Race for Education 2020

We have the best supporters at Christ the King Catholic School! Our parents, grandparents, family, friends, alumni, and many, many more have helped raise over $41,000 for the Race for Education! Mrs. House, Mrs. Coppola, Coach C., and our PTO volunteers figured out a way to still have the race even with social-distancing measures in place. Each student raced during their PE time and had a BLAST! If you haven't made a donation yet but would still like to click here: https://ctklr.weshareonline.org/ws/opportunities/Race/donate

Mass Hacks

When students are not able to attend all school mass in person they watch it live in their classrooms. They are able to participate in all parts of the mass, including receiving the Eucharist. Students in Mrs. Ross’ 6th grade class have improvised by turning their outdoor classroom beach towels into kneelers.

Guardian Angels Say Hello

Each year our 8th graders and 2nd graders pair up and enjoy spending time together. They get together for activities and pray for one another throughout the year as they prepare for Confirmation and First Communion. The Guardian Angel program, a Christ the King School tradition, continues even with social-distancing in place. Eighth grade students sent a special message to their 2nd grade angels last week.

Johnny Appleseed Day

Another fun tradition at Christ the King School is celebrating Johnny Appleseed Day! First graders even got to participate in relay races after spending the week learning about how Johnny Appleseed became a hero. Students taste-tested different types of apples and charted which ones they liked best - yum!

Teacher Appreciation Luncheon

Our PTO volunteers figured out a way for teachers to still be able to enjoy a yummy lunch and feel special for the Teacher Appreciation Luncheon.

Teddy Bear Picnic

It was a great day for a Teddy Bear Picnic! Pre-K students played with their bears at centers, napped with the bears, sang and danced with their bears, and, of course, went on a picnic with their bears!

Arkansas History STEM Project

Ms. Haney’s 3rd grade class enjoyed working on an Arkansas History STEM activity. They formed the state symbols of Arkansas out of dough. Many symbols were represented including the state tree, bird, insect, flower, flag, and more. The virtual students made their dough at home and got to participate, too!

Choir Practice has Started

Mr. G and the choir have been meeting for a couple of weeks now. Students are staying safe by distancing in the church and only singing for 30 minutes at a time. The other 30 minutes is spent learning about the dynamics of singing, including notes, pitch, and volume. We can't wait to hear the beautiful voices from our choir again!

NEWS FROM THE BEAR DEN

Football

Our Catholic Firecracker football team continues the quest to defend their title. On Tuesday, October 1st our Firecrackers, led by our CTK Bears, took on the Dunbar Bobcats. The hungry hungry inner Bear chomped up 4 on-side kick recoveries leading to 5 touchdowns and 5 extra points beating the Bobcats 35-20. Our Firecrackers move to 3-1 and will feast on the Henderson Hawks next Tuesday. MMMMM finger-lickin' good!

It was a back and forth fight to the end but our new Catholic Fire football team, also led by several CTK bears, clawed their way to a win against the Episcopal wildcats 14-12. The only thing better than a Bobcat leg is Wildcat toe!!! MMMMMM dessert was yummy. The Catholic Fire followed up with dessert by beating the Baptist Prep Eagles this past Saturday 20-12. The next game goes down this Saturday against the PA Bruins. If we win they advance to the Championship game. GO CATHOLIC FIRE!
