Dear Parents and Families,

We continue our school-wide theme of exploring mindfulness as presented in the book I Am Peace. Mrs. Barbieri and Mrs. Goodwin presented to the faculty this month’s topic: kindness.

Kindness is defined as the quality of being friendly, generous and considerate. It is an

understanding of having a connection, feeling empathy, and recognizing the dignity of others. 

It counterbalances hate in the world, reveals our trust to others, and reminds us of the value of others. Kindness is one of the most powerful tools we must help create to maintain healthy and happy lives. It is such a simple concept that fills us with optimism and empathy as well as helps us to form positive connections with others. It creates a warm, relaxed and supportive environment. Kindness helps to boost self-esteem and gives feel-good emotions to the giver, the receiver and

even to onlookers. The power of kindness has a rippling out effect that touches the lives of many. Whether it is giving or receiving a compliment, being helped or helping someone with a task, or giving someone or getting a gift, kindness makes us, and others feel good. Where there is kindness there is peace. Where there is peace there is mindfulness.

There are many ways to teach children how to be kind and spread kindness, but it must be intentional. We can’t just cross our fingers and hope it happens.  We cannot expect our children to know kindness without teaching them through modeling kind words, being generous to others, showing consideration, and sharing ideas for simple acts of kindness. We can also teach them by reading them books that have moral messages of being kind, friendly, considerate and generous. As parents we can create an environment filled with kindness, so they can take that kindness and spread it to others. 

Mrs. Barbieri and Mrs. Goodwin’s ideas exemplify our commitment to enhance your child’s spiritual and intellectual development. Our goal is to inspire every child to reach his/her fullest ability.


Mrs. Ann T. Sarpu

Family Fun Night: Friday, April 19th

Yard Goats Game: Date coming soon.

Dear Parents/ Guardians,

Just a quick reminder for those entering 7th grade and kindergarten here this Fall 2024: If your child is entering 7th grade for Fall 2024, a Physical must be done prior to the start of school. This includes height, weight, vision, hearing, hemoglobin as well as meningitis and TDAP immunizations. (Your child’s doctor may also discuss HPV vaccination but that continues to be voluntary at present). If your child has had a physical after September 4th, 2023, or will have one this year, Please send it to me as soon as you can and it will count for your child.

If your child is entering Kindergarten for Fall 2024, a Physical must be done prior to the start of school. This must be done on the Blue physical form and include review of systems, height, weight, vision and hearing screenings, a hemoglobin and updated DTAP, Polio, varicella and MMR. If your child has had a Physical after September 4, 2024 or is scheduled for one this year, this will count for kindergarten and you can send it to me as soon as it is done.

Thank you,

Mrs. Cowan RN BS

Corpus Christi School Nurse

Stuffed Animals are not permitted in the School due to sanitary issues. Children can easily transmit germs and potentially lice to others and we try to minimize the point of contact to keep the school and students healthy. Family pictures are encouraged if separation anxiety is an issue.


No child is allowed to bring to school any unauthorized medications into the school without a Doctor’s order. This includes over the counter medications such as Tylenol, Vitamins, Lactaid or Probiotics. All medications must be brought to the Nurse’s office in the original container with a Doctor’s order for distribution. No child is to carry any type of medication unless this is ordered by the Doctor and must be given in the Nurse’s Office unless otherwise specified on the order. Any student caught with an unidentifiable medication will be brought to the Principal and if there is cause for concern such as suspected drug use, consequences can occur that will be up to the Principal and may include Law enforcement. We have seen an increase in Drug usage in our communities and within schools and we do not want to impact the safety of Corpus Christi School and our students. Be assured illegal drug use has not occurred in Corpus Christi School but there is a need for me to be proactive at this time. It is with this knowledge that I alert parents to the above Policy to keep our School Safe.

Thank you,

Sue Cowan RN BS

Corpus Christi School Nurse
