First Reconciliation Tonight

Tonight is a special night for students in the second grade. They will be receiving the sacrament of their First Reconciliation. During this sacrament, the children will experience God's limitless compassion. In receiving this compassion, students are invited to show this same compassion to others. In other words, "it is in pardoning that we are pardoned."

Please take a moment to say a special prayer for the children who will be receiving this sacrament tonight.

COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic

We are gauging interest in a COVID-19 vaccine clinic for students. This would take place at school after the Christmas Break. Participation in the vaccine clinic would be voluntary. Currently, the health department is asking for a minimum number of participants to hold a clinic. Please click the survey button below to express if you would or would not be interested in a vaccine clinic at school.

No personal information is collected for this survey.

Thanksgiving Prayer Service

The Student Leadership Council's Thanksgiving Prayer service will be at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 23. This will be held in the church. Due to the limited seating, the prayer service will be live-streamed on the parish website. You can go directly to the live-steam page by clicking here.

Students for Peace and Justice

The Immaculate Conception Students for Peace and Justice, (SPJ) was created to give seventh- and eighth-grade students who are interested in peace and justice work the opportunity to learn and implement specific principles of Catholic Social Teaching in the school community and beyond.

While promoting peace and justice are tenets of Catholicism introduced by Jesus Christ and his disciples, SPJ will use this opportunity to be servant leaders who spread the Word through actions and activities designed to create a community of peacemakers who will stand up for the dignity and worth of all and lead other young people on the path to becoming future Missionary Disciples.

Pictured is Sophia Reing-Hurley explaining the SPJ Group and Hunger/Homelessness Week to the entire school on the morning announcements.

Recycling Club

Immaculate Conception School now has a recycling club! Over forty junior high students have volunteered to help collect and properly recycle materials in our school. Immaculate Conception is partnering with SWACO and is now part of the School Recycling Champion Program. The recycling club members will be a key component of educating and implementing best practice recycling in our school this year and in the future. We are proud that the students and staff at Immaculate Conception are eager to do their part to care for our environment. Look for new and improved recycling evidence in our school this year!
