Happy Friday,

It was another great week at Christ the King Catholic School!

It was great to see our students' talents on display Wednesday night at the Christmas program and their generosity on display at our Giving Tree Assembly today.

Next Friday, students will have a Christmas themed out of uniform day. They can wear a Christmas themed outfit or red and green.

Have a great weekend! I hope you are able to spend lots of time with your loved ones!

Box Top$
The school earned $267.00 for the past 3 month period. This number could easily be increased by a little extra clipping from each family. Challenge your children to ask family members, neighbors, and friends to help them collect Box Tops and Tyson Labels for Education to help out their school. 

This month there are hundreds of products featured that have Box Tops on them. Please click on the link below to see all the products available:

So as we approach the holiday season, keep your eyes out for eligible products and clip away for one of CKS's easiest fundraisers.

Thank you and Happy clipping!
