To keep tuition increases modest we have three mandatory fundraisers to supplement our income. Our intention is not only to generate revenue, but also to involve the community–families, friends, neighbors, alumni–create school spirit, and have some fun! So mark your calendars and be assured that we appreciate your cooperation and support.
1) Autumn Auction–October 22, 2017 from 1 to 5 p.m. at Riccardo’s by the Bridge in Astoria
2) World’s Finest Chocolate Sale–January 26 to February 5, 2018
3) Walkathon–April 13, 2018
Other fundraisers are organized throughout the year. Your participation is optional, but we encourage you and your children to join us. These ‘funraisers’ include Bake Sales, Picture Days (Individual, Group, and Spring), the Thanksgiving Flea Market (November 26, 2018), and the Christmas Boutique.
In addition, we schedule Dress Down for Charity Days each month. This is an opportunity for the students to have some fun and do some good. Students who donate two dollars or more to the charity identified for that month can ‘dress down’ for the day and not wear the school uniform. We want the students to know that a small sacrifice on our part can benefit people whose need is much greater than ours. We will issue an announcement each month to advise you about the specific date and the charity chosen. We will also let you know how much was collected and donate the previous month.

“We are truly having a wonderful experience at Immaculate Conception School in the Nursery classroom. My son loves school so much he asked to go from the half day program to the full day program and wishes he could go to the after school program too. My family feels fortunate to be part of the Immaculate Conception family. I feel that my son is safe and loves when he leaves for school every day. His academic needs are not only met but challenged and enhanced everyday. My son has grown socially in many ways, especially with sharing and having empathy for others. We are truly blessed to be a part of this community and I would highly recommend to anyone to send their children to Immaculate Conception School.”
-Katie Zipprich, JJ’s mom
“My son has made wonderful improvements, not only academically, but also in his overall health and with his confidence. The teachers are supportive and willing to try new things and help him to learn and grow.
-Okubo-Reed, Rentaro’s mom
“I’ve had two children taught by Mrs. Coffrini and both of them love her. She has a way of making sure the kids are always happy and enjoy school.”
-Mr. & Mrs. DiChiara, Meadow’s parents
“The notion of sending one’s children to a new school is always a frightening one. More and more, it has become obvious that in our society a strong moral base is as important as that of academics. That is why my wife and I were so happy to be able to send our children to Immaculate Conception School. Our son has thrived in the Nursery Program. He is learning at an advanced rate, but more importantly, it has allowed for both his personality and spirit to shine. As a product of Catholic education, and having taught for a time in that system, I can say that there is not type of school that provides a better foundation than that of parochial. And of the parochial schools, Immaculate and its Nursery Program (and Kindergarten, of which our daughter is a part), are second to none.”
-Andrew & Michele Lodespoto, Anthony’s parents
“Our experience with Immaculate Conception School’s Nursery Program has been wonderful. Our daughter has developed a love for school and learning. Her teachers have created such a rich, stimulating and nurturing environment for the children. The music, art and gym programs have provided additional opportunities for our daughter to learn and grow. We also appreciate how clearly and consistently the school communicates with us which always make us feel fully informed.”
-Diana & George Siassos, Maria Luisa’s parents
