Eagle Express 10/09/18

From the Principal

Dear Parents,

I would like to take this opportunity, half way through the trimester, to remind parents of Middle School students to check their children’s grades in Teacher Ease. Sign in with your account at Teacher Ease (use the email where you get your Eagle Express), or contact me for help!  Please contact your child’s teacher with any questions or concerns.

Our fabulous Friday Fish Fry is starting next Friday, October 18th! Schedules for the volunteers assigned is linked belowplease make sure to check it! If you aren’t volunteering, come to eat the best fish fry in town with your friends and neighbors!

We would like to extend a very warm welcome  to Harper and Kingston Block and family!  They will be joining our kindergarten, starting tomorrow!  We are happy to have you as part of our IHM Faith community.

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
