CKCS students have had a busy September

The first month of school year has been filled with some great activities for CKCS students.

With CKCS already in their third week of school, they have a lot to share as they have had a lot of exciting events already in just their few weeks of school.

On Sept. 15, Christ King celebrated Traffic Safety Day, which was hosted by the S.W.A.T. team. Both students and teachers learned a lot from this fun day, including the many ways of exiting a bus, what both a fire truck and a police vehicle look like, and so much more regarding traffic safety.

Christ King had their first Mass with their new priest, Father Mirek, on Sept. 20.

Also, on that day CKCS had their annual Open House, though this year was a bit different. Previously, Open House was a time when parents or guardians could come in to see their child’s classrooms, lockers, and meet their teachers. This year, during Open House teachers had their own presentation at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. Parents were invited to hear the principal, Mr. LeMaistre speak. He spoke about events going on at the school, including Christ King’s new breakfast program, FOIP forms, parent volunteers, how the ‘Remind’ app works to know what is going on at CKCS, and so much more regarding the school.

That day, Chris King had their first annual Hot Lunch for the year, which was Taco in a Bag, a personal favourite of many of the school students and teachers. Many people ordered this popular dish as it was free!

CKCS has recently acquired a new sponsor this year, Tornado Global Hydrovacs. A huge thank you goes out to Mike Lloyd for his generous contribution.

Christ King’s annual Book Fair will be held at the school foyer from Sept. 20-27. It is always a great fundraiser organized by the parent council.

On Sept. 22, CKCS had their first annual Spirit Day, which was Blue and Yellow/CKCS Gear Day. Spirit Days at Christ King are hosted by the S.W.A.T. team, and they are events where both students and teachers are encouraged to wear specific clothing on a specific day. The class with the most students wearing the encouraged clothing win the Spirit Day Trophy, which is a trophy that the class who wins gets to display in their classroom until the next winner – that win the next Spirit Day – gets the trophy.

Overall, it has been a great month and CKCS looks forward to their upcoming events of Terry Fox Run and Orange Day.
