Legion visits Christ King School

Members of the Royal Canadian Legion visited our school on Tuesday for a Remembrance Day celebration to share with the students the history of the freedom we enjoy today.

Thanks to the Legion for their tireless efforts to ensure we never forget. Our school celebration took place on Wednesday, Nov. 10 and was led by the Grade 2 class.

Mr. Phil Jarmin played the Last Post on his trumpet, the K/1 class joined the Grade 2s singing “Peace Hope and Harmony,” and the Grade 3-4 class recited In Flanders Fields. The celebration ended with a touching video presentation created by Mrs. Elissa Hellekson’s sister, Kelly.

Students are excited to begin swimming lessons, which will start on Nov. 16 for all our students. We will be swimming six times on Tuesdays and Thursdays over the next three weeks. Parent-teacher interviews are scheduled for Nov. 17. Child care will be available that night. We’re looking forward to seeing you there.

Our school dance will be on Nov. 18. We will also be holding a “Time, Talent and Treasure” silent auction. There have been some interesting donations – come with your family, check it out and support your school!

We have some exciting news: Christ King School sports teams have a new name. The whole school community had the opportunity to vote for their favourite and the winner is: Christ King Chargers. We will be looking for a logo to go along with our new name and invite students, staff and parents to submit possible logos.

We will be celebrating the Feast Day of Christ the King with mass on Friday, Nov. 19 and a turkey hot lunch to follow at the school.

Everyone is welcome to join us.
