From the Principal

Dear Parents,

The IHM Benefit (formerly the Winter Gala)  is coming! Mark your calendar for Friday, Feb. 14th. This is the Parish & Schools biggest fundraiser of the year, and it is a ton of FUN!

“Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed” is the theme of this year’s Catholic School Week, starting on January 26th. A schedule of all the week’s special activities is linked below – make sure to look at it carefully, there are special things happening every day. There will be a kick-off Mass at 10:15 on the 26th, followed by a  Family Fun Day & Open House at school, as well as information sessions about our many programs!  Please consider attending this mass and open house to be a visible “Thank You” to the parish that supports our school.

Our re-enrollment for the 20-21 school year will be changing from the way we have done it in the past, to take into account  switching over to FACTs for many of our processes. If you have a child in ECE, or K-7, IHM will assess a non-refundable re-enrollment fee of $75 on the February 25th FACTs account, unless we hear from you that your plans have changed for next year. There is more detailed information for those grades, as well as for 4K, in the letter linked below. Please let us know if you have any questions!

Catholic Schools provide a firm foundation for the growth and development of your child.  Pray for a year filled with faith and learning. Let us be a community of service to one another and to our world.

Callie Meiller, Principal

Office Reminders

  • Oops! We meant to send home the Early Childhood Flow-Chart last week, but accidently sent the ECE Info Flyer instead! See the flow chart linked below (in English & Spanish), and please share it with anyone you know who may be trying to figure out which of our early childhood programs works best for their family!
  • It is cold and flu season – yuck. If your child has a fever or is vomiting, please keep them home while they have those symptoms and for 24 hours after the symptoms have stopped without medication. Thank you!
  • Mrs. Winter is looking for weekly help during the day to help with shelving books in the IHM School Library! Please email her at secretary@ihm-school.orgif you can help!

Thank You

Thank You to Ms. Erin Catalani, our band director, and to all of the talented members of our school band. They sounded great at the school concert last week!
