Congratulations to CCCS' Robotics Teams!

Our robotics teams worked hard, problem solving and collaborating, all year long. Their hard work was evident in Saturday's competition.



Congratulations to the Astronomical Stargazers (Cristian Barinaga, Melinda Winston, Russel Hymel and Justice Robinson) for receiving the "Core Values" award. Congratulations also to Team Rocket (Annabel Tavarez, Susana Rodriguez, James Bauman, Matthew Harris and William Winfrey) for receiving the "3rd Place Champions" Award.


CCCS' 4th grade team, Team Rocket, qualified to participate in the regional competition, which will take place in Stafford, TX at the end of February. Congratulations Team Rocket!



Thanks to our coaches, Mr. Cross, Mr. Barinaga and Mrs. Woods for their commitment to our scholars. We are proud of our scholars and coaches!

Safe Haven Training Replaces VIRTUS Training

The CMG Safe Haven online training is replacing the VIRTUS training. The training consists of 3 vignette style training videos that are approximately 60 minutes and will include a criminal background check that must be completed.


These trainings are available in English and Spanish. Live trainings are no longer offered; all Safe Environment trainings will only be available online.


  • All new volunteers will complete the Safe Haven online training program instead of VIRTUS PGC training. The turnaround time for approval may be approximately two weeks or less.
  • All individuals must complete the training and complete a background check prior to the start of volunteer service.
  • The 5-year anniversary date is still in place, individuals who recently attended VIRTUS will not be due to complete refresher trainings until they have met their 5-year anniversary date.
  • As the 5-year anniversary date is met, individuals will need to log into CMGConnect with their previous personal VIRTUS user id and 1234 as the password. Once the individual logs into their CMGConnect account, they will be able to change their password. If they do not remember the user id, they may contact the following:

1. Bethanie O'Neal at boneal@corpuschristihouston.org

2. CMG at cmgconnect@catholicmutual.org

The following individuals below will now be required to complete Safe Haven online training as well:

1. Individuals who have never attended training.

2. Individuals who are currently due for refresher training and had not attended VIRTUS training.

3. Individuals who are currently due and have not attended VIRTUS training.

4. Individuals who are out of compliance or past due.

Tomorrow is Family Dine Out!

Please make plans to join us at Escalantes in Meyerland tomorrow evening. A portion of all sales will benefit our PSO. Students may wear their favorite CCCS shirt with blue jeans to school. We hope to see you at Escalantes!
