ICE Stories

“I have trouble staying organized, and it’s hard for me to take a written test. But Ms. Walker helps me by letting me take my tests one-on-one. She asks me the questions and lets me answer out loud. She also helps me by taking a picture of the assignment board in case I forget to write it down, and that way I always know what homework to do.”
-Samantha
“At Holy Family, the kids in the school know Joey’s name and he counts among his close friends those within his class. His smile says it all. He is at home. “

One of the Stories of the Decade (Catholic Sentinel):

Catholic Schools began welcoming students with disabilities.

Let’s see if the doors might swing a bit farther open in the next decade!

I hope that finding ways to do it includes providing educators excellent training on inclusion and serving students with learning challenges.

Hoping this mindset finds its way to our area one day!

Megan Schiedler was the first at Our Lady of the Lake, then Marisa started in 2010.

Nicole Gentile Kay. For you!!
