Last weekend, we celebrated Catechetical Sunday within our parish community. This particular Sunday is set aside to honor all catechists - those who teach the ways of the faith. ICD’s teachers and staff members are a witness of Jesus’s love for your children each day in many ways, both big and small. They are purposeful in teaching your students about Jesus but also allow conversations about Jesus to happen organically. They give hugs, dry tears, facilitate restorative conversations among students, play at recess, offer academic guidance, assist during Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, help at lunch, listen to jokes, offer words of encouragement when a child may be struggling, pray with kids, and so much more. Thank you to all who serve as Catechists within the preschool program!

A Few Important Safety-Related Notes:

  • If you are on campus for any reason throughout the day when older children are outside at recess, we ask that you not visit with your own children unless you have signed in with the office. Oftentimes, the adults who are in supervisory roles are not familiar with who students may be talking with, causing concern.
  • If you are picking up a half-day preschool student, we ask that you not allow younger children, including preschool students, to visit older siblings who may be at recess.
  • If you are a parent of a female student who has pierced ears, please make sure that earrings worn to school are simple stud earrings. Earrings that “dangle” can pose a safety issue as students engage in play activities throughout the day.
Thank you for your cooperation!
