Message from our PTA President, Kim Comstock
Dear IMS Families,
Welcome back to our ‘new’ Islander Middle School! I hope you all enjoyed a fun and relaxing summer with your families and are ready for the fresh start and routine of a new school year.
Mark your calendar for the IMS PTSA Welcome Coffee on Thursday, September 1st from 9:30-10:30am. This will be a fun opportunity to get a glimpse of our newly renovated school, hear from our beloved principals, be introduced to the 2016-17 PTSA Board, reconnect with old friends and meet some new ones! We will also have the volunteer sign-up sheets available for many of the programs that the PTSA sponsors throughout the year. Our parent volunteers make wonderful things happen at IMS and we’d love to have you join our active parent community! read more

Golden Acorn Award Honorees!
The Golden Acorn is a national PTSA Award that recognizes an IMS PTSA volunteer for their exceptional dedication and service to our IMS students. The IMS PTSA would like to congratulate our two 2015-16 Islander Middle School Golden Acorn honorees; Carolyn Pirak and Cristi Duea!
Carolyn Pirak has been an innovative and collaborative volunteer at IMS for several years and is the driving force behind continually improving and successfully organizing Back2School events for our new and returning students each Fall.
Cristi Duea‘s positive energy and enthusiasm for fundraising has benefitted IMS greatly this year. Her creativity and fundraising experience has effectively brought balance to our budget for this school year and laid a solid foundation for 2016-17.
Thank you Carolyn and Cristi for your outstanding service!
