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 their time and donations! Thanks to everyone who shared their talents at the Talent Show! If you would like to order a DVD or emailed file of the recording, please click here: https://forms.gle/bmkaaNHg19YdAEeN6. Order by Thursday, Feb. 23rd.

A friendly reminder to please call or email the school office by 8:15 AM if your child will not be at school that day, unless you informed us of a multi-day absence. We know mornings are busy for families, but we have noticed an epidemic of parents forgetting to call us, which mean we have to call you. By law, we are required to make contact with parents about absences! If you have one phone call or email to make, we have a dozen! Thanks for your help with this!

This is the last afternoon to do these two things if necessary:

  • If you do not plan on your students attending IHM in the Fall, let the office know by next Wednesday, Feb. 8th, to avoid being assessed the $75 per family non-refundable re-enrollment fee. Fill out the form here: https://forms.gle/yFBDGc9ivEnQz9YD9
  • For siblings that have not attended IHM, and other new students: Priority Application for current IHM families and IHM parishioners for the 23-24 school year ends Wednesday, Feb. 8th . After that, application is open to the public. Apply for the 23-24 school year by logging into your FACTs family portal and clicking the Apply/Enroll link on the menu. Current students at any level do NOT NEED AN APPLICATION! Each application costs IHM money, and current/past students don’t need them!

You are invited to Wednesday Faith Formation Night! Tonight is Catechesis Night in Marian Hall at 6pm. Our speaker will be Michael Mills talking about Jesus descends into Hell and Judgment Day.

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!

Peace & Blessings,
Callie Meiller, Principal
