Catholic Schools Week 2019

Dear Parishioners,

This week IHM School community celebrated its Annual Catholic Schools Week! It is a time of the year where gratitude for the many sacrifices parents, stakeholders, and parishioners make to keep Catholic education a reality are uplifted to God in Masses, classroom prayer, appreciation activities, and during faculty and staff lunches.

On Monday, there was STUDENT APPRECIATION DAY! Gifted from the Parents Assistance Group was an all school event at the CINEMARK….watching Mary Poppins. Our Cuyahoga Falls Police assisted in “crossing the street” and students went with the their “buddies”, young with the older!

Tuesday was TEACHER APPRECIATION DAY and a special lunch was provided by the PAG. Later in the day there was a special event for Grandparents! Beautiful!

Wednesday students could wear the famous IHM SPIRIT WEAR.

On Thursday, the students, faculty, staff, and grandparents celebrated PARENT APPRECIATION DAY. All parents were recognized by their child(ren) with acknowledgements of their gratitude to be able to attend IHM School. Gratitude is the best attitude!

Friday, at the all school Mass, there was a joyous celebration with lovely singing and the giving out the IHM MUSTANG AWARDS!

This weekend, on Sunday, February 10th, concludes the CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK with the 10:00am liturgy followed by an ALL ARE WELCOME OPEN HOUSE THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL BUILDING.

I thank God for the IHM elementary school that has such good students, parents, faculty, and staff. This year’s theme: GROW WITH GOD and we are doing it!!!

Many blessings,
Father Jim
