Christ-King Chronicle

As we enter the last week of school, I think back over the past year. In a word, it’s been wonderful. We have accomplished much learning in new areas.

We look forward to a relaxing summer and to many more exciting opportunities for the 2011-2012 school year.

On Friday, June 24, the grade 6-9 guitar class performed an end-of-the-year concert for us. As a large group, they played songs such as Yellow Submarine and Love Me Tender, as well as a stirring rendition of The Lion Sleeps Tonight. Then they broke off into smaller bands to play a special tune that they had each been perfecting. I especially enjoyed the electric guitar version of Amazing Grace.

A proud bunch of parents, siblings, grandparents and cousins looked on lovingly as the Kindergarten class of 2011 received their Kindergarten diplomas on Thursday, June 23. The class entertained the crowd with “The Bumblebee Song”, “Graduation Poem” and “This Little Light of Mine” and educational assistant Kim Van Straten commented on the students’ vision of their future.

Members of the Class of 2023 hope to make their mark on the world as rock stars, teachers, carpenters, Disney princesses and even the pope! Afterwards, they led us in the Lord’s Prayer and then everyone enjoyed snacks and time to visit.

Congratulations to all the Kinderkids on a job well done!

Father Arlan will be celebrating our End of the Year Mass will be on Tuesday, June 28 at Christ King School. Mass will be followed by two awards ceremonies to recognize the hard work and dedication of our students.

I will leave you with an old Irish blessing: May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back, may the sun shine warm upon your face, the rains fall soft upon your fields, and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
