From the Principal

Dear Parents,

Welcome to our new (and old!) 2nd grade student, Eleanor Munz, and her parents Kevin and Larissa! Eleanor is returning to the class after some time away. We are thrilled to have her and her family back!

Due to the school cancellations, the Monona Grove School District has added one day for the 4K program – April 22nd – 4K will have school that day. There will be NO WRAPAROUND available on that day. We understand you may have out of town plans already for the long Easter weekend, just let us know as usual that your child will not be here if that is the case!

Spring might feel like it’s a long way off, but Spring conferences are coming
up! Information below (and much more in the letter in your child’s green folder!):
ECE, K-2: Conferences are by teacher request. Please see the letter in your child’s green folder.

4K: Parent/Teacher conferences, please sign up here: 4K Conference Sign Up

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

The IHM Benefit is this Friday! This is the Parish & Schools biggest fundraiser of the year! Bidding is open for the silent auction at biddingforgood.com/ihmbenefit. Proceeds benefit IHM School and all are invited to bid whether or not they attend this Friday’s event. We look forward to your continued support!

All IHM parents are invited to the diocesan-wide presentation “How to Help Your Child Deal With Stress & Anxiety” that is being held at IHM next Wednesday, Feb. 27th at 6:30 pm. See the linked flyer for more information!

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
