Moments of Grace and Gratitude - September 27th

posted Oct 2, 2020, 8:34 AM by Sheri Stashick

September 27, 2020.


Dear Corpus Christi Families,


I hope this memo finds you and your family safe and well. As we continue to journey through the challenges of dealing with Covid-19 in our school community, I want to thank you for your support, your trust and your encouragement. 


Under the direction of Ottawa Public Health case management, we have worked extremely hard to provide information and detail in order that OPH could determine levels of risk. 


Any staff and students who were found to be low-risk contacts were sent a letter on Friday evening from OPH and are able to return tomorrow, providing that they do not have symptoms of Covid-19 and have been symptom-free for 24 hours.


This week, all high-risk contacts (staff and students) remain at home isolating.  We continue to communicate with OPH and realize the tremendous work they are doing during these challenging times. 

OPH is available to support parent inquiries.  If you have any further questions you can call the Ottawa Public Health Information Centre at (613) 580-6744 to speak to a public health nurse.

Synchronous Online Learning during Isolation

We have been directed by the Ministry to follow a teaching model that allows teachers/students to pivot between in-person and online synchronous instruction, easily, when necessary.  All classes that are isolating will be engaged in daily synchronous instruction.  Asynchronous instruction will also be provided through Hapara Workspace.  All classes from K-12 in the OCSB are using the Hapara Workspace platform.  Here is a quick video for parents to explain how to access a student’s Hapara Workspace.  If you have any questions please contact your child’s teacher.  

Orange Shirt Day @ Corpus Christi - Wednesday, September 30th









Orange Shirt Day is observed each September 30th to honour Residential School Survivors, those who did not survive and their descendants.  It is an opportunity for schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope.


The origin of Orange Shirt Day is based on Phyllis Webstad’s story of having her new orange shirt that her grandmother bought her taken away on her first day at Residential School.  It was replaced by the school uniform. She never saw her shiny orange shirt again. Her experience of having her orange shirt taken has become symbolic of all that was taken from Indigenous peoples as a result of Indian Residential Schools and the reason we wear orange on September 30. 


Staff and students will wear ORANGE on Wednesday. For further information about Orange Shirt Day, you can check out this website: http://www.orangeshirtday.org/.

Moments of Grace and Gratitude in a Pandemic

I wanted to share this article with you.  It was written by Jan Bentham. She is our retired Religion Coordinator( Ottawa Catholic School Board).  Definitely reminds us of the beauty of grace and the power of gratitude.  Enjoy!  Moments of Grace and Gratitude in a Pandemic

Fancy Socks for Terry Fox / Orange Shirt Day

posted Sep 26, 2020, 7:38 PM by Sheri Stashick


Dear Corpus Christi Families,


I hope this memo finds you and your family safe and well. Corpus Christi was challenged this past weekend by a confirmed case of Covid-19 in our school community.  Since then, with Ottawa Public Health, we have worked extremely hard to ensure that all who may have come in contact with the virus are at home isolating. We continue to be patient as we await information and answers.   We continue to communicate with OPH and realize the tremendous work they are doing during these challenging times. 


Special mention that in addition to the sanitization protocols in place, the entire school was able to undergo an additional deep sanitize on Monday of this week.  We are thankful for our custodial staff for ensuring that this occurred.


Our Primary Division has continued to learn here at school.  We continue to practice diligent hand-washing, sanitization and social distancing with increased awareness.  Staff and students have been excellent in ensuring that we all protect each other as best as we can.  Visors for students are now available at the office.  If you would like your child to wear a visor, please let their classroom teacher know.

OPH is available to support parent inquiries.  If you have any further questions you can call the Ottawa Public Health Information Centre at (613) 580-6744 to speak to a public health nurse.


Primary (K-3) Fancy Socks for Terry Fox @ Corpus Christi - Friday, September 25th

Tomorrow, our school will be holding a Primary Terry Fox walk.  All students are encouraged to wear their Fancy Socks for the walk.  This year the walk will be a little different.  In their cohorts, students will go on a community neighbourhood walk.  Each cohort will be given a designated time slot.  Due to the circumstances, the walk will not require volunteers.  We are asking for a small donation of $2.00 (aka - A Toonie for Terry) towards the Terry Fox Foundation.  This donation can be made directly to  ONLINE DONATION.


*Please note that we will be picking a date in the near future for our Junior (4-6) Fancy Socks for Terry Fox.  We want to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to participate in this very worthy event!





Orange Shirt Day @ Corpus Christi - Wednesday, September 30th

September 30th marks Orange Shirt Day in Canada.  Orange Shirt Day is an initiative “to commemorate the residential school experience, to witness and honour the healing journey of the survivors and their families, and to commit to the ongoing process of reconciliation.”  For further information about Orange Shirt Day, you can check out this website: http://www.orangeshirtday.org/.  



Thanks for all of your ongoing support and cooperation.  Please Be Well.  #WeAreCorpusChristi
