nullWow! This week just flew past. Christ the King Lutheran was very busy this week. Children had a movie day, a day where a different teacher came in and taught a lesson, a mystery reader, a servant project, and some wacky Olympics. They had popcorn, fruit, ice cream, and a bunch of other food. They got to dress in PJs, dress in the dark (mismatch day), dress for success, summer dress day (for the die hards of Lutheran School Week spirit!), and CTK Blue and Silver Day. Many thanks to EVERYONE who helped to make this a great week to be a Lutheran school. In addition, the faculty and staff even got to have some quiet fellowship on Wednesday morning at breakfast (Thanks again, Marxhausens!!!)

After a whirlwind week like that, any other week would just seem calm. During this coming week, CTK will have Parent Night for 8th grade athletes on Wednesday night at the Sebewaing gymnasium. This will take place at 4:30 PM. We want to honor the parents of our CTK athletes with a small recognition.

On Thursday, it will be the 7th grade class’s turn to make a trip into Bay City. This will be their first trip to the Good Samaritan Rescue Mission. It is my hope that they will see the joy that comes from volunteering and being a servant to those who need our help.

On Friday, Christ the King will be celebrating those students who have achieved a 3.17 or higher as the Honor Roll Breakfast will be taking place. I will be emceeing the event with my above average jokes (I set the bar low at the beginning and have been increasing my bad humor during each event.). A special thank you to Mrs. Julie Mammel for coordinating this event for parents and students to have fellowship with one another. Teachers are still tabulating grades so we will post the Honor Roll next week.

Mrs. Geiger wanted me to announce to 8th grade parents that time has come to think about ordering Confirmation and graduation downs. Please let the church office know by Friday, February 10th if your child will need a cap and gown ($32), a gown only ($27), or a cap and tassel ($14). Please contact the church office even if you are not in need of anything. If the church office is not notified by February 9th, a cap and gown will be ordered and you will be charged. Please contact the church office by phone 883-3050 or by email: church@ilcmi.org

That is the news that we have for this week at Christ the King Lutheran School. I asked this during a recent voters’ assembly - please pray. Open up your church directory and begin praying for each name listed in that book. There are both school families and church families who are truly hurting. They are hurting emotionally, physically, financially, and spiritually. Even though a person is wearing a smile, doesn’t mean they are having a good day.

Again, I want to extend thanks on behalf of the faculty, staff, students, and parents of Christ the King Lutheran School for your full support of OUR Lutheran school. We continue to be part of God’s ministry because of you and your prayers. As we continue to pray for you, it is my hope that you would reciprocate those conversations to our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ.

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
