Learning “Erupts” at Imagine West

Students in Mr. Jason Breeden’s 5th grade class took hands-on learning to a new level last week as they mixed their Science lesson with the great outdoors. Using yeast to serve as the catalyst in their chemistry experiment, the students had an ”erupting” good time!

Arrival Reminders for Car Riders

Please remember that students who arrive at school in cars can enter the building beginning at 7:30 each morning. Parents should pull as far forward as possible in our single-lane car rider line so a staff member can get students safely from their vehicle. Students arriving prior to 7:30 should not be left unattended in the parking lot or on the sidwalk. Thank you  for helping us keep our students safe at Imagine West!
