This chapter in the history of Christ the King Lutheran School has come to a close. CTK had a few field trips in late May with Preschool heading to the Unionville Park, Kindergarten heading to Wilderness Park in Birch Run, 1st Grade to the Octagon Barn, 2nd Grade to the Chippewa Nature Center, 3rd Grade to Sloan Museum and Planetarium, 4th Grade to Crossroads Village, 5th Grade to the USS Edson, 6th Grade and 7th Grades to the Planetarium, and 8th Grade held its Washington, DC trip.

In addition to the field trips, CTK was busy with our musical students as they competed in MusicFest at Valley Lutheran High School. I have not received the results yet for publication but I have heard from several different students that both choirs and the individual students performed quite well again this year. The very next day, CTK students had some fun as they participated in Field Day. Students played two different water races, soccer croquet, 9 square in the air, tire roll, and some game that involved scooters and plungers (Don’t look at me - it was the new guy’s game).

At the end of the year, the 7th and 8th grade students of CTK were able to have a unique learning experience. A deputy from the Huron County Sheriff’s Department came to CTK on the last week of school to provide a course on boater safety. The students sat through two different days of instruction. I would like to thank Sheriff Kelly Hanson for providing the chance for CTK students to be part of this learning opportunity.

There are two graduations that Christ the King Lutheran School would like to announce. Mrs. Jenni Vermeersch will be conducting the Little Knights Preschool Graduation on Friday, June 1st. This will be taking place at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Unionville at 6 PM. The 8th grade graduation will be held on Monday, June 4th, in the CTK Sebewaing gymnasium. The ceremony will begin at 6:30 PM with Mr. Travis Grulke providing the graduation address to the 8th grade class. A reception held in honor of the Class of 2018 provided by the 7th grade class will follow immediately after the graduation in the cafeteria.

Finally, the last day of school for Christ the King Lutheran School for the 2017-2018 school year will be taking place on Tuesday, June 5th. An award assembly will take place at 8:00 AM in the CTK Sebewaing gymnasium for ALL students in grades K-8. I would like to invite you to see this time where we recognize all our students. Immediately following the awards assembly, Christ the King will hold our final chapel for the year. We again invite you to this special worship experience.

On Tuesday evening, CTK will hold ourGoodbye BBQ at the Unionville Campus. This will be taking place at 5 PM. Come and enjoy a relaxed family picnic where we all can reminiscence about the memories made during our year at Christ the King. We pay that God will provide a wonderful weather as we fellowship with each other and say goodbye to our 8th grade students and those families who will be leaving CTK next year.

Thank you for your love and support of Christ the King this year. Christ the King does not exist without backing from people like you. Please continue to pray and if you are led by the Spirit, donate financially, for Christ the King Lutheran School - THE premiere Lutheran school in the Thumb.

I pray that you make a difference in God’s ministry this week.
