From the Office

Dear Parents,

Mr. Schnell and I will be in Washington D.C. with our 8th graders who are attending all next week, so will I not be in the office. I will be available on a limited basis by email. I can’t wait to tell you all about the trip, and to get our middle school excited for future trips!

This is your golden opportunity to tell us how you want to be involved at IHM next school year! Please complete this simple survey TODAY! Only three people have responded so far, please click and read the survey. Even if there are no ways that work for you, you can let us know in the survey and that is helpful information for us! PLEASE CLICK: https://forms.gle/Xssfmf3Zgfats62v9

This is the last week to sign up for our Summer Programs! The deadline is this Friday, April 28th. There is a lot of information on the sign-up forms, links below. Of course let us know if you have any questions!

Did You Know? 

 May 1st is the feast of St. Joseph the worker! While not the primary celebration of St. Joseph (that is March 19th), this feast allows us to celebrate St. Joseph in a way that we can all relate to him —as workers! Joseph is the patron saint of many things, including the universal Church, fathers, the dying, social justice, unborn children, travelers, immigrants, a happy death, families, pregnant women, travelers, house sellers and buyers, craftsmen, engineers, and working people in general!
