Greetings Christ the King School Family,
I wanted to share a few thoughts about the Public Safety Day that we had at Christ the King Lutheran School in the month of May. These were two different notifications that were passed onto me so that I could relay the messages to you, the CTK student body.
The first response came by way of Pastor Kuhl. He said that he had the privilege of serving in the Memorial Day program in the Millerwise Park. He said that he met Sheriff Hanson, the guest speaker at the ceremony. Sheriff Hanson told Pastor Kuhl that the Public Safety Day was the first time he has been to Christ the King Lutheran School. Sheriff Hanson told Pastor Kuhl that Christ the King Lutheran School students were “a great bunch of kids.”
The second reaction came from one of our own CTK parents, Chief Matt Bumhoffer of the Sebewaing Fire Department. You may remember him as the guy who soaked you with the fire truck at the end of the day, TWICE! I have the original copy of his letter in my office but I copied his letter verbatim so you could see his thanks of his men for the invitation to First Responder Day.
I just wanted to say thank you to you, the staff, and students of CTK, and anyone who helped with Public Safety Day. It was a blessing and honor to have a day set aside for us and invite us into chapel and school. In my own thoughts, I thought the day was a huge success. It was fun to walk the halls again and bring back a lot of fun memories. It wasn’t fun to find out that I wasn’t smarter than a sixth grader finishing 12 out of 13 people playing Kahoot! Thanks Mrs. Maust!!
Then off to Mrs. Yoder’s class for a few hands of speed only to win two games. Thank you, Ms. Kaiser, for dropping cards on the ground to let me win one game then lose the next game to her. A big thank you to Mr. MacFarlane for letting me win and giving me some self-confidence.
Then off to recess for a game of kickball. That is where I learned the most. I should’ve have been wearing cowboy boots back in grade school because you can really put the point in and make that ball fly. I noticed that sportsmanship at CTK has not change over the years. Everyone got along great playing outside from what I could see.
Then lunch!!! Thank you to Mrs. Gangler and Mrs. Dressler for the wonderful and fantastic dessert. They must’ve known it was my favorite and that’s why they made it.
Also, thank you for the goody bags and the nice descriptions that explained everything on the table.
I hope this is something that continues in the future and continues to grow every year. This was a great way for students and first responders to interact with each other. If there is anything that I or Sebewaing Fire Department can do for CTK, please let me now. By the way, let the students know to bring a change of clothes next year if we do it again. If not, there is always Field Day!
God’s Blessings to all at CTK.
