CHRIST THE KING SCHOOL WILL NOT RE-OPEN FOR THE 2015-2016 SCHOOL YEAR.
Despite our best efforts in fundraising, marketing and investing money into the school in an effort to create an excellent, safe, modern learning environment we find ourselves in the difficult and undesirable position of having to close the school.
The decision to close our parish school does not take away the importance of pursuing a Catholic education. Our sincere hope is that you choose one of the other nearby Catholic schools, such as: St. Ann School in Raritan; Immaculate Conception School in Somerville; St. Matthias School in Somerset; and St. Bernard of Clairvaux in Bridgewater (Pre-K and Kindergarten only) for your family.
Today is a time to say “Thank You” to those who tried to make our school the best it could be.
to the Christ the King parishioners and pastors, who build CTK School, supported with countless hours of work and their financial commitment. Thank You
to Bernardine and Felician Sisters who provided administrative support for many years.
to the families of Christ the King School who truly see the value in, and are committed to, providing a Catholic education for their children, even if it means making some sacrifice. We appreciate all the work you have done.
I would also like to say Thank You
to our competent and caring school principal, Mrs. Bensen, along with all of our dedicated teachers and staff, who have worked so hard and have been so committed to the school. They are to be commended for their individual efforts and for their collective dedication to the children.
to Diocesan Department of Education, who was working closely with the school assisting during the closing process.
I’m proud of our school, and grateful to God for the impact it has had upon our students and theirs families. At the same time I’m confidently trusting God to provide for and guide the children, families and staff of CTK School as they look to the future.
Please know that you are always in my prayers especially during this very difficult time. No matter where you go, I know you will do well as you have your roots here at CTK School. Confident in God’s providence may He bless you all.
In Christ the Redeemer,
Rev. Stan Slaby, C.Ss.R.
