Throughout the 2021-2022 Academic Year at Immaculate Conception High School, we are taking a deeper dive into Leisure Reading with a PURPOSE. Our Student Advisory Program, Time For Us Tuesday, allows us to organically form small Book Clubs within our own building that will lead and guide conversations that are a MUST at the High School Level. Each month we have chosen a particular topic to discuss and the books that will accompany this topic of conversation.
Time for Us Tuesday on SEPTEMBER 28th
Over the Summer, we read the following novel written by Kate Fagan as a student body. This book is a follow up from the moving assembly that we had last year, and will be followed up with various discussions, activities, and collaborative projects.
