Service Projects

   Minimize

      At Immaculate Conception Grade School, our students are reminded daily of the many blessings they have received.  In turn, they understand that they are called to serve those less fortunate and in need.  Sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students are required to complete a minimum number of service hours in order to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.

     Throughout the school year, students participate in a great and varied number of service projects including bake sales, food collections, hat/scarf/mitten collections, book collections, campus cleanup day, making cards for nursing home residents, local police and fire personnel, military personnel, seminarians, putting together comfort bags for PADS guests, collecting pet products for local animal shelters, and the list goes on.  These projects are initiated both as school-wide efforts as well as well as by student council, athletics teams, classrooms, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and through the Parents' Club's 1900 Club.  In addition, our students participate each Lenten season in a parish-wide effort to assist the children of St. Mary's Mission School in Red Lake, Minnesota.  Students make small sacrifices during Lent in order to earn money for these children, living on an impoverished, closed Native American reservation.  One of our Destination Imagination team even initiated a cyber book club with the children of St. Mary's and, at the same time, raised money for their school.  

     The creativity and generosity of our students abounds and we believe they clearly understand their call to live as disciples of Jesus.
