This event was a huge hit last year and we are hoping to be able to do it again this year. Families can try out dozens of new games, eat pizza and snacks, and each family gets to take their favorite game home at the end of the night.

EXAM BREAKFASTS (Winter and Spring)

Another wonderful tradition at AIM occurs during midterm and final exam weeks. Breakfast is served to the Middle School and Upper School students before they take their exams. Volunteers are needed to donate, collect and serve food during these breakfasts.


In the past, Grandfriends Day has been a special afternoon or morning where Lower School and Middle School grandparents or special friends come and enjoy that time with their AIM student, touring the different classrooms and learning about what happens during a school day.


The APC hosts a book fair to celebrate reading. Volunteers are needed to set up and break down the book fair, assist children with book selections during the day, replenish items on the shelves, and to operate cash registers.


Teacher and staff appreciation activities are planned for our devoted AIM teachers and staff throughout the school year including a spring luncheon. This volunteer committee coordinates collection of food, decorations, and favors for the teachers. Organizers help set up and clean up as needed.


This lovely evening organized by the Development Office and a large group of volunteers is the largest fundraiser of the year. Volunteers are need for a range of tasks including selling sponsorships, acquiring auction items, decorating, logistics, registration, menu planning and more.


A parent coordinator keeps the families in their grade informed, reaches out to new families in their grade, solicit volunteers for AIM Parent Committee (APC) events, coordinate grade-specific gatherings, support teachers, etc... They will reach out to parents and disseminate any information from the APC.
