NEW WELCOME FAMILY PARTY

While we had hoped to be welcoming you as a group at our New Family Welcome Party, in the current COVID environment, we have determined that hosting such a large parent gathering isn't the best thing to do right now. We absolutely still want you to have plenty of the opportunities to get to know the families at Immacolata.  Each of you has been assigned a buddy family and we have asked the buddy family to reach out to. you to plan an activity within the first couple of weeks of school.  Bud, don't wait to ask questions if you have them.  The buddy families volunteered and are ready to answer your questions!

If you have any trouble reaching your buddy family, please let Kelly Studer know (kellykryder@yahoo.com, (310) 570-0089).

UNIFORM TIPS

  • Just-Me-Apparel is a local store that has our jumpers and Immacolata logo polos.  The jumpers sometimes need to be ordered, so be sure to allow time for that. They also have adorable headbands, scrunchies etc.

  • Immacolata has a used uniform drive where you can purchase used jumpers at a discounted price.

  • Ask your buddy family if they know anyone that has jumpers to pass down.

  • Boys polos and shorts can be purchased at Target / Vineyard Vines / online (French Toast) etc.  There is a wicking option at Target that some boys love.

  • For boys that are still working on potty training, there are "Myself Belts" that are velcro or magnetic belts that stay on over shorts with belt loops that have enough elastic in them., he can pull the shorts down without detaching a belt.

  • If you have any other great tips - let us know and we will add them!
