From the Principal

Dear Parents,

Thank you to all who attended our kick-off Mass and Family Fun Day & Open House at the school. We had a great time, and really showed off the school to many new families. We hope you had fun!

We would like to welcome a few new faces to the IHM Staff! Mrs. Sheila Beilman and Ms. Maria Hammer will be helping out with afternoon Wraparound and ECE. Say “Hi” if you see them in the hall!

Catholic Schools Week continues through Friday, and winds up with our Fabulous Friday Fish Fry! If you aren’t volunteering, come by to enjoy some of the best fish in town! Rumor has it, Bishop Hying will be in attendance!

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

  • The IHM federal tax ID number is 39-0828125.
  • Current ECE and K-7 families will be charged a non-refundable re-enrollment fee of $75 per family on the February 25th FACTs account, unless we hear from you that your plans have changed for next year.
  • Parents please DO NOT drop off your children at the front door to enter the building in the morning. The back doors are open until 8:30. Only bus students should enter the building in the morning through the front door. Thank you for helping to keep the sanity of the office staff intact!
  • Do you have any old towels (any size) that you could donate to the IHM Kitchen? We go through a lot of towels during Fish Fry season! Mrs. Walters welcomes any donations!
  • 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!

Thank You
