Student volunteers actively contribute to the school community serving each other and welcoming those new to the school.
The Student Council is an active group of student leaders elected by their peers, and is comprised of the Executive Council and Homeroom Representatives. Guided by faculty advisers, the council sets up spirit activities and service projects throughout the year. Examples of activities conducted by the Student Council include donut sales and out of uniform days to collect donations for different causes, including Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and The Covenant House, a non-profit charity that serves homeless youth.
National Junior Honor Society
Students in grades six, seven and eight are eligible for selection into the National Junior Honor Society based on scholarship, leadership, citizenship, service, character, and faculty recommendation. The NJHS induction ceremony is held during the third quarter and again at graduation for qualifying eighth graders. To qualify for an invitation to apply, candidates must maintain an overall grade point average of ninety percent (90%) in all subjects and must have an overall "A" in conduct and performance.
Fifth and sixth grade student volunteers are paired with incoming kindergarteners and first graders to ease their transition into elementary school. At the beginning of the year, Guardian Angels meet the younger children each morning before school and guide them to their classrooms. They continue to provide a familiar face to their young friends throughout the year.
Power over Prejudice
Under the direction of the school counselor, 7th grade students who participate in the Power over Prejudice program attend Georgia Tech's Prejudice Awareness Conference and devise a program to heighten awareness of prejudices that exist in our global and local societies for students in grades 3-7 at CKS. 7th grade students may apply for one of the ten positions and are selected by a committee to attend the seminar and prepare an in-school follow-up program.
No new student is a stranger on the first day of school at Christ the King School! Student Ambassadors in second through eighth grades extend welcoming greetings to newly accepted students well in advance of opening day through letters of introduction which they mail to new students during the summer break. Many Student Ambassadors and their families plan outings with new families as a way to welcome them to the CKS community. Early in August, Student Ambassadors and new students meet at school for a get-together with tours, activities and refreshments. Student Ambassadors continue to extend this special welcome through the first few weeks of school.
Student Ambassadors also act as tour guides for prospective parents at the annual Open House and conduct individual tours for prospective students throughout the school year.
Serving on Safety Patrol at Christ the King School is a fun and challenging service. Safety Patrol helps create a safe environment for all our students at school. Student Safety Patrols enhance enforcement of drop-off and pick-up procedures at school by increasing safety for students and traffic flow efficiency for parents. Safety Patrol is rewarded with hot chocolate on very cold mornings and a party at the end of their service. Students applying for Safety Patrol must:
Be committed to serving two quarters as a Safety Patrol, either in the morning, afternoon, or combination of both.
Maintain a C academic average the entire school year. If any student's average falls below a C academically, they will be dismissed from Safety Patrol.
Maintain an A conduct grade. If any student's conduct grade drops below an A, they will be dismissed from Safety Patrol.
