We will host a UIL informational meeting Monday, November 16 @ 6:30 pm via Zoom. In this informational session we will go over different events, how virtual exams work, and coaching information.

What is UIL?

A+ Academics Elementary are academic competitions to let your students compete and challenge themselves in different events. This year will look a little different from previous years. Our first 2 meets will be held virtually with the intention to return to in person meets for the spring semester.

What UIL events can your students do?

The full list and description of this year’s events are on the MIMS PTO UIL page.

Some of the events have changed by condensing the grades and this year we will be able to send 5 students per event. We have wonderful parents that volunteer their time to coach our students. If you are skilled in one of the event categories and would like to be a volunteer coach, please email uil-es@mimspto.org.
