CHRIST THE KING SCHOOL NEWS NOTES

September 9, 2015

FROM THE DESK OF...PAULA SMITH, ACTING PRINCIPAL

09.09.15

Dear Parents,


It is a very busy time of year, and Oktoberfest is here! School has been in session for only a month, and I realize that we have asked a lot of you already. It is a tremendous commitment to send your children the Christ the King School, and we appreciate your dedication.


Oktoberfest and Innisbrook are two of our largest fundraisers, which help us greatly to keep our school tuition lower. Our school's tuition continues to be the lowest in the diocese due to our fundraising efforts, and we carefully prioritize school needs to control costs.


The amount of hard work that goes into these fundraisers is incredible. Thank you for devoting your time to help make these events so successful. I'd especially like to thank our head chairs, the Troianos, the Williams, and the Harneys, as well as all the other chairs and our sponsors. If you haven't signed up for Oktoberfest yet, please volunteer. It is a special community event that is unique to Christ the King, and an opportunity to give back to our parish, school, and the broader community.


Thank you, again, for all your efforts so far this year. Whether you are working a few hours at Oktoberfest, chairing a committee, or buying some wrapping paper, we couldn't do it without you!


Happy Oktoberfest!


Sincerely,

Paula Smith

Acting Principal

Christ the King School

ANOTHER GREAT WEEK...

Last week, CKS was met with increased competition (a growing number of teams participating) and brutal heat at the Frankfort Archives meet on Wednesday.

True to form, our runners were determined to beat their own "personal best" times, and took first place in all four heats. Our first seven runners finishing score points corresponding to their qualified finish, and the team with the least number of points wins the heat. Our first seven runners in each heat with their points scored are:


5th-8th Girls: Finished in First Place out of Eleven Teams -

Lainey Cole (5), Emma James Bryant (6), Callie West (12), Abby Clark (18), Nina Jazdzewski (24), Claire Pilson (27), Chloe Martin (36).


5th-8th Boys: Finished in First Place out of Ten Teams -

Tyler Smith (2), Joseph Archer (5), Joseph Dilger (7), Evan Harney (8), Benjamin Adair (24), Noah Hampton (27), Jack Hanna (29).


1st-4th Girls: Finished in First Place out of Five Teams -

Lydia Kennedy (1), Alaina Howell (4), Riley Farber (5), Maysie Houlihan (6), Joanna Bryant (12), Emma Peterson (17), Delia Good (25).


1st-4th Boys: Finished in First Place out of Nine Teams -

Rowen Williams (2), Andrew Good (9), Bennett Williams (11), Michael Pratt Cashman (20), Owen Kennedy (28), Ellis Williams (29), Carter Allen (33).


Our mid-section runners push the pace of the overall race, and they are growing in strength and speed. Top finishers, do not get too comfortable! Hear those footsteps? They belong to someone you know!


Congratulations to all our runners! We are proud of all of you!
