Dear School Families,
Greetings families. We pray you are having a safe and fun summer.
Mrs. Wilson, Mrs. Carini, and the rest of your admin team have been very busy preparing for the start of the 2017-18 school year. We cannot thank them enough for their hard work and organization in getting the school ready to reset.
We would also like to welcome Mrs. Nicole Yackee our new 1st Grade teacher, our middle school Teacher Assistant, Miss Marissa Hernandez, and Rick Lejano as our Music teacher. We have a really great team of teachers, assistants, and staff put together for next year all around and I am grateful to each of them for their continued service to the families of this parish and school.
We welcome all of the new families who will be joining Christ the King School this year: Amole, Arch, Argenal, Clarke, Cote, Davis, Della Maggiore, Dolan, Drury, Gesink, Gray, Huber, Hyatt, Karst, Kelleher, Landini, Montoya Armendariz, Morgan, Ortega, Ostrander, Patania, Peters, Rabbach, Santos, Shiveley, Urcuyo, Wrighton, and Wingard.
It is a joy to welcome new people into our school community since we always learn and grow with new relationships. I know that our new families will find our school community to be both warm and welcoming. My best advice for new members to this community is “get involved.” This community exists and is sustained by all of us taking an active role in our children’s future. Yes of course you should sign up to chaperone a field trip and help with the class Christmas Party, but also come to Parent Association meetings, join an event committee, and volunteer for art awareness. These are great ways to meet other parents, to put faces with the children’s names you hear about at the dinner table, to see your own children in their natural environment. Most importantly you are modeling to your kids that you and the school are partners in their education.
Enjoy the rest of your summer and may God Bless You.
