HAPPY CATHOLIC SCHOOLS’ WEEK!!! I am proud and humbled to be a Catholic school teacher. I have spent my 40 year career in this Catholic school. I have been inspired by ICRS’s reputation, growth, and outreach. We are truly an impactful part of the lives of many students who have walked our halls. We have instilled a strong academic foundation for students’ educational path, fostered a sense of a community and service, and planted seeds of faith. Well done Immaculate Conception Regional School!
Here are some details of the week:
Monday: Pizza lunch. Way to go 8th graders! What great helpers! Spelling Bee: Congratulations Lauren Schultz and Veronica Oropeza! They represented our class well.
