- Catholic Schools Week
2015 Catholic School Week
January 25-31, 2015
National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. The theme for the National Catholic Schools Week 2015 is "Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service." We proudly focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation.
Catholic schools offer academic excellence and faith-filled education for students nationwide. National test scores, high school graduation rates, college attendance and other data shows that Catholic schools frequently outperform schools in both the public and private sectors. Thirty-two percent of Catholic schools nationwide (include our school) have waiting lists for admission and this year alone 23 new Catholic schools opened in the United States. According to the annual NCEA report on Schools, Enrollment and Staffing, Catholic schools save the nation approximately 24 billion dollars by educating K-12 students outside the public system.
At Immaculate Conception Catholic Regional School, we are proud to be an outstanding Catholic school in the Diocese of Providence and we are excited to celebrate our continued blessings throughout this week.

Wear Your Prayer Day
In an effort to showcase our school's commitment to prayer and to support the prayers of all our community, WEAR YOUR PRAYER DAY is an optional opportunity for students to dress down during Catholic School Week if they wear a White or Gray t-shirt that has been customized by the student to showcase his/her prayer or intentions. Students can dress down as long as they wear their white or gray prayer t-shirt (it can be worn over clothes if wanted). We encourage you to make this a project for the whole family by sharing what can be written on the shirt. There is no right way to proclaim your prayer on the t-shirt. You may choose to write a formal prayer, the names of individuals or statements of prayer intentions. Throughout our day at school, as we culminate Catholic Schools Week, we will all be more aware of our own prayers and reminded to pray for the needs of others. In a special way, we will celebrate our Catholic school community and its commitment to proudly pray to our loving and merciful God. Catholic schools remain one of the last few educational communities where prayer in not only allowed, it is celebrated.
- IC Service Project: Clothing Drive
Dear Immaculate Families,
Hello, my name is Isabella Carter and I am in the seventh grade. I am part of the National Junior Honor Society ( NJHS ) and every student in NJHS has to do a community service project. For my project I am doing a clothes closet for the children at Sackett Street Elementary School in South Providence. My goal is to re-fill the clothes closet. The children at Sackett Street School do not have the proper attire for the the winter. They come into school with no winter jackets and short sleeve shirts. They wear the same clothing all the time. For my project I am collecting shoes, underwear, socks, shirts, pants, sweaters, and jackets. The clothing can be used or new. Please help out these elementary school children to have a nice and warm winter. If you have any questions you can find me in Tech Homeroom or 7A. Please bring in items to the lobby of the school starting next week.
