Nandita Vegesna, 11th Grade Within a few short months, 2017 has already become a year of politics. So when the junior class was presented with an assignment that allowed them to send a meaningful message to our new congressmen and the president about issues they are passionate about, our students did not shy away.

This month’s ‘Monthly Moves with Masha’ video is extra special… Masha teaches Imagine MYP and DP students how to dance to Michael Jackson’s famously spooky Thriller. And that’s not even the best part: it also features some (hilarious) clips of Imagine’s favorite MYP and DP teachers! Mr. Gaskins, Mr. Dluhy, Mrs. Dodds and more… who’s got…
Last Wednesday marked a very special Family Day for Imagine students. Not only was it the 1st Family Day of the school year, but it was also a celebration of Imagine’s 5th birthday! Students celebrated by pulling out posters, markers and even glitter. The hundreds of posters then decorated the front of Imagine’s campus– it was quite a sight and a perfect way to ring in Imagine’s 5th year as a school.
He’s a rather unconventional hero, in many ways a true backbone to all he supports: September’s Athlete Spotlight of The Month is varsity football’s Edward G. Gathuru.
It’s no secret that IB students are incredibly busy. It’s also no secret that breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day! With this easy breakfast sandwich recipe, students won’t have to pick between getting to school on time and eating a nutritious meal that will energize them for the busy day ahead. Enjoy!
Mrs. Williams is a favorite teacher amongst the DP class and known for her interesting classes, funny anecdotes, and love of Hello Kitty. As one of her students, I appreciate the effort Mrs. Williams invests in making our discussions engaging, our assignments purposeful, and our studies meaningful. This year alone, we have studied seven different works of literature in wide-ranging genres with her, from Hamlet to I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings to The Importance of Being Earnest. I can truthfully say that Mrs. Williams has made the investigation of each one of these works exciting and enjoyable. I am very thankful for the preparation she has given my class for our IB exams and our future in college.
This year, Mrs. Williams has been named school-wide Teacher of the Year at Imagine. This title is quite the honor, and I thought it would only be fit to sit down with Mrs. Williams and ask her about her own perspective as a teacher.
There’s always something new going on at our school, whether it’s a service project, a chess tournament, or anything else. But recently, we have been particularly busy: it’s 10th Grade Personal Project time. The 10th graders have been knee-deep in work, and the rest of us? Well, we’ve all been knee-deep in the amazing products…
Have you ever wanted to make crepes, the delectable french cuisine you’ve heard so much about, but avoided actually trying it because you thought it might be too difficult? Well, this simple recipe tutorial (which requires almost nothing more than basic pancake supplies) can help make your cooking dreams a reality, and better yet, avoid some of the unhealthy aspects of traditional crepes, without costing tastiness!
For those of you who don’t know, Mr. Lesko is the DP SL and HL math teacher here at Imagine, and this is his first year here. He’s a really interesting person who always has some crazy and hilarious story to share about any topic. And he’s an amazing math teacher as well- he’s patient, understanding, and always has a way to explain abstruse topics in a clear, simple way. He’s already changed so many students’ outlook on math, and he’s changed mine as well. Thank you, Mr. Lesko, for coming to Imagine!
