A Message From The Principal
Dear CKS Families,
It is good to be back together for this most happy time of the year for children.
With Advent, we begin a new liturgical year. There are many ways the children
prepare for Christmas: special Advent prayers, Christmas songs heard throughout
the second floor as children prepare for the concert on the 15 th , Mrs. Cootey and
Mrs. Tomkowicz are getting materials organized for the annual Christmas Shop on
the 19th , in French classes, students are making their “sabots”, early ed. children
get sabots as well with the help of their big buddies, and PTO organizes the
annual Barnes and Noble fundraiser on the 3rd . Most of all, we use this time to
think of others and how we can support the less fortunate around us. We thank
you for your generosity and support. CKS is a better place because of everyone’s
hard work and prayers.
Mrs. Odile Steel

JOIN US NEXT WEEK - PARENT SOCIAL - DECEMBER 8th - RSVP
We are very excited to come together at Burlington Beer Company on December 8th. This adult-only event is a great opportunity to spend time together as a community outside of school and meet fellow parents whom we might not always run into.
Please RSVP HERE. The cost will be $5/attendee and includes hors d'oeuvres and there will be a cash/credit bar. On the RSVP form, there is also a survey to gauge interest in a "Pizza and Movie" childcare opportunity at CKS during the event.
5th ANNUAL CKS KIDS ONLY CHRISTMAS SHOP - DECEMBER 19th
The 5th Annual CKS Kids-Only Christmas Shop is coming soon! On Monday, December 19th, CKS students will get an opportunity to shop for their families from items donated by you, our friends, and supporters. Students will be able to purchase items from 25 cents, 50 cents, $1, and $2 tables during the school day. Students are only allowed to purchase one item per person for their immediate family (Dad, Mom, siblings).
We are collecting items from Monday, November 28th through Friday, December 16th.
We are looking for "white elephants," garage sale-type items that you are ready to discard but may be a treasure to someone else, or items purchased new. We accept all kinds of things; small toys, new pens, pencils, markers, coloring books, new containers of play-doh, cookbooks, complete games, household items, seasonal decorations and ornaments, tools, jewelry, stationery, homemade gifts, etc. We ask that you do not donate clothing, very large items, or stuffed animals, and all items are in great condition. We are asking each family to donate between 3-5 items. The money collected from this event will be donated to Toys for Kids.
Your donated items can be dropped off in the main office at CKS now until Friday, December 16th. *We are also seeking gift bags, small jewelry-style boxes, tissue paper, present labels, and tape so we can send children home with gifts ready to give.
Thank you in advance for your donations and for supporting the Christ the King School community. We are looking forward to this awesome event! If you have any questions about this event, please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
