“Welcome back to school!” These words rang in the halls and classrooms of Christ King School this past week as smiley faced students and staff joined together once again. We’re thrilled to be back and look forward to an exciting and successful new year.

We have some new faces at our school this year. Mr. Gallagher will be our new principal, and Miss Sturtevant will be our junior high teacher. Mrs. Younghans, in the grade 5/6 classroom, will be replacing Mrs. Gulak while she is away. We welcome them, along with all the new students and their families, to the Christ King School family.

Our school council annual general meeting will be held on Sept. 13, 2010 at 7 p.m. All parents of Christ King students belong to the school council and we encourage your participation. Every parent’s voice is important. Fresh, new ideas are needed to set the goals and direction for the upcoming year, so come out and share your gifts to make our school the very best it can be.

Very soon, our library will be up and running. Thanks to Krista Kirk and the many volunteers who helped set it up. The library will be home to the Scholastic Book Fair from Sept. 15 -21, 2010 and will be open to the public during our Open House on Sept. 20 at 5 p.m.

We are also very pleased to be housing a brand new junior kindergarten program in our school. We are currently accepting registrations to the Little Steps program for children aged 3-5.

Mark your calendar for these upcoming events:

Sept. 17: Volleyball Clinic for students

Sept. 21: School Pictures

Sept. 30: Terry Fox Run

May the coming school year be blessed and joyful for you and your family.
