What is a Buddy Day?
A Buddy Day is an opportunity for an 8th grader to experience high school life at Christ the King High School as a CK Royal. Eighth graders are paired up with a CK freshman travelling with him/her throughout the school day. The 8th graders should arrive at CK at 7:45 and report to the Main Office. Dismissal is at the end of 7th period at 1:40. Your parents/guardians can pick you up at the Main Office or you may return home on your own with parental permission.
