Principal’s Message: 


Dear Imai Parents,


Staff Appreciation Week begins next week. We are very fortunate to have wonderful teachers and staff that make Imai a great place for our students. Our staff has been working tirelessly this year to support our students and help them progress this school year. Please join me and give a big thank you to our staff.  (We love Imai)


                                         400+ students and staff 


Congratulations to our students that reclassified and were celebrated last week at the Reclassification ceremony. Speaking multiple languages is their super power.

This is the LAST WEEK and your last chance to order your kids’ yearbook with free shipping delivered to school before the school year ends! Make sure you order before May 4th, so that your student(s) can sign their yearbooks in class with their friends before the school year gets out.


ORDER HERE! (You have to create an account, and assign your student to their teacher, so the book is delivered to the correct classroom!)

May 4th is the FINAL deadline for customized pages! 


Have a wonderful rest of the week!


Arline Siam
