All invited to join Thanksgiving at Christ King on Thursday, no school Friday

Prize winner – Christ King School principal Sheldon Gallagher presents a Terry Fox t-shirt to Jeremy Kirk for running the most laps during the annual Terry Fox Run.

Last week, students and staff at Christ King School ran to raise money for cancer research in memory of Terry Fox. Prizes were awarded to top runners in each class. Thanks to the parents who supported us by providing water, muffins and orange slices.

The kindergarten and Grade 1 class is learning about seasonal changes and the season of fall. We are also excited to be piloting a new occupational therapy project with Alberta Health in this classroom.

The Grade 2 class is studying liquids in science and will be leading our Thanksgiving celebration this week. The Grade 3-4 class is studying Alberta this year. We recently finished a unit on exploring the land and are beginning a new unit on Alberta’s fossil heritage.

The Grade 5/6 class is learning about the geography and regions of Canada and will be starting D.A.R.E tomorrow. This is the first year we will be offering D.A.R.E. in our school. The D.A.R.E (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program gives kids the life skills they need to avoid involvement with drugs, gangs, and violence.

The Grade 7, 8, and 9 class has been studying the mix and flow of matter and learning about buoyancy, density and viscosity. The junior high class is also leading the school this week in a new program called Wellness Wednesday where we focus on different aspects of wellness throughout the year.

We will be having a Thanksgiving celebration on Thursday, Oct. 7. Everyone is welcome to join us at 12:30 p.m. at the school. There will be no school for students on Friday, Oct. 8 as teachers will be in Vermilion for a professional development day.

Happy Thanksgiving!
