Learning how to keep safe at Christ King School

On Wednesday, Oct. 6, Christ King students participated in Safe Communities Day, a central Alberta wide project set to make communities safer. Be Visible Day was led by HEaRT coach, Loretta Lavallee, and the Jr. High leadership class. They partnered to educate CK students on an important health-related topic. The topic they chose was brain injury and helmet safety. Students participated by going through learning stations and wearing helmets of any kind all day. Shirts, stickers and bike helmets were prizes given out to participants. HEaRT (creating…Healthy, Empowered and Resilient Teens) is a Mental Health Capacity Building School Initiative project that we are proud to have in our school. Be Visible Day was the first of a new program being implemented at Christ King School. Wellness Wednesdays are opportunities for students to learn to make healthy lifestyle choices and will help them to grow physically, emotionally, and psychologically. Each month there will be a new theme as well as new learning opportunities every week.

Christ King is also pleased to see Little Steps, a new junior kindergarten and preschool, open its doors this past week. Erinn Gallagher, certified teacher of 14 years, is committed to early learning education and welcomes children aged three to five to the brand new space on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings. Mrs. Gallagher aims to “optimize children’s learning potential through fun educational activities”. Call 742-0280 for more information.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, students collected 52 lbs worth of food donations for the food bank and last week, raised over $1300.00 for the Terry Fox Foundation. Congratulations.

A reminder to parents that our next school council meeting is set for Oct. 18, 2010. Come out and meet the new executive and discuss your children’s education.
