Immaculate Conception Catholic School celebrated Catholic Schools Week on Jan. 28 – Feb. 3 with a variety of fun events, including a Family Fun Concert on the evening of Jan. 30. The concert featured musician, Kevin Devine, who has entertained children at over 4,000 concerts. He describes his shows as “participatory children’s music.”

“I’m not singing for them. I’m singing with them,” Devine said. “I went to a school just like this when I was young, so this is fun.”

The school planned fun events for the kids on every day of Catholic Schools Week. On Monday, the school celebrated the community by hosting a panel discussion featuring Port Clinton Mayor Mike Snider; Port Clinton Fire & Rescue Capt., Brian Gutman; and the Diocese of Toledo’s Senior Director of Catholic Education, Matt Daniels.

“The kids got to ask questions about their jobs,” said Immaculate Conception School Marketing Director, Jen Roberts.

On Tuesday, the school celebrated its students with a doughnut party and a no-homework night, in addition to the concert. Other events throughout the week included a 50s-themed sock hop and a students-against-staff trivia game.

“It was a whole week of fun and crazy stuff,” Roberts said.

The school was grateful to spend the week celebrating the privilege of providing local children with a faith-based education.

“We believe that Catholic education teaches the whole child. It’s a physical, spiritual and emotional education,” Roberts said. “We’re blessed to be able to teach them about Jesus. We pray with them.”

Growing up in a small, Catholic school creates the opportunity for students of all ages to bond.

“The sixth graders spend time with the first graders. They get to know each other through the years and create friendships,” Roberts said. “We’re a tight-knit community.”
