The mission of Corpus Christi Catholic School is to nurture every child by providing the opportunities to grow in faith, achieve academic success, and serve others as disciples of Jesus
May 13, 2019
Dear Parents, 

It is hard to believe how quickly the school year has passed. As we come to the end of the year, I would like to thank you for your trust, faith, and commitment to the mission of Corpus Christi Catholic School. We have had an amazing school year, and I know that is due to the wonderful parents we have who unite with us as partners in education. 

Bible Verse of the Month
Our Bible verse focus for the month of May is Proverbs 3:6

“In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight.” 

Our prayer focus is the Hail Mary :
 Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.
Teacher Appreciation Week
We have such wonderful teachers and I know they surely felt appreciated last week during National Teacher Appreciation Week. Thank you so much to all of our wonderful parents who helped make it a memorable week! 
Summer Packet and Booklist
Our summer packet with information including book, supplies, and uniform information will be shared early next week. For those of you looking to exchange textbooks, please note that we have a new math adoption next year. These will continue to be consumable books in grades K-5, and also will include a consumable math text in grades 6-8 (with the exception of Algebra.) The current math hardback textbooks in grades 6-8 and the Algebra textbook will no longer be used. Please do not sell or purchase them. Again, the entire booklist will be shared in our summer packet next week.

Please join us for a special celebration honoring the 60th Anniversary of our Church and School this Sunday from noon - 2 p.m. Food will be provided and there will be fun games.
