From the Principal

Dear Parents,

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.

Veteran’s Day is Monday, November 11th, and IHM will be having a Veteran’s Day Prayer Service at 8:30 AM in Marian Hall. We would like to extend a special invitation to the members of our community who are Veterans or current members of the service to join us for this moving service. All IHM students are invited to wear Red, White, and Blue on Monday in honor of Veteran’s Day instead of their uniforms!

Prairie Fire Theater rehearsals are in full swing! Even if your child isn’t involved, come to see a performance on Friday or Saturday. You will be amazed by what the students can do in only a week of preparation!

One more week to sign up for conferences! 4K parents only need a conference with Ms. Conner (NOT with Mrs. Wellnitz too, if they attend wraparound). I have left in the sign up links below for one more newsletter, in case you still need them.  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 this Friday, November 8th. Families not signed up by that day will be assigned a time, which might not be convenient for your family.

ECE (Mrs. Esser’s Class): Tuesday, 11/26 from 12-8 PM

Thank You

Many thanks to our neighbors, the Sisters of Mary Morning Star, for leading our students in Adoration at their convent most Wednesday mornings through the school year (the K-8 attends on a rotating schedule.) We appreciate their time in leading the students in adoration prayer!

IHM Eagles Athletics

Please send cleaned volleyball uniforms into the school office or gym by next week Monday, November 11th. Thank you!

Did You Know?

You don’t have to send cash with your kid’s to the Scholastic Book Fair if you set up an eWallet! Starting this week, you can go to the IHM Fair website here Book Fair and add funds to an electronic wallet. Only the funds that you approve will be able to be used, you can set amounts for each sibling, and you don’t have to send cash to school with your kids. I used it for my kid’s in the Spring fair, and it worked great! Try it out!
