All of our families are invited to attend our kick-off to Catholic School Week Holy Mass & Open House this Sunday, January 29th! Holy Mass is 10:15 AM, and the Open House is 11:30-1:00. Invite your friends who are interested in IHM School! The classrooms are open and there are tours for new parents! It is a great way to learn about the programs, and to get your questions answered. Please share that date if you know of a family that is thinking of IHM!
From Nadine Kerl of Overture Band:
“I wanted to let you know that Malorie Ottosen has resigned her position of band teacher with Overture Band Programs. Her last day of teaching will be Friday, February 3, 2023. The new band instructor at Immaculate Heart of Mary will be Mr. Michael Mills. Michael is a native of Lodi, WI, and currently serves as Director of Sacred Music for IHM. Michael holds the Bachelor of Music in Organ Performance and Master of Music in Church Music degrees from the University of Kansas and has served as music director for churches in Kansas and Wisconsin. Preparing the next generation of musicians has been an important part of Michael’s work through leading children’s choirs, private instruction, and teaching courses in the history of art and music. Prior to his formal training in organ and conducting, Michael studied trumpet for 7 years through Overture Band Programs as a student, and is excited to return as an instructor!
Band and lessons will continue to be held on Mondays as usual. We welcome Michael to our staff at Overture Band Programs, and wish him all the best at IHM.”
