From the Office

Dear Parents,

The IHM Benefit Dinner & Dance was a great night celebrating IHM School & Parish, (and raising a lot of money for both, as well)! Thanks for all who came out to eat, bid, and dance the night away at the IHM Benefit last Friday! I’ll let you know what the grand total raised was as soon as it’s tabulated.

Spring might feel like it’s a long way off, but Spring conferences are coming
up on Thursday, March 12th! Information below (and much more in the letter in your child’s green folder!)

ECE (Mrs. Esser & Mrs. Wellnitz’ classes), K & 2: Conferences are by teacher request. Please see the letter in your child’s green folder.  1st: Mrs. Hanson will send the letter next week, when she is back from sick leave.

4K: Parent/Teacher conferences, please sign up here – Ms. Conner’s class only: 4K Conference Sign Up

Grades 3-8: Student-Led Conferences, please sign up at the links below:

3rd Grade: 3rd Student-Led Conference Sign Up

4th Grade: 4th Student-Led Conference Sign Up

5th Grade: 5th Student-Led Conference Sign Up

6,7,8th Grades: Middle School Student-Led Conference Sign Up

Please sign up for a conference by Tuesday, March 3rd. Families not signed up by that day will be assigned a time, which might not be ideal for your family. If you cannot make that day, please email your child’s teacher to set up a different day or time!

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.
