Oh The Places They'll Go - The Class of 2024

Celebrating the Class of 2024! This week was a celebration of our Seniors! Senior Commit Day lasted all week long. On Tuesday, the Seniors cheered on Caroline Savisky and Alexis Daily as they signed their letters of intent to cheer and dance at the University of Kentucky and N C State, respectively, followed by a pizza and cookie lunch provided by the counseling department. They watched the senior commit video in which they proudly announce their plans following graduation. They donned their college attire again on Thursday for photos in front of the Class of 2024 rock. We are so proud of the Class of 2024, and we can't wait to see what you do next!

Mary, we Crown Thee Queen of Heaven

Queen of Heaven and perfect follower of Christ - Mother Mary, we crown thee with flowers and prayers.

In keeping with CTK tradition, the oldest and youngest female students had the honor of placing a crown of flowers on Mary's head. Special thanks to the Sorority of Mary for planning and leading the activities and to all who brought in the beautiful flowers placed at her feet.

The cast of Seussical.

From the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss to the colorful set design and captivating performances of our talented students, the show is truly a magical experience for all who attend.  The stage comes alive with vibrant colors, infectious energy, and heartwarming moments. Through song and dance, the cast and crew transport audiences to the fantastical world of Seuss, where anything is possible

The play also delivers a powerful message about the sanctity of life and the importance of cherishing every individual, no matter how small. Inspired by the beloved characters and timeless wisdom of Dr. Seuss, the musical celebrates the beauty and value of every person, from the tiniest Who to the mightiest Horton. 

In a world where the dignity of human life is often challenged and debated, Seussical the Musical serves as a poignant reminder of the inherent worth and dignity of every human being. The show reminds us to embrace our differences, stand up for what is right, and protect the most vulnerable among us. 

We are incredibly proud of our cast and crew for their hard work, dedication, and passion for bringing the musical to life on our stage. If you haven't had a chance to see it, don't miss out on this unique opportunity to experience the wonder and talents of our CTK students. Special thanks to the cast and crew, to Mrs. Varricchio for her direction, and to Mr. Hanes for his incredible work on the set and sound.

Exploring the unknown, embarking on their futures, and making memories! The Juniors enjoyed an unforgettable adventure this week as they traveled North on the Junior college trip to Virginia and DC. They visited Virginia Tech, Virginia Military Institute, Roanoke College, Christendom College, and the Catholic University of America in DC. These college visits allow students to get a feel for a variety of college experiences - from military academies to small private colleges and large public universities, students get to explore the endless possibilities awaiting them upon graduation. 

While exploring their futures, these juniors made some special memories too - stopping at the National Air and Space Smithsonian Museum, touring the National Mall monuments after dark, and relaxing playing pool and arcade games at Catholic U. They even ran into CTK alum Joseph Flynn '21 who is currently a student at VMI. 

To the moon and beyond, the world is yours to conquer Crusaders! Special thanks to Dr. Werder and Mrs. Medrano for organizing the trip!
