Chapel Offerings are going to "Acts 2 Enterprise" this term. This is a mission project that helps support the urban areas of Detroit. Unfortunately the chapel offerings are at a very low amount. This week's offering amounted to $0.15 per student in grades 3-8. Interestingly though, the breakfast and juice sales are always higher on chapel days. Please consider helping our chapel mission offering each Wednesday by giving a bit more to help the urban project it funds. Thank You.
Child Safety Program: Unionville campus is doing a child safety ID program at 8:30 Am on April 22nd. This is an additional program besides the child identifications that everyone will get from Lifetouch.
Kindergarten Screening: Mrs. Werschky will have kindergarten screening on April 23rd. Please contact her for more information or questions regarding this.Special Popcorn Day: On Friday, April 25th we will have a special popcorn sale day. The money from the popcorn sales will go toward our mission project this term. It will cost 50 cents per bag of popcorn. Any students interested in getting popcorn, please try to let your teacher or Mrs. Doan know by Thursday so we can try to get an idea of how much popcorn we need to pop. Thank you.
AR Challenge: Accelerated Reader challenge was a great success. Congratulations to 4th grade for their third place finish in the AR challenge. Their classroom was awarded $15. Great reading was done by all our students. Remember that reading doesn't have to stop when school does. Keep reading through the summer. Students can still take AR tests in the summer here at CTK. You can do this in the computer lab at Sebewaing campus with Mrs. Schamber every Wednesday.
Deadline for AR Points: A reminder that the deadline for this year’s AR points to be turned in is May 19th. Any points earned after that will go toward next year.
Bike to School Day 2014: Be a “superhero” and protect the right to bike and walk to school safely during this year’s National Bike to School Day on May 7th, 2014. The Michigan Fitness Foundation’s Safe Routes to School program and Michigan Dept. of Transportation is inviting our school to participate in the Bike to School day (May 7th). It’s a national event that focuses on building awareness for communities to be more walk-able and bike-able by planning a bike themed event. This year’s theme is “Superheroes”. We do need to register our participation and for me to do that I need an apx. Number of how many kids will be participating. If your child is planning to walk or bike to school on May 7th, please email Mrs. Doan at email@example.com so I can register our school’s number of kids/parents/participants for the national event. Also by registering, our school will get stickers to distribute to students that bike, roll, or walk to school on May 7th, as well as a certificate of participation signed by the Governor for our school to display, and some other informational materials to share with students, teachers, and parents, tips and tricks, posters, and a book-list with bike themed stories. The entire month of May is National Bike Month.
Music Festival: On Friday, May 9th, many students will be participating in the Lutheran Schools Music Festival. This is an opportunity for students to compete vocally, with an instrument, and through our handbell groups in a competitive, learning environment. This year the festival will be at St. Michael’s Lutheran School in Richville. We have a number of students who have been practicing for several weeks. Best wishes to all of them.
Spring Carnival: CTKL will be having our Spring Carnival on May 9th at CTKL school gym and cafeteria of Sebewaing campus. The concessions will open at 5:30 PM and games will begin at 6PM and end at 8:30 PM. Tickets in advance are 5 for $1. Tickets at the door are 4 for $1. Tickets are used to play games, play on bouncy inflatables and to purchase concessions. They are available to purchase at the Sebewaing CTK office. Many families have volunteered to bring in cookies. We have lots of cookies but are in need of bars, cakes, or pies. Could some families consider bringing in cakes, pies, coffee cakes, instead? We’d so appreciate it and thank you to all who have offered to help out with this.
Field Day and Joint Chapel: On May 16th, Unionville and Sebewaing will have a joint chapel day with a special art project for students to work on together at the Sebewaing campus. Also that day will be Field Day. We are planning a tire roll, fun with feet game, fruit basket upset game, 3 legged race, concessions, and will be tie dying shirts. All students need to bring in a shirt that day to be tie dyed. We will then have a special tye day shirt day at school on May 30th. If students don’t bring in a shirt, they will not get to tie dye one. They will instead be doing the sidewalk chalk station.
Knights for More Days: Once again our school will be participating in the Unionville-Sebewaing Relay for Life, held at Bay Shore Camp on May 17th. We strongly encourage all of our families to get involved with a relay, if not this one, there are other relays. The more money raised, the greater the fight against cancer. If you are interested in registering for this relay you may do so at www.relayforlife.org, look for our team Knights for More Days. When you register online it does ask you for a donation. If you or your child are interested in selling luminaries ($10 a bag) please see Mrs. Kundinger or let her know and she will get some for you. We will also be setting up the luminary bags on Field Day and doing our own “mini” relay laps, asking our cancer survivors to lead the way. If you have any questions, need the bags, or need help registering online, please contact Mrs. Kundinger. Watch for more information in the weeks to come.
The youth group which includes 7th and 8th graders, have many fun activities planned throughout the year. Keep checking back here for an update on all the latest activities scheduled.
