From the Office

Dear Parents,

Thank you to all who attended our kick-off Mass and Open House this weekend. We had a great time, and really presented our awesome school to many new families. We hope you had fun! Catholic Schools Week continues through this Friday with Dress-Up for Jesus Day on Thursday, and Class Theme Day on Friday!

Two things to do before next Wednesday, Feb. 8th:

  • If you do not plan on your students attending IHM in the Fall, let the office know by next Wednesday, Feb. 8th, to avoid being assessed the $75 non-refundable re-enrollment fee. Fill out the form here: https://forms.gle/yFBDGc9ivEnQz9YD9
  • For siblings that have not attended IHM, and other new students: Priority Application for current IHM families and IHM parishioners for the 23-24 school year ends Wednesday, Feb. 8th . After that, application is open to the public. Apply for the 23-24 school year by logging into your FACTs family portal and clicking the Apply/Enroll link on the menu. Current students at any level do NOT NEED AN APPLICATION! Each application costs IHM money, and current/past students don’t need them!

If you need to find out how much you paid in tuition or child care last year for tax purposes, please follow these steps:

1) Log into your FACTs tuition account
2) Click the “View Details” link just to the right of “Payment Plan & Billing”.
3) Use the drop down menu to make sure the box below the words Transactions says “All”.
4) Click the box “View Payment Summary”. The screen will give you a total of what you paid in each category. 
5) If you need more help, please email Bernie Heit at bheit@ihmparish.org

Wednesday Faith Formation Night is a Potluck Dinner tonight Wed 2/1 in Marian Hall  We will provide Chili Baked Potato bar. We are in need of cooked broccoli, bacon bits, sour cream, cheddar cheese, salads and desserts! Please sign up at https://ihmparishmonona.flocknote.com/signup/107376 to bring an item to share. Dinner will be served by volunteers from our Go Make Disciples group.

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.

Peace & Blessings,

Callie Meiller, Principa

HSA News

This is a reminder that each IHM K-8th grade family is responsible for $225 in Home & School Association fees this year.  This fee will be charged to your FACTS account at the end of the year (in June), and keeps IHM a “no-sell fundraising” school.  The HSA fee can be reduced or eliminated by earning rebates with RaiseRight.  For example, if you earn $100 in rebates, then you will only be charged a $125 fee. After you have earned $225 in RaiseRight rebates, then you can begin to earn tuition credit.  

If you are new to RaiseRight, you can enroll at www.raiseright.com today and enter the IHM code  22AEBL1F7477.

If you order physical cards online, they can be sent home on Thursdays, with your permission.  We also sell in person every other weekend after mass.

Email your RaiseRight coordinators, Mary Keveany & Talitha Cushman, at scripihm@gmail.com if you have any questions.

For a limited time, Kwik Trip is offering a 9% rebate through Raise Right when you purchase Kwik Trip gift cards!
