As we close another school year, we do so with great admiration for all of our students, teachers and staff. A remarkable year of dedication by our teachers, determination by our students and endless support by our team of counselors and staff sustained our vision to uphold our school mission and provide the best possible experience for the entire school community.
The year ended with much joy and celebration of all students. Our athletic teams were phenomenal in their spring season competitions with notable championship games by our boys baseball, girls softball as well as girls golf team. Our student actors in the musical, Suessical, earned twelve Halo nominations with Best Performance By A Couple or Dynamic Duo in A Musical awarded to Dominic Chila & Olivia Chila as Cat in the Hat & JoJo.
We are very proud of our Class of 2022 as they demonstrated their faith, resilience and Mustang Spirit. Their academic, athletic and artistic recognized accomplishments were tremendous throughout the school year. This class of 117 students were accepted to colleges and universities and 95% were awarded college scholarships and grants totaling $33.5 million. The top ten percent of students achieved an SAT score average of 1407. We were fortunate to be able to celebrate them these past few weeks by hosting a car parade, a Senior prom at Candlewood Inn, Class Night at Anthony’s Lake Club and our Baccalaureate Mass at St. Rose of Lima Church and Commencement Ceremony at the O'Neill Center. Please click here for the list of colleges and universities to which the Class of 2022 were accepted. We wish each and every one of these amazing young men and women many blessings in their college journey and beyond.
In addition to celebrating our students, we had an opportunity to celebrate the professional and personal time that our teachers offered to make sure that students had exceptional learning experiences this past school year. We are grateful to the Immaculate Parent Association (IPA) for hosting a number of student and teacher events and to our athletic fundraising parent group MASC for their support throughout the school year. We celebrated teacher Patricia Buckley, who is retiring from teaching theology at Immaculate for over twenty years as well as Joe DeMaida, who is retiring from his position as Dean of Student Affairs. Joe served as a social studies teacher at St. Rose School before joining the Immaculate community in 2015. We are thankful to each of them for their selfless commitment to Catholic education and for their dedication to our students. We wish them much happiness in their retirement years.
On behalf of everyone at Immaculate, words cannot express all of our gratitude for your ongoing support of all that we do at Immaculate. We are a blessed community. We are Immaculate strong.
Have a safe and enjoyable summer,
Mary R. Maloney
