National Catholic Schools Week is an annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. It starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week. Schools typically observe the week with Masses, open houses and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members. Through these events, schools focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation.
Here at Corpus Christi Catholic School, we have a full schedule of special events for our two communities, St. Francis de Sales and Our Lady of the Lake, our families, students, and faculty and staff. Please find out full calendar of events and activities below.
