After a busy finale to 2018, The Innovation Middle Phoenix are ready to fly into 2019!
The Phoenix closed out 2018 with many fun activities. On Dec. 10, the Boys Choir performed at the Orlando Magic basketball game. PTSA hosted the second dance of the year on Dec. 14. IMS students picked the theme of Winter/Summer. Even though the weather forced the dance to be held inside, everyone had a blast!
PTSA hosted a holiday mixer on Dec. 18 to thank volunteers who support PTSA with their time and resources. Thanks to our neighbors at Beazer Homes for providing a fun and festive location.
PTSA awarded Fall Grants in December. Money was awarded to a variety of departments including an anti-bullying presentation for all students, technical support for ESOL staff, supplies for chess and art clubs, the school store and seed money to start an aquaponics system within our school! Thanks, everyone, for all you do to support PTSA and, in turn, IMS!
A special congratulations to Jr. Thespian Troupe #89478. They did so well at the regional competition in December with their original one-act play, Zombie Apocalypse, that they were selected to move on to the state competition in late January. We hope you all “break a leg” at the state competition!
The National PTA is in the process of selecting their regional representatives in the National Reflection Arts Contest. Thanks and good luck to Madeline Peacock, Emily Ali and Sabrina Vellacolt for submitting original pieces. All of IMS is rooting for you!
With the new calendar year, it will soon be time to start making decisions about electives for the next school year. IMS will host the second annual electives showcase on Jan. 24. This event is for IMS students so they can explore the wide variety of electives, sports and clubs available at our school. Vendor tables are available. Send a note to firstvp@innovationmiddlePTSA.org if you are interested. Special consideration will be given to educational vendors.
