From the Office
I am out of the office this week, as a member of a visiting team for another schools WRISA (Wisconsin Religious and Independent Schools Accreditation) Accreditation process. IHM is in the site-visit year of the 7-year WRISA accreditation cycle. The teachers and I have been meeting and will continue through this year, assessing our school and ourselves, for a visiting team to evaluate when they visit in February. After the self-study and site visit, IHM will be given recommendations for goals and we will write our long-range plan for the next 7 years that are based on the visiting team’s recommendations. Pray for us as we take on this extra work and self-examination this year.
October is going so fast, and that means that Halloween and All-Saints Day are coming up in a few weeks. Friday, October 29th will be a No Uniform Day. Students can wear halloween shirts, colors, or their favorite color. No Halloween costumes at school, please. Classrooms will be doing other fun activities through the day. We will also be encouraging students to dress up as Saints on Monday, November 1st, All Saints Day. There are some easy Saint costume ideas are linked below.
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. On behalf of Fr. Chad, the teachers and staff of Immaculate Heart of Mary School, God bless you for choosing Immaculate Heart of Mary School!
