Last Friday Oct. 3, two teachers from Christ-King School took a trip to the Archdiocese of Edmonton, Pastoral Offices. They went for an evening of celebration for the Sacramental Education Initiative Pilot Groups. They spent an evening with our Archbishop, to celebrate the successes of the pilot groups, in which our small school is a part of. Our Archbishop Smith talked about the importance of communion between parish, home, and school.

On Wednesday Oct. 8, the Christ-King Charger girls faced off against the Stettler Middle School Cougars, and the Erskine Extremes. Despite good efforts, and some close scores, the girls conceded all games. The boys played well against Erskine and Stettler Middle School as well, and did great! They ended up being victorious in four out of six games. These games are helping the Chargers to prepare for the upcoming C.A.R.A. tournament on Nov.1. Great job Chargers!

This week was the C.A.R.A. Running Meet. It was the last cross-country run of the year. Many students competed in this event, but unfortunately, came home with no ribbons. The cross-country meet took place at Theresetta School in Castor.

“This track was a real course,” said the coach, Mrs. Pinkoski.

There were hills and slippery spots. The runners also had to run through a field. Noah Greidanus, Gage Bolstad, Charlotte Walker, and Jakob Hein ran in the 2km fun run. Hannah Canlas, Darius Payne, Joel Gustavson, Jesse Jarmin, and Josh De Guzman ran in the 2km.

“All of them ran very well!” said Mrs. Pinkoski.

We are all very proud of this year’s cross-country runners!

Spirit Squad has kicked off this year, with great success! The squad is made up of students from grades 6-9. Upcoming events that the Spirit Squad have been working on for the month of October are: School Colour Day on Oct.17, Black and Orange day on Oct. 21, and on Oct.31 they are encouraging everyone to come in their Halloween costumes!

The first Junior-High dance for Christ-King will be held on Friday, October 17, from 7-10pm! All grade 6-9s are welcome from surrounding areas! There will be a DJ, a concession, and some great music! We hope to see everyone there!

Mass will also take place on Oct. 17 at 9am at Christ-King Catholic Church.

Stay tuned Stettler!
