Welcome to Immaculate Conception School. In the proud tradition of the St. Mary Blue Wave, Immaculate Conception offers classes from pre-school to grade six in a safe, family oriented, and Christ centered atmosphere.
The mission of Immaculate Conception School is to continue the tradition of providing a challenging academic program integrated with Catholic teaching, empowering students to nurture their God-given abilities to follow Jesus' example of prayer, faith, service, and love.
Immaculate Conception is one of three Catholic Schools in Tuscarawas County.

Several students from Immaculate Conception and TCCES recently appeared on WDNP Radio in Dover on the Sturday morning show with Steve Shumaker. They did a great job representing Immaculate Conception!
Please make plans to join us Sunday, January 22 for our annual Open House Celebration. We’ll have a spaghetti dinner, book fair, and building tours. The open house will mark the start of registration for the 2017-18 school year. If you know someone who might be interested in enrolling at Immaculate Conception School, invite them to visit us and see first-hand the advantages of an Immaculate Conception education. The positive words of our parents are one of our greatest selling tools!
We need dessert donations for the Open House spaghetti dinner. Donations may be dropped off at the school Friday, January 20 or Sunday morning before the dinner. Thank you!!!
We encourage all families to register early for next school year. Registration begins with the Open House on January 22. Our pre-school and pre-kindergarten classes usually fill up very quickly. After February 15, there will be a small registration fee ($25) for families registering students in grades kindergarten through grade six.
Tuition rates for next school year will be established in February, but it’s not too early to apply for assistance. There’s a flyer in the envelope with more details. We will once again participate in the EdChoice Expansion Scholarship Program. This income based scholarship will be available next year to families with students entering kindergarten, first, second, third and fourth grades.
The end of the second grading period is January 20th. Report Cards and Life Skill Achievement Reports will be issued the following week.
There will be no school Monday, January 16, Martin Luther King Day.
The next PTA meeting is scheduled for January 17th at 6:00 pm. All are invited to participate.
We thank Connie Vincent for her many years of service to Immaculate Conception School. Miss Connie’s last day of work in the cafeteria was December 16. She has been a dedicated employee whose always been willing to do whatever it takes to help the school. She will continue to be an active member of the parish and we wish her the best of luck! Students presented her with cards and gifts on her last day of work.
With Miss Connie no longer in the cafeteria, we are looking for volunteers to help serve the daily lunch. If you can help out during the hours of 10:45 to 11:45 am, please call Linda Williams at 740-922-3539.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to our Blue Wave Service Team food and toy drive to benefit Share-A-Christmas. We collected more than 700 food items and 500 toys. As a result, the fourth grade class was rewarded with a chance to tape Mr. Ritzert to the wall. While taped up, the pre-kindergarten class will threw cream pies at him. Most importantly, we helped many local families in need in the Christmas season.
Congratulations to Immaculate Conception Pre-S/Pre-K teacher Ronna Coventry. Ronna received the prestigious Lucille Nussdorfer Woman of the the Year award! Ronna was recognized for her many community service projects, especially her work teaching her young students about the importance of service to others.
