Immaculate Heart High School faculty recently welcomed the freshman Class of 2024 to campus, for a field day in advance of the school’s planned reopening for hybrid learning on Monday, April 12.

Though the freshmen had a virtual welcome to the school in the fall, this was the first time many of them had ever been on campus, and the faculty made sure their visit was one to remember.

In small groups, faculty members led the students in several activities, including a tour of campus to show them their classrooms and tie-dying shirts in freshman green. And, most excitingly for the students, they had the chance to enjoy the sunny day together and talk to each other face-to-face rather than screen-to-screen.

Along with the shirts they had hand-dyed, the freshmen also received goodie bags and a red rose to commemorate the day.

The festivities were an opportunity for the freshmen to get to know their way around the campus where they will begin to attend in-person classes when the school returns from Easter Break on Monday, April 12. Though things will not return entirely to “normal,” the school’s hybrid schedule means that rotating small groups of students will attend classes on campus while those not on campus continue to join virtually from home.

It has been a long road to reopening, and Immaculate Heart looks forward to welcoming students, faculty and staff safely back to campus.
