Urgent Message from Mr. Rice

Please see below for a message from Mr. Rice regarding the recent threats at Imagine Andrews.

May 19, 2017

Greetings Imagine Andrews Families,

As your partner in education, there is nothing more important than the safety and health of our scholars. That’s why I am writing to share with you a positive update on the threat made against our school earlier this week.

After a swift and thorough investigation conducted by local and federal law enforcement, it was determined that the threat made against our school was a prank. The person has been identified. We are working with law enforcement and within our district policies to determine appropriate disciplinary action.

Families, I want to reassure you that our campus has been thoroughly investigated by base security forces. Our building is clear of any safety concerns and our learning environment remains a nurturing, safe environment for all scholars. I encourage you to use these facts in answering questions or concerns your child may have.

Please also use this as an opportunity to remind your child that actions have consequences, and it is important we keep our school environment free from pranks and focused on academic success.

Should you have further questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me directly. As always, thank you for the privilege of partnering with you to educate your child at Imagine Andrews.


H. Douglas Rice II, Principal

Poetry/Figurative Language Project

Today, students received their last project for the 2017 school year!

We are doing a small project to show the use of figurative language in poetry.

Students must choose a favorite (school-appropriate) poem or song to analyze.  Print out the words or lyrics and label 10 examples of figurative language.  Examples include alliteration, hyperbole, simile, metaphor, onomatopoeia, and personification.  Additionally, there are two worksheets to complete with this project.  Some time will be spent on this in class, but it will need to be completed at home.

If a student is truly unable to access a printer, please let me know by this Friday (May 19th).

The project is due on Thursday, June 1st.

Homework 5/15

Students in class section 51 did not receive their homework packet today.  They will receive the Unit 6.3 homework tomorrow.  I will allow these students some time in class to work on the packet to make up for the fact that they received it a day later than usual.

The Unit 6.3 homework packet is due this Friday, May 19th.

Picnic Lunch on May 19th

See the message below about our school's picnic lunch next Friday:

On May 19, 2017, the scholars at Imagine Andrews will have a picnic style lunch on the side lawn (near Yuma Rd.). Scholars are encouraged to bring blankets to eat on as they sit in the grass area. Lunches will be served in picnic friendly packaging and the food will also be picnic friendly. If scholars pack their lunches, they also need to pack food that they can comfortably eat outside (i.e. cold sandwiches, chips and juice boxes).

Field Trip/Field Day Incentive

The following letter went home this afternoon:

We are in the home stretch for the school year!  As the last day of school gets closer, our students tend to get antsy.  To keep our students engaged and ready to learn, we have some awesome activities planned and are going to implement an incentive challenge for our students to earn ClassDojo points in order to participate and to be accountable for their behavior.

May 3rd: Bowie Baysox Field Trip for 5th and 6th grade = 50 points

May 30th-31st: Camp Schmidt Field Trip for 5h grade = 75 points

June 2nd: Field Day = 75 points

The students will be earning their ClassDojo points in all of their classes from April 3rd through June 1st.  The students that do not meet the behavior expectations will not be able to participate, and they will stay with another teacher's class on the day of the event(s).  Thank you for your continued support as we make our way to the end of a great school year!
