Eagle Express 10/23/19

From the Principal

Dear Parents,

Thank you to all who came out to our first fabulous Friday Fish Fry, to eat or to volunteer! The next Fish Fry is Friday, November 15th.

The Fall Family Dance is this Friday from 6-9pm in the IHM gym! Spread the word – invite your friends and family. Cost: $5/person, max $20/family, under 4 years old no charge.Food (pizza, brats, hot dogs) and beverage will be available for purchase. Come in costume and enjoy the family fun!

Middle School families will get an email with a description of the electives for Trimester 2tomorrow, and the sign-up form in their Eagle Express green folder today. Please make sure to look it over, talk to your students about it, rank your class choices, and return it to the school office by Wednesday, Oct. 30th.

The IHM Prairie Fire Theater production of “Peter Pan” is coming up soon! I encourage all 2nd-8th grade students to be involved in Prairie Fire Theater, it is a great, FREE opportunity to be in a play. It’s worth is to miss a week of sports or other commitments to have fun, bond, and perform with their school mates!

Conference sign-ups will be in the Eagle Express next week. Parent-Teacher conferences this year will be on Tuesday, Nov.  26th (with an added date of Monday, Nov. 25th for 4K-PM class).

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
