Lost and Found

The "Lost and Found" closet is being cleaned out. All items will be placed on tables outside of the office this Friday morning. Be sure to check them out for any missing valuables.

Have You Updated Your Stewardship Hours?

Corpus Christi Catholic School relies heavily on parent volunteers to further the mission of our school. When parents are involved in school, children go further in school and the schools they go to are better (Education Week, 2004).

Volunteers are imperative to the success of every fundraiser; therefore, each family is asked to contribute a minimum of 15 hours of their time, talents, or treasures. Parents have the option of paying a fee of $20 per hour in lieu of time served. All volunteer hours should be recorded on RenWeb.

Please record your hours by this Friday. FACTS Incidental Accounts will be assessed for hours not recorded.

Thank you for your support!
