Each month a small group of students at Immaculate Conception School are given the opportunity to take their love of art and their enthusiasm for creativity a step further than in their classroom weekly art lesson.  

Mrs. Joni Hoffman, ICS art teacher, offers an after school art club in which she selects a project that takes a little more time than her weekly classes allow for.  On Wednesday, the art club students made beautiful trees by cutting in half a cardboard toilet paper rolls which they then used to paint with. Each tree was as different as those found at a tree farm, but each just as beautiful as the next.


Advent is a time of waiting

Waiting for Christmas can be so hard, especially when you are in preschool.  Miss Mary Heschel’s class has been busy getting ready for the big day.  Songs have been sung, trees have been decorated, ornaments have been made and stories have been read.  But, ICS preschoolers have taken time to learn about advent as a time to prepare our hearts for the birthday of Jesus.   

The Immaculate Conception Preschool studies the church’s Advent wreath and talked about the true the meaning of the season.   The season of waiting is not easy for 3 and 4 year olds, but they have learned that the Birth of Jesus is the greatest gift of Christmas and so very much worth the wait.
