Congratulations to our 4th Grade Robotics Team!

On January 12th, our three CCCS Robotics teams participated in the Hogg Middle School Robotics Qualifier. Our 4th grade team, Team Rocket, not only received the 3rd Place Champions Award but also earned a spot in the East Area Championship which took place this weekend at Stafford High School. The members of Team Rocket (James Bauman, Matthew Harris, Susana Rodriguez, Annabel Tavarez, Will Winfrey) competed against 96 other teams from across the Central and East Texas area. They performed very well in their project presentation and beat their robot score from the Qualifier. This is their first year participating in the Robotics team and we are very proud of what they accomplished they season!

Spring Pictures will be Taken this Wednesday

Students may wear their favorite "spring" outfit to school on Wednesday. Each student will be photographed. Information regarding spring pictures was sent home in last Tuesday's folder.

The 8th grade class will take their group photo on Wednesday. Scholars should wear church attire. Girls are asked to wear a nice dress (no spaghetti straps) and boys are asked to wear slacks, tie and preferably a jacket.

Proofs will be sent for review before purchasing. If pictures were pre-purchased and you are not satisfied with the photos, a refund will be provided.

Corpus Christi Parish Master Plan Town Hall Meeting



At the invitation of our pastor, Fr. Tom Smithson, all parishioners and school parents are invited to attend a Town Hall Meeting to learn more about the vision for the future of Corpus Christi Parish. As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of our current church, built in 1968, we look ahead to the needs of our parish family and the best way to meet these needs through the development of a Campus-Wide Master Plan.

If you weren't able to attend one of the prior meetings, please join us on Wednesday, March 27th from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. in Prefontaine Hall. This informative session will be presented by Steve Lucchesi, Senior Principal, Ziegler Cooper Architects. Refreshments will be served. Your interest and participation are greatly appreciated!

Registration Referral Fee

We are excited to announce that thanks to generous donors, Gilbert and Dee Dee Garcia, any current Corpus Christi Catholic School family, alum or parishioner is eligible to receive a referral fee of $500 for referring a new family to Corpus Christi Catholic School who enrolls at least one child during the 2019-2020 school year!

* The referred family and their child must meet all admissions requirements for Corpus Christi Catholic School.

* The referral fee of $500 will be disbursed on December 1, 2019 considering that the new family is still enrolled in CCCS.

* Disbursements will be made by either applying to current family’s tuition or check payable to referring family.

* The referral fee applies on a new per family basis; not new, per student basis (one referral fee of $500 if family registers four children or one child).
