  • Community Service: Project Mustard Seed
    Our names are Robbie Smith, Brad Hutchison and Mark Renzi and we in the 7th grade class.  We are working on a service project collecting items that will be brought to Nicaragua to help orphaned children who have physical and mental disabilities.

    In January, a group of students from Salve Regina University are going on a mission trip to Nicaragua through a Catholic organization called, Mustard Seed Communities.  We will accept donations of personal hygiene items to be used by these children such as diapers, wipes and shampoo.

    One of the college students going on this mission will come to our school to share her experiences and show how our donated items helped the children.

    There will be a collection box in the school foyer from November 17 - 26, 2014 to collect donated items.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  • Community Service: Project Sebastian

    Dear ICCR families,

    My name is Madison Diko and I will be completing a service project from 11/12 to 11/26. The name of my project is Team Sebastian. I will be selling bracelets for $3.00 each to raise awareness for a 4 year old little boy, Sebastian Calado, who was diagnosed with T-Cell Leukemia. He lives in Pawtucket RI with his parents and his two younger brothers, ages 3 and 6 months.

    Sebastian used to be a very energetic toddler, but he seemed to be slowing down a little towards the beginning of summer 2014. When his mother found red lumps on his chest and back, she took him to the doctors immediately. His pediatrician explained that they were probably swollen lymph nodes and was placed on antibiotics. Then his mother found another red lump and rushed him to Hasbro Children's Hospital. In July, 2014, Sebastian was diagnosed with T-Cell Leukemia and started radiation and chemotherapy immediately. Sebastian is currently in a two year treatment of chemotherapy which is administered through a port in his chest. Meanwhile, Sebastian's mother and family had to take leaves of absence from both places of employment to be with their sick son. Recently, they have started fundraising efforts to assist in paying the enormous medical bills. I want to make sure that the Calado family knows that we are all helping them fight this terrible disease. I am so proud of Sebastian because he is so brave.

    During the next couple of weeks especially, please keep Sebastian and his family in your prayers! We can all support him as a big community! If you are interested in purchasing a bracelet, you may send the money in an envelope marked "Team Sebastian" to the office. Please make sure the child's  name and homeroom is clearly written and I will deliver it to their homeroom. I will also be visiting each homeroom with the bracelets for anyone who wants to purchase them that way. In addition, I will also be accepting any get well cards that you would like to make for Sebastian. You can contact me in 7A, Tech Homeroom or email me at Thank you for helping me make Sebastian's life a little brighter!

  • Little Saints 3 Year Old Program

    Immaculate Conception Catholic Regional School enthusiastically announces the Little Saints school program for three year old learners opening in the fall of 2015.  This exciting program invites our youngest friends to grow and learn in our inspiring and academically enriching community of faith.  Guided by our mission and rooted in our Catholic identity, the Little Saints school program helps shape young hearts and minds in a safe and loving environment.  Little Saints have the opportunity to discover, play and learn while building the academic foundation for success in a state-of-the-art school community.

    Twelve Little Saints will be accepted each year to join a skilled and nurturing staff of early childhood professionals.  Our little friends will engage in stimulating and exciting learning experiences that will advance them towards success as readers, thinkers, explorers and faith-filled compassionate young people.  Guided by the highest standards for early learning and development, the Little Saints integrated curriculum encompasses religion, literacy, language development, social and emotional health support, physical health and motor development, cognitive skills development, science, social studies, mathematics, Spanish language learning and creative arts.  The entire program is supported by robust hands-on and technology learning resources to stimulate and engage our youngest learners.  Little Saints who graduate from our program will have first opportunity to advance to our Pre-K program and continue on in our rigorous academic elementary and middle school programs.

    Fr. Ron and Mr. Cordeiro are excited to announce that Mrs. Annemarie Cronin will be moving from our Pre-K program at the conclusion of this school year to serve as our teacher for the Little Saints program.  Mrs. Cronin graduated from Providence College with a degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education and has taught  at St. Rocco School, in the Johnston Public Schools, Faith Nursery School and St. Mary School.  I am excited that Mrs. Cronin's nurturing spirit, high degree of competence and infectious enthusiasm and faith will serve our community in this special new role.   We are grateful that the valuable insight Mrs. Cronin gains as current Immaculate Conception Pre-K Teaching Assistant will prepare her Little Saints well in the coming years.

    Families who are interested in this program are invited to apply through our school website or contact Mr. Cordeiro at or 401-942-7245. ext 240.  In the coming weeks more information will be released about tuition and program information.  Please join us in praying for our newest program and the generation of "Little Saints" who will be welcomed into our school family.
