Learning @ Home

We're following the shelter in place / safer at home directives of Metro Government. Our physical facilities are closed, but learning continues. Login to FACTS and watch your email for details on class assignments and learning experiences for your students. Expect newsletters from teachers to help you plan your home learning environment and routine. We're checking voicemails and emails remotely, so don't hesitate to leave a message and we'll be back in touch. 


Reading Week Visits from Local Luminaries

What a treat to welcome former Tennessee Senator & Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, his wife Tracy, and First Lady of Tennessee Maria Lee recently. All came to read to CKS first graders, help us continue our "Be Kind" initiative and encourage students to demonstrate kindness through service in our Nashville community and beyond.


Precautionary Measures: Covid 19

Covid

Here at Christ the King School we continue to monitor the Federal Center for Disease Control and the Tennessee Department of Health for the latest information pertaining to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Currently there is a low risk of infection in the United States. Our faculty and staff have been advised to implement heightened awareness protocols to prevent the spread of any communicable disease in the building.  This includes frequent hand washing, not sharing water bottles, keeping hands/fingers away from the eyes, nose, and mouth, and caring for persons presenting flu-like symptoms in the office, away from the rest of the community.  We advise you to reinforce these everyday good health habits at home to avoid illness.  Please remember if a child has a fever, he/she may return to school only after being fever-free without the assistance of medication for at least 24 hours. Classrooms are being sanitized weekly using an electrostatic spray device to disinfect all surfaces.

As is our typical protocol at school, we will continue to monitor the symptoms of students who are absent and/or sent home from school early due to illness.  Should a trend arise that indicates the spread of any virus, we will communicate with our community members accordingly.  We appreciate parents reporting flu-like symptoms to the office when your child must be home due to sickness.

Christ the King has contingency plans prepared for any outbreaks that prompt school closure so that learning may continue at home.  Teachers will communicate by email, FACTS family portal, and Google Classroom about assignments in the event of a closure lasting more than two days. They will use the digital tools students already access at school such as Freckle, Accelerated Math, and online textbooks to maintain progress in the core subject areas.

While it is our hope and prayer that these measures never need to be put into action, we remain committed to your children’s education and reassure you that plans are in place if needed.

Here's one way to learn to see things differently! Christ the King celebrated the school front lawn installation of an abstract sculpture by late Nashville artist Steve Benneyworth. Thank you to the Kovalick family for helping make it happen! Read more about this story here.

Welcome!

Christ the King School

serves God by educating students
within the Catholic tradition of
faith,
academic excellence,
love,
and service.

Christ the King is a PreK-4 through Grade 8 Catholic school that lives this mission daily by valuing each child’s unique gifts, working to help individuals reach their potential spiritually, academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. We accomplish this in a community where students feel a sense of belonging, purpose, and personal safety. The faculty and staff regard their roles as learning leaders who model the motivation, curiosity, respect, and compassion expected of students.

Our mission as a Catholic elementary school is to educate young people in a faith-filled environment that builds discipleship with catechesis, prayer, and worship. Christ the King embodies its vision to establish a strong foundation for academic excellence through attentive instruction and carefully planned application of skills and knowledge, supported by integration of technology and community resources.

CKS offers a variety of opportunities beyond the foundational curriculum to enrich students’ minds, spirits, and bodies. Every grade participates in art, music, Spanish, technology, library, and physical education classes. These classes introduce and reinforce vital skills for students such as teamwork, responsibility, creativity, cooperation, and global awareness. Our graduates have become leaders in the larger community. The school continues to prepare and nurture students to be well-rounded individuals, equipped with honorable habits of heart and mind, who light the way for their generation.
