The girls and boys basketball teams made the trip to Erskine on Jan. 14, to face off against the Erskine Extremes. Both teams conceded their games, but put their best effort forth and never gave up. The girls were especially tired, as they had a limited amount of players. Most girls played for almost the entire game, while managing to keep the score close. Excellent perseverance was shown from both teams. Go Chargers go.
Spirit squad hosted the first spirit day since arriving back from winter break on Jan. 16. Crazy Hair Day turned out to be a great success. All of the students and staff created the wackiest hair they could imagine. From bird’s nests, to crazy braids, to dyed hair, the students of Christ-King rocked their hair-dos.
Also hosted on Jan. 16, was CKCS weekly Dance Party Friday. The members of the Spirit Squad, as well as teacher helpers, Miss Kroes and Miss Keessar rounded up students from Kindergarten all the way to Grade 9 for lunch recess. This past week a new dance to the song “I Like to Move It” by Will.i.am was introduced. Students did very well at following the actions, and many memories were made.
CKCS has been gearing up and focusing on the children’s author Robert Munsch for the month of January. It is all leading up to Magical Munsch being hosted on Jan. 28. A group of performers will be coming to Christ-King to perform puppet shows based on the beloved stories.
In preparation for Magical Munsch, the junior high drama class prepared and performed skits based on five of Munsch’s stories: “Zoom”, “Stephanie’s Ponytail”, “Paperbag Princess”, “Mortimer”, and “Up, Up, Down”. Kindergarten to Grade 3 were invited to watch the performances. The library was filled with laughter and the plays were enjoyed immensely. Thank you to all students who participated.
The Much Music Dancefor the junior-high students is approaching quickly. The dance will be held on Thursday, Jan. 29. Starting at 7 p.m., the dance will run until 10 p.m., in CKCS’ gym. Tickets are $10 per person, and a concession stand will be available. Any students from grades 6-9 are invited. Students must sign up with their own school, and the forms must be returned to Christ-King by January 26. We can’t wait to see everyone there.
