Greetings from Christ the King Lutheran School. CTK just celebrated Lutheran Schools in late January. Included in this festive week to celebrate Lutheran schools throughout the United States and the world were Movie Day, Teacher Switch Day, Mystery Reader Day, Servant Project Day, and Wacky Olympics. For clothing themes, students were able to come to school in PJs, mismatch clothing, Sunday Best, summer clothes, and CTK color clothing. Snacks were provided each day and students were even allowed to pick what lunches the wanted during the week. Special thanks to Mrs. Werschky, Mr. Deneen, Mrs. Brink, and Mrs. Yoder for coordinating the events this week. Also, thank you to Luke’s Market for their fruit donation, Mr. and Mrs. Marxhausen for making dinner for the faculty and staff (no students, this was for old people), and to those people who helped bake cookies and brownies - Mrs. Gremel, Mrs. Eimers, and whoever else was able to help as well. Also, thank you to all our staff who shared their faith with our students by praying with each class throughout the school day.
The students of CTK also began their second round of NWEA testing. Mrs. Yoder was able to program all the tests and setup the sessions for both campuses. Students again are taking these tests in lieu of the IOWA standardized tests.
On the last Friday of January, CTK Unionville invited all students and families to its gymnasium for another family event. A giant sheet was hung as families were able to fellowship with each other as CTK showed Paddington in the gym. Popcorn and drinks were provided. This was another event where parents were able to connect with their kids and have a great safe family night out. Thank you to those who helped with the projection as well as making popcorn. We appreciate the tasks you complete so we can have fun (and eat too!).
Coming up on the first Friday of the February, CTK will be honoring those students who achieved a 3.17-3.66 on the regular honor roll and those students who achieved a 3.66 or higher who have achieved the Principal’s List. This will be for the second quarter of the school year. Thank you, in advance, to Mrs. Julie Mammel for planning the food for this event. CTK is proud of the kids for doing a fine job in academics during the second quarter.
February looks to be a quiet month at CTK. I do want to thank you for your continued support of OUR school. It is my prayer that you will let your voice be heard at voters’ meetings about the direction towards which you want Christ the King to progress. Thank you to our supporters at St. Paul and Immanuel, and also at St. Peter, St. John, St. Paul, and Grace Lutheran Churches. It is paramount that we continue to work together to further HIS ministry.
I pray that you make a difference in God’s ministry this week.
In HIS Service,
David Kaiser, Principal
Christ the King Lutheran School, Sebewaing/Unionville
