On Nov. 9, the Stettler Royal Canadian Legion came to CKCS to assist our Grade 4/5 class in leading our Remembrance Day Assembly. All staff and students wore red and used the time to remember those who made the greatest sacrifice of all, to give us our freedom. Mr. Kennedy also spoke on the history of “The Last Post” and why it was so monumental to November 11. A big thank you to Mr. Jarmin who plays “The Last Post” for us every year.
Nov. 17 brought one of the most fun times of the school year to CKCS. Kindergarten to Grade 6 began swimming lessons at the Stettler swimming pool. Every Tuesday, and Thursday, the elementary grades travelled to the recreational centre for their own designated pool time. All students were very excited to begin, and are looking forward to the next three weeks of swimming lessons.
CKCS went to our monthly mass on Nov. 18. A big thank you to Father Don, Miss. Delhommeau and the CKCS Choir for making our November Mass a success.
Also on Wednesday, auditions were held for CKCS’ annual Advent Concert. Parts for the play will be assigned this week. Many students worked hard to audition well. With all the talent that showed up, the concert is looking very promising this year.
Students also took home their first term report cards on Friday, Nov. 13. Parent-teacher interviews will be taking place on Nov. 26.
