The IMS PTSA welcomes our incoming 6th graders and families from IVE to our beautiful new school! 

Purchase an engraved 4x8 brick for one or all of your children, or for future alumni.

We invite you to 'cement' your legacy as the first class to attend all 3 years at the new IMS by purchasing an engraved brick.  Bricks are only $50.00 and will be permanently installed at the main entrance of our new school.  Makes a great graduation gift!  Please visit to purchase or for more information. 

Purchasing a brick is open to ALL IVE families!!!
The PTSA is selling bricks this spring as a unique opportunity to be a part of our new building and to raise much needed funds to continue to provide and support all the programs that the PTSA provides, including classroom funds and the Angel Program. Your first 4x8 brick is $50.00, additional bricks are only $40.00!  Don't miss this chance!
