From the Office
During this month of Thanksgiving, let’s remember to be grateful every day for the blessings that God has given to us. We here at IHM are grateful that you have chosen IHM to be your partners in educating your children and sharing our faith.
A reminder that we will begin a 1:00 PM Early Dismissal on Wednesdays for grades K-8 only, starting next week, November 18th. Information about this went out in an email last Friday, if you did not get the email please check your Spam folder!
Governor Ever’s released another special order in response to the uptick of COVID cases in Wisconsin. In Dane County, Emergency Order #9 stays in effect, and everyone is encouraged to follow the additional recommendations in the state order. This includes:
· Staying home – All individuals should stay home as much as possible and only make trips when necessary, such as to go to work, pick up groceries, or refill prescriptions.
· Avoiding gatherings – Avoid gatherings of any size between individuals who are not members of the same household.
· Limiting travel – Individuals are strongly encouraged to remain close to home and discouraged from engaging in unnecessary travel.
Thank you for following guidelines as much as you can and for communicating with IHM School! We want everyone to be safe and healthy!
Veteran’s Day is today, Wednesday, November 11th, and the IHM 5th Grade have recorded a Virtual Veteran’s Day Prayer Service to share, the link is here: https://vimeo.com/476023341/fa55cd1c5e. We would like to extend a special invitation to the members of our community who are Veterans or current members of the service to view the service!
This is usually the time of year we are planning our Grandparents Day to invite our beloved Grandparents and other special people into the building. We are sad to have to cancel that for this year, but we will be sending out a special message to share with all of the Grandparents and other special people in a few weeks. Keep an eye out for it!
Last change to sign up for your own VIRTUAL Parent/Teacher conference time, links below! Please don’t make us pick a time for you that may not work and will need to be changed! 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. Sign up for a conference time by Friday, November 13th.
