States. And May 10, 1869, or Golden Spike Day, recognizes the completion of the first transcontinental railroad in the U.S., which had significant contributions from Chinese workers. AAPI Heritage Month gives us a chance to celebrate and center the unique journey of all AAPI immigrants and citizens in the United States and their unique life experiences, traditions, and cultures. Please see the attached flyers or visit http://mvwsd.org/bettertogetherMVWSD.


MVWSD seeking District Equity Advisory Committee members

MVWSD is continuing our work by engaging meaningfully with the community on issues of equity through the District Equity Advisory Committee (DEAC). The goal of the DEAC is to provide feedback to the Superintendent on how to support MVWSD towards achieving its goals of becoming a more equitable and inclusive school district.

 We are seeking a combination of district-level leaders, principals, teachers, staff members, and parent participants who represent the interests of both elementary and middle schools. Committee members will be expected to attend and participate virtually in meetings held monthly (on average) online during the 2022-23 school year in the evening hours. The average commitment will be approximately 20 hours per academic school year. 

 Applications are due by June 3 and found at this link. More information is at https://www.mvwsd.org/about/committees.
