Frozen blessings to you from Christ the King Lutheran School. Activities are beginning to pick up steam at CTK this month. Students were SO excited to come back to school. A few days to get acclimated into the school again before we all continue to push forward with the school year. There are a few activities which I would like to invite you to attend. Mr. Bunke will be hosting his annual Geography Bee for the Sebewaing Campus on Wednesday, Jan. 10th, with a start time near 9:30 AM. Students in grades 4-8 will battle each other after holding qualifying competitions in their classrooms with the topic of world and national geography. A new champion will be crowned. Please come out and see who will take home the title of 2018 Geography Guru of CTK.
I also want to remind parents, grandparents, and friends of CTK to come and worship with the students of CTK on Wednesday mornings. Now that Advent is over, the Sebewaing Campus will be holding its Chapel services again at 8 AM on Wednesdays while Unionville will continue to hold their Chapel services at 9:30 AM. Also, please remember that CTK students are currently collecting their offerings for Lutheran Special Education Ministries. The students started in December and will continue to bring offerings until the end of February.
I would love to have all CTK athletic fanatics check out the school website for a list of basketball games for the A-Team. The Knights were supposed to play on Friday night, but I am sure that the game was canceled due to the extreme cold temperatures outside. I have seen some practices and know that they will be able to heat up the competition as they play to God’s glory.
CTK will not be in session on Monday, January 15th, as the teachers will be attending the Valley Lutheran Teachers Conference. There will be a half day on Friday, January 19th, as this is the end of the quarter. Students will be dismissed at a new time, 11:20 AM. I ask that you say a prayer for the students at CTK to finish strong in academics as the quarter draws to a close.
A thank you to Mr. Tim Smith (and helpers) and Mrs. Valerie Zuzga (and helpers) - these two servants of God did a great job giving the school floors a new shine over the Christmas Break. When you see them, please extend a hand and thank them for taking care of our buildings.
Finally, I want to begin advertising for a family event on January 26th. There will be a family movie night which will be held on that Friday. There will be more details to come. This event will be taking place in the Unionville Campus gymnasium.
One small smile to put on your heart…Mr. and Mrs. Kaiser and the first grade class at CTK will be preparing Bibles for a servant project. A grant from Thrivent was written so that the first grade class would be able to supply Bibles to anyone who attends a church service at St. Paul to take one. A small sticker will be placed on the inside cover to spread God’s message through this servant event. Thank you, Mrs. Kaiser and the 1st graders, for your willingness to give Bibles to those who need to hear it.
I pray that you make a difference in God’s ministry this week.
In HIS ministry,
David Kaiser, Principal
Christ the King Lutheran School, Sebewaing/Unionville
