Christ-King began the past week with lighting the third candle on the Advent Wreath. The Grade 6/7 class led the Advent Celebration on Dec. 15, illustrating that the third candle represented the joy of the season. The pink candle reminds us to take joy in spreading the word and the love of Jesus.

The hard work of Christ-King students was finally demonstrated in their Advent Concert on Dec. 17. The gymnasium was packed with family, friends, and community members, making the night truly memorable. Main actors Amanda O’Donnell, Elli Anderson, Abbey Bohn, Nicole Kennedy, Madison Swaren, Paige Niehaus, Hannah Van Straten, Brandy Kennedy, Faith Baskey, and Mackenzie Russell, dressed as Christmas tree ornaments, trying to discover the real meaning of the season. All grades participated in singing songs throughout the production. It was a spectacular play, that brought the Christmas spirit to all those who watched. Afterwards, the student’s success was celebrated with refreshments and visiting. A huge thank you goes to Miss. Delhommeau and Mrs. Van Straten for directing, organizing costumes, and keeping everyone organized.

On Dec. 18, Christ-King school participated in a new fundraising event, hosted by the Spirit Squad. Students “bought” their way out of class for $1. All students were then invited to the gym to watch a Christmas movie. The gymnasium was filled with mats, bags of popcorn, and the entire student body! Students had a blast taking a break from their studies to enjoy some relaxing time.

To wrap up the last week of school, Christ-King travelled to Stettler’s retirement homes to sing Christmas carols. Separating into two groups, they trekked to Stettler Hospital and Points West first, before meeting up as a larger group at Willow Creek. Students enjoyed spreading Christmas cheer, and were even treated to cookies and juice at Willow Creek. A big thanks goes to all three locations, for hosting us. It is an annual event that everyone looks forward to!

On Dec. 19, the Ornament Raffle for our brother George wrapped up as well. Over 30 ornaments were raffled off; close to $150 was raised in support of George. Thank you to everyone for their continued support!

Being the last week of school, all students were filled with excitement. “The last few days are always the most wild,” said one junior- high student on Friday. With the final week being so busy, all students were looking forward to sleeping in and spending time with families over the holidays. School resumes on Jan. 5. We can’t wait to see everyone in the New Year. Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Stettler!
