Greetings from Christ the King Lutheran School. I would like to thank all those people who came to the first music concert last Sunday. Students from CTK music classes, as well as vocal and handbell choirs performed to glorify God. There were even some recorder and organ students who performed too. A small offering was collected which will help defer cost of the MusicFest fees for the choirs that will be attending the competition at Valley Lutheran High School this year. Thanks again for your support.
“IT” is officially on! You may be wondering what “IT” is? The AR Challenge began on Monday, January 29th. CTK has been pitted against Lutheran schools nationwide to read as many books as possible. But that is not what they measure. Students then have to take AR tests and mark the correct answers. This challenge will be taking place through early March.
On Wednesday evening, Christ the King Athletics held its Parent Night recognizing those 8th grade parents who have supported their athletes through the A-Team Basketball Season. Those parents include: Mr. and Mrs. George Eurich, Mr. and Mrs. David Kaiser, Mr. and Mrs. Eric Ballard, Mr. and Mrs. Ryan Kuhl, Mr. and Mrs. Brian Maust, Mr. and Mrs. Ben Prime, and Mr. and Mrs. Marc Reinhardt. Thank you parents for your wonderful support of CTK and our programs over the years your babies have been here with us.
The 7th Grade students had their chance to be a servants this past Thursday. After chapel, Ms. Canfield and her crew traveled to Bay City where they learned about the Good Samaritan Rescue Mission. Following a small presentation, they were put to work at the mission. This is the second time CTK has been to GSRM this year. Eighth grade helped out earlier this year. The students did a great job.
On Friday, CTK held its 2nd quarter Honor Roll Breakfast for students in grades 5-8. Of course great food was consumed while trying to digest some really bad jokes provided by me. Here is the listing of students and the honors they achieved for the 2017-2018 CTK Honor Roll, Second Quarter:

CTK students were given the task of making some encouragement cards for a servant project during Lutheran Schools Week. I know that cards have been delivered to Vada Villa Adult Foster Care and also to Medallion Village. Cards will also be sent to a school in Arizona which has ties to OUR CTK family. Finally, the students in grades 2-4 will send their encouragement cards to the shut-ins of St. Paul and Immanuel before Valentine’s Day.
If you know of a family who you feel would be a blessing to Christ the King Lutheran School and would enjoy the benefits of a Lutheran school education, I would love for you to give them my name and contact information (989-577-9432). I would love to take some time to talk with them about the ways that Christ the King has been blessed by our wonderful congregations.
In HIS Service,
David Kaiser, Principal
