Tiger News
Happy Friday,

It has been another great week at Christ the King Catholic School!

There were a couple of historic firsts that have occured or been discussed at Morning Assembly this week.

  • Our recently formed 5th/6th Soccer Team won their first ever game earlier this week! This was made possible by the coaches and the advocacy for the creation of the team by the Smith family. I am looking forward to hearing about more victories soon!
  • The 6th graders planned and implemented the first ever preschool field trip to the Sts. Isidore & Maria Garden. This will hopefully be the first of many student-led trips that highlight our students' leadership qualities as well as our ever growing outdoor education program. If you know of a preschool that would be interested in visiting in the Spring or Fall, please let me know.
  • The 2nd graders had the first all-day First Communion Retreat led by Father Todd, Mrs. Fillenwarth, and Mrs. Schubert.
  • During Morning Assembly, we discussed the announcement of the first ever image of a black hole. We talked about how the scientists involved in this breakthrough had to collaborate, solve problems, be patient, and display perseverance. I mentioned that these are all qualities that we cultivate here at Christ the King!

Norwaldo Construction Project Update
I have been in contact with the project managers, and they will not start this project for at least another two weeks. They reassured me that there will be some form of access to Norwaldo. I will continue to keep you up to date and share any alternate drop off and pick up procedures when a definitive start date has been established.

Security Update
The suspect involved in the security situation from Bishop Chatard is currently in jail after having his bond revoked. There will continue to be a police presence at both Bishop Chatard and Christ the King campuses. We will be locking the doors at school Masses. Our IT Coordinator, Ryan Ricci, will be sitting out in the atrium to welcome anyone who is running late.

2019-2020 Tuition Rates
A huge thank you goes out to Hillary Rusbasan, Patty Holtz, the School Commission, Parish Finance Council, and Parish Council for their support in the creation and approval of our budget for next year. Click here to view the approved tuition rates.

Finally, we just passed 600 combined posts between the 90 Days of Learning and the 180 Days of Learning Blogs . Check it out, especially if you haven't read it in awhile!

I am looking forward to celebrating Holy Week with the students and staff. Have a great weekend. I hope everyone his able to spend lots of time together.


Peace,

Ed Seib
Principal

Record Setting Tiger Trot 2019! Updated
The annual Tiger Trot walk-a-thon was once again a success this year. Thank you to all students, parents, family, and friends who stepped up to make this a record-setting event! We raised over $9,600 compared to $7,600 last year and $6,300 in 2017 . Our students enjoyed a fantastic day of fun and excitement and, in the process, raised funds to support 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. The class that raised the most per student is still being determined based on matching donations from various sources. 
 
Special thanks to the following volunteers: Shiloh O’Rourke (Our Master of Ceremonies), Father Todd (The Mystery Tiger), Jill & Sean Chesebrough (First Aid Station) and all of the following volunteers: Amelia Rising-Moore, Karrie Pacheco, Matthew Hooker, Kathryn Graf, Sara Randolph, Carolyn Wamsley, Leigh Miller, Erin Bischoff, Jill Render, Abby Jackson, Kellie Warnecke, Natalie Sutton, Ramla Hampton, Keith Carroll, Alania McSherry, Molly Matchett, Jessie Corbin-Mahaney, and Kathy Rembusch.
 
We would also like to thank other supports: Indianapolis Fruits for in-kind donations of bananas, Mark Miller of Markey's Rental & Staging for discounted audio equipment and set-up, Officer Jeremy Messer for security, and Tom Mahaney from Bishop Chatard for street barricades. We also could not do this event without the support of Principal Seib, Assistant Principal Wenclewicz, Hillary Rusbasan, Dave Thompson, Jen Priser, Jeff Harper, and the entire staff of Christ The King.

Marketing Minute Updated
Do you know someone looking for a school and parish home? Send this quote their way!

After moving to Indianapolis with our first baby, we spent a couple of years looking into the many school choices around us on the northside of the city. Christ the King stood out as a school that has high academic standards but also prioritizes creating a supportive community and cultivating thoughtful leadership. Given how much time our kids will be spending at their school, we knew it was important to choose a place that not only challenged them intellectually but helped them mature as a confident and kind person.

Carolyn Wamsley, Kindergarten parent

Summer Tennis New
The National Junior Tennis & Learning (NJTL) of Indianapolis is a local 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose goal is to introduce the lifetime sport of tennis, in an affordable way, to as many youth as possible -- especially those who might not ordinarily have the opportunity to participate.

In cooperation with the City of Indianapolis, Indy Parks, and area schools, NJTL will operate a six-week recreational tennis program for youth at 14 locations throughout Marion County. As noted on the informational flyer, we are located at sites in your area.
