Eagle Express 2/12/2021

From the Office

Dear Parents,

We hope that all of the students had fun celebrating our amazing school during Catholic Schools Week last week! Thanks to all of the parents that chipped in with food, donations, bingo prizes, and watched the various videos! If you didn’t see it yet, here is the link to the Teachers Talent Show skit (the promise at the end was granted at the end of last week!): https://vimeo.com/508135238/834679056e .
We wanted to let parents know that they haven’t missed anything, re-enrollment forms are not yet available. It might be a month or two yet – sorry for the delay. Hang tight, keep reading your Eagle Express and we will provide the link when it is ready!
A menu change for next week Wednesday! The hot lunch on Wednesday the 17th will be Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and chips!
Tyrol Basin was able to reschedule our Middle School Field Trip for Friday, Feb. 19th! We do need new field trip forms, unfortunately, but only the IHM form. The Tyrol Online forms should still be good. Please sign them, send them back, and pray for good weather on the 19th.
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.
God Bless,
Callie Meiller, Principal

    -Use the drop down menu to make sure the box below the words Transactions says “All”.
    -Click the box “View Payment Summary”. The screen will give you a total of what you paid in each category.
    -If you need more help, please email Bernie Heit at bheit@ihmparish.org

  • Current ECE and K-7 families will be charged a non-refundable re-enrollment fee of $75 per family on the February 25th FACTs account, unless we have heard from you that your plans have changed for next year.
  • February is Heart Heath awareness month and with that we are kicking off our 2nd Annual Kids Heart Challenge! If we have 50% of our families register online our school will earn $150! Go to : http://www2.heart.org/goto/IHOM

    If you have any questions about the kids Heart Challenge contact Mrs. Snider at jsnider@ihm-school.org.

  • If a student has been exposed to a positive COVID case, IHM requires 10 days of quarantine from school or proof of a negative COVID test taken the 7th day after exposure, as long as the student is totally symptom-free. We will also support families who choose to keep their children home for the full 14 day quarantine, which the CDC recommends is still the safest course of action.
  • If your child is home because they are sick, we encourage them to rest and recover. Teachers ask that they not log into their classes if they do not have the materials. Thank you for keeping sick kids home to recover!
    If your child will be home for more than a few days, you can request virtual learning materials. Teachers need at least 2 school days to prepare materials. Please contact the teacher directly if you need materials.
  • Use this site to order IHM Spirit Wear: https://ihm.socceretcdirect.com/index.php?route=common/home Click on “School Delivery” under Delivery Method, orders will be delivered to IHM, and we will send them home with your child as soon as we receive them! Quick Tip: If you add your name to the bottom of the order, where it says “Name if applicable,” it will add your child’s name to the piece of clothing.

Thank You!

Thanks to all who donated food to our very successful food drive for Second Harvest! The 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade all won pizza parties on this Friday, Feb. 12th for their classrooms for collecting so much food!
