Our Donors Make Incredible Things Possible at ICS

View the slideshow to see some examples of the impact philanthropy makes on Immaculata Catholic School.

​As we shifted and adapted throughout 2020 and 2021, the generous support of our donors made it possible to continue to deliver on Immaculata's promise of a values-centered, top-quality education in a safe and loving environment. Our students and staff gained so much resilience this past year. Like sandpaper, the conditions these past years could be course, yet the result is a polished shine as we shape tomorrow's leaders. 

With individualized packs of supplies, STEM projects still were an important part of our curriculum this year even when collaboration had to be from a distance.

Technology has been an important tool for years at Immaculata and never more so than this year. Our students and teachers learned many new software programs and ways of learning and communicating remotely while staying #virtuallytogether.

7th grade student carves a potter's mark, which she will imprint on a tea cup. This art project is a culminating activity after a cross-curricular unit on the science and culture of tea, which includes the study of Asian culture in Social Studies and a science lab on hot and cold brewing effects on tea.

PreK student ensures her plant is secure during an Earth Day project.

Kindergartners look on at the new insect hotel purchased with a grant from NC Beautiful. This will serve as a model for the entomology elective next year to create more pollinators and helpful insects to our campus gardens.

Ms. Nations leads her 4th graders in a literature circle discussion with book sets purchased with Raise the Paddle funds.

Both PreK classes enjoyed a fancy "Sip and Paint" session with juice boxes, aprons, berets, personal easels and more thanks to Raise the Paddle funds.

Beautiful new items for our garden brought serenity to the courtyard this Spring.

We began the process of replacing older Promethean Smart Boards this year. These new LED, mobile units are wonderful and will really give teachers more options in the classroom.

Second graders are never bored with an art cart right in the room. Creative exploration is right within reach.

Middle School student paints a rock as part of our all school collaborative art project to create a beautiful collection of painted rocks for our courtyard garden.

Our band received a donation for shiny new instruments to keep the music playing. We are so hopeful to hear them in person next year.

Immaculata ran a robust distance learning program throughout the 2020-21 school year thanks in large part to the dedication of our staff and teachers and donations toward technology to keep us all connected.
