Over the past six years, Independence Middle School's iMovement (Pay it Forward) Day has raised more than $10,000, handed out more than 500 gift cards, cleaned up 50 homes, passed out thousands of bottles of water, helped serve lunch to more than 500 seniors, passed out dozens of trays of bakery to our city services, and so much more. Most importantly, our students and staff have created a wonderful place for people to live and work and a place that people are proud to call home...a place where people know their neighbors will take care of them. #IPRIDE at its finest.

On Friday, May 26, our sixth grade students...
