Great participation at Catholic Education Sunday Mass

Christ King Catholic School in Stettler celebrated Catholic Education Sunday this past weekend, when many of our students, staff and parents shared their talents at mass. Parishioners were greeted by young people and treated to beautiful singing by the student choir, accompanied by Mrs. Hellekson on piano and Mr. Gallagher on guitar. David O’ Donnell and Reesa Garez proclaimed the readings from Holy Scripture and Lowell Van Straten led the congregation in the prayers of the faithful. Thanks to everyone who participated in the ministries and all the families who supported their children by attending this special day.

Our family dance is coming up soon on Nov. 18 from 7 until 9 p.m. at the Christ King School gymnasium. Lots of fun will be had with prizes, a disc jockey, games, treats and refreshments. There will also be a “Time, Talent, and Treasure” silent auction and donations have been rolling in. Come out for a fun time with your family.

Our grade 5-9 mixed volleyball team capped off the season last Friday and Saturday with a CARA volleyball tournament. They played teams from Big Valley School, Theresetta School in Castor, Brownfield and William E. Hay. Over the season, our team enhanced their volleyball skills, learned good sportsmanship and how to work as a team. They also had a lot of fun. We’re very proud of their efforts.

Boys’ club continues to meet on Mondays with our family school liaison worker, Penny Warford. Boys’ club is for boys in grades one and two and they meet to eat lunch together and play games to build teamwork and cooperation.

Wellness Wednesday continues this month with topics related to healthy relationships in and out of school. We will focus on school-related activities in November and community relationships in December. Students will identify what factors are needed for a healthy relationship, such as respect, caring, trust and responsibility. We will learn about how we should treat others and how we can expect to be treated in healthy relationships.

The Grade 3-4 class will be given the opportunity to initiate a school wide project on these topics. By allowing students to take an active role in what they are learning, we hope that they will better understand and apply these concepts to their daily lives. Loretta Lavallee, HEaRT (Healthy, Empowered and Resilient Teens) coach, leads Wellness Wednesdays at Christ King School. HEaRT is a mental health capacity building school initiative.
