ICS announces Art Show winners

The Art Show at Immaculate Conception School in Port Clinton last weekend was a testament to the talent and creativity of the students at ICS. There were realistic pieces, sculptures, pottery pieces, weavings, and much more. Anyone who took the time to browse the art was amazed by the unique projects and the ability of the students. The art was judged last Friday by an outside artist and ribbons were awarded for first, second and third place. Several other pieces received “art achievement” ribbons for outstanding effort. Many pieces from the show will be sent to the Ottawa County Fair to be displayed and judged this summer. The show was organized by art teacher Joni Hoffman.

Kindergarteners and first graders at ICS map it out

ICS kindergarteners and first graders study maps as a part of an extended study pilot program. 

Members of the Immaculate Conception kindergarten and first grade took a little closer look at maps this week. ICS in Port Clinton is testing a pilot program that will eventually be school-wide as they move toward a Continuous Progress educational system. The program is being taught by Mrs. Susie Adams and Miss Karly Cross. A teacher-selected group of students are being challenged with topics that give them the opportunity to explore and learn in a hands-on setting. This week the eight students took an up close and in depth look at maps. 

Each student was asked to bring in a map from home. The selection produced maps of Ohio, groups of American states, Lake Erie, a Hawaiian Island and even Walt Disney World. The children looked at the differences and similarities in these maps and concluded that more detail can be placed on maps that are zoomed in and the larger the scope of the map the less detailed the map can be. The children also noted differences in maps such as symbols, color, keys, drawings vs. aerial photographs and inserts. The group will explore other fun and challenging topics in both science and social studies through the end of the school year.
