Healthy relationships for wellness at Christ King School

Nice work for youngers – Junior high students (l-r) Tanner Finlay

Our latest Wellness Wednesday project at Christ King School in Stettler is off to a great start this month with students identifying what is needed for healthy peer relationships.

Grades K-9 have been working on individual projects regarding what respect means to them and how they show respect to others. Next up, the Grade 3 & 4 class will do a classroom project and implement it school-wide. The Grade 3 and 4 students will be monitoring the halls and the playground to catch students showing respect for other students, staff and visitors to our school. When caught, students’ names will be written on a leaf and added to the branches of our Respect Tree. Our hope is to see the bare branches grow into a lush, fruitful tree over the year. Wellness Wednesday is a partnership with Christ King School and HEaRT (creating…Healthy, Empowered and Resilient Teens), a mental health capacity building school initiative.

We are continuing with swimming lessons each Tuesday and Thursday and the grade 2, 3, and 4 classes will be singing for the seniors’ tea on Wednesday, Nov. 24 at the Festival of Lights. The junior high class has finished their woodworking project. They have proudly presented the painted playhouse to the Little Steps junior kindergarten program.

The liturgical year is coming to a close with the Feast Day of Christ the King. We celebrated with a smashingly successful school dance on Thursday, Nov. 18, and a school mass on Friday, Nov. 19. That same day, Father Arlan, parents and parishioners joined us for a delicious turkey dinner and a short video presentation. It was wonderful to set aside time to be together as community.

We are entering the season of Advent, a season of preparing for the coming of our Lord Jesus as a newborn babe. Over the next four weeks, we will be delving into what it means to prepare for His coming, reflecting on the wonder and awe of it and what it means to us as His followers today. We will be having Advent celebrations each week. Everyone is welcome to join us.

The dates for the celebrations will be Monday, Nov. 29, Monday, Dec. 6, and Monday, Dec. 13. We will also be celebrating monthly mass on Friday, Dec. 10 at Christ-King


Mark Dec. 16 on your calendar and be sure to attend our Advent Concert at Christ-King Parish at 7:00 p.m.
