“You only have what you give away.”
Our Montessori Work: Children’s Open House
Saturday, September 16, 2017 9-11 am
Saturday, March 10, 2018 9-11 am
Twice during the school year you will be invited to a parent-child Open House. On these dates, our school will be open between 9-11:00 am. These mornings allow you to come to school with your child in an open house setting. This is a wonderful opportunity for your child to be the teacher and give you lessons on what (s)he has been learning. The teachers will be present, but this is truly a time for you to interact with your child in the classroom and see those brilliant Montessori materials in action. The children are always so proud to show you their work!

IMA Community Social Outreach
Saturday, November 18, 2017 9-11:00 am
Each year our IMA families come together to support a charity or service our community. In the past we have supported the following charities:
- A Book Drive for Exodus
- Sponsored a Family in Need through Riley Children’s Hospital
- Coin Drive and Monetary Support for the Alzheimer’s Association and Project Sunshine in honor of the Buskirk and McCray Families of IMA.
- Coin and Food Drive for the Merciful Help Center
On the day of the event, our IMA students, siblings, parents and other loved ones decorate cookies, make a craft together and we all enjoy one another’s company for a great cause! Children have such genuine and caring hearts! We strongly believe instilling the gifts of generosity, service and charity into your young child’s mind is a benefit learned at an early age and will continue throughout his/her life! Whether you’re able to make a contribution or not, please come and spend some time with our IMA family. You make being part of this amazing group so much fun, and the children always love to see one another at school events. Come join us!
Valentine’s Day Tea
Wednesday, February 14, 2018 2:00 pm
At IMA we traditionally host a Valentine’s Day Tea to celebrate the day. In the Primary classrooms we do not exchange Valentine’s cards, treats or gifts. It is difficult for the young child to create his or her own Valentine’s and then subsequently ask the child to ‘give away’ his/her work. Instead, we will host a special Valentine’s Tea where invitations will be sent to you (as the parents) to join us. We will bake special treats with the children and enjoy having you as our guests. The children truly love this annual event! In the Elementary, children create hand-made Valentines to share. They also celebrate the day with a special dessert!

What is Field Day? We journey over to Nimitz Park for a morning of outdoor games and activities. The children are divided into teams with the Elementary children leading them through the course of events such as a water balloon toss, an obstacle course, relay races and even a pit stop at the homemade popsicle station! It’s a terrific way to enjoy the May weather and the end-of-school excitement!
End of School Picnic

We love to end the school year with a simple potluck picnic as we send you off to celebrate summer!
