Christ-King Celebrates Thanksgiving

Junior high has first dance coming up soon

Submitted by Hannah Canlas CKCS Grade 9 Student

With CKCS already in their first week of October, students and teachers await eagerly as they have a lot of exciting events happening in this month of fall.

Christ-King had their first snow day of the year on October 2. Busses were cancelled and students were encouraged to only come to school if it was safe for them to be able to. More than half of the students missed school. A huge thank you to those who helped clear roads, restore power to our CKCS families who were affected.

On October 4th, CKCS celebrated Thanksgiving by having a Faith Friends Thanksgiving celebration and feast. At the celebration, both students and teachers got a lesson on how fortunate we are to be living a good life with food, shelter, and family, but are never truly thankful as we often forget how lucky we are (which is the reason why we celebrate Thanksgiving). While at the feast, students got together with their Faith Friends and enjoyed a free Thanksgiving meal consisting of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, juice boxes, and apple crisp for dessert. We all ate in the foyer of the school together which really promoted our school’s close-knit “family” feel. The school would like to give a huge thank you to Mrs. Kennedy and the other parent volunteers for preparing a delicious lunch for everyone.

Christ-King’s volleyball players played against Erskine on October 4th. The boys team won two straight sets, then later played some more games for fun.

October 6 to 9th was a long weekend for CKCS for Thanksgiving.

Cross Country Club runners look forward to their first race at Circle Square Ranch on October 11th.

Everyone at Christ-King looks forward to Redneck/Camo Day on October 13, it will be the S.W.A.T. team’s third Spirit Day to host. The Grade 2 class currently holds the Spirit Day Trophy as they won the previous Spirit Day (which was Orange Day). The whole school is excited to see who will grab the trophy next!

Junior high students look forward to their first junior high dance of the year on Friday, October 20th. School invites have been mailed and plans are underway within SWAT to make the dance a success! It will run from 7-10 p.m. and admission will be $5. More details to follow.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
