Christ-King went out on a bang on their last week of October as they celebrated Halloween!
On October 19, the Kindergarten class took a field trip to Central Vision where they learned about eyes (such as as taking care of our eyes, the parts of the eye, and what an eye exam with an eye doctor would be like). They all enjoyed the trip and were each given a little treat bag before they left as a souvenir.
Starting last week, the KinderKids starting coming to school full time, meaning that they now go to school all day everyday, just like the older kids from grades 1-9. Up to this point they have been learning all about each other and what school is about and adjusting to their new routines.
On October 27, Black and Orange Day was hosted by the S.W.A.T. Squad to gear up for Halloween. Everybody was encouraged to wear black and orange on that particular day to give their class a chance to snatch the Spirit Day Trophy. The Grade 1 class won the Spirit Day trophy for the most participation and enthusiasm.
Halloween day was jam packed for CKCS. Before the annual Halloween parade in the afternoon, students were treated to a Halloween Faith Friend Feast where they had turkey soup and a yogurt drink for lunch. Older kids were given a challenge before eating, though. Instead of being given spoons for their soups, they were given random utensils such as thongs, measuring spoons, and ladles to try to consume their soups with! It was a time of great food and laughter!
Everyone at CKCS showed off their costumes at the Halloween parade after the feast. Everybody looked great as they marched in their house teams and did a school-wide dance to the “Monster Mash”.
The Pie a Teacher Fundraiser was held after the Halloween parade. All students who had bought a ticket went into the draw for each teacher. The teacher chose a name and that particular student put a pie plate of chocolate pudding and whip cream in their teacher’s face! Luckily, teachers were given garbage bag ponchos and a chance to clean up afterwards before their own class Halloween parties.
Catholic Education Sunday will be on November 5. The special mass will be held in honor of all the amazing educators at Christ-King. Students who volunteered to be at Mass on that specific day were given a particular job to do (such as be in choir, be a reader, etc.). All are welcome to join.
CKCS Chargers look forward to a volleyball tournament on November 7, which will be held at Vermillion.
Christ-King will be having their Remembrance Day celebration on November 9. It will be held in the school’s gymnasium at 10:30am. Everyone is welcome to join.
