Christ-King participated in Moustache Spirit Day on November 28.

Christ-King wraps up November

The last week of November proved to be a very busy week for all of Christ-King.

By Elli Anderson & Abbey Bohn, Grade 8 Students

The last week of November proved to be a very busy week for all of Christ-King. With the ending of certain events, and the beginning of others, December is shaping up to be an eventful month.

Swimming lessons wrapped up on Nov. 25. Students enjoyed a last fun day at the pool. A big thanks to the Stettler Recreation Centre, and the many lifeguards that took time to work with our students. Thank you to Mr. Wik for organizing the event, and to all the teachers for being so flexible. All the students look forward to returning again next year.

The Grade 1 class, accompanied by a handful of other students, travelled to the Stettler Community Hall on Nov. 26, to perform for the Festival of Lights Seniors’ Tea. Performing to the theme of “It happened in the Country,” students dressed in their cowboy hats and bandanas to bring the theme to life. Despite some stage fright, the students did a wonderful job. A big thanks to Mrs. Bohn for organizing and practicing for the event.

Parent-teacher interviews were on Nov. 27. Despite the bad weather, the majority of parents made it to see the school and their child’s teacher. Baked goods and babysitting services were offered by junior high students as a fundraiser for future dances. Thank you to all the students who helped, and all parents who visited. Your continued support is always appreciated.

On Nov. 28, Spirit Squad encouraged Christ-King to show their support for ‘Movember’ by having a Moustache Spirit Day. Staff and students came to school displaying all manners of support. From moustache inspired clothing, to fake moustaches; everyone had a blast dressing up.

Also on Nov. 28 was Christ-King’s first ever Dance Party Friday. Led by Spirit Squad, the entire school went to the gym at lunch recess to do some Zumba-like routines. Helped by Miss Kroes (Grade 6/7) and Miss Keessar (Grade 2/3), Spirit Squad choreographed dance moves to two different songs. Students had a blast moving and grooving and avoiding the cold outside. Spirit Squad will be hosting a Dance Party every Friday for the rest of the year.

Advent concert practice continues as Christ-King gears up for the concert on Dec. 17. Classes are now practicing their songs, and costumes are being put together. Teachers and students alike are getting excited to see the production come together. Stay tuned Stettler.
