Immaculate Heart of Mary School
                                  Christ is the reason for this school

Community Service
A robust program of service to the community provides each student with an understanding of important life issues and focuses them on the needs of others. Each class has an annual project that involves them in caring for others.  Recent examples include first grade students providing support to a local animal shelter, second grade students sponsoring the basic needs of a young girl in South America and writing letters to shut-ins, and eighth graders organizing a food drive for a local community center.  This Fall our student council sponsored a food drive to benefit a local food pantry in our community.

Jingle Bell Jog

Immaculate Heart of Mary students raced against the clock to raise money during the annual Jingle Bell Jog.  Sponsors pledge on a per lap basis and the funds are donated to the Holy Childhood Association. IHM raised over $3,000 for needy children as part of this event!





Hats and Scarves

Over the holiday season, Immaculate Heart of Mary schoolchildren collected hats, scarves and mittens for local children in need.    











Senior Luncheon

Immaculate Heart of Mary Girl Scouts were Santa's helpers at the annual Knights of Columbus Senior Luncheon.  Local seniors were treated to lunch while the girl scouts sang holiday songs, helped Santa distribute goodies, and handed out ornaments the girls had made by hand.






Coat Collection

Immaculate Heart of Mary first-graders organized a coat collection for those in need. The coats they collected were distributed by Saint Mary's Outreach in Pompton Lakes.  Here the children display hand-made posters they designed in preparation for the drive.
