From the Office
In his message about Lent this year, Pope Francis said “Lent is a favourable time for personal and community renewal, as it leads us to the paschal mystery of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. For our Lenten journey in 2022, we will do well to reflect on Saint Paul’s exhortation to the Galatians: “Let us not grow tired of doing good, for in due time we shall reap our harvest, if we do not give up. So then, while we have the opportunity, let us do good to all” (Gal 6:9-10).” May this Lent be an opportunity for us all to do good in our communities, family, and world!
Speaking of that, IHM will be having a fundraiser for Ukraine! For the past several years the students at IHM have not had dress down days during Lent. We had planned on continuing that tradition, but in the spirit of giving, we would like to provide an opportunity to let kids dress down during Lent this year.
For four Thursdays during Lent IHM students can pay to dress down for $2 each day. The money raised will go to the Catholic Relief Fund for Ukraine.
Dates: March 17, March 24, April 7, April 14
Cost: $2 each day the kids choose to dress down
Student should bring money to their homeroom teachers, in an envelope marked with their name and the dates being paid for. If you would like to sponsor another child or give an additional donation please let your child’s teacher know! Thanks for participating in this great cause!
Welcome back to 1st grade teacher Amanda Hanson from her maternity leave! The 1st graders are all excited to have Mrs. Hanson back in the classroom, for mornings onlyy until after Spring Break. Ms. Greta Kelly will continue to teach the 1st grade in the afternoons until then.
Sr. Sue and the Student Council are asking for donations of small, individually wrapped candies to fill Easter Eggs for the Easter Egg Hunt that the Student Council will be running for students on April 22nd. Please have your students drop the candy off with Sr. Sue!
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.
