The purpose of Immaculate Heart of Mary School is an extension of the purpose of the church, ‘To Teach As Jesus Did’. We, as members of a Catholic elementary-educational community, promote life-giving relationships among teachers, students and parents, who encompass our school community. By our faith, support, understanding, knowledge and good example, we aspire to infuse in our students an appreciation and love for their Catholic education. Catholic education is at the heart of the Immaculate Heart of Mary School not simply as a concept to be taught, but as a reality to be lived. Faculty, parents, and students must be moved through education to build a community in all areas of life. This goal can and will be accomplished, not only through working and learning, but by example and experience in the light of faith. Working together as a team, praying, trusting, and sharing, the community of Immaculate Heart of Mary School will then be truly a reality to be lived. The mission of Immaculate Heart of Mary School is to instill Catholic values through education. As educators and parents we are committed to a partnership that develops and nurtures the unique God-given gifts and abilities of our children, so they may live in the 21 st century with a positive self-image as responsible members of society.
