This year's Sophomore Spirit Day was held on May 26, 2021!
Members of the Class of 2023 enjoyed a Disney-themed Sophomore Spirit Day, representing four teams: Yellow Team (Epcot), Blue Team (Magic Kingdom), Green Team (Animal Kingdom), and Red Team (Hollywood Studios).
Sophomores kicked off the morning with a bagel breakfast outside then headed into the PAC for Jeopardy, Teacher Baby Picture Match, Name that Tune - Disney Edition, and Team Pictionary. The Class of 2023 then went out to the field to play Tug of War, Water Balloon Toss, and have a Scavenger Hunt. Their fun day continued with a Sing-Off in the PAC, where the yellow team was named the winners of the day and led their classmates in singing the IHA Alma Mater. The day concluded with a Ben & Jerry's ice cream truck party!
Thank you to the IHA Administration, faculty and staff volunteers, and especially Ms. Maureen McNulty, sophomore class moderator, for planning a great day for the Class of 2023. Photos courtesy of Patrizia Tersigni, Berta Roldan, and Tara Hopfenspirger; video courtesy of Jessi Shaheen.

“A small group of people helps Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques, and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus’ life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus’ messages of kindness, tolerance, and love come vibrantly to life.” – MTI

The Memory Project is a charitable nonprofit organization that invites art teachers, art students, and solo artists to help cultivate global kindness by creating portraits for children around the world who have faced substantial challenges such as violence, war, extreme poverty, neglect, and loss of parents. IHA's Advanced Painting and Drawing students created portraits for girls in Afghanistan. Malala Yousafzai, the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner in history, is working tirelessly to improve the lives of girls. Our students created portraits for girls in programs supported by Malala's network.
On the evening of Dec. 9, 2019, twenty-six of our amazingly talented singers performed on stage at Radio City Music Hall. Under the direction of Mrs. Barbara Donatacci, choral music director and teacher, the IHA students performed a breathtaking rendition of "Mary, Did You Know?" on the Great Stage before the 8 p.m. showing of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular.
Soloists included Jenna Clover’20, Allison Sandt’20, Alyssa Longo’21, Alexis Mason’22, and Laura Rickli’22. Close to one hundred people from Immaculate Heart traveled into New York City that evening to support our girls during the amazing experience and enjoy the rest of the popular Christmas show!
