Eagle Express 6/8/22



Eagle Express Newsletter

June 8, 2022



From the Office

 Dear Parents,

 As we are wrapping up this busy school year with this last Eagle Express of the year, I just wanted to pause to reflect on this wonderful school year. This was kind of a crazy year, but I am proud of how we ALL did our best – teachers, staff, families, and students! We are indeed blessed to have such a close-knit community of parents, teachers, staff, and especially the precious children we all care about so much. Thank you to each one of your for your kindness, your caring, and your dedication.  

Although this week has been all dress-down days, tomorrow, Thursday June 9, will be a dress for Jesus day or uniform day, no jeans please. Remember, tomorrow is an early dismissal day at 11:00 AM for all levels! There is no care after 11:00 AM tomorrow.

 Congratulations to our 8th graders! We wish them all well in high school, and hope they come back to see us. IHM will always be their home! It’s heartwarming to see how close they’ve grown and we are excited to see what they will accomplish as IHM Alumni! You can watch this year’s graduation slideshow here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1wEcegALmBxtyybkAz39qtNn0E0JTmYAf/view?usp=sharing.

 Report Cards will be available on FACTs next Monday, June 13th! I will also email them to all families.

The DPI is offering one-day substitute teacher training this summer. If any parents are interested in substitute teaching at IHM next year, this is a great resource! The additional licensing fees are not required, and IHM does not require them for our parents that sub in the classroom.

 I would like to leave you with a prayer for the summer time:

God of Wisdom,

We thank you for all of the gifts you have given us throughout this school year.

We praise you for giving us life and for choosing us to be your people.

As we come to the end of this school year, we voice our gratitude for the good things you have done in us, and we praise you for all who have shared in the work of this school.
We know this has been a hard year for many of your children, Lord, for many different reasons. We ask you to bless them in your love and give them refreshment and peace. 
We ask you to open our hearts to those who need our love, and our hands to those who need our service.

We praise you God, through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns forever and ever.
Have a safe and fun summer!
God Bless,
Callie Meiller, Principal
