Christ King students to experience in-line skating program on March 17

With February over and March happening, everyone at Christ King has a lot to be happy about.

CHRIST KING CATHOLIC SCHOOL — With February over and March happening, everyone at Christ King has a lot to be happy about as March holds a lot of fun events for the school.

HOJA performed at Christ King on Thursday, Feb. 23. HOJA is “a concert presentation that enhances the arts curriculum, as HOJA encourages students by example and through participation to get involved in music and drama. It includes a powerful message at the end, as the singers relate heartfelt personal stories, encouraging students to believe in themselves and teaching them three simple steps to achieve their dreams.” Students and staff alike loved watching the acappella group perform.

Christ King celebrated Ash Wednesday on March 1. Father Don came to the school’s gymnasium to do the Ash Wednesday Service. Students welcomed the start of Lent season and remembered that over the next 40 days, giving up something that’s important to us is a chance to draw closer to God.

Ryan Laird visited Christ King and presented his Bigger Than That presentation Thursday, March 2. He performed some of his songs such as “Hey Ashley”, “Bigger Than That”, and “I’m Your Man” a popular one that many have heard on the radio. Ryan also talked to the students about one of his biggest goals, which is to help inspire students to be able to rise above negativity, be the bigger person in any situation, and do actions of kindness to help others. He used his own personal life examples to show that any ‘regular’ person can achieve their goals if they don’t give up. Ryan himself pursued his love of music and used a creative means (a billboard with a shout out to Taylor Swift in Nashville) to achieve his own success. His interactive presentation brought numerous students to the stage to share their own personal goals and plans for the future.

Also exciting was the Charger Boys taking second place in the Pool A Cara Finals on March 4. CKCS was extremely proud of this success and how the boys performed at CWAJHAA in Castor. There too the CKCS boys had a good run, but lost in the bronze game to Gus Wetter.

There was no school for students on March 9 and 10, as teachers travelled to Edmonton for Teacher Convention. We hope everyone had a safe and wonderful time.

Christ King will be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day on March 17 by wearing green.

Jose Fazio will be bringing in his Western Canada In-Line Skating Program to Christ King on March 17. This will certainly be a fun and unique opportunity for everyone at Christ King to learn about in-line skating.

Also upcoming is report cards going home on March 17 and student-led conferences taking place on March 23.
