Hello Everyone! We had a super exciting January here at IMS IMPACT to welcome in the new year! We were able to get our Oscar script written and film the movie for the big screen coming up on March 22nd! All of our actors did an amazing job and gave us 110% while filming and we are super proud of them! We also had our all !MPACT event here at IMS Games, Games, Games where we got to host all the other middle schools and interact with some new friends! Some of my favorite activities from January were the STEM activity film canister rockets Mrs. Megan did and a partner 2v2 challenge that got a little messy, but the kids had fun! Check out the video below for one of the challenges! Next month we will be going to play Whirly Ball and heading down to Clark Elementary to do a buddies activity with the elementary kids! Make sure to check back each week for Mrs. Megan's posts on our activities and to see some fun pictures!
This year at Impact we are trying to focus more on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) projects. Yesterday we made out own film canister rockets. We tried two different variations of building up the pressure in the cans so they would launch in the air: baking soda and vinegar and Alka Seltzer and water. It took a few tries to figure out the best ratio and method, but soon we had some awesome explosions! Check out the videos below to get an idea of our process (and the mess)!

Last week we had a nice three day week to ease back into busy schedules! We kept things low-key with a lot of the student's favorites - Omnikin Ball Goala (see video below!), Cookie Monster fudge, and some good old fashioned Werewolves. We also spent some time during free times perfecting our "Cups" performance - check that out below, too!
Stay tuned for another post later this week!
Hi Everyone! We were so excited to close out the year with a super fun winter break over at PCMS! IMS had the most kids at the camp so it was nice to have so many familiar faces! We had so much fun creating our own holidays, playin virtual reality games, playing goala, building a giant cardboard fort and so much more! We also got to have Uncle's Games come in and show us some brand new games to play! I am veyr excited to mention that we will be having 2 new students join us at IMS !MPACT in January. Please help us welcome Max and Gabriella to IMS family! We are so happy to have them and cannot wait for them to join in on all the fun activities thta we have planned for this month!
