The best way to know what a student has learned is when you see them apply it through their actions. The most important life long lessons we teach at Christ the King come from our weekly Masses with Father Todd and during Religion class. The students learn about their faith and how Jesus wants us to live on a daily basis. We have also put an emphasis on being Protectors of one another, based on the following quote from another of our greatest teachers, Pope Francis, “Let us Protect Christ in our Lives, so we can protect others, so we can protect creation”.
Our students applied these lessons of our Faith in an amazing way through their donations to our Haitian Student Lunch Program. We set a goal of raising $1,000 in three months. This would supply 5 students with lunches for the entire year. We had previously collected $400, and this week we collected over $800 in one day to exceed our goal! I am very proud of our students. I know that they will continue to apply the lessons they have learned about helping others throughout their lives.
