Dress Down
Our first official dress down day is Friday, September 28, in honor of the Indee Homecoming. Students are permitted to completely dress down. On dress down days students are not garment-restricted. They may wear sweats, athletic shorts, t-shirts of their choice, etc. However, this particular dress down day is to join in the Indee H.S. homecoming celebration, so wearing IHS colors is encouraged.   



God answers our prayers in three ways:
1) Yes
2) Not yet
3) I have something better in mind

Please join me in congratulating these students who read seven or more books during their summer vacation. They were invited to attend  a breakfast hosted by me, Mr. Gieryng, for their efforts. I hope to see them (and more) again next year. 

Butterfly Tagging
Our fourth graders tagged 17 butterflies on Thursday. 

Thank You!

I have enjoyed your overwhelming response to my request for paper towel cardboard cylinders. I have received all that I need. So, THANK YOU very much for your donations. I will be sure to send pictures of their roller coasters when the students finish.    -  Jim Gieryng

Order Online, time's running out
Here is the link for the new SJ apparel. Online ordering ends Sunday, September 9th.

Volunteers and drivers... We are obligated to comply with a new Archdiocesan policy. If you plan to either serve as a volunteer or an event/trip driver during the upcoming school year, you must complete the following trainings - Safe Environments and Be Smart Drive Safe. These trainings can be found at We are part of the Archdiocese of Dubuque. If you have already completed the Driver course, you will not be required to take it again, but all volunteers that work with or around our students must complete the Safe Environments course (It is a 75 minute video).
