It was another exciting week at Christ-King School.

On Friday, Nov. 6, Mrs. Broekhuizen, Mr. Faught and Mrs. Garez travelled to Edmonton by school bus with students from grades 5-8. Students toured the Legislative buildings and saw a ballet performance of Romeo and Juliet.

Back at the school, Friday also saw our monthly assembly. Miss Soldan recognized students and staff who celebrated their birthdays in October with the Happy Birthday song and a pencil, and reading prizes were given out to students for most number of minutes read and reading enthusiasm. As well, students were acknowledged for their efforts at “Building a Better World”, the theme for our school year.

A follow up math night was held at the school on Thursday, Nov. 4. Ron Lindsay, AISI Coordinator for East Central Alberta Catholic Schools, presented aspects of the new math curriculum to parents to help them become more familiar with work their children bring home.

Members of the Royal Canadian Legion visited our school on Monday for a Remembrance Day celebration to share with the students the history of the freedom we enjoy today. Our school celebration took place on Tuesday, November 10 and Mr. Phil Jarmin played the Last Post on his trumpet. There will be no school on Wednesday, November 11, 2009, lest we forget.

Swimming lessons will start on Nov. 16 for all our students. Report cards will be coming home on Nov. 13 and parent-teacher interviews are scheduled for Nov. 18. Child care will be available that night. We’re looking forward to seeing you there.
