Did you miss WalkAbout training?  
We are offering a second and final training of the year on Thursday October 26th at 6:00 in the IMS Library.  Come hear about the program from principal Seth Adams and get involved in this vibrant program that enhances community at IMS!
Did you attend our training this September and are wondering why you have not received an email from us with the link?  We have had several emails that have bounced back, probably because we read them incorrectly from the sign in sheet. If this is you, please reach out to and help us straighten out our email address for you. Thank you so much! We don't want anyone to miss out on being a part of the team!
Oct 26th to 27th
We need your help to make this fundraiser successful. Please consider helping us with the following jobs:
1.  Counting Days (counting money and orders) - If you enjoy the sound of a 10-key machine and the clacking of calculators, then the counting job is for you!  Work with other volunteers to help count and tabulate the magazine orders received on each collection day.  Although the time slot starts at 8:15, please feel free to sign up if you can join us later in the morning (please just send an email with the time you will arrive). The school can't run the Magazine Drive without our valuable Counters.
2.  Prize Days (handing out student prizes) - Come join us during the students' lunch time to help hand out the prizes the students have earned through their industrious selling efforts.  The students are super excited to get their prizes, so that makes this an especially fun way to get involved.
If you have any questions please contact Pete Norby at
Thank you so much for your help.
Monday, Nov. 6
We need a crew of 30 parents to help us check student's vision and hearing. It's only a 3 hours commitment, 7:45 to 10:45. No training needed, we provide that at the time. This is a short and sweet way to help the school and students. Please join us, we can't do it without you!
