Raise the Paddle Auction Item: New and Improved Intercom System.
The one area that we are lacking in fully funding is the Raise the Paddle for the new intercom system. I suspect that this was in great part because of the issues with the audio and visual set up. Check out this link so that you can learn more about this great need. If you can give a donation to help us meet our goal and get the upgraded system installed for the 2022 -2023 school year, we would be eternally grateful.
The auction raised $13,000 for this project! We are almost halfway to our goal of $27,000! Check out the following video for a humorous explanation of why this item is so very needed (or see the recap below):
Each wireless classroom unit costs $410
There are additional costs for:
Base station: $1,500
10 year FCC license: $500
Adding in misc costs for shipping, taxes and other small items, it brings the total ask to $27,000. We already have $13,000- we just need your help to finish this fundraising effort!
Confident in the generosity of our school and parish families, we are asking for donations to raise the remaining $14,000. A donation of any amount ($10, $25, $50!) will help us bring this much needed update to Christ the King Catholic School. For those who are able, a donation of $410 covers an individual intercom unit entirely!

Thank you for your donation!
The current intercom and bell system is notably outdated. There are mechanical issues related to age and accessibility/safety issues due to its vintage-nature. Our goal is to raise $27,000 to replace it with a wireless system that includes new PA units in each classroom and throughout the school campus. Bells will once again be synchronized with the classroom clocks. Teachers won’t need to use their personal devices to talk privately with the office. Every classroom will be able to hear the announcements. Most importantly, this will create a more reliable school-wide communication system, creating a safer school in case of emergency.
