IMS Annual Career Day - January 26th

IMS Career Fair is happening this year - virtually! The school is seeking out volunteers to provide a short (no more than 10 minutes) video presentation of his/her career/job/profession. We are looking for a variety of industries, education levels, and types of careers, so if you or someone you know has a job that you want to share with our middle schoolers, we would love to hear from you! 

All videos will be recorded and uploaded to Flipgrid. If you're interested in participating, check out the Flipgrid page for more information and a quick tutorial about how to record and use the features in Flipgrid.

Videos will be accepted between now and Monday, January 18th. If you have any questions about how this will work, ideas about how to participate, or any other wonderings, please reach out to Kalie Dotson.

Volunteer at IMS!

Even with COVID-19, volunteers are appreciated and wanted at IMS!

With COVID-19, there will be no volunteers physically at the school at this time. However, our hope is that we can get back to volunteering soon - or may have virtual volunteer opportunities! We have a complete list of volunteer opportunities. Click here to see the list. Once you add your name to any of the events or programs, you will be contacted by the chairperson/s to sign up for specific time slots or to provide certain items. You can remove yourself from any list at any time by going to, My Account.

8th Grade Transition Night (for Families new to U.S. High Schools)
