Christ the King Lutheran School has been awarded a grant from Nexteer Automotive for our First Lego League team for the 2014-2015 school year. The FLL season starts at the beginning of September and generally ends the week after Thanksgiving. The team will design a self guided Lego robot, solve and present a solution to a real world problem and participate in team building activities. You can get more info from the web site, www.usfirst.org. Participation is open to 9 - 14 year old students (3rd to 8th grade). As the beginning of the school year approaches I will look to put together a practice schedule and will send it out to students on the team. Please call, e-mail, or text me to let me know if you have any questions or if your child is interested; 989-430-0248 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank You, Jeremy VanTol
Volleyball season is right around the corner and we wanted to update you on what to expect this season. In previous years, we have had both a girls 7th and 8th grade “A” team as well as a 5th and 6th grade “B” team. Due to the expected low number of 7th and 8th grade girls participating this year, there may be a need to have some 6th graders compete at the “A” level. We are planning on combining 5-8th grade practices for the first 2 days as a “try out” practice to determine teams. All 7th and 8th graders will participate on the “A” team as well as all 5th graders on the “B” team. The try out period will be to evaluate the skills of our 6th graders to determine who would be better suited to participate at the “A” level. Our CTK handbook describes the differences of competing at the A and B level. Some of the differences would be more “A” weekend tournaments, a longer season, differences in expected playing time and an increase in the skill level of our competitors. If you would prefer your 6th grade child compete with athletes her own age please let us know.
Practice begins Aug. 18th, 3-5PM. This will be for all grade levels. Kristy Williamson will be coaching our “A” girls team this year but we are still in need of a “B” coach. Our athletic programs are possible because of the willingness of volunteers to come forward and help. If you feel you could volunteer please let us know. Without a coach, we will not be able to have a “B” team. If you have any questions please call Kristy Williamson at 883-2215. Looking forward to a great season!
Soccer season is also right around the corner. We are pleased to have this year’s team coached by our new 8th grade teacher, Mrs. Katie Maust. She will be assisted by Mr. Weiss. The team is open to grades 5-8. Practices will start Monday, Aug. 18th from 9-11AM. Practices times will be the same for the first week, Monday through Thursday.
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.
Ok it's official, I just got the word from my friends that own Camper's Haven Family Campground in Bad Axe. Any member of Collide Youth group (well actually there is no formal membership required to be in Collide ) , is invited free of charge to enjoy all the activities of their "Wet and Wild" weekend on Saturday August 23rd.
You will get a free day pass into the campground, plus a free all-inclusive Fun-Pass wrist band to enjoy all their campground actives.
Going on that day is their fun water wars, canoe racing, volleyball, evening hay rides, basketball, plus their jump pillow will be watered-downed. Plus fishing, mini golf, swimming pool, game room, frisbee golf , etc.
They suggest to get there before 1:00pm to enjoy all the action. So I would say be there shortly after 12 noon. I will see what transpiration arrangements can be made. But, we will need to rely on car pooling.
Again this is for youth in 7th-12th. Plus any of the 2014 high school grads.
The dance concludes at 11:00pm and we must vacate the park at that time as well.
What you need to bring. Change of clothes and/or swimming suits. Beach towels. Basketball shoes, Money for anything you may want to buy in the camp store. Plus maybe $1:00 or $2:00 dollars just to go towards our food and drinks for this event. There are showers/restrooms there to change in.
To learn more about the campground and the Wet n Wild weekend. Check them out at: www.Campershavenonline.com
This is s very family friendly campground and we have a number of church and school families with season campers there. I'm sure you will recognize some of them that will be there.
There is no set agenda for us that day, just pick and choose what you each would like to do. The only thing we will have a schedule for is a proposed dinner time to stop back in at the pavilion to grab some grub.
Please let me know if you are planning to attend. I need to provide a headcount and a list of names for the passes.
Hope to see ya there!
