Homecoming Early Dismissal

September 21st

12:40pm – We will load buses starting at 12:30.


Attached is the lineup for Friday’s homecoming parade. Please remember that we’re starting earlier than usual: lining up at 1:00 to roll at 1:30. We so appreciate your participation this year and the work you do to make homecoming a positive community event.

St. Malachy students and alumni who are 14 years old can now take the written part of the Iowa Driver’s Test at St. Malachy during study hall!  Once the student passes the exam they will need to go to the courthouse with a parent to pay for the learner’s permit and take their ID picture.

September 26 – 9:15 Mass – 4th grade

October 3 – Rosary 8:50 – 8th Grade

October 3 – 9:15 Mass – 8th Grade

Spirit Day is Friday, Sept 21 – Students may wear sweatpants for $1.  Money collected goes into a school “pay-it-forward” fund that helps others in our community in the time of illness or death.  This first spirit day is: show your pride for Iowa or Iowa State!!!
