Family Day: To Love or not to Love?

Amelia Kimball, 8th Grade What is likely the most vibrant characteristic of Imagine that is hard to find anywhere else, is our K-12 environment. It’s no secret that we don’t have a lot of space to work with, so it takes all the more creativity to fit kids from ages 5 to 18 in comfortably….
