OWNERS OF SOUTHERN DRIFTER
The Southern Drifter ordering process for the 2019-2020 school year will take place NOW until JANUARY 31.

We understand your child will grow between now and then, we account for that growth. When you come in to pick up orders in June, your child can try on all uniform pieces and leave with items that fit.

NCEA DAY OF GIVING
The next National Catholic Education Association (NCEA) Day of Giving will be January 29-30, 2019
Twenty years ago, Saint Pope John Paul II said to an audience of Catholic educators in New Orleans: “Yours is a great gift to the Church, a great gift to your nation.” Countless people in our country, including families in the Lake Charles area, have been blessed by the many gifts of Catholic schools.
With this recognition in mind, the NCEA is pleased to present the online giving campaign: Many Gifts, One Nation: A Day of Giving to Catholic Schools. Parents and supporters can make a special monetary gift to ICCS through this program.
For the 2018 Day of Giving, more than $859,000 was raised from 6,957 donations to 539 schools, six dioceses and NCEA. This is just one example of the strength Catholic schools hold when we work together to promote the faith-filled and academically excellent education we all have at the core of our shared mission.
