Christ-King Chronicle

Last week, we remembered Education Week by having some fun and showing our school spirit.

Students participated in hat day, crazy hair day, and jersey day from Tuesday until Thursday. Friday, or occupation day, was an extra special day as students could come to school dressed up as what they would like to be when they grow up. We also held a popcorn sale to raise money for our adopted brother George in India. This also provided us with the opportunity to raise awareness of the blessings we receive in publicly funded education and our calling to help those who are in need. The sponsorship funds we raise for George go towards education, nutrition, clothing and/or medical care. What a week!

Congratulations to Grade 8 students Adam and Eric Pitzel on placing second and third in the CARA (Central Alberta Regional Athletics) Badminton tournament on Tuesday, May 3. Both boys were invited to participate in the CWAJHAA Badminton tournament in Sylvan Lake on May 14. Christ King School is proud of how well the boys did and pray for their continued success.

The Grade 3-4 class won a prize for the most students who had Litterless Lunches over a four week period. Wellness Wednesday and in conjunction with Earth Day the Grade 5-6 class implemented litterless lunches to challenge students and families to be more environmentally responsible to limit garbage from our lunches. Autumn Wyness’ name was drawn out of a group of names who participated weekly and whose lunches met criteria that the majority of food was packaged in reusable containers compostable and recyclable containers were also allowed
