Christ-King School News

Staff and students enjoyed an extended weekend this past week, only travelling to school for two days. What a full-packed two days they were.

On Nov. 13, students braved the cold, and attended their third swimming lesson. Teachers and students alike are enjoying the shake up to their regular routine, and welcoming all the new challenges they face in the pool.

On Nov. 14, Christ-King dressed in blue for National Diabetes Day; a special thanks to JDRF and Mrs. Zimmerman for providing all students with a set of cool blue shades. Students enjoyed an afternoon of wearing sunglasses indoors to show their support.

On Nov. 16, Christ-King Catholic Church held Mass in honour of Education Sunday. It was a time in which everyone celebrated all Catholic educators, and thanked them for their dedication and hard work. It was wonderful to have so many community members come join the Mass, which many students from Christ-King Catholic School participated in. From greeting at the doors, singing in choir, being altar servers, and leading the readings, Christ-King students were the first to honour our teachers.

Father Don focused on the importance of using your talents that God has given you, and not burying them away from the world. He instructed to not waste your talents, as they are given to bring glory to our Creator. Teachers should be especially  thanked, as they use their talents to cultivate the talents of others.

On a daily basis, the staff at Christ-King spend hours encouraging, pushing, and applauding every student within their classroom. They inspire us when we slip, and celebrate when we achieve. Each one brings a special talent to the teaching team at Christ-King, making our school a wonderful place of growth, love, and family.

Teachers were given a special blessing by Father Don, and were invited to join other parishioners after Mass for coffee and snacks. A big thank-you to Miss Delhommeau for organizing and practicing with all volunteer students to make Education Sunday such a success!

Report cards will be heading home on Friday, November 21. Parent-teacher interviews will follow on Thursday, Nov. 27. Stay tuned Stettler.

Classroom Sneak Peak

Looking into the Grade 8/9 class of Christ-King, we see a lot of hard work and accomplishments taking place. In Language, the junior highs are beginning a fun unit of debating. They will be using formal structured debates to discuss many issues that their generation faces. In Religion, they just finished their final project on the 7 Gifts of the Holy Spirit. Students made a visual presentation with explanations of each gift, and qualities and occupations that fit in each category.
