Immaculate Conception Honors Veterans

Paige Reineck and Annabelle Barna present the flag at ICS's Veteran Day Mass.  

Immaculate Conception School held its annual salute to Veterans Friday, November 7.   This year Veteran’s Day was celebrated with a Mass dedicated to the safety of our Military, but also gave thanks for the freedoms and peace we take for granted each and every day.  Students that participate in Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts wore with pride their uniforms for this special celebration.   

Mass began with the presentation of the flag by fifth grade students Paige Reineck and Anabelle Barna.  Father John Missler began Mass with a prayer of thanksgiving for the men and women who have worn the uniforms of our military and the sacrifices they have made.  The prayers of gratitude and petitions for safety, freedom, and peace continued throughout.  The National Anthem and “God Bless America” was led by Music Director, Mrs. Mary Krejci.   

To all Veterans, the children and staff of Immaculate Conception wish to say thank you!

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.”
