ICS Fifth Graders explore the history of Johnson’s Island

The fifth graders at Immaculate Conception School are preparing for the opportunity to be archeologists this spring. Mrs. Jane Drusbacky’s class will once again have the experience of participating in the Experiential Learning Program in Historical Archaeology offered by the Center for Historic and Military Archaeology of Heidelberg University. 

As the students prepare to explore and learn about the Johnson’s Island Civil War Military Prison site, Dr. David R. Bush visited their classroom last Wednesday to give the students the insight and background of the field experience scheduled for May 5. Dr. Bush is the site director for the Johnson’s Island Civil War Military Prison and a Professor of Anthropology.

Johnson's Island held more than 10,000 Confederate officers between 1862 and 1865. The students viewed a PowerPoint presentation by Dr. Bush, which included historical pictures and facts about life and conditions at the POW camp. Dr. Bush's excavations there are providing unprecedented information about the activities, health, and living conditions of the prisoners. Dr. Bush both informed and excited the fifth graders of the adventure to come later this spring.

Paige Reinick, ICS Principal for a day

 

Fourth grader Paige Reineck was all smiles in the hallways Thursday morning as she greeted her students and prepared for her new position, Principal of Immaculate Conception School in Port Clinton (for a day, that is). Paige took to the PA system late in the day on Wednesday to announce the changes she would put into action for the next day. Her no uniforms policy delighted her classmates. In addition, the entire school was treated to pizza for lunch by Principal Reineck. After lunch, Paige felt it was time to relax. The entire student body was invited to the school gym (in their slippers) to watch the new movie Frozen.

Paige spent much of the day on Thursday helping her mentor, Mrs. Connie Snyder, with office tasks and principal duties. Being Principal for a Day was auctioned off at last year’s Immaculate Conception School auction. This year’s auction is April 26 and the theme is “Happy 90th Birthday ICS”, as the school embarks on celebrating its 90th year of providing a faith filled education in Port Clinton. Immaculate Conception School would be so grateful for any donation from the community for this year’s auction. If you have an item you would like to offer to this year’s school auction or are interested in registering at ICS for the upcoming school year, call the school office at 419.734.3315.
