Nine junior-high students joined Liana Bohn and Veronica Pinkoski on Oct. 18 and travelled to Red Deer to participate in the Archdiocese Edmonton Youth Rally – Live Simple #BeSaints. Held in St. Thomas Aquinas School, the day was led by Colm Lyene, the coordinator of the Youth Ministry office in Saskatoon. Students listened to inspirational discussions about embracing differences, enjoyed great food, prayer time, zumba, and praise and worship time.

On Oct. 20, two teachers took a trip to Wainwright. Mrs. Bohn and Mrs. Pinkoski, went to listen to a speaker for one of the committees they are a part of. As part of the school’s Health and Wellness Action Plan, the two staff members went to review our school plan with other East Central Schools.

“I enjoyed listening to him talk, the only thing that wasn’t as much fun was the two hour ride” said the Grade 1teacher.

Another exciting event that took place at Christ-King this week was a visit from East Central’s Superintendent, Mr. McCormack and East Central’s Board Chair, Mr. Brady on Oct. 20. Three students from our 8/9 classroom; Kirklind Albisser, Nic Juhasz, and Abbey Bohn, toured them around to the classrooms.

“We are overwhelmed by the friendliness of the students and teachers at Christ-King,” said Mr. McCormack, and Mr. Brady. All staff and students felt very excited to have them in our school, and enjoyed sharing about all the learning and activities that were taking place in their classrooms.

On Wednesday, Oct. 22, Christ-King was proud to showcase our first Leader in Me Assembly of the year, led by our Grade 2/3s. During this time, they sang the Leader in Me version of “Dynamite” to review the 7 Habits for the entire school. Decked out in their sunglasses and cool hats, the Grade 2/3s had a blast handing out certificates to recognize other students who had demonstrated leadership skills this past month.

October 24 was supposed to be Black and Orange day at Christ-King. However, due to the devastating events in Ottawa, the school rallied together and participated in National Red Day instead. It was inspiring to see a sea of red in the halls, representing our support of our fallen soldiers and our Canadian pride.

Classroom Sneak Peak

The Grade 3s have a wonderful class in Christ-King this year. They are currently finishing their pattern unit in math. In the afternoons, when they join the Grade 2s, they are gearing up to start their hearing and sound science unit, and continue to learn about other countries in social.
