Weekly Updates - May 22nd, 2020
I hope everyone had a great week. I just have a couple quick announcements to wrap-up this week.
1. Student check-out. You should have received an email about the pick-up date/time/location for your child’s belongings. Here are some updates about the pick-up.
a) If the letter stated, the pick-up location was “side of the building” – it means the school bus lane. Please park in the teacher’s parking lot.
b) I sent a second email to middle school parents early this week. Your child’s belongings will be ready for pick-up regardless his/her teacher came back to school this week.
c) The weather report says we will be getting some rain next week. Please plan accordingly.
d) 8th grade biology students – please bring back the textbook
e) 5th grade students who are not returning to MIMS next year and all 8th grade students – please bring back library books and any technology items you checked out from school.
2. I want to give middle school teachers and Ms. Colion a shout-out for planning the 8th grade promotion ceremony. Thank you all for your hard work.
Thank you all for your support and I wish everyone a safe and restful Memorial Holiday weekend!
Chung Ying, Principal
Originating from a progressive vision of Houston ISD, Mandarin Immersion Magnet School is one of the largest immersion schools teaching Mandarin in the US. Students are immersed in a culture-rich environment, allowing them to become bi-cultural bi-literate citizens.
MIMS was awarded a Citation of Design Excellence and recognized for its cultural transparency and integration, as well as its utilization of Chinese cultural elements throughout the campus.
Public School Review places MIMS at the top of the diverse school list in Texas and the U.S.
