From the Office

Dear Parents,

Happy Mother’s Day this Sunday to all of our special moms, grandmas, aunts, and mother-figures! God bless you!
We are solidifying our end of year plans regarding graduation, supply pick up, and other things during the last weeks of school. The following are known as of today:
8th Grade: The last day of distance learning for our 8th grade will be Tuesday, May 26th. We are working on a plan for an adapted 8th Grade clap out – please stay tuned! We have a few ideas in place for graduation, depending on what happens to the SafeAtHome orders at the end of May, we will let you know as we get closer. Please be prepared to be flexible!
All other Grades: The last day of distance learning for all other students will be Friday, May 29th.
Jun 1-5 will be “Mrs. Meiller’s End of Year Extravaganza,”a week of daily themes and fun, optional activities to wrap up this amazing but unusual school year, as well as a time for students to make up missing work.
June 8-11 We will schedule pick up times for families to collect materials from school (based on the Badger Bounce Back guidelines) and turn-in times for technology, library and other school materials. Schedules and information for pick-up will come out at a later date, please be flexible, we will need to follow state guidelines and those may change at the last minute! Teachers will use this week to work on report cards, which will be different for this last trimester. Report cards will be ready on June 11.
Our ECE Program will be open on May 11-13, and 18-20. If you did not fill out the form for care for those days, but forsee the need, please use this link to sign up: ECE May Days. There will be no drop-ins those days, please fill out the form if you intend to use the program.
If you would like to send me a video for Teacher Appreciation Week, please email them to me at cmeiller@ihm-school.org by tomorrow, Thursday May 7th!

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.



Callie Meiller, Principal
