On behalf of the Imai staff, thank you for your continued support throughout this school year. 

If your child is in second or fourth grade, please have them return their chromebook to their teacher the last week of school. We are collecting them for upgrades and they will get them back in August. If you are moving out of the area and are not planning on returning, please return your chromebook to the office before the last day of school. 


Have a wonderful rest of the week !

Look Around, Look Within: Mental Health Awareness Month

 This month we’ve been sharing about ways to prioritize our mental health. As we look toward summer, strong connections with our neighbors can play a vital role in supporting our mental health. Building a supportive and inclusive community helps reduce feelings of isolation and fosters a sense of belonging. Get involved with local events, volunteer opportunities, or simply start a conversation with a neighbor. 


The City of Mountain View offers a variety of opportunities to contribute your time and skills to your community. Learn more here:


VolunteerMatch is an additional resource for learning about volunteering opportunities in and around our community: Volunteer Opportunities in Mountain View


Let’s prioritize mental health and connectedness in our communities! 


Free and low cost summer programs 

Summer is around the corner, so it’s time to explore ways to keep your children engaged when school ends! Check out InPlay’s free online search service sponsored by Santa Clara County and our school district. You’ll find thousands of local and affordable programs that will challenge, inspire, and entertain your children to minimize summer brain drain.


With days left in the school year, MVEF has raised 95% of the stretch goal!!

This year, and every year, MVEF-funded programs have enriched the experience of every student in MVWSD. As the last day of school approaches, student performances are wrapping up, art portfolios are coming home, final papers are being written, and garden beds are being prepared for the summer.

With 95% raised and just $55k left to go, we are SO CLOSE to achieving the $1,200,000 stretch goal for 2022-23! Can you help us pass the finish line?

MVEF Volunteers needed for Summer and Back-to-School Activities

MVEF is seeking additional volunteers from every MVWSD school and in every neighborhood. Volunteering with MVEF is a great way to learn more about Public School Funding in California and to meet families from every neighborhood in MVWSD! MVEF volunteers work collaboratively with PTAs, school communities, and neighborhoods to ensure that information about our mission and impact reaches everyone in the right way. We are coordinating training for MVEF volunteers so sign up soon! To learn more:


Health and Wellness Parenting Tip: Youth Depression

All children feel sad or moody at times. But when a sad or bad mood lasts for weeks or longer — and when there are other changes in how a child acts — it could be a sign of depression. If you think your child is depressed, talk with them. Let them know you want to understand what they are going through. Listen if they want to speak.


To learn more about depression, click here.


Here are some signs that your child may have Depression: 

  1. Negative outlook. Children who feel depressed may be hard on themselves or on others. They might focus on failures and setbacks. It may be hard for them to see the good parts of things, or the good parts of themselves.
  2. Low energy, effort, interest, enjoyment. Your child may lose interest in things they used to enjoy. They may not seem to care. They may put less effort into schoolwork or tasks at home. Things seem to take too much effort. Nothing seems fun or enjoyable.
  3. Doing poorly at school. When a child feels depressed, schoolwork can seem harder. They may not complete their work, show effort, or study as much for tests. Their grades may drop.
  4. Pulling away from friends and family. Your child may spend more time alone, less time with friends, or seem distant.

    Keep in mind that these are NOT ALL the signs of Depression. There are many more signs that a parent can find in their child. Identifying the signs of Depression is the first step to understanding our child. If your child is thinking or talking of suicide, please visit the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline website, call 1-800-273-8255, or call or text 988.
