Middle School Parent Group Logo


We are a group run by parents with the approval and support of the Ishpeming Schools. Our main objective is to provide the middle school students with fun (and sometimes educational) activities outside of school hours to help raise money and defray the costs of the 8th grade field trip to Washington D.C. 


Our fundraising will supply much of our income for the school year.  From this income, we plan our activities for the school year.  We encourage all parents to participate so we can continue supporting our students and staff.

 Volunteer Opportunities

There are various volunteering opportunities each school year.  From chaperoning a dance to joining the IMS Parent Group Board, we need your help!!!


Some of the activities we are planning are the 5th & 6th Grade Dances, the 7th & 8th Grade Dances, Movie Night, Middle School Picnic, Glow Bowling, Dodge Ball Tournament, and the Middle School Science Fair.

Monthly Meetings

All parents are encouraged to attend our meetings, even just one.  Meetings are scheduled on the second Monday of the month in the IHS/IMS Commons at 6:30 p.m.  Our tentative meeting dates for 2018-2019 are:
