[IMMACULATE HEART] Hello, November

Lauren Berger ’18

November 3rd marks Immaculate Heart’s 44th annual WALK. An excellent way to burn off lingering Halloween candy, students will come together with faculty, staff members and parents to walk and run around neighboring Los Feliz. Look for our group—about 1,000 participants in pink shirts—marching through local streets. After a hilly workout, students will return to campus for (much deserved) music and food.

The WALK is Immaculate Heart’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Incentivized by prizes, including ice cream and donut parties, WALK money is raised by students for students. In the past, WALK funds have been used for such school projects as air conditioning for the auditorium, upgraded classroom desks and chairs, and new turf on our ball field.

Also on tap in November is Immaculate Heart’s Academic Playday, where rising freshman and potential Pandas can get to know the faculty and campus through student-led tours, informal workshops, and a concluding barbeque. Current 8th graders can register for the informative and fun half-day, hosted on Saturday November 4th, either by contacting the school’s Admissions Department or signing up online on the Admissions page found on our website (www.immaculateheart.org). Students unable to attend are encouraged to sign up for one of the many Shadow Days held throughout the month of November.

Before IH students are stuffed with Thanksgiving glee, the Genesians will debut the first high school production of the year. The fall play is an adaptation of “The Matchmaker” by Thornton Wilder. It opens Thursday, November 5, at 7:30 p.m. and continues for four performances. Tickets can be purchased at the door.
