Tiger News
Happy Friday,

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

I appreciate everyone's patience and understanding this week. My most important role here is that of a protector, and I will always act with the safety of our students and staff in mind. Our students can't reach their potential if they do not feel safe. I will continue to collaborate with Father Todd, Joe Hansen, and other Bishop Chatard, Christ the King, and local officials to make decisions that guarantee the safety of everyone. Christ the King is a safe school, and I look forward to working hard to keep it that way. After Spring Break, I will be forming a safety committee to evaluate and enhance our current safety protocols. I will provide more information on this soon.

I hope you are able to make it over to the Cakes and Community Event. Bring a friend that is looking for a great parish and school.


Have a great weekend.

Peace,

Ed Seib
Principal

Daily Lenten Prayers
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.
Tiger Trot 2019 Updated
GiveSmart Site Makes It Easy To Collect Donations!
 
NEW!  CKS has partnered with GiveSmart for a new way to collect Tiger Trot donations! You can share this link as an easier way to collect online donations;  http://ckstt19.givesmart.com.

We hope this makes the process of reaching out to friends, family, neighbors, and more just a little easier. Also, here are some  tips for how to reach out to potential supporters .
 Remember, our goal this year is big; to raise $10,000 because we have more initiatives to support this year: (1) Chromebooks (2) The “Dream Big” Teacher Scholarship (3) PTO initiatives including teacher appreciation and classroom grants. There is a goal of $50 per family.  Donations, envelopes, and  pledge sheets  are due back the day of Tiger Trot, March 28 th .
Bridge to Bois de Lance
We are well on are way to our goal of raising $1000 by the end of the year. This week our students donated $421! That is enough for two students at our Haitian sister parishes to have school lunches for a hear. We will have another collection in April. Great start students!
Marketing Minute One more week for feedback
CKS Top 10 List
One simple marketing idea I picked up from an Archdiocese Principal meeting I had last week was to have a School Top 10 List that could be shared with prospective families. I am no David Letterman, so I am going to need your help and the help of the students, staff, and community.  Please use this link to share your favorite things about Christ the King .  I will add up the results and share them with you soon. I will accept answers from now until Spring Break.
Mindset Minute Updated

Safe and Sacred Reminder for all Volunteers
The Archdiocese has asked us to make sure that all adults who volunteer in the school (for field trips, playground duty, etc.) are trained and certified in Safe and Sacred. With field trips coming up soon, we wanted to remind anyone of this training.

If you have not done Safe and Sacred training, you can find it on the Archdiocese of Indianapolis website (or, click here -   https://safeandsacred-archindy.org/login/index.php ) You will need to either log in or create a new account, then watch the videos and answer the questions that go along with them. There is also a background check portion that you will be prompted to complete. 

This process (especially the background check part) can take up to two weeks to be completed, so please start this training early!  
Handwriting Club New
Our next handwriting session (and the last one of this school year!) will begin after Spring Break on Thursday April 11th, and go until May 16th.
If parents register by 3/31, they will receive a $10 early registration discount.

Box Tops Updated
And the BOX TOP CLASS  WINNER  is...
4A!!!!!!    Congratulations to Mrs. Pickering's class for turning in the most Box Tops this past quarter!The students in that class will get to enjoy a special activity or class treat.
Please continue to collect  Box Tops for Education and Tyson Project A+ Labels  for our school.
Remember, CKS earns  A QUARTER OR A DIME EVERY TIME!
You can continue to turn in Box Tops & A+ Labels at any time. Feel free to turn them in more frequently if it is easier for you. There is an expiration date on the Box Tops. We are not able to turn in or collect on any expired Box Tops. This fundraiser is one of the easiest fundraisers that makes money for our school. However, sadly, this year has been one of our least profitable. Please see the attached link if you would like to know which products currently have Box Tops on them.
