May Crowning Mass and Volunteer Appreciation this Friday

We would like to thank each of you for all you have done for our students this year. Please join us this Friday morning for our annual May Crowning Mass and Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast.

It is a Catholic tradition to honor Mary, our Mother, during the month of May by placing on her statue a crown of flowers. Each student is asked to bring a single flower to Mass to set at the feet of Mary as way of thanking her for bringing our Savior into the world. Two eighth grader scholars are chosen to have the honor of crowning Mary. We hope you are able to join us for this devotional ceremony, which is a favorite tradition at Corpus Christi.

Spring Fling News

A big THANK YOU to all of CCCS’s wonderful Spring Fling volunteers who worked game booths, counted raffle tickets, passed out prizes and assisted with activities! You make the big difference!

Spring Fling Raffle ticket sales for CCCS at last count is $15,987. Thank you for selling raffle tickets!

Last week’s weekly prize drawing winners are: Thursday- Cristina Boone (5th) $20 Academy gift card and Vidalael Granados (5th) $20 Chick-fil-A gift card. Friday-James Bauman (4th) t-shirt and Gemma Garza (3rd) $20 Cinemark gift card.

Congratulations to Zoe Meuser for selling the highest number of raffle tickets ($480) winning a $100 Amazon gift card and Zoe Bush, second highest in raffle sales ($464) winning a custom cake valued at $100.

Did you know...that 4th grade won the cake pop basket for selling the most raffle tickets! Great job!

THANK YOU to all who sold raffle tickets! The CCCS community supports the parish's Spring Fling raffle with the sale of raffle tickets. A portion of the proceeds benefit our students by providing operating dollars to the school. This fundraising helps to bridge the gap between tuition fees and the actual cost to educate each student.

3rd, 4th & 5th Graders Run the City!

CCCS 3rd, 4th and 5th graders participated in Junior Achievement's BizTown, a simulated town, which allowed the students to operate banks, manage restaurants, write checks, and vote for Mayor! The program helps students connect the dots between what they learn in school and the real world.

Concepts covered include: Advertising, Business management, Careers, Check register, Circular flow, Economics, Financial Institutions, Free enterprise, Goods and services, Interests and skills, Jobs, Operating costs, Payment methods, Performance evaluation, Personal finance, Quality business, Resources (natural, human and capital), Running a business, Scarcity, and Soft Skills.

The students did a fantastic job in their roles!
