Health Screenings

Vision, hearing and spinal screenings will be conducted by Mrs. Greenwell during the week of October 21st. These screenings are mandated by the Texas Department of Health Services.


Vision and hearing screenings will be administered to Pre-K 4, Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th graders. These screenings are done to determine distance visual acuity and possible hearing loss, as early as possible in a child's development. If your child wears any type of corrective lenses, please ensure he/she wears them to school next week. Our goal is for the students to be able to see and hear adequately, so that they may learn at an optimal level.


Spinal cord screenings will be administered to 5th, 7th and 8th graders. This screening is done to detect signs of abnormal curves of the spine at their earliest stages, so that the need for treatment can be determined. The screening procedure is a simple examination of the student's back as he/she bends at the waist. The boys and girls will be screened separately and individually in the locker room during their PE class. It is necessary for them to remove their shirts, so the back can be examined. Girls should wear halter tops, sports bra or regular bra under their uniform tops.


Parents will be notified of the results only if professional follow-up is necessary. Please contact Mrs. Greenwell, jgreenwell@corpuschristihouston.org, with any questions.

Mass with the Parish this Sunday

Please join us this Sunday, October 20th at the 11:00 a.m. Mass to celebrate with our parish community. CCCS students are asked to wear their Mass uniforms. Father Tom will be available after Mass to sign bulletins of those students in uniform. The signed bulletin grants the student a free shoe pass for Monday. Students should refrain from wearing open toed shoes, wheels on shoes, or lights on shoes.


We hope to see you there!
