So far the wonderful weather we have been receiving here in Stettler has been very cold. Alberta is called “Wild Rose Country,” when really it should be called, “Arctic Rose Country.” But when the cold weather comes, so does the annual event of The Festival of Lights. This week on Wednesday, November 26, the grade one class and an assortment of other students will be singing at the Seniors Tea. Everybody has worked hard, including the grade one teacher, Mrs. Bohn. She has spent many hours perfecting everything. The theme will be from one of our last Christmas concerts: “It All Happened in the Country.” We hope to see lots of familiar faces.
Swimming lessons have been going well. Our gym teacher, Mr. Wik, has been taking Kindergarten to Grade 6 to the Stettler Recreation Center twice a week.
“I am having fun!” said one of our younger students.
Another big thanks to all Christ-King teachers for reorganizing their lesson plans for this activity every week.
The Spirit Day for Nov. 21 was Jersey Day. The students were told to wear their favourite sports or team jerseys to school, and that is exactly what they did. Many different teams were supported in the school, and there was great effort showed by all classes. Students always look forward to upcoming Spirit days!
Mass was held on Nov. 21. Father Don gave an inspiring homily about our Mother Mary. He asked the younger children who Mary’s mother was, Saint Anne and Jocome. We thank him, and our wonderful parish for joining us.
Practice for Advent Concert this year is in full swing for the upcoming Christmas season. The concert this year is titled “Christmas Hang-Ups.” It is about a group of ornaments trying to find the true meaning of Christmas, and welcoming all different types of ornaments into the world of Christmas spirit. Students are working hard at memorizing lines, and classes are practicing the upbeat songs. Miss. Delhommeau is doing a wonderful job of directing it. We all can’t wait to see it come together.
Classroom Sneak Peak
This week we are sneaking a peak into our Kindergarten classroom. Jaclyn Delhommeau and her students have been working very hard. The Kinder-Kids have been busy learning all the basics such as writing, counting, patterning, and starting their Advent Concert song. The Kindergarteners are really enjoying Christ-King and all it has to offer.
