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!
