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.

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 will tape Mr. Ritzert to the wall on Friday. While he’s on the wall, the pre-kindergarten class will throw cream pies at him. Most importantly, we have helped many local families in need in the Christmas season.
We will have an early dismissal at 1:00 pm on Tuesday, December 6th for a teacher in-service program. The pre-school class will dismiss at 12:30 pm. There will be no afternoon bus transportation and no after-school care.
Next week we celebrate the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. The Immaculate Conception Altar Society will provide lunch for the students free of charge. Thank-you!
Mid-term reports will be issued on Friday, December 9th. The midterm is designed to let students and parents know how well the students are performing so far in the second grading period.
The Secret Santa Shop will be open next week. We thank the PTA for sponsoring the shop each year to give the students a chance to buy a special gift for their loved ones. This is just another example of the tremendous support we receive from the PTA.
Our annual Christmas program will be at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, December 14th. All students from pre-school to grade six will participate in the program.
We will participate in the Midvale Christmas parade Saturday afternoon at 2:00 pm. The parade will line-up at the Midvale school. Everyone is invited to join us.
The PTA Craft Show will be held Saturday from 10:00 to 4:00 pm. The PTA will be serving refreshments through the day. More than two dozen crafters and vendors will be at the show.
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.
Know someone who might be interested in enrolling at Immaculate Conception School? Invite them to visit us Monday, November 28. Many of the area public schools will be closed making that day an ideal time for prospective parents and students to visit and meet our staff and students.
Students from Immaculate Conception, Tuscarawas Central Catholic Elementary School, and Tuscarawas Central Catholic Jr/Sr High School gathered October 9 at Sacred Heart Church for a Mass celebrated by Bishop Campbell.
