Fourth Grade Wax Museum

2023 wax museum
Our Fourth graders did an OUTSTANDING job last week presenting their chosen Ohioan, scientist, or inventor. The students had to research, write, and prepare a short speech about their person. The students were extremely well prepared and looked so believable as they were waiting for spectators to come press their button which begins their speech.

As we welcome new families to Immaculate Conception, we are in need of current families to welcome and be a point of contact for through the HASA Mentor Program. The need is great this year, particularly in the junior high grades, with the closing of St. Anthony school. Please help them transition to our community. Once you are matched with a family, we will provide you with contact information and some suggested points to highlight about upcoming activities, etc. Signup at: Immaculate Conception HASA: Immaculate Conception Mentor Families ( Questions?
