Immaculate Conception High School once again welcomed area grade school and middle school students from Elmhurst and the surrounding communities to get a first-hand look at the high school. Attendees took advantage of the personal tours, and also got to hear from administrators, faculty and ICHS students.
More than 325 people attended one of the two ICHS Open Houses, Oct. 18 and Nov. 21. As they arrived faculty, coaches and club moderators were on hand to answer
questions about their teams and/or areas. Attendees were then greeted with an opening prayer delivered by IC Pastor Father Tom Paul and Associate Pastor Father Scott McCawley. ICHS Principal Pam Levar also spoke
briefly, thanking the crowds of prospective students and their families for taking the time to come in for a closer look at ICHS. Before heading off on their guided tours, senior Amy Ridder shared her own personal insights on why she chose to attend ICHS and her unique perspective of her four years as an ICHS Knight.
Upon conclusion of the main session, attendees were led through a variety of academic department presentations by faculty in the classrooms throughout the high school. There were dedicated areas for athletics and student activities
where the interested grade school and middle school students could visit with coaches, players and activity leaders.
Those who missed the open houses who would like to learn more about ICHS, can have the student spend a shadow day or make arrangements for a personal tour. Call the admissions office at 530-530-3484 or check the web-
