Last week at Christ- King was a blur. With volleyball games, Clay for Kids and planning for our upcoming junior high dance, everyone was sent into a tailspin of excitement.
On Oct. 7, we had a special visitor: Clay for Kids came to our school and made special clay tiles with every student and staff member.
Each grade was called down to the foyer at different times throughout the day, and sat at tables.
Each spot held a lump of clay, which each student created a clay tile from and then designed a unique cross to put on the tile. All of our creations have been taken back to Clay for Kids, where they will be heated in the kilum, and covered with clear lacquer. When completed, the tiles will be brought back to the school and arranged into the shape of a large cross in our foyer. This will demonstrate that even though we are all unique and different, we are also all God’s children. We are very thankful to Clay for Kids for their patience and help in this school project.
Also on Oct. 7, the boys’ and girls’ volleyball teams hosted Donalda for a couple great games. Both Charger teams worked hard, but conceded both games.
On Monday, Oct. 5, the Grade 1s travelled to the Gender residence. They went out to Joe Gendre’s farm to retrieve pumpkins for the weekend. All the kids had a great time, and have an appreciation for all the gifts God provides us with.
This week was also the Thanksgiving Celebration, led by our Grade 3/4 class and choir.
They reminded us that Thanksgiving is a time to look at all the things you have, and thank our Heavenly Father for them.
With Thanksgiving comes the renewal of the gifts God has so graciously given to us. It states in the Bible on verse John 3:16 that “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
When God offered his only Son on the cross to save us from our sins, he also gave us something to live, and be thankful for.
During this season we need to always remember that even in the hardest times, there’s something to be thankful for.
Spirit Squad is also in the process of planning the first junior high dance of the year. The theme for the dance is “Autumn” to celebrate the colourful leaves, and the last tips of golden sunshine.
The dance will be held for grades 6-9 on Oct. 23. Invitations to surrounding schools have gone out and the students are looking forward to a night of dancing, snacks, prizes and even a photo booth.
