Eagle Express 10/2/19

From the Principal

Dear Parents,

Congratulations to our Phy. Ed. teacher Jenna Snider, her husband Jim and daughter (and Kindergartener) Stella on the arrival of their new baby boy, Dakota James, last Saturday! Mother and baby are doing great! Ms. Kayla Kuechle will be Mrs. Snider’s substitute teacher while she is away on maternity leave.

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

HSA News

HSA event volunteer sign up is available! It opened on Fri. Sept 27 at 6:00 AM and will be available until Fri. Oct 4 at 11:59 PM. K-8 families, make sure to read the letter in last week’s Eagle Express about how many shifts you will be required to work. Shifts will be assigned beginning on October 5, 2019.  There are 19 open shifts remaining for the October 18 fish fry. It would be especially helpful for those shifts to be filled as soon as possible. An information sheet regarding details on childcare availability for volunteers was also attached in last week’s Eagle Express. Any questions should be emailed to ihmhsa@gmail.comnot to the school office.

In today’s Eagle Express, you will find a Scrip ordering information sheet & calendar, a hard-copy order sheet, and a Scrip Program Agreement Form. If you plan to buy Scrip this year (and you should, to save money on your tuition and suppport the IHM HSA!) please fill out the Agreement Form and send it back to the school office. If we don’t have an agreement form for your family, we will not be able to send Scrip home with students.
