School Advisory Board—The Christ the King School Advisory Board is comprised of nine members of the parish and school community, who provide guidance and assistance to the principal, work toward maintaining the vitality of the school and assist in fundraising efforts.  The Board also oversees Christ the King's technology initiative and assists with enrollment, retention, and growth initiatives to ensure the continuing vitality of Christ the King School.  Contact:  Ruth Guest at cksab@ck-school.org

Family and School Association—The Family and School Association is a volunteer parent/teacher organization that provides programs and events to enhance the curriculum, support the faculty and encourage a sense of community and hospitality, all while having some fun together.  Contact:  Michele Pettiford at michele_stecher@yahoo.com

Christ the King School Foundation—Christ the King School has been a treasure for the neighborhood for many years.  We recognize, though, that the cost of a Catholic education can pose a challenge.  In 1993 a group of parishioners formed an independent foundation to create an endowment fund for the school.  This novel approach has proved to be a continuing source of significant financial support for the school and continues to make a Catholic education more affordable for all.  Contact:  Jackie Dunn at jackiedunn1@att.net

ReachOut Retreats—Youth Ministry at Christ the King seeks to engage 7th-12th grade youth in experiences of faith, service and fun!  We participate in parish and Diocese-wide activities as well as the National Catholic Youth Conference.  A highlight each year is the ReachOut Retreat, a weekend of faith, fellowship, service and fun, which draws participants from the Midwest.  Contact:  Karen Malone at kmalone@walshgroup.com

MANNA—One of the easiest ways to support Christ the King School is through participation in the Manna Program.  Parishioners can buy certificates from national and local retailers at face value.  Christ the King School receives a percentage of the value from the retailer when the certificates are purchased. Certificates can be purchased at the rectory as detailed in The King's Page church bulletin.  Contact:  Erin Ross at CKManna9235@att.net
