Advent Books

The Catholic Church is now in the season of Advent in which we are waiting for Jesus' return. "Little Blue Books" (six minute reflections) were sent home with each family in last Tuesday's folder. Hopefully, these short passages will allow God to speak to each one of us during this holy season.

Christmas Program

Our annual Christmas program will take place on Thursday, December 14th at 6:30 p.m. in Prefontaine Hall. All elementary students (kindergarten through fifth grade), middle school drama students and band students will participate. Emails regarding costume attire are being sent today. We look forward to seeing our entire Colt Community there!

Middle School Exams

Middle school mid-term exams will take place December 17th through the 20th. Please make sure scholar arrives to school on time and refrain from scheduling any appointments during this week. Thank you for your cooperation in helping our scholars be successful.

The Fund for Corpus Christi Catholic School

MATCH CHALLENGE met - your gifts were quadrupled and tripled on #Giving Tuesday! Thanks to you and our generous match donors, Gilbert & DeeDee Garcia and Friends, $20,485 was raised in support our students through The Fund For Corpus Christi Catholic School.


The Fund Phonathon is this Thursday, December 6th. If you have already made your donation or pledge-thank you! CCCS strives for 100% participation from our school families to help close the gap and to help us attain grants and scholarships for our students. CCCS Fund chairs, Brian and Cathy Richard, so beautifully worded “It does not matter the size of the gift; all opportunities of giving are a chance to pass your love of this school and its education, along to our students.” Leadership Committee Parent Chairs will be participating in a phonathon to gain support for The Fund on this day. Thank you for all of your support!
