Imai Gazette 02/28/24

Principal’s Message: 


Dear Imai Families,

March 1st is the first day of Women’s history month. The National Women's History Month's theme for 2024 celebrates Women Who Advocate for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.” The theme recognizes women throughout the country who understand that, for a positive future, we need to eliminate bias and discrimination entirely from our lives and institutions. We will start out the mornings with our announcements learning about different important women in history and starting out with Amy Imai. Before the end of the month we will have our Women’s Voices Assembly (3/20 8:30-10:00 AM) and we are looking for volunteers to facilitate.  Interest form (due 3/12/24).


This week teachers are working on report cards and you will receive them next week via email. Report cards are an opportunity to celebrate your child’s accomplishments as well as the time to check how they are progressing and what areas are needed for improvement.
