News & Reminders
from Imai PTA
November 9, 2021

New stuff this week! Here are some important news bits for you to know about things happening with Imai PTA for students and parents:

  • NEW SCHOOL T-SHIRTS free for students! Reserve your size this week
  • HOLIDAY GIFT CARD DRIVE for less fortunate families in our immediate area 
  • IMAI PTA GENERAL MEETING next Wednesday, Nov. 17
  • DONATE OLD DIGITAL CAMERAS to school for student/yearbook use
  • SAVE ON HOLIDAY CARDS AT MINTED.COM and earn funds for Imai PTA

NEW SCHOOL T-SHIRTS: We're finally making new t-shirts with our new school name!  All students will receive one, but to help us finalize our order, please fill out this short form to reserve the right size for your student(s) by next Monday, Nov. 15. Shirts will arrive and be distributed in December. Additional shirts (in kid and adult sizes for $10 each) can be pre-ordered via this separate reservation form.

GIFT CARD DRIVE FOR THE HOLIDAYS: As you may know, there are families in our school district that struggle to meet basic needs, and the holiday times can be especially tough. We've done gift drives in prior years, but due to pandemic logistics this year, we are collecting gift cards so families can choose what they need for both Thanksgiving and for December holidays. Please consider donating and helping out our neighbors in need!
Gift cards should be electronic only, sent or forwarded to Principal Siam (asiam@mvwsd.org) who will then send them on to the district office for distribution. Please purchase gift cards in $20 increments to make it easier to distribute them across many families.
GIFT CARD DRIVE 1 for THANKSGIVING: Purchase gift cards for Albertsons/Safeway or Walmart by November 19.
GIFT CARD DRIVE 2 for DECEMBER HOLIDAYS: Purchase gift cards for Target or Walmart by December 15.

IMAI PTA Meeting Next Wednesday: Please join us for our November association meeting next Wednesday, Nov. 17, at 7pm (on Zoom) for updates on all our goings-on at school from our principal and PTA leaders.  Additionally, we'll be voting to ratify our amended bylaws to finalize our name change. Register/RSVP here for the zoom meeting and to get meeting materials in advance. 

Donate Old Digital Cameras: Cameras are needed at school for some of our 5th grade students to take photos for the yearbook (since parents aren't on campus to do it). If you have any digital cameras collecting dust in your home, might you donate them to the office for occasional use around school? A working charger/cable and a small memory card is requested with the camera. Contact the office or just drop them off anytime. Thank you!

Save on Holiday Cards at Minted.com: Got holiday cards? Order from minted.com and raise funds for Imai PTA! Use promo code FUNDRAISEIMAI at checkout to save 20% off all items (except fine art prints and wedding stationery) and 15% of your purchase comes back to Imai PTA.


Have a great week!
