ICCS Begins New School Year with Old Traditions

Everything old is new again at ICCS’s high school!  Students in grades 9-12 showed up for the first day of school on Aug. 13 sporting the iconic “IC popover,” — a part of the high school uniform making a comeback after nine years.  To commemorate the return of this beloved school tradition, Paulette’s Restaurant surprised the high school girls by donating 200 of their own famous popovers — the warm, flaky and delicious kind, complete with fresh strawberry butter — to enjoy on their first day.  Several alumnae, many wearing their own vintage “IC popover,” stopped by to welcome the girls and join in the first-day fun.  

The first day for high school students culminated with the time-honored tradition of the Freshman Capping Ceremony in the Cathedral, during which each high school freshman was “capped” with the “IC beanie” by a senior student who will serve as her big sister throughout the school year.
