Last week we spent as much time outside as we could soaking up the sun and enjoying the heat! We had a water balloon battle, we played Drip Drip Drop, created giant bubbles and did some solar etching! Check out our photos below!

THANK YOU everybody for joining us at our final family night of the year. We closed this year with some crazy games - Bunco and trivia - and an amazing improv show performed by several of our students. We had such a great time and we are so happy by the turnout - thank you for showing up and supporting your students!
We had dozens of photos of family night (Thanks Mr. Zach for taking on the role as photographer!) - please enjoy taking a look through them!

Last week we went green screen crazy and put ourselves in front of some fun backgrounds! We used a really cool app on the iPads called "Do Ink Green Scree" to make it happen! Check out our staff and student creations!
Welcome summer! (Almost!) We are so happy that it's warming up outside finally. I'm sure you will see us outside way more in the coming weeks.
Ms. Tory led a fun balloon challenge activity on a rainy day last week. The kids were given a task to make a balloon tower as tall as they could. Of course it morphed into something more and they emerged from the school with a super long balloon dragon!
Welcome to another edition of Master Chef! This time the students participated in a mystery basket challenge. Students were challenged to create a dish using the four mystery basket ingredients. They also had access to the Impact pantry. The mystery basket ingredients the students had to work with were: pretzels, shortcake, caramel candies and canned peaches! Check out the pictures below of the kid's creations!
Hi Everyone! I apologize, it's been a little while since I have posted a monthly blog! We have been so busy here at IMS, first we had the Oscars, Spring Break, visiting the 5th graders to let them know about the awesomeness that is !MPACT, then we had them come to IMS and hang out with us for 5th grade night, and most recently we took a group field trip to go see Avengers Endgame! We have had some really fun projects that we have been trying out though in the past couple months. One that I am particularly excited to share is that we have been trying to partner more and more with Clark Elementary since they are right across the road! Most recently we did a joint visit to the firehouse to thank the brave fireman for their service! The middle schoolers made them cookies while the elementary kids made them thank you cards! Coming up in May we will be traveling to Pine Lake to play Humans Vs. Zombies and we are planning our next family night that will be held in June! We're almost to the end of the year, our 8th graders will be taking their special 8th grade trip this month! We plan to get some really fun pictures of them as they go to iFly and Round1! I will post again at the end of the month with our family night news! ~Mrs. Tory
In preparation for our surprise PRIZE for our field trip to the new Avengers movie (winner gets to choose their seats at the movie for themselves and 3 friends!) we made it rain with tickets yesterday so all of the kids would have a chance to win!
The students won tickets for having the best carved watermelon, for planting flowers and weeding, (they liked weeding so much they created a weeding schedule for the rest of the month!). They also got tickets for keeping the kings spot in Goala and also for collecting trash around school!
IMS hosted spring break this year, so we had students from all five middle schools on campus with us! We had a great time making new friends and going on new field trips!
When we weren't at IMS doing build challenges or celebrating senior citizen day, we were on two awesome new field trips to the spring fair and Dave & Busters! Check out our pics of spring break below!
Wow! Its been a bit since I've updated the Impact blog. Prepare for a few posts about what we've been up to since the beginning of April!
The first week of April we did a new slime recipe. I know, you're wondering how could there be a new slime recipe when it feels like you've had every recipe all over your kitchen at home! We tried out chalkboard slime - a mixture of glue, contact solution and chalkboard paint. It created awesome bubbles, and you can even paint on it with chalkboard paint pens!
Thank you to everyone who came out for the !mpact Oscars last Friday! Our students had so much fun writing, filming and editing our movie "Tension in Detention." The ceremony was held last Friday at the Regal Cinemas at the Issaquah Highlands Theater. IMS !mpact won the Oscar for Best Short and the Oscar for best Screenplay by Sage Moorby and Miranda Joe! Thank you again, and check out our short "Good Idea, Bad Idea," below!
