Families from Ukraine

Immaculate Heart of Mary School (IHMS) welcomes Ukrainians seeking refuge in our province.
IHMS has received more than 50 families and 70 students from Ukraine. The school still has some capacity to receive additional students, but some classes are now at capacity.

*** Due to the generosity of our alumni and friends and the mission and vision of the Sister Servants of Mary Immaculate, IHMS continues to support all families arriving from Ukraine by offering greatly reduced tuition and fees, and as well, school uniforms, school supplies and before and after child care at no cost to the families.***

IHMS offers a caring, compassionate and supportive Ukrainian community.
Although our language of instruction is English, the majority of our faculty and staff and many of our students are fluent in Ukrainian.
If you know of a Ukrainian family seeking education for their children please contact Rod Picklyk (Principal) for more information.

Lent is a special time of prayer, sacrifice, and good works in preparation for the celebration of Easter. Parents, family and friends are invited to a Lenten Prayer Service at 9:00AM, Thursday, February 22. At the Divine Liturgy on March 22, we will bless pussy willows and teach the children about Palm Sunday.  Each of the students will be able to bring a pussy willow home with them to share with their family.  This year our Lenten Focus is on LOVE!!  Each week the school will focus on different people we love: Jesus, School, Friends, Family, Self and Community.  Every morning during Lent, the students and staff pray the Prayer of St. Ephrem. As a Christian Service Project during Lent, IHMS will be raising money to support refugee families from Ukraine that have been impacted by the war that started 2 years ago.

I Love to Read Month!

“I Love to Read Month” is a month long celebration that is held each year to encourage reading, writing, and sharing in the joy of literacy. This year’s theme is “Our Voices are Unique”. This theme is meant to help readers recognize the importance of being their true selves and sharing their stories. We can develop a deeper understanding of different perspectives by sharing our own stories and by listening to others’ stories.  Check the IHMS Weekly eNews for special ‘I Love to Read Week’ activities, and guest readers, at IHMS the week of February 26!
