All of the students and teachers have a full to-do list over this upcoming season. With the Christmas concert coming soon, report cards going home, and parent-teacher interviews this past week, everyone has been very busy.

On Nov. 26, we had parent-teacher Interviews. Parents of our students came and met their children’s teachers. Thank you to all parents who came for their scheduled interviews. It was wonderful to showcase all of CKCS students’ progress over term one.

CKCS also participated in Festival of Lights this year. Mrs. Bohn, the Grade 1 teacher spearheaded the tree decoration with help from the Grade 8/9 class. She also organized a singing production at the Seniors’ Tea, which is a Festival of Lights fundraiser. Along with Abbey Bohn and Kirklind Albisser as the Christmas Story narrators, all the kids sang beautifully. Thank you for all the donations for our Festival of Lights tree and a happy week to you all.

With this beautiful snow, CKCS has also had a beautiful start to basketball season. Coaching the girls is our Grade 4/5 teacher, Kristy Gulak. Coach Matt will be coaching the boys’ team once again this year. Everyone is ready for a great year of basketball and we can’t wait to get started. Right now the girls’ team is fundraising for a tournament in Rocky Mountain. They are selling Scentsy. Currently the boys are practicing Tuesday and Wednesdays, and girls practice on Monday. Let’s get ready for another fabulous season of basketball. Go Chargers go!

Currently teachers and students are very excited for our upcoming Advent concert. This year our play is based around a wacky teacher, Mrs. Strickland, who must have the perfect Christmas story play. But with her clumsy stage hands messing up the costumes, everything has gone wrong. Our fabulous play will be run by our Kindergarten teacher, Miss Delhommeau. We are all excited and can’t wait for Dec. 16 to share our production with Stettler. More details to follow.
