CKCS Chargers’ Victorious Games

Junior high dance coming up on Oct. 20

Submitted by Hannah Canlas, Grade 9 Student

Christ-King anticipates the many events coming up in the month of October as they move into week three of this fall season.

On October 10, CKCS had their monthly Faith Friends Feast. Older students met their younger student buddies and the entire school had breakfast together in the foyer of the school. Breakfast wraps from Extreme Pita were served. It was a great start back to school after the long weekend.

Cross Country Club runners had their first race at Circle Square Ranch on October 11. While no students came in first place, there were many who were very close and Christ-King is very proud of their runners for doing their best. Evan Bogner, who is one of the runners said, “Out of all the males, Josh DeGuzman came fourth, Carlos Ramos came in eighth, and Evan Bogner came in ninth. We had fun and at the end, it was all worth it.”

On October 11, the CKCS Chargers came out triumphant as both the boys and girls teams won their games against Theresetta. Autumn Wyness, who is on the girls’ team, said, “We tried really hard, which resulted in our win. It was both the first time most of our team tried overhand serving.” Carlos Ramos, who is on the boys’ team, said, “It was fun and all. During our third and fourth games, we started to mess up and just laughed about it, a lot.” Madison Swaren, who is also on the girls team, said, “Our game started off good with the opposite team serving. We stumbled a bit at first and couldn’t seem to return the ball, but eventually we got the hang of it and started to gain some points. One of the very exciting points in the game was when I didn’t think I could save the ball from hitting the floor, so I just stuck my foot out and kicked the ball. I ended up getting the team a point. Another exciting time in the game was when one of our players got an overhand serve for the first time.”

The S.W.A.T. team hosted their third Spirit Day on October 13, which was Redneck/Camo Day. Grade 3 won the Spirit day trophy for the most enthusiasm and participation.

CKCS looks forward to their next hot lunch on October 18. Those who ordered it will be getting chicken wraps, a caesar salad, and a dessert (all for free).

Christ-King’s Picture Day will be on October 17.

Junior-High students look forward to their first junior high dance on October 20. It will be located in the school’s gymnasium and will run from 7 to 10 p.m. There will be an admission fee of $5. Any students in Grade 6 to 9 are invited. They must sign up on their school signup sheet in order to be admitted.
