A Note From Administration
Advent, the traditional time leading us to the miracle of Christmas, is very special at Immaculate. In addition to celebrating the Marian Feast of the Immaculate Conception of our Blessed Mother, the season encourages us to contemplate God's unconditional love and His gift of His Son.
To demonstrate the enormity of His gift and to bring renewed hope to others, our students, staff and faculty have been engaged in actively giving of themselves. Our choral and guitar students enlightened the local community by singing joy-filled Christmas carols at the Danbury Fair Mall; our school community enriched the lives of the homeless by collecting over 900 cereal boxes for the Dorothy Day Hospitality House; our Key Club brought light to young children by raising funds to collect over 700 children's books and our NHS students are collecting gift cards for families in need. In addition, our Student Peer Leadership Group is leading an acceptance and kindness program to encourage students to extend themselves to take the time to be inclusive and appreciate the uniqueness of others in the school building and beyond.
In addition to giving to others, we have been busy celebrating our student accomplishments including All American soccer player Kristen Roessler, Student of the Month, Lauren Oskam, our newly inducted NHS students and Rotary and Exchange Club recognitions as well as welcoming new students to the Class of 2021, reviewing our academic program offerings for the 2018-19 school year and broadening our over forty-five extra-curricular activities.
During this season of giving, it is important that we share our sincere gratitude for your generous gifts of support. Our Giving Tuesday and the many recent generous gifts to our I Am Immaculate Fund enable us to support our mission to provide excellent academic programs and personalized learning opportunities for every student. Thank you!
May these final days of Advent bring each of you and your families renewed hope, joy and love.
