MENTORS NEEDED: We are looking for families interested in welcoming newcomers through our Mentoring Program for the upcoming school year. The goal of the Mentoring Program is simple: To help families new to CTK feel welcomed and connected to our school while imparting useful information relating to our policies and procedures. Typically, mentors make phone contact with a new CTK family several times and may arrange a face-to-face meeting if schedules allow. It is not a significant time commitment, but can make a big difference in helping someone assimilate into the CTK family. Please contact Eileen Brinker at if your family would like to volunteer.

FINAL TUITION PAYMENT: For families utilizing the 10-month payment option, your final tuition payment for the 2016-2017 school years is due on May 1st and will be delinquent on May 8th.
