The last couple of weeks have been full of many exciting events for CKCS.

On Oct. 15, CKCS’ junior high participated in Student Vote. Students spent the weeks learning about the political parties and their platforms, in order to make an educated decision in choosing our leaders in government. Students were very excited to come to the school foyer that day which was set up like a genuine polling station. Grade 6 students acted as the polling officers and students followed the procedures of the polling station. Although the ballots were replications of real ballots, the votes were collected separately of the official election. The purpose of the activity was to inform future generations of how elections work, and to compare the results of the younger generation to the current voters preference. Full results of Student Vote can be found at

On Oct. 28, CKCS participated in Bowl for Blood to support our own student Maison Ruby. Maison and his family spearheaded the campaign to raise money for Hemophilia. CKCS collect pledges and travelled to the Stettler Bowling Alley to bowl for the afternoon. The day was filled with fun, prizes and snacks. We hope our contribution helps Maison and the Canadian Hemophilia Society.

Christ-King held many events, leading up to Halloween. On Oct. 16, Spirit Squad held another Spirit Day. Students and staff were invited to wear black and orange. The Grade 6 class won the Spirit Day Trophy for the event.

The first Junior High Dance was held on Oct. 23. Many other schools attended as well, and all students had fun dancing the night away. A huge thank you to DJ Fisher who helped keep the night upbeat. Another huge thank you goes to all CKCS staff who contributed their time and efforts to make the night a huge success.

Finally on Oct. 30, CKCS held their annual Halloween Parade. In the afternoon, the gym was filled with dressed up students, parents and teachers. Classes walked around the gym, showcasing their costumes, and the event was ended with the first Dance Party Friday of the year. The entire school danced to “Calling all the Monsters” and “Monster Mash”, which was led by Spirit Squad dance leaders. Halloween costume winners were Draven Beahn (K-3) who dressed as a sock monkey. Hannah Van Straten (4-6) who dressed as a cry baby and Domenic Juhasz (7-9) who dressed as a large teddy bear. The teacher winner was Mrs. Wood, who dressed up as Hercules in honour of her Grade 8/9 language unit. Overall, Halloween was very successful at CKCS.
