Celebrities read to children at ICS

Fire Chief Kent Johnson choose a book given to give by his mother to read to the ICS fifth grade class. 

Immaculate Conception Catholic School spent Tuesday morning listening to local celebrities read their favorite children’s stories as part of National Young Readers Day 2014.  National Young Reader’s Day is celebrated the second Tuesday of November each year to remind of us the benefits and rewards of reading.  This special day was created by Pizza Hut and the Center of the Book in the Library of Congress in 1989 as a means to celebrate literacy.  

This year’s celebrity readers at Immaculate Conception included Officer David Scott from the PCPD, Sister Marilyn Ann Angel S.N.D, Fire Chief Kent Johnson, Ida Rupp Children’s Librarian Miss Marissa Frantz, Ottawa County Probate/Juvenile Court Judge Kathleen Geisler, and Port Clinton Mayor Vince Leone.  The day was organized by reading teacher Rachell Paeth.  

The students at I.C.S. wish to thank these adults who took time out of their busy days to read to them.  The celebrities emphasized with the students the importance of reading.  In the words of Dr. Seuss “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn the more places you'll go.”


Immaculate Conception School thank veterans

Dalton Boyd designs a place mat that honors the true bravery of Veterans. 

When we think of the sacrifices of Veterans, the word ‘thank you’ doesn’t quite seem to be enough in comparison.   But, we are left with these simple words to express our understanding and gratitude for all the veterans have given to make this country strong and safe.  

The children at Immaculate Conception School have been reflecting on what Veterans Day means to them as they have each designed a placemat for the VFW to use on Veterans Day.  Each of the placemats is unique, but all of them show the student’s pride in American and their never ending appreciation for the freedoms given to them by a Veteran.  The placemats are being completed by every grade level and will be presented to the VFW for Veterans Day.
