As Christ King works through the month of February, they have a lot to be excited about as the month of February holds a lot of fun events for the school to look forward to.

The Junior High students had a fun time from Jan. 29-31 at their Junior High Ski Trip. A group of Junior High students, their parents and Miss. Kroes and Miss. Lozeau, travelled to Lake Louise for three days of skiing and snowboarding. It was a successful first year and they look forward to repeating it next year.

Christ King had their Winter Walk Day on Wednesday, Feb. 1 to encourage everyone to be more active outdoors in winter. Led by Miss. Lozeau, the entire school walked around the block in the afternoon before returning to their regular classes.

Christ King “jump started” their Heart and Stroke Jump Rope for Heart program on Feb. 1. The Heart and Stroke Jump Rope for Heart program is a program that encourages kids from all over Canada to be healthy and active by jump roping.

The program also encourages kids to collect pledges that go towards heart disease and stroke research. CKCS will be collecting until Friday, Feb. 24.

On Thursday, Feb. 2, Christ King had their annual Canyon Ski Trip (for Kindergarten to Grade 9s). New this year was that Kindergarten to Grade 2 tubed for the day, while the older grades skied.

It was a gorgeous day on the hill, and everyone including students, teachers and parents had an awesome time.

Christ King had their annual MuchMusic Dance on Thursday, Feb. 2, where Junior High students from Christ King, and surrounding school guests came to the CKCS gymnasium to watch and dance to some music videos. It was a very successful night with a record of 92 attendants.

Everyone at Christ King will be encouraged to wear pink on Wednesday, Feb. 22 in support of Pink Shirt Day and our zero tolerance for bullying.

HOJA will be performing at Christ King on Thursday, Feb. 23. This is a concert presentation encouraging students by example and through participation to get involved in music and drama. “It includes a powerful message at the end as the singers relate heartfelt personal stories, encouraging students to believe in themselves and teaching them three simple steps to achieve their dreams.” All students and teachers are looking forward to this visit.
