The purpose of the Commission is to serve as an advisory board responsible for formulating policies governing operations of the Corpus Christi Catholic School.  The Commission seeks to create a better understanding of Catholic education within the Parishes of Holy Trinity Church and St. Patrick Church of Merna and the community. 

The commission makes recommendations about policies relating to the planning, building, operating and maintenance of the facilities and equipment of Corpus Christi Catholic School.  It also makes recommendations for the annual budget, reviews personnel policies and determines how best to disperse information to parishes.

Meetings are held the second Tuesday of every month. While not open to the public, minutes may be published on our school website.
Committee Members: Three parish representatives from each of the parishes and three at-large representatives are voting members of the Commission serving three-year terms.  Representatives are appointed by the Pastor of Holy Trinity Parish in consultation with the Pastor of St. Patrick Church of Merna.

You ARE a member of School Club

Every parent with a child enrolled in the school is a School Club member. School Club does a great deal for our students, faculty, and staff throughout the year. The primary purpose of School Club is enriching the lives of our children by offering different enrichment programs. These programs are made possible by the volunteer efforts of parents and are also funded by the annual Track-A-Thon fundraiser each fall. In addition, School Club also offers financial support for our school.

School Club oversees a mentoring program for new families to our school. Once your child has been enrolled, a current school family will contact you and assist your family with questions you may have now and throughout the school year.

To continue to be a successful organization, School Club depends on dedicated volunteers such as you. There are many opportunities to become involved or volunteer.

Fall Festival As a celebration of the season, this committee organizes the entire event. This year families were invited to enjoy dinner. Crafts and games were available for the children.

Head Room ParentsThere are head room parents for both buildings. They coordinate the room parent responsibilities, and organize some goodies for the teachers throughout the year.

Hospitality - The hospitability committee is responsible for the beginning and end of year tailgates. They also organize the teacher appreciation breakfast to kick off the year.

Lunch Room Volunteers for the lunch room each day are recruited through this committee.

Mentor This program pairs new families with established families to provide information and support as they learn the ins and outs of the school.

ProgramsMany of the outstanding assemblies the children benefit from are the work of this committee.

Scouts – The Girl Scout and Boy Scout programs are supported by this committee.

Fundraising Committees

Market Day Each month the coordinators of this program organizes the orders and distributes the goods. Pie sales in the month of November have resulted in the direct purchase of a Smart Board the past few years.

Meet and Eats Working with various venues in the area, this committee organizes opportunities for the school club to receive a percentage of the profit from the dining of our families.

Scrip –Scrip is gift certificates from national and local retailers. These retailers agree to sell their gift certificates to non-profit organizations like ours at a discount. The school then sells those certificates at face value, resulting in a profit for our school and church.

Track-a-thon – As our biggest fundraising effort, this committee has the important task of organizing and running this fun event.
