Christ-King Chronicle

Alleluia, Christ is risen! We rejoice in the season of Easter for fifty days until the Feast of Pentecost.

Before Easter Break, we began the Holy Week with a reminder of the story of the Passion from the Grade 2 class.

They showed us artwork that they had created outlining Jesus’ journey from the Garden of Gethsemane to the crucifixion and finally, His death. They read to us from scripture so that we could reflect on the meaning of Holy Week and ponder the amazing things Jesus did for our salvation.

Later that week on Holy Thursday, Christ King School students and staff participated in a symbolic Seder meal to commemorate Jesus’ Last Supper.

The tables were beautifully set, music played softly in the background, and guests were formally seated.

“The aim of the Seder on this night of the Passover is to bring the events and miracles of the past deliverance of Moses and his people from Egypt into the present, so that each of us gathered here feels as though we had personally come out of bondage. We are asked to bear witness to God’s redeeming action in the past, to act according to His will in the present, and to renew our hope in further redemption.” Excerpt from The Seder Meal (adapted celebration based on the Passover Meal). It was an interesting and tasty learning experience for all.

The Spring brunch on May 1 was a big success and over $1500 was raised towards our new community playground project. The brunch was held at Christ King Parish Hall with approximately 180 guests. Thanks to everyone who came out to support this worthwhile project.

We are looking forward to the spring carnival on May 11. Come on out to Christ King School from 5 to 8 p.m. for lots of family fun. There will be cake raffles, games, and prizes.

Happy Education Week! In order to help celebrate this special week, we have planned a few fun activities that we will be doing together at the school.

Students in grades 3, 6 and 9 are preparing for Provincial Achievement Tests, which are coming up shortly. Grade 3 students will write their Language Arts, Part A P.A.T on May 17, with the Grade 6 following on May 18, and Grade 9s writing on May 19. Please say a prayer for all students to do well on these provincial exams.

Our earthboxes are growing well and this is making us very excited to start our school wide Gardening Club. Our first meeting will be on May 25, 2011.We have rented a plot in the community gardens for all interested students to grow a “soup garden”.
