Monday Minute
Happy Last Monday of the School Year,

It is hard to believe that this is the last Monday Minute of the year. I am looking forward to celebrating the achievements of our 5th-8th graders tonight and then celebrating with the Class of 2019 on Wednesday. Don't forget about the Sports Banquet on Thursday and then it all ends on Friday.

Several teachers will be available to provide tutoring free of charge through Title I Funding. If you are interested, please fill out this form, and I will send you the sign up schedule.

Garden Protectors Needed
If you are interested in helping out at the school garden this summer, please sign up using this sheet . I will provide you with directions on how to care for the garden.

Have a great week.

All students will complete 5 environmentally-focused activities between May 6th and May 24th. The challenges will be a combination of school, classroom, and family activities. Each child will receive a checklist to document their completion.  Check out more details and suggestions on how you can participate here. Let me know if you have any questions.

Lost and Found is located on the Cafeteria/AfterCare level. There are three racks; be sure to look through all of them. Any items left at the end of the year will be donated to Goodwill.
Student Medication  Reminder
The school year is quickly winding down! Please pick up any medications from the Nursing Office by the end of the school year.  This includes  any  prescription  and nonprescription  medications, as well as  inhalers and epipens . The last day for medication pick-up will be Friday, June 7th . Anything that is  not picked up  by then will be  disposed of .
Mentor Families  Still Needed
We are seeking current CKS families who are willing to mentor incoming families to our school this upcoming school year. New families will be met with many new faces and much information along the way. Mentor families help to familiarize these new families with the school and its procedures, and serve as a liaison between the school, the parish, and new families. If you and your family would like to support this ministry, we ask that you review the notes in the link below to understand what is asked of you to ensure each new family feels welcome and supported.

If you and your family are interested in serving as part of this important ministry, please email Mrs. Andie Silvey at If you have been a menor family in the past, we still ask you to let us know if you want to do this each year.
CKS Summer Social
The Parish's biggest party is coming up soon. Below are a few reminders and ways you can help!

1) Proud Parent sponsorship opportunities as well as the opportunities for Parents to bring us business sponsors for Summer Social -   

2) Raffle ticket selling reminder

3) Event volunteer sign up -  

Calling Bakers of all ages

I am sending this email to recruit more help for the annual Summer Social. I am in charge of the Sweet Shop. Over the years, we have gotten homemade goodies through the parish service league and thought that, this year, I would invite the school families to help as well. Our booth is 100% profit for the school and parish, since the sweets are donated. We are looking for cookies, brownies, cakes, pies, or whatever sweets you are willing to donate.  
This year the Summer Social is on Friday, June 21st and Saturday, the 22nd. There is a sign up genius in place if you would like to sign up that way, however you can just drop things off at Touhy Hall on June 21st without registering. You can ask for me or Dave and Katie Thompson and we will get your delicious sweets to where they need to go! 
As always, Christ the King is a wonderful Parish and we appreciate your consideration and all your help!
