CTK CRUSADER CHATTER
10/23/17

So many things to talk about – First of all, what a great time was had by all who attended Trick or Trunk this past
Friday night. It was wonderful to see all of the students, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and others getting
into the spirit of Halloween. A special thanks to HASA officers Erica Adams and Kristin Bohling for coordinating
this fun event, the Men’s Club for the delicious hamburgers and hot dogs, and the many volunteers who made this
all happen. Look for pictures in next week’s Chatter.

Next, our fundraiser has officially ended and, once again, the CTK family came through big time. There is a lot of
bookkeeping to take care of, but we are planning to draw for the big prizes as soon as possible and winners will be
announced in a blast to parents. The prizes will be ordered and distributed to students as soon as they are
available.

A beautiful mass was held this past Thursday honoring breast cancer survivors. Students held a “Pink Bake Sale”
and donated to a “Pink Out Day.” It was so touching to look out over the church and see all of the pink and know
that the CTK family was helping to further breast cancer research and prevention. All proceeds will go the to Karen
T. Stall Research and Breast Institute. Our students really loved dressing in pink.

The PK2, PK3, PK4 and Kindergarten students had a blast last week with visits from the Fire Department, EMS, and
Border Patrol. Pictures will be in next week’s Chatter.

Last Friday was also the first school dance and it was a huge success. Thanks to Mrs. Terrebonne for putting the
dance together, and to our chaperones – Mrs. Bouvier, Mr. Kimbro, and Mr. Murphy. Students really loved watching
Mr. Kimbro and Mr. Murphy “bust some moves.”

Today is the last day to purchase your tickets to CTK Night with the Pelicans. Be sure and get your ticket order in
to the front office.
