Parental Involvement

Parent Teacher Organization

The IHM P.T.O. is comprised of the parents, teachers and administrators. Its purpose is to be of service to IHM school by:

  • Promoting a cooperative relationship among parents, students, administration and faculty
  • Augmenting the educational resources of the school and assisting in the planning and carrying out of school functions.

When you register your children at IHM, you are a member of the P.T.O. How active a member you are is up to you. As a group, we try to maintain a high level of service and provide the best for our children.

We have various school functions throughout the year in which all parents are encouraged to participate.

Other major activities which we have each year include: a Book Fair during fall conferences, Catholic School Week activities, Teacher Appreciation Day, Campbell soup Label and Box tops collecting and more!

The organization's Governing Board consists of four officers, and two Room Representatives from each classroom. We meet monthly, and as a parent, you are invited and encouraged to become an active member.

School Committee

The IHM School Committee is a standing committee of the IHM Education Commissions. In other words, the School Committee is an ongoing, regular committee of the Education Commissions. There are five non-elected members of the School Committee: the Pastor, the school administrator, and two teacher representatives, one from grades K through 5 and one from grades 6 through 8. The other nine members of the committee are elected positions. The School Committee meets once a month from August through June. Additional meetings can be called by the chairperson if they are deemed necessary.

The functions of the School Committee are many and varied. The members are involved in writing and making recommendations to the Education Commissions concerning such matters as school policy, hiring of an administrator and budget considerations. The School Committee also acts as a voice for the school as it oversees the implementation of the strategic plan. It functions as our School Improvement Committee.

Membership on the IHM School Committee is a fun and challenging way to be actively involved in your child's school. Elected members serve a term of two years, beginning in June and may serve an optional 3rd year. If you are into planning, organizing, supporting, and creating the future of your child's school, then this is the place for you!

School Marketing Group

The primary goal of The School Marketing Group, which reports to the School Committee, is to ensure stable enrollment at our School. That goal is best achieved by actively making our school's presence and its enrollment opportunities known to members of both our parish communities, to other parishes without schools, and to the surrounding communities. Marketing Group activities include sponsoring the annual Spirit Wear Sale, producing various press releases, church bulletin articles, welcome letters to families of newly baptized children, maintaining School Bulletin Boards at both parish sites, articles to the weekly School Bulletin, membership in community organizations, and sponsorship of many of the activities during annual Catholic Schools Week. If you would like to share your time and talent with this important group, please contact the marketing group.
