A Note From the Director
- This week we played the violin in music, worked on our "costumes" for the Art Parade in art class, and learned how to use the wind to fly kites!
- Thank you to everyone who donated to our Lenten Service Project. The children helped load the car with donations today. We learned that Catholic Charities serves 500 families every day!! Your donations of diapers, formula, and food will be put to good use!
- Spring pictures are next week. Children will have free dress on both Tuesday and Wednesday. Mrs. Bergner sent an email this week with the schedule. Please refer to it so you know which day your child's picture will be taken. Pictures will be outside, weather permitting. In the event of bad weather, we will reschedule.
- Easter is next weekend. Please note that the school is closed on Good Friday (April 2nd) and Easter Monday (April 5th).

Divine Mercy Novena
Experience the power of prayer, and join us in praying the Divine Mercy Novena beginning on Good Friday (4/2). The Divine Mercy novena prayers were given to St. Faustina through an apparition of our Lord Jesus. Each day has a new petition that seeks God’s mercy for different purposes. The novena ends on Divine Mercy Saturday (April 10).
Sign up HERE to participate and each day you will receive an email reminder from CTK that contains the Novena.

Vacation Bible School
Our VBS theme this year is “Around the World with Our Lady.” Each day, we will visit the various countries of Our Lady, Mother Mary, apparitions. Participants will also learn about the Rosary. There will be food, music, games and crafts all centered around Mother Mary. The week will be full of fun, fellowship and faith formation as we help children grow in their faith through love and devotion to Mother Mary.
- Ages 3 to entering Kindergarten
- 9 a.m. to noon each day (lunch not provided)
Similar to VBS, Totus Tuus provides religious education in a fun and engaging environment. The program's name is Latin for "Totally Yours" and was St. John Paul II's motto, taken from St. Louis de Montfort's "True Devotion to Mary." The program has a Marian focus, with a different theme every year that ties back into Marian devotions.
- Grades 1-5 (9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day, lunch not provided)
Children will learn how to pray, about the importance of prayer, explore the sacraments and discover how to participate more fully in Mass.
- Grades 6-8 (9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day, lunch not provided)
Designed for middle schoolers, students will strengthen their faith by focusing on prayer and meditation, small-group discussions, adoration, Mass and reconciliation.
- High School Students (7 to 9 p.m.)
Designed for high schoolers, students will strengthen their faith by focusing on prayer and meditation, small-group discussions, adoration, Mass and reconciliation.
