Important Play Day/Field Day - Volunteers Needed New

This year we are excited to do something different with our end of the year Field Day for our PreK-5th graders.(Junior High students will have something special planned as well).   We are hoping to have the parents run our elementary field day stations.  What a wonderful way of saying “thank you” to your children’s teachers by giving them some time in their classrooms to help wrap up their school year.Field day will run from 9:30-2:45.  We are hoping to have 1-2 parent volunteers at each station.  We will have 17 stations. Please see the sign up below:  Thank you so much for all you do!

Important Shadow Day Opportunities - Be a Saint for the Day!

    What makes our Catholic School so special? Well, pass the word  — now’s the time to take advantage of a day just for prospective families. You can see first-hand how daily prayer and a faith-based, exceptional academic education can enrich each child’s learning experience.
    We welcome prospective students to shadow and "Be a Saint for a Day". Prospective students in kindergarten through eighth grade can spend the day attending academic and special classes along with lunch and recess, or are welcome to just participate for an hour or two. Parents are welcome to join in the shadow as well, or just join us for a school tour.
    To schedule a visit, please contact the school at 662-3712.

On behalf of the faith and education community of Corpus Christi, welcome to our website and welcome home to your school.  Please take a walk around our website, contact us and take a walk around our school.  See the difference and believe.

"Community is at the heart of all Catholic education, not simply as a concept to be taught, but as a reality to be lived . . . Your students will learn to understand and appreciate the value of community as they experience love, trust, and loyalty in your school and educational programs, and as they learn to trust all persons as brothers and sisters created by God and redeemed by Christ."
Saint Pope John Paul II

When parents choose a Catholic School for their children, it sets their children apart as a family so committed to their children's education that they are ready to make extraordinary sacrifices. Parents, by making the sacrifice necessary to send their children to Catholic school, show them education is a high priority. Catholic schools provide a loving, loyal environment where the entire community of parents, teachers, students, and parish is committed to academic and personal success. Take a closer look at our school and our site!
