Christ the King encourages all of its students to get involved in extra curricular activities, which help develop time management skills and nourish and develop talents throughout their years here with us. We offer an array of different clubs and activities for students to participate in. Below you will find information on these activities and the contact information for each:
The Drama Club is an after school activity offered to children in 5th Grade-8th Grade. In Drama Club, students rehearse and preform a scripted play. Children learn the basics of stagecraft, self-discipline and the importance of hard work and creativity while developing self-confidence along the way.
Every year, Christ the King’s Drama Club puts on a musical or play. Recent productions include: Willy Wonka Jr., Disney’s Aladdin Jr., Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr., and Disney’s Peter Pan Jr.
This year’s show will be a bit different than those in years past. We are not publicizing it or selling tickets due to limited space. It will be held on April 15th and 16th at Saint Joseph High School in the Black Box Theater. This year’s show is going to be for the cast members’ immediate families only as there will be very limited seating.
For more information on Drama Club, please contact Mrs. Nemeth.
Through Student Government, the Christ the King student body elects their own slate of officers which include two presidents, two vice presidents, and two scribes. These officers are in charge of committees that students can participate in to help improve the school or to create events such as school dances, pep rallies, and fundraisers.
Committees meet periodically throughout the week during middle school lunch to fulfill whatever jobs that have been assigned to them by their elected representatives.
Student government officers will also be incorporating Public Service Announcements into the school day each month, so stay tuned!
For more information on Student Government, please contact Mr. Horn!
Liturgical Choir is open to students in grades 2-8. Students practice at least twice a month and more often for special celebrations such as Christmas and Easter. Members sing at all-school liturgies and have the opportunity to cantor once they enter middle school. For more information, contact Steve Hoffman.
Bandlink is run and sponsored through Notre Dame. The students rent or buy their own instruments. The program itself is free other than instrument rental through the parent’s company of choice. It is available to students starting in 4th grade. They meet after school for an hour once a week for whole band rehearsal and on Sunday evenings for individual lessons with a mentor. For more information, visit the Bandlink blog!
Girls on the Run (GOTR) inspires girls in grades 3-5 to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. Over a period of 10 weeks, girls participate in an after-school program like no other. Designed to allow every girl to recognize her inner strength, the GOTR curriculum inspires girls to define their lives on their own terms. Throughout the season, the girls make new friends, build their confidence and celebrate all that makes them unique. Physical activity is woven into our program to inspire an appreciation of fitness and to build habits that lead to a lifetime of health. At the end of each three month session, the girls participate in a Girls on the Run 5k event. GOTR meets during the spring. For more information, visit the Girls on the Run website here or contact Kathleen Fulcher or Teresa Stack.
The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.
Christ the King’s group, Boy Scout Troop 451 meets once a month. For more information, contact Cory Dolniak.
