There will be a kick-off Mass at 10:15 on the 29th.  Please consider attending this mass and open house to be a visible “Thank You” to the parish that supports our school, students can wear their uniforms!

After Feb. 8th, enrollment will be on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you your student has a sibling that you want to come to IHM, please make sure to fill out an application for them by that date to ensure they will have a spot in the class!
