Early Childhood Information Night


Please sign-up to visit St. Malachy School on February 16th to learn more about our Kindergarten and PK 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 26th, 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)

-We ask that you please wear a mask

-Please send only one parent

-No students - we will meet the students on Round-Up day on March 26th.

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

WANT TO BE A SUB AT STM??? You just need an associate's degree. WE NEED SUBS!

February 1st - 5th & 4th grade

5th and 4th grade will have Mass in the Gym

All other classes will attend online. Please remember students in grades K-8 dress for Mass rather they are in the classroom or the gym.

Going to be gone?

If your child is going to be gone you must inform Mrs. Lane slane@crestonstmalachy.org and your child's teacher.
Mrs. Lane will need to ask specifics about your child's absence because of COVID.


Want to learn from home?

The teachers do not have information preloaded into the student's accounts if they are suddenly sick. Items may need to be picked up for them to follow along.

The teachers may not be aware that the child is wanting to learn online on a sick day. Please reach out to the teacher for details about logging in.


Scheduled time away?

We know that from time-to-time that families need to travel for a wedding, funeral, or other obligations. Please contact Mrs. Lane and your child's teacher once details have been confirmed. This gives the teachers and the school time to prepare for your child's absence.
