 From the Office

 Dear Parents,

Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of the season of Lent and our ECE and K-8 students attended Holy Mass today. The ECE and K-8 students will be attending the Stations of the Cross on several Fridays during Lent, as well.

Report Cards for Grades ECE and K-8 are available today! ECE will have paper reports in your child’s backpack. Grades K-8, log into your FACTs Family Portal to view the report cards (check after 5:00 pm tonight). Mrs. Meiller will also email a copy to your email address.

Tuition rates have been set for the 22-23 School year, and the sheet with those amounts is linked below. Let us know if you have any questions, as always. Tuition assistance is available for students in grades K-8 whose families qualify. Apply for assistance here: https://online.factsmgt.com/aid . There is a $35 fee to apply for tuition assistance. We encourage you to apply if you feel you need assistance; 20% of our current students are receiving some form of financial aid, and most of families that apply some level of financial aid. Please fill out the form by May 15th, 2022.

Families that use the bus: Please note that masks are required for students while riding the bus. Please make sure that your student has a few masks with them every day.  

SIGN UP FOR ECE SUMMER! If your students are entering ECE, 4K, or Kindergarten in the fall, and if you would like them to attend the ECE Summer Session, sign up here: https://immaculateheartmonona.wufoo.com/forms/q1eibsll0eec2vy/ ! ECE School Year session ends on Thursday, June 9th and ECE Summer Session will go from June 13-August 19, with no classes July 4-8th. If you have any questions, let us know! 

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

Did You Know?

Lent is the 40 weekdays from Ash Wednesday to Easter observed by the Roman Catholic, Eastern, and some Protestant churches as a period of penitence and fasting. Sundays aren’t included in the 40-day count.

Since Sunday’s aren’t included, Lent technically lasts 46 days!
