Early Childhood Information Night

Please sign-up to visit St. Malachy School on February 15th to learn more about our Kindergarten and Preschool programs. This is an evening to meet your child's potential teacher and see the classrooms. We will have K and PK Round-Up on March 25th, Round-Up will be a time when your child can see the room and meet the teacher.

Because we know it is important that you visit our school in person. In order to keep everyone safe, we ask that you follow these simple rules:

-Select the teacher/classroom you would like to visit (you may sign up for more than one teacher)

-Both parents are welcome

-No students - we will meet the students on Round-Up day on March 25th

If you have questions please call St. Malachy School - 641-782-7125 or email
