From the Office
Welcome back to our students from their Thanksgiving break! We hope all of our families had some time to connect with their families this last week. Thanks to everyone who came to their parent/teacher conference. We really appreciate the chance to check with all of you about this blessed partnership we have with you, educating your children!
Advent is here, and the students in grades ECE, and K-8 will be participating in weekly Advent prayer services on Wednesday mornings. As Pope Francis reminds us, “Advent is a continuous call to hope.” May you and your family feel the hope of the Advent season!

We are gearing up for our annual Benefit Dinner & Dance on Friday 1/13 and we need your help to make it a success! We are looking for donations of high-quality bottles of wine and liquor for our Wine Pull Fundraiser that will take place that evening, a total of about 100. We are also in need of high-quality silent and live auction donated items. For example: themed baskets, gift cards, date night ideas, group outings, vacation destinations, etc. The auctions not only make the night fun, but drive in the most funds! Please bring to the Parish Office by 12/23 or contact Rachel with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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!
Peace & Blessings,
Callie Meiller, Principal
