“Take Me Out to the Ball Game” with ICS Graduating Class

It was the perfect day for baseball on Monday, as the Immaculate Conception School fifth grade graduation class and their teacher Mrs. Jane Drusbacky spent the day at the Mud Hens game in Toledo. It was the 2013 Mud Hens School Celebration Day at the field. The Mud Hens came from behind to tie the game in the fifth inning to tie the Syracuse Chiefs, but couldn’t pull out a win in extra innings. Regardless, the fifth graders had a great time at the stadium as a class.  Many fun events are planned for the fifth graders as the school year winds down in celebration of their accomplishments and their time at ICS together. These students have all been together since their preschool days which make the coming weeks bitter sweet for all.
