Marketing Minute
Our marketing research has shown our strong school community has formed because CKS parents share their unique experiences with friends and family and encourage them to become a part of it. There’s no better way to help than by pulling together to promote our Winter Open House Sunday, January 27th from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM.
Here are a few small things you can do that will have a huge impact.

1) Volunteer at our upcoming Open House to be a tour guide who shares parental perspective with potential families as a 7th or 8th grade student gives the tour . Click here to do so.

2) Send a copy of Winter Open House Flyer to ALL of your family and friends or direct them to our Open House Webpage . If they mention your name at Open House registration, you could win a $100 Scrip gift card!   
  (Gift card to be presented to parent or parishioner with the most referrals. Winner will be drawn at random in the event of a referral tie.)

3) Place Open House yard signs in well-traveled areas in the community and//or your yard! Yard signs were passed out Monday at student pick-up. Signs are also be available at Masses this weekend or can be picked up from the school office, church office, or After Care.
4) Follow us on Social Media. Like, share, and comment on posts on Facebook, The 180 Days of Learning Blog, Twitter, and Instagram. 

5) Post a positive comment on the Great Schools website ( www.greatschools.org ) .
Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast RSVP by this Friday!
Our parents and volunteers play a vital role in the success of our school on a daily basis. The examples are plenty from opening doors at drop off, serving hot lunch, helping out in the classroom, being a room parent, running an after school club, coaching, etc.

We are humbled by your active support. As a token of our appreciation, you are invited to the first annual Volunteer Appreciation Mass and Breakfast on January 30th.

We will be recognizing all of our volunteers at our 8:30 am Mass with breakfast to follow until 11:00. You are invited to come to any part of the celebration. Please click here to RSVP by Friday, January 25th.
