Principal’s Message: 


Dear Imai Families,

Our upper grades are continuing to do their CAASPP test. This week we started in ELA. Thank you for continuing to remind your child to bring a fully charged chromebook, eat a healthy and nutritious breakfast and to always do their very best.

Today is Administrator's Assistant day so please stop by this week to thank Ms. Marily and Ms. Nelly for everything they do for our school and all of our students.

We are beginning to recruit for next year’s School Site Council. Amy Imai’ School Site Council is composed of five parents and five staff members.  The School Site Council helps develop goals and actions for Imai’ School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA or site plan in short). They must also approve the site plan before it goes to the board. If you are interested in running to be a member of our SSC, please email [email protected] to add your name on the list. We will hold elections for SSC at the end of the school year.
