The goal of the canned food drive is to help students become aware of the growing need for food during difficult economic times as well as having CKS students do their part to contribute to their community. CKS students have a long history of volunteering and service to their community at large. In working with the St. Vincent de Paul Society at Christ the King Parish, they now have a working relationship for a very worthy cause.

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.
