Truly Inspiring Everyone This Holiday Season

Inspire Choir has had a very busy couple of months performing at the Elmwood Hall Senior Center and the City War Memorial Veterans Day ceremony spreading joy with their beautiful voices. They also performed at the Danbury Mall, Night of Hope fundraiser for Cancer research and Nonnewaug Meadows.

They made a very special trip to Radio City in NYC on December 8 to open for the Radio City Christmas Spectacular performing Mary, Did You Know. They continue to inspire people everywhere with their amazing talent. Listen to the song on our social media handles.

IHS is proud to congratulate choral singers Ava Viola ‘23 and Olivia Chila ‘25, who have been invited to participate at the Connecticut Western Regional High School Festival after a rigorous audition involving the preparation of an English art song, sight singing and performing scales and arpeggios. The festival will be at Greenwich High School on January 13 and 14. We are very proud of their accomplishments.


The IHS Nursing Program Has Been Busy!

The CNA students began their on-site clinical work at Hancock Hall in Danbury this fall. Students had been preparing for their visit to Hancock Hall by practicing their skills in our nursing lab, a simulated hospital room, with instructor Marie Hatcher. The program also toured the Western Connecticut State University simulation lab this month where they programmed mannequins to simulate illnesses in patients.


International Week

International Week brought with it a host of interesting and fun activities from ping pong tournaments and trivia contests to delectable treats from around the world. The IHS dining hall turned into an Italian Cucina, an Asian Kitchen and a French Bistro. Thank you to everyone who gave of their time and expertise to make this week an exciting and informative one.


Giving Back

The Immaculate Girls Varsity Volleyball team raised $600 for the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation helping fund research and the spread of lifesaving information. Congratulations to the team and we applaud their efforts to find and support such an amazing charity.

Theresa Paris ‘25 and Melena Ventresca ‘25 (with help from Theresa’s cousin Marguerite) volunteered their time and talents this past weekend making and selling rosaries at the Saint Mary craft fair. The girls collected more than $200 to donate to the Sisters of Life!


Key Club and Operation Christmas Child

Our IHS Key Club delivered 73 shoeboxes this season stuffed with gifts to Samaritan's Purse. Key Club also donated a large box of extra presents for Samaritan's Purse. Operation Christmas Child provides presents to children around the world during the Christmas season. We are so grateful for the IHS community support we received.


The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

Congratulations to our Drama Club whose hard work and commitment paid off in dividends with a long weekend of amazing Legend of Sleepy Hollow performances. The audience interaction made the shows even more enjoyable, and we all look forward to the next performances. Kudos to the cast and crew for bringing this story to life!

More Happenings...

Our freshmen classes recently held discussions on saints as an introduction to concepts and themes being discussed throughout their reading of Fahrenheit 451. Students were tasked with writing responses to discussion questions, then silently commenting on their classmates' answers.

IHS Students took part in a Distracted Driver Simulation seminar where they were tasked with driving a simulation car, much like a video game, while holding a cell phone. The catch was that the pre-programmed phone sent texts and the students needed to answer them while driving. They quickly caught on that doing both is difficult and very dangerous!

The students also had a visit from the JCK Foundation, a non-profit organization supporting mental health awareness within our community and in our schools. The important message that was conveyed during the assembly was that we are not alone and there is always hope. You can read more about the program at

This year, IHS launched a program called eSports. Ryan Blecharczyk, the program’s coach, points to a “rise in universities’ scholarships in this area because it’s a growing field – one that can lead to successful careers in programming and gaming.” Immaculate students will have an opportunity to win scholarship money at the end of their season’s competition.

IHS's CyberPatriots team placed 4th in the state in the high-school division in the first round of competition this fall. CyberPatriots, a program of the Air & Space Forces Association, aims to inspire K-12 students toward careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation's future. Teams are given a set of virtual operating systems and are tasked with finding and fixing cybersecurity vulnerabilities while maintaining critical services.
