CHRIST KING CATHOLIC SCHOOL — As November starts, Christ King has a lot to prepare for as report cards go home, parent-teacher interviews take place, and many more school-related activities during this month.

Christ King students had their Remembrance Day break on from Nov. 9-11.

When the school celebrated Remembrance Day, they were joined by the Stettler Legion and other community members as the Grade 4/5 class led the event.

Volleyball is over for the season. In the coming weeks the volleyball teams will be doing a wind-up where they will be going up against a parent/teacher team in a friendly match.

Auditions for Christ King’s Advent concert begun this Monday, Nov. 14, where students from grades 5-9 can choose to audition for a part of their choice. Student that choose to audition will be given a script, where they will be able to choose the part that they will audition for, they will then practise that part, and will act their part in front of teachers. It’s a very nerve racking time of the year.

On this past Monday, Nov. 14 and the following Monday, Nov.21, some of the grades 4-6 students will be heading over to the Stettler Elementary School to play in a volleyball-type game called “Neucombe Ball.” Mrs. Turre took the students over to the school this past Monday, while Mrs. Gulak will be taking the students over to the school on the next. Both games will take place after school hours.

Tuesday, Nov. 15 was the start of the swimming lesson dates for students from Kindergarten to Grade 6. Nov. 17, 22, 24, 29, and Dec. 1 are the rest of the dates for swimming lessons. Students will be bused to the Stettler Recreation Centre for the lessons.

Also coming up later this week are report cards for students, which will be going home on Friday, Nov. 18. Parent-teacher interviews will take place on Nov. 23 and 24. Face-to-face ministries will be having a special performance at the school on Thursday, Nov. 24. Finally, Christ King students will be learning about the importance of Farm Safety on Wednesday, Nov. 30.
