FROM THE PRINCIPAL
NEW Corpus Christi Catholic School is very pleased to announce that two members of our eighth grade class, Matthew Rampulla and Brendan Paul, have been named Neumann Scholars by the Connelly Foundation. Over nine hundred eighth grade students throughout the Archdiocese competed academically for forty-one scholarships. Scholars are awarded four year tuition scholarships to an Archdiocesan high school. We commend both young men and their parents for their effort, hard work and determination. Corpus Christi School is so very proud of you both!
NEW Grandparents Day was a wonderful morning at Corpus Christi School this week! We were happy to host over five hundred grandparents and special friends. The morning flew by as the students shared their time and their schoolwork with our special visitors. Thank you to all who helped to make it such a success. It would not have been possible without the efforts of the teacher planning committee and all the parents who set up, served and cleaned up for the event. Grandparents Day was a lovely way to spend the morning.
NEW Important Reminder: The weather has turned colder. Please be sure your student has the proper clothing for outdoor recess. We do not have the personnel to supervise children who are not dressed appropriately. Recess in the fresh air is an important component of the student’s afternoon. Thank you for your cooperation.

FROM THE CCS OUTREACH CORNER
In November, the Pre-K children show their gratitude by giving to others. The Pre-K families contribute food items each week in November to support Manna on Main Street
in Lansdale to help many local families. This year, Manna is in need of canned fruit, canned potatoes or yams, packages of mashed potatoes, spices, canned mushrooms, canned olives, foil, plastic wrap or Ziploc bags. Please keep these items in mind for the November 19th Canned Goods Collection.
If you would like to help us out, collection boxes will be outside of our classroom under our traditional Pre-K Family Turkey. There is also a school wide canned collection on 11/19. The Pre-K will also sponsor a Dress Down Day on November 26 to further support local families and Manna on Main Street. We are so thankful!
Our Annual Thanksgiving Meal Deal
is underway. The Sisters of St. Joseph Welcome Center is asking for our support to provide families with gift cards this year for their holiday meal. Please consider contributing. Additional information on how you can help can be found here
