On Oct. 15, the Christ-King Chargers faced off against Big Valley Bulldogs and Erskine Extremes. Both teams showed huge improvement, winning sets, and working well not only as individuals, but as a team. The girls conceded both games, and the boys walked away with one victory. The next matches will take place on Oct. 22, in Donalda. Go Chargers go!

On Oct. 16, Mrs. Gulak and Mrs. Van Straten took four students to Red Deer for a Health Initiative presentation. Nicole Kennedy, Madison Jarmin, Brody Nichols, Jeileigh DeWitt were gone the whole day, listening to a speaker.

“I really enjoyed having a day off from school, and learning how to stay healthy and fit,” said one of chosen students that went.

The students are now busy creating a presentation to show their fellow peers, to share the knowledge and strategies they gained from the trip.

October Mass was on Oct. 17. Students walked over to Christ-King Catholic Church, and listened to Father Don talk about the importance of living what you preach and setting a good Christian example with your actions. He also referred back to the Thanksgiving season, and what is most important to be thankful for every day.

Christ-King staff and students showed their school spirit on Friday, Oct. 17. Everyone displayed all the blue and yellow in their closet by wearing our school colours for the day. Thank you to all the students who participated. Everyone looked great, and it was exciting to have everyone join in the fun.

The junior high classes had their very first dance on Friday, Oct.17. They had a great turnout and many students from different schools decided to come and join the fun. Thank you to Kim Van Straten, Tammy Strandquist, and Hannah Van Straten for working the concession. A big thank you to the teachers that came to supervise and rock out on the dance floor as well; Kristy Gulak, Tara Kroes, and Kayla Keessar. Finally, a huge thank you to the wonderful DJ, Colin Fisher, who donated his time and services. We really appreciated it.

Our Christ-King Family Dance will take place in November.

Stay tuned Stettler.

Classroom Sneak Peak

In the Grade 2 classroom, taught by Miss Keessar, some exciting things are happening. This week, these students will be hosting our first Leader in Me Assembly for the year on Wednesday, Oct. 22. In the meantime, they are busy learning about rocks and minerals in science. They are also ‘visiting’ Peru, Ukraine, India, and Tunisia, by studying the daily life of each culture.
