The month of May has been a very special prayerful time at Immaculate. In addition to daily intercession prayers to our Blessed Mother for the people of Ukraine, the St. Joseph and Fairfield Prep high school communities as well as for the Uvalde, Texas families, our prayers have been for the repose of our friend Gerry Robilotti, a beloved Danbury community leader and selfless volunteer Advisory Board member who was dedicated to advancing our school mission. On Ascension Thursday, we gathered as a community for Mass with Rev. Karol Ksiazek from St. Rose of Lima Church, Newtown.
This past week we welcomed our youngest Mustangs, the Class of 2026! Students were greeted by our school counseling team, principal, assistant principal and admissions director and learned about next steps in their Immaculate High School journey. In addition to a dinner and music by our fine arts department, students played a scavenger hunt game and went home with an “Immaculate Bound Class of 2026” lawn sign.
The annual school musical, Suessical, the spring fine arts show and cabaret were tremendous successes! A special thanks to play producers and directors and teachers, Kathleen Czel, Sabrina Post, Jen Doherty, Samantha Kohler, Leslie Quinn and Anthony Pellegrini for their amazing enthusiasm and support of our young thespians and artists.
Students have completed their AP exams, our sports teams are ending a successful spring season, the juniors and seniors enjoyed their prom and all of us are looking forward to the next few weeks of celebrating our Class of 2022 students and their accomplishments.
Our vision and our ability to be successful during challenging times is reflective of the collaborative commitment and efforts of our teachers, staff, parents and board of directors as well as the tremendous support of alumni and friends. Selfless efforts, dedication and generous contributions are what enable us to provide every student an excellent, personally rewarding Catholic high school experience.
It is without a doubt that we are a genuinely blessed, vibrant, faith-filled school community.
