Eagle Express 4/17/19

From the Principal

Dear Parents,

I hope you got to come to the Science Fair last week! There were so many interesting displays and exhibits and so much to learn! Lots of thanks to our parents for coming to the fair, and to Mr. Schnell, Sr. Sue, and Mrs. Esser for organizing the fair!

This week is Holy Week in the Catholic Church calendar. There is no school for anyone on Good Friday, April 19th. ECE and K-8 have no school on Monday, April 22nd (4K will be in session), and grades K-8 don’t have school on Tuesday, April 23rd for the reason stated in the next paragraph. May you have and your family have a blessed holy week and Easter, and time to be together!

Next week is the National Catholic Education Association convention in Chicago! Most IHM teachers are attending on Tuesday, April 23rd, so there is no school for grades K-8 that day. Mrs. Meiller, Mrs. Derks, and Mrs. Binzak will stay in Chicago for the rest of the week. They will back to school on Friday, April 26th. Mrs. Meiller will be in contact with the office all week to keep up with what is happening in Monona while they are away. She will also be checking her email this week. I’m sure we will be meeting many new people and gathering many new ideas for our school!

In your child’s green Eagle Express folder, there is a permission slip for the 4K-AM, and K-8th grades for a bowling field trip! We are trying something new, and offering a field trip as a reward for earning Eagle Way tickets (IHM’s in-house reward system). 4K-PM will get to bowl with Mrs. Snider in the gym. Please be aware that if your child’s class (grades 4K-5) or your individual child (grades 6 & 7) does not earn enough tickets, that they won’t get this reward (you won’t need to pay for their trip if they do not go). Thanks in advance for your support!

Enrollment for the IHM Summer Camp Program is only open for a few more weeks – click this link to enroll: IHM Summer Camp. If you need more information, there is a lot on the enrollment link, or please feel free to call or email the school office. This program does fill, and enrollment is first-come, first serve so please enroll soon.

Spring Concert

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

HSA News

Thanks to everybody for their hard work in making the 2019 Fish Fry season a success!

We will be having an HSA Fall Fundraiser brainstorming session on April 30 at 8:00 in Marian Hall. Our main focus will be on whether or not to keep Trivia Night, ways to improve Trivia Night, or with what to replace it. If you’d like to share your thoughts or ideas, please join us!

The term of our HSA Secretary, Christina Englehart, is soon coming to an end. If you’d be interested in this role, let us know. It’s a great way to help even if you have no prior knowledge of the Home and School Association.

The Spring General HSA Meeting, which one parent from each family is asked to attend, will be held on Wednesday, May 15 at 7:00 PM in Marian Hall. We’re looking forward to seeing you!
