Bake Sale Goodies

A little bit of normal can go a long way. The first Bake Sale and Casual Day was a fun, "normal" activity that Mrs. House, Mrs. Coppola, our cafeteria ladies, and the PTO worked on so that students can still enjoy a Bake Sale treat each month!

Football

Saturday, September 12th was the debut of the 5th & 6th Catholic Fire football team! A touchdown pass and two interceptions caught by our Bears led the team to overtime. They played hard against the CAC Mustangs but came up just short of the win. T

he 7th & 8th Catholic Firecrackers continue the quest to defend their title. The boys battled hard against the Pine Bluff Zebras and our CTK boys' inner Bear came out! Two different Bears crossed the goal line with passes from our CTK Quarterback! The offense and defense line showed those Zebras that bear claws are stronger than stripes! With a win of 24-26 our Firecrackers then traveled to play against the Forest Heights Eagles. The Firecrackers came out on top 14-21moving our record to 2-1. Next up the Dunbar Bobcats!
