Dear IJP Families,

The No Cook Wednesday event at Portillo’s on Halsted was a big hit. The restaurant let us know that there was a great crowd with IJP flyers both inside and in the drive-thru!  Thank you so much for supporting our efforts to get more fundraising dollars in the school building.  We are really working to cover the costs of updating our need for a new bell/PA system for the safety of the school. Every dollar is needed.  We will continue our No Cook Wednesdays next month. Stay tuned and share with family and friends!

Please join us for All School Mass every Wednesday at 9:00 am.  We do not have Mass on Wednesday, October 31st. Mass will be on Thursday, November 1st at 10:00 am for All Saints Day.


It is not too late! Fall Trivia Night is tomorrow, Saturday, October 13th at 7:00 pm in the gym. Come join the fun and test your trivia knowledge. Bring yourself or a whole team.  We will also pull the winning ticket for the #OnwardIJP raffle.  Let your friends and extended family know to come out and support the school fundraiser.

Please save the date!  The Trunk or Treat Community Event will take place on Saturday, October 27th from 6-8 pm. Halloween Fun for all ages.

The November Lunch Menu has been posted on the school website under the “Hot Lunch Program” tab. Please have your student’s menu selections in by Friday, October 26th at the latest.  We want to start out November lunches as smoothly as possible. You may email menus directly to Country House at You may also bring the menus to the School Office, with a check made out to Country House if you do not have your credit card on file with the company.
