Monday Minute

Happy Monday,

It was great to see so many parents at today's Honor Roll Ceremony. We are proud of the efforts of all of our students!

I'd like to welcome Mr. William Alter to the staff. He will be covering middle school math during Mrs. Curran's maternity leave. Mr. Alter is originally from Great Britain and just finished covering a maternity leave at St. Lawrence. We are glad to have him with us.

Lenten Prayer

For our Lenten focus this year, we want to use St. Ignatius’ Examen prayer as a daily practice or discipline to enter into the desert with Jesus and by God’s grace “Rise to New Life” upon the completion of these sacred forty days.

Each student will receive an adapted form of the Examen prayer to use at home in the morning and evening. All family members are welcome to participate in this prayer process.


Have a great week.

Peace,

Ed Seib

Yearbook Orders NEW
Yearbook order forms were sent home today with the youngest and only children in each family. Please follow these guidelines when ordering your yearbook(s) this year:
  • All yearbooks must be ordered in advance this year. We will place our order based on the forms received by the due date of March 22nd.
  • Despite what the envelope says, please send in one envelope per family rather than one per child.
  • The cost per yearbook is $15.00. This can be paid either in cash or with a check made out to Christ the King Catholic School.
Please contact Miss Wagner ( kwagner@cks-indy.org ) or Miss Saint ( sstamand@cks-indy.org ) with any questions.

If you have any fidget spinners we can borrow, please put your name on it/them and bring them to Sammy Parr or Miss Wagner as soon as possible. We'll get them back to you at the end of April.

The fundraising goal is $50 per family.  Click here  if you need an electronic copy.   Donations, envelopes, and pledge sheets are due back the day of Tiger Trot, March 28 th
 
Tiger Trot is a fun event for the kids and our school, but it serves an important role in providing funds for various school initiatives. Our goal this year is to raise $10,000 which is more than we have ever raised! We have more programs to support including the following: (1) Chromebooks for ILEARN and general STEM use (2) The “Dream Big” Teacher Scholarship where teachers submit ideas for a big classroom learning projects (3) PTO initiatives throughout the entire year including class trips, teacher appreciation, and classroom grants.  Here  is what we have raised and how funds were used in the last 5 years. There will be a school-wide reward for hitting our overall $10k goal. Also, the classroom with the highest average amount raised per student will win a pizza party.
 
Online Donations:  Donations can also be made via the Orgs online payment site that is used for payments for Aftercare, Hot Lunch, etc. from now thru 3/28. Simply find Tiger Trot line, fill out the donation amount and note your child’s name, grade/classroom (ex: Jane Doe, 2B):   www.osvonlinegiving.com/4256/DirectDonate/52117
