Please donate Legos!

IVE could desperately use some more Legos in the Resource Room.  Playing with Legos is highly motivating to kids, very helpful for their dexterity AND they build things together and learn to share.  Please consider donating your old, random, small or large (preschool size) Legos for educational purposes.  Deliver to the office in care of Natalie Watters. 

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! 

Welcome to IMS and GO PANTHERS!!
