Dear Parents,

Thanking God should be part of our daily lives. It is also good to tell God about worries and concerns: about jobs, relationships, family, health, whatever comes to mind. Sharing those thoughts with God will often help to lessen the burdens we carry. Take time -- lots of it -- each day to talk to God in prayer. If you spend time with family members or friends, engage them in prayer with you, and listen to how they share their joys/concerns/thanks with God.

As we say good-bye to this academic year, I want to THANK YOU! I am grateful to you for entrusting your children with us each day. Your children have grown both academically and spiritually. I am very proud of each of them as I am sure you are as well!!

Have a safe and enjoyable summer!

Peace,
Mrs. Ann T. Sarpu

Summer Prayer

Creator of all, thank You for summer!
Thank You for the warmth of the sun
and the increased daylight.
Thank You for the beauty I see all
around me and for the opportunity to
be outside and enjoy Your creation.
Thank You for the increased time I
have to be with my friends and family,
and for the more casual pace of the summer season.

Draw me closer to You this summer.
Teach me how I can pray no matter
where I am or what I am doing.
Warm my soul with the awareness of
Your presence, and light my path with
Your Word and Counsel.
As I enjoy Your creation, create in me
a pure heart and a hunger and a thirst for You.

Amen

Thank you!

"I assure you, as often as you did it for one of my least brothers you did it for me." - Matthew 25:40

BASKETBALL TRAINING AND TACTICS

SUMMER CLINICS AT CORPUS CHRISTI SCHOOL
JULY 29-AUGUST 1 ST  
9:00AM TO 2:00PM

Reminders from the Nurse :

All children entering Kindergarten or 7 th grade this fall; MUST have an updated School Physical (Dated after August 28, 2018); prior to the start of school per State Law. All Physicals must include current immunizations. Please get these in to me as soon as possible.

Please remember to pick up your child’s medication by the last day of school. State Law prohibits medication to be “held in the school” over the summer in the nurse’s office if a nurse is not in the building. Please come by in person as medication CANNOT go home in a child’s backpack. Any medication that is not picked up by the last day will have to be discarded per State policy.

Thank you;
