Mark Cumba - 1987
Fondest Memories: The fun-loving, diverse, outgoing, energetic class I was in. That's pretty generic so I'll also mention the specific memory of Craig Newman breaking my nose in gym class and Mrs. Petric writing "Merry Christmas" on my nose cast for the Christmas program. Ha! I just remembered Miss Corsello falling off her chair too! The memories of ICS, particularly my classmates and teachers (and principal), truly bring a smile to my face.

Craig Ortiz - 1987
Fondest Memories: We had a relatively large class with a lot of very nice people in it. Now that I am a teacher and I think back on our class, I think it would have been a fun class to teach. However, we had a reputation for never shutting up, but I think that's just because everyone got along so well. There are so many things you learn at a school like ICS that you don't really think about until you get older -- not just academics, but also good manners, integrity, compassion, and respectfulness. Those are things that I value having learned at ICS.
