From the Office
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!
The 4th grade will be holding a stocking raffle next week, December 13-17. All IHM students can buy raffle tickets for stockings that will be displayed outside of the office Tickets cost $1 apiece or 6 for $5. Winners will be picked before noon on December 20th. Proceeds will be going to St. Vincent de Paul. See the flyer linked below for more information, and thank you for your support!
Please note that Monday, December 20th will be a Dress-Up day, as that is the day that we will be recording our Christmas Concert. Dress clothes (Sunday best) or uniforms will be required – no jeans or hoodies or other casual attire, please. The video will be shared with parents after it is edited. Tuesday, December 21st will be a Pajama Day for the whole school!
I wanted to mention that IHM will not be a site for Monona Grove 4K starting next year, not because of anything IHM did or did not do, but because the school district is building a new building and does not need our space. Rest assured that IHM will still run a 3K, a 4K, and a wraparound program for those two classes AND for Monona Grove 4K students that need care in the afternoon.
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!
