From the Principal

Dear Parents,

Thanks to everyone who helped and attended the Fall Family Dance, to set up, dress up, eat up, dance dance dance, and clean up! Hope you had fun!

Our Prairie Fire Theater Production of “Beauty & The Beast” is coming soon. This theater experience will be from November 5th-10th. Please encourage your 2-8th Grade child to be involved, even if they may have to miss a week of dance classes or sports. This is a once a year, very rewarding theatrical experience with their class and school community that your child will not want to miss. Please see the letter and form in the Eagle Express!

It is time to sign up for conferences! Conferences are on Tuesday, November 20th from 12:00-8:00 PM. Please use the links below to sign up for your child’s conferences. Each student should have ONE conference time for all parents. If that won’t work for your family, or you can’t make this day, please contact the teacher to arrange for a different time. There is more information in the letter linked below. Sign up for a conference time by Monday, November 5th. Families not signed up by that day will be assigned a time, which might not be convenient for your family.

Office Reminders

Thank you for your continued patience with our new phone system. We have noticed that the Caller ID does not say IHM when we call cell phones. The number that comes up on Caller ID is 608-720-1280. Our suggestion is to program your cell phone with the main office number 608-222-8831, and then program the number above as an alternate IHM number. If you try to dial (or redial) the 720-1280 number to reach us, it will not go through. These issues are being addressed through Charter, hopefully they will be resolved soon.
PARENTS should call or email the office to excuse their children for absences or appointments. Please do not send messages with siblings – we need to hear from parents! Thank you for your help!
Please make sure to send your child with appropriate outdoor wear for the weather. Make sure to label all outdoor clothing with your child’s name. If you need help getting outdoor gear for your family, please let us know – we have resources!
Students can wear shorts/skirts without tights/leggings/knee socks until Nov. 1st. After that long pants and tights/leggings/knee socks under skirts are required until April 1st.
Thank You
