Our Christ the King Catholic School community is comprised of students, parents, teachers, staff, alumni, pastors, and parishioners. As an inclusive community of Christ, we strive to create future leaders, life-long learners, and servants of God. Through an academic and spiritual environment, members of the community work together to provide opportunities and experiences for each child to know, love, serve, lead, and grow.
At CK, we have various ways to get involved with our community, from events and parent organizations to student-led campaigns and grade-level projects. Our goal is to build a unique community that extends beyond the classroom and enriches the families of Christ the King.
At Christ the King, one way we celebrate our community with each other is in our Caring Communities. During this assembly, all grade levels come together once a month to learn about our Catholic faith and how we can foster those lessons in our lives to become a family in Christ. Students from all grades are assigned to a faculty member, where students from different grades get to know each other throughout the year.
Philanthropy & Class Service
In addition to seasonal school-wide community service projects (such as collecting food items and packaging Thanksgiving dinner boxes), each class is expected to complete at least one community service project each year.
In previous years, classes have done the following:
collected shoes for the "Soles for Souls" organization;
held clothing, food and toy drives; provided gift baskets for families attending Father Woody's Christmas party; helped elderly neighbors with yard work; raised thousands of dollars for the American Heart Assn. by participating in "Jump Rope for Hearts"
Middle school students complete 36 hours of community service each school year as part of their grade.
Throughout the year, students and families will engage with fellow community members through events, service days, fundraising drives, and student-led projects. Here are just a few ways we connect with our community:
- Appreciation projects for Veterans and First Responders
- Trunk or Treat
- Community Fish Fry
- 4th Grade letter campaign to CK neighbors
- Campus Clean Up with Knights of Columbus
Cultural Diversity Program
This program was introduced during the 2021-2022 school year to promote and celebrate events, teachings, and traditions of the various cultures in our community and the world through the Catholic lens. The Cultural Diversity Program engages students through different cultural experiences including: music, food, art, science, sports, dance, and more.
A few cultural events we have celebrated: Irish Step Dancers for St. Patrick's Day; Pow-wow with drummers, singers, and dancers for Native American Heritage Month; and a martial arts demonstration for Asian/Pacific Islanders Heritage Month.
To promote our school community, two classes are paired together where students in each class will have a Buddy. Students sit with their Buddy during Mass and participate together in various activities throughout the year.
