Gardening club has huge following at Christ King School

Meeting new friends - New principal

School is back in full swing at Christ King with some old and new programs.

On the very first day of school, students and parents asked if we were holding a gardening club meeting. Although we weren’t able to meet that day, we did the next best thing. When we met the following Wednesday, our budding gardeners were excited to harvest fresh heads of lettuce.

We also came away with a sense of wonder inspired by growing our very own garden.

Mr. Gallagher is sharing his musical talents with our school community by playing his guitar at assemblies and teaching the grade 6 – 9 students to play the guitar as well. They had their first class last week and we’re all looking forward to the day they will perform for us.

We would like to extend an especially warm welcome to Mrs. Gulak, who will be teaching the Grade 5 and 6 class, as well as some junior high classes. We hope your time at Christ King will be joy- filled and successful. Thanks to Mrs. Younghans for the great start to the new year.

The Grade 3 and 4 class is studying Waste and Our World in science and is happy to introduce a composting program to the school. We have a vermi-composter in our classroom and will be collecting food for our worms to eat every day.

Don’t forget about our open house on Monday, Sept. 20 from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. Drop in to meet the new teachers (and say hi to the “old” ones). Bring the whole family to enjoy a hot dog and juice. While you’re there, check out the book fair and our newly renovated school. See you soon.
