Weekly Updates - September 1st, 2019

Dear Parents,


I want to first give everyone my best wishes for you and your family on Labor Day when we honor all workers. In observance of Labor Day, MIMS will be closed Monday, 9/2/19.


The following are a few announcements for the week of 9/2/19.


1. Generation Ready

We are offering this fantastic workshop to all parents. It’s about understanding culture differences and building a harmonious community in a culturally diverse society. To accommodate everyone’s busy schedule, we offer this 2-hour workshop offered on:

a. Satruday, 9/7/19, 9:00 AM

b. Monday, 9/16/19 and Friday, 9/20/19, 9:00 AM, 1:00 PM, 6:00 PM

Please use this link to sign up.


2. Friday free dress

We are going to continue the tradition and welcome students to come to school in free dress. Please note that the basic dress code still applies – no vulgar language on shirt, no dresses that’s too revealing, ect.


3. Friday lunch with parents

We are going to continue to tradition and welcome parents to join students for lunch. However, with the number of students increasing each year, our cafeteria is running out of seats. Our short-term solution is to use some of the folding tables/chairs in conjunction with the outdoor seating area just outside of the cafeteria. The long-term solution is to add more cafeteria tables – it’s in the works, but it will take quite a while before new tables arrive.


4. Open House

a. 9/10/19, 5:00 to 7:00, 6th to 8th grade

b. 9/11/19, 5:00 to 7:00, prek to 5th grade

c. Teachers will talk about their policies and procedures, preferred way of communication,


5. Mid-Autumn Festival

Thanks to PTO, this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival is on Friday, 9/13/19 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM. We will pass out the flyers in Tuesday’s folder on 9/10/19.


6. First fire drill

We have successfully conducted our first fire drill. Our goal is to complete the drill in 5 minutes next time.


7. Main channel of communication

My goal is to migrate all official announcements to MIMS’ website. That means the principal’s weekly updates will be posted on MIMS’ website on a weekly basis and each teacher will post their weekly news/updates on MIMS’ website on a weekly basis.
