Two private schools in the neighborhood are hosting open houses on Saturday, Jan. 26.

Christ the King Catholic School, 415 N. 117th St., is hosting its open house for preschool through 8th grade at 4:30 p.m. in the Fitzgerald Room, followed by Bingo Night at 6 p.m.

This is a great chance to learn about the outstanding programs at CKS, meet current families, and learn about the All School Renovation that will take place in the summer of 2013. Christ the King offers challenging core academics, an award winning visual arts program, and class sizes that promote differentiated learning. Start fresh with Christ the King!

Family Bingo Night will follow Open House in the gym. All families are welcome to play!

KapKa Cooperative School, 510 N. 49th St., just south of Woodland Park Zoo, is hosting its open house from 2-4 p.m. on Jan. 26.

KapKa is a thriving learning community of children, their families, and teachers. At KapKa, we believe the role of the teachers is to create an academically stimulating environment where learning happens naturally and in a variety of ways that include both independent study and team projects. Parents have an integral role in running the school and provide support in the classrooms . The experience, commitment, and creativity of our professional teachers, combined with the talent and dedication of our parents, make KapKa a place of joyful exploration and a close, caring community.

Founded in 1988 by Ladell Black, former Peace Corps worker and long-time teacher, the school was named KapKa, an English approximation of a Klamath word for a small evergreen tree, to represent the natural growth that occurs when a child is rooted in a nurturing environment.
