Eagle Express 9/4/19

From the Principal

Dear Parents,
We are officially up and running!  Welcome to all families, continuing and new! We are excited for a great year of learning, faith, and fun!

Each week on Wednesday, important communication from the office will come home via the Eagle Express email. Make sure to check for links at the bottom of the email! Forms that need to be returned, and flyers not available electronically will be sent home in a green Eagle Express folder in your child’s backpack PLEASE SIGN & SEND THE GREEN FOLDER BACK  TO YOUR CHILD’S CLASSROOM ON THURSDAY.IHM communicates primarily through email, so please make you have access to email, and be sure to check your email at least weekly or you will miss information that you will need. If you would like the Eagle Express  sent to an additional email address, please email Mrs. Winter at secretary@ihm-school.org and she will add it to the address book. If you would like something sent in the Eagle Express, please follow the submission guidelines linked below.

I would like to suggest that you take the time right now to make a separate folder in your email program for the Eagle Express emails, and save them as soon as they come, so they will be available when you need to look at them.

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.

On behalf of Fr. Chad, the teachers and staff of Immaculate Heart of Mary School, God bless you for choosing Immaculate Heart of Mary School!
Callie Meiller, Principal

Office Reminders

  • Kayaking forms are due back to the office by Friday,  September 6th!
  • Please  follow the guidelines for dropping off and picking up students from our back playground. We have a lot of new families, so these first few weeks the line may be a little slow – please be patient! Please do not pull in front of another car in the line, and if you are going to take more than a minute unloading, or if you have to come into the school for any reason, please park in the parent parking lot behind and between the gym and the church. Student safety is our top priority!
  • At 3:15 all students should be picked-up, walking/biking home, or going to Homework Club or Afterschool. There are no staff members available to supervise children outside of those programs. We understand that parents may occasionally run late – if that is the case please call the school office to let us know. All students still at school after 3:15 will be sent to Homework Club or Afterschool with no parent phone call, parents should pick up from that program, and they will be charged the amount due for the program. If you need to discuss the cost of the program or your situation, please feel free to contact the office.
  • Picture Day is Wednesday, September 18th. Please send a picture packet form with your child that day (or before) even if you don’t want to order a picture packet. Uniforms are NOT required on picture day.
  • Remember, the FACTS withdrawal date for tuition and fees is the 20th or 25th of the month, depending on what you day you chose. All incidental fees (including 4K Wraparound, ECE charges, lunches, field trips, etc.) are withdrawn on the 25th of the month. If you have any questions about FACTS, please call their toll-free number 1-866-441-4637.

Thank You

Thank you to all of the families who have decided to send their kids to Immaculate Heart of Mary School! We know we will have a fantastic school year!
