A Letter To Prospective Parents

Dear Prospective Member of the IHM Community,

     Welcome to our school! We provide a safe and nurturing learning environment that is rooted in the traditions of the Catholic Church. We are committed to the education of the total child, but recognize you, the parent or guardian, as the primary educator. We pledge to work with you to help your child grow into a moral and responsible human being who has the tools to be successful in high school and the world beyond.

Our physical plant is both beautiful and well maintained. It includes a computer lab, computers in each classroom, and 25 wireless laptops. We have 5 computer projectors, three smart boards and a closed circuit security system. Our science lab was recently updated and each classroom has its own science, health and safety manipulative center. We have a large library, a gym/auditorium and a cushioned outdoor play/seating area.

This is the 96th year that IHM School has been educating children in Kensington, Windsor Terrace and beyond. In 2007 we formed a cluster-wide School Advisory Board to help us envision and meet the ever changing challenges of the 21st Century. In 2009 we formed an independent Advisory Board to specifically focus on the needs of IHM as we move towards an Academy governance structure.

Parental involvement is essential. Our marketing committee is currently engaged in totally revamping our website. The Home School Association plans a variety of fun filled activities for the children as well as providing essential fund raising activities. Our in-school volunteers support both the classrooms and the administrative functioning of the school.

I hope that you will come and visit to see for yourself the wonderful opportunity that awaits your child. IHM Lights the Way in outstanding Catholic education!

Most sincerely,

Maureen E. Rooney, Principal
