    Middle School Students Enjoy Learning Adventure in Smoky Mountains

    A group of our Middle School students and teachers spent the last three days at The Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont. While there, they explored the glow of quartz rocks, went on a two-mile geology hike, and were even able to see a waterfall and put their heads under. They also learned about how mountains are made and different types of rocks.

    This educational experience was made possible, in part, to generous donations to our school's "I Give Catholic" fundraiser last November. Thank you to all who support our students!

    Scott Lencke, ICCS Latin Teacher
    In one of the most well-known film scenes from the past few decades, Mr. Keating (played by Robin Williams) takes his students into the hallways of Welton Academy to catch a glimpse of the many students who have gone before them. Carpe diem ("seize the day"), as he goes on to tell them.Today, I took a similar journey with a couple of my Latin classes. I took them into the hallways and stairwells of Immaculate Conception Cathedral School (ICCS), and showed them some of the trophies displayed in the cases.We discovered a trophy from all the back to 1950! Pretty cool for a 3rd and 4th grader. Yet, ICCS actually began in 1922. The school has had many successful and well-known people attend through the decades, with some of the more prominent folk being Priscilla Presley and Margaret Scobey.This year, we have approx 160 students and, so, if we just kept things simple and said 160 students have attended each year over our 102 years of existence, we could estimate that thousands of students have walked these hallways. Thousands.Walking up stairs, filing through hallways, learning composition, cursive, Latin, reading classic novels, studying western history and culture, instilling the virtues of the Christian faith, and so much more. That is what we are attempting to do at ICCS. This is our endeavor to, in our own educational journey, seize the day (carpe diem). By God's grace, we shall.
