WARM FEET = WARM HEART - And a great present idea!
We have wonderful Strideline socks for sale that are made just for IMS students.
Please click here to see our flyer with pictures of several designs and colors.  
And click here to order your socks. 
Believe it or not, the founders of Strideline are former IMS students, so they are giving back to a special cause.
Socks are just $7/pair - usually $18/pair - but Strideline has graciously offered to help the IMS Angel Program.
A portion of the sales will go straight to the Angel Program which helps IMS families in need.
If you have any questions, please email Leslie or Heidi at
We appreciate your support!

Vision and Hearing Volunteers Needed!
Nov 19th
Monday, Nov. 19 is Vision and Hearing day at IMS. We need a crew of 20 parents to help us check only the 7th grade student’s vision and hearing. It’s only a 3 hour commitment, 7:30 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!
