Academics & Programs
The purpose of the Christ the King Catholic School Basketball Program is to provide a positive, Christian atmosphere for children to learn the sport of basketball while enabling them to become responsible, independent individuals. It is important to remember that volunteers and everyone working at Christ the King are working toward a common goal: to help our children reach their full potential, to build their confidence, to gain a love of the sport, and to develop good sportsmanship. It is our mission to provide the children of Christ the King Catholic School the opportunity to experience success in a supportive, competitive, and Christian atmosphere.
Goals: to learn the game of basketball, to get exercise and to have fun!
All parents must volunteer at the home games to ensure a successful program. Sign-ups will be available for taking money at the door, working in the concession stand, keeping the clock, and cleaning up at the end of the day.

Students in the 3rd through 6th grades are encouraged to participate in the children’s choir at Christ the King Catholic School. The choir sings at all the weekly children’s masses, as well as other times during the school year.
Battle of the Books (BOB)
Our 4th – 5th graders can choose to participate in BOB for the school year. Participants read books, meet at recess to discuss the books, and work in teams to compete against other Catholic schools in our area and state to see which school’s team has the best knowledge of the selected books. Students receive the reading list of selected books during summer break. Recess meetings as a team start typically in October with competitions locally and for state occurring in April.
Students are given the opportunity to join Boy Scout and Girl Scout organizations. Volunteers for leadership positions are parents and/or staff members. All groups subscribe to the structure of such organizations. Meetings are normally held after school and endorsed by the administration of Christ the King Catholic School.
Christ the King offers many different enrichment and leadership opportunities for student engagement at all grade levels.
Student Council Students in the 3rd through 5th grades are given the opportunity to run for office as a class representative. Students entering 5th and 6th grades can serve as president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, historian or chaplain. Students meet monthly after school and most projects are service-oriented. The students plan, organize and administer a Father-Daughter Dance, as well as, a number of other projects to instill a “service to others” attitude. All information related to Student Council is sent home in the children’s Friday Folders each week.
