Special Person’s Day and All Saints’ Day

We had a wonderful day celebrating the special people in our lives and then celebrating the saints as well this afternoon! As Fr. Kyle said in Mass this morning, our one job while we are here is to become saints- what a great reminder to our little people that sainthood is possible for everyone, not just special people from hundreds of years ago!

Thank you to all of you who helped put the party together!


Contest Opportunity – From Mrs. Koster and the Main Office

The Corpus Christi Chronicle is looking for some assistance.  In the past, the principal has always included a message/update to our school family.  This year is no different.  We are looking for a new title for Mrs. Liniewski’s message to our community.
If you have some fun ideas – kindly put them on a piece of paper and turn into the office.  Don’t forget to put your name and grade on the entry before handing in.
It could be a snazzy title – or picture, or both.
Deadline is:  Friday, November 15, 2019, at 3:00 pm.
Winner:  a surprise  🙂
