The mid-winter blahs are off-set by Mini-Class Week, a chance for the students to learn things not normally taught in the classroom. Volunteers from around the CLC come to Immanuel to demonstrate their hobbies or interests and give students a chance to try their hand and activities as diverse as CAD and Java Programming to auto mechanics, wood-burning, soldering, crocheting, skin care and pie-making.
Piano and Organ Recital
The students who take piano and organ lessons at Immanuel present some of their work at two recitals a school year, usually held near the end of each semester. These recitals often follow a theme and are open to parents, friends and the public.
Bragging rights are at stake each year on the Monday of Final Test week as the classes compete for supremacy in traditional track and field events as well as some not-so-normal activities including hacky-sack, endurance course, egg toss and the Tea House Lawn games. Ultimate victory is often decided by the final event, tug-of-war, the winner of which calls itself the unofficial champion of the day, all points aside.
The second semester of the school year concludes with an evening of musical enjoyment as the various student organizations present some of the fruits of their labors. The mass choir and tour choir end the evening with singing and other forms of music all pointing to our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Graduation marks the end of the school year as our students prepare venture out into the work force, into further education or begin a call in the public ministry. It's a bittersweet day as we recognize and appreciate the blessings our Lord has showered upon us throughout the year and how we will miss the closeness that has developed through the year.
