Class Information


This Week in Second Grade

We are having an Open House today Sunday, March 17 from 9:00am - 12:30pm.  This is the rescheduled open house from the bitterly cold weather we experienced during Catholic Schools Week.  Please stop by either after Mass on Sunday or between the Masses for a look at the classrooms, to see some of your child's school work, or for some donuts, coffee, and fellowship.  If you know anyone interested in attending Christ King next year, this is a wonderful opportunity to see what we are all about.  Guided tours will be available.  I will be there from 9:00am - 10:30am.  I hope to see you today!
The Book Fair will also be going on this week in the North Hall and Library.  Please stop by and check it out.  Pick up a new book or two for that great reader in your family!! 
We will be having a live Stations of the Cross performance in the gym on Friday at 2:15pm.  If you are able to attend, it is well worth your time.  The children involve always do a fantastic job recreating Jesus' last days on Earth.  At the time of this writing, I am not sure if this week is the singing stations (I think it is).  If it is, it is not to be missed!  It is so very moving and has brought me to tears the past couple of years that it has been done here at CK.
