Chargers going to CWAJHAA

Gr. 4 class topped Western Day at CKCS

By Hannah Canlas, Grade 9 Student

With November coming quickly to a close, CKCS reminisces about some exciting memories and look forward to some upcoming events.

Students took report cards home on November 17. They were followed by Parent Teacher interviews on November 21 and 22. During this time, parents were given a time slot to meet with their child’s teacher to discuss their achievements and term one and goals for the remainder of the year.

The S.W.A.T. Squad hosted Western Day on November 17. Students, teachers, and TAs were encouraged to wear whatever cowboy or cowgirl attire that they had. The Grade 4 class took the win with the most participation and enthusiasm.

CKCS’ Chargers (boys team) will be heading to CWAJHAA on November 18 which will be hosted in Lacombe. The team, along with Coach Lozeau is looking forward to this final event which will wrap up our volleyball season for the year.

Students from Kindergarten to Grade 3 have been doing great at swimming lessons. The rest of the dates for swimming lessons are on November 21, 28, and 30. Students travel to the Stettler Recreation Centre during the school day with their teachers to participate in their lessons.

Advent Concert auditions were held on November 16. Grades 6-9 were invited to memorized a small characters part from the play and recite it for our Advent Concert organizer Mrs. Armstrong. Parts will be assigned later this week, and practices will soon begin. Every year CKCS looks forward to their annual Advent Concern which will be held on December 20 this year. More details to follow.

Alberta Opera will be performing at Christ-King on November 23rd. It is an hour long production of “Jack and the Beanstalk” which will include actors, student participation and music. CKCS is looking forward to hosting this unique performance!
