Christ-King Chronicle

Linda Koskie, East Central Alberta Catholic Schools Technology lead teacher, is here for two days this week to continue working with classroom teachers and students on our technology goals.

Kindergarten, Grade 1 and 2 students will be visiting their Golden Pals for the last time this year. They plan to chat with their friends and entertain them with songs. Kindergarten and Grade 1 students have been touring many places around town including the Stettler Public Library, and the Post Office (where they were able to see how their letters are mailed). They also paid a visit to two local restaurants, Dairy Queen and Boston Pizza. They received a tour of the restaurant and kitchen and were able to create their own ice cream at DQ and a personalized pizza at BP’s. One of their favourite places to visit was the Stettler Museum, where they saw old fashioned playground toys like a teeter-totter (remember those?!), the Court House building and rode a “speeder” which I was told is not a train, but does run on tracks around the train station.

In other kindergarten news, a very special ceremony will take place on June 23, at 2:30 p.m. in the Christ King library. Kinder kids will celebrate their year at their own graduation ceremony, aptly called kinder grad. Parents and family members are invited to celebrate their children’s successes on this day.

The kids at Christ King have been busy providing service to the community. Junior high students have also been cleaning the church and along with the grade 3/4 class, they embarked on a service project at the Dupont farm. After all the hard work of planting was done, they had the chance to see the horses, bunnies, pigs and even a donkey. It was also perfect day to fly kites and go for a tractor ride around the yard.

Grade 8 student, David McCann, stated “This was the best time I’ve ever had planting a garden!” It was an awesome opportunity for our students to give back to the community and see that when we work together, we can accomplish great things!
