The yearly swimming lessons for Christ-King officially kicked off on Nov 4. Students from Kindergarten to Grade 6 head to the Stettler Recreation Centre every Tuesday and Thursday to practice their swimming skills during their 45-minute classes. All students are enjoying lessons so far – it is the highlight of the school week!
The Family Dance took place on Thursday, Nov. 6. There was a great turn out of families and friends – what a successful night. The music had everyone dancing, the food was fantastic, and the silent auction kept everyone on their toes.
A big thanks to Michelle Wyness and her team for organizing the night. Thank you to everyone who came; we hope to see you again next year.
The Remembrance Day assembly took place on Nov. 7. Christ-King welcomed Stettler Legion members, who came and talked about the importance of remembering and about how the younger Canadians were the ones who volunteered for the wars. It reminded students to not only remember past sacrifices on November 11, but always.
To remember the fallen soldiers in World War I and II, Christ-King students wore red. The Grade 4/5 class did a wonderful job hosting the assembly and welcoming our guests from the Legion. Thank you to Mr. Jarmin, who played the trumpet during the two minutes of silence.
Catholic Education Sunday will be held on Nov.16. Students will be hosting the entire Mass at Christ-King Catholic Church. This will include the readings, choir, greeting, and altar serving.
Thank you to Miss. Delhommeau and all the students who have volunteered their time to make this Sunday a great experience. We invite everybody to come and join us, as we recognize and thank the teachers that give their time to make our school so wonderful.
In the upcoming weeks, Christ-King students look forward to the start of basketball and the start of Advent concert practice. Report cards are going home on Nov.21, and parent-teacher interviews are on Nov. 27, which will make November a busy month.
Stay tuned, Stettler!
Classroom Sneak Peak
Looking into the Grade 6/7 class, taught by Miss Kroes, you would see a lot of hard work happening. With many units coming to a close, such as earth science and Greek mythology, students are looking forward to the beginning of their evidence and investigation unit.
All junior high students are also looking forward to the drama and art options starting at the end of November.
