Learning pedestrian safety was Wellness Wednesday’s subject at Christ King School

Residents at a local senior citizens’ home, Paragon Place, have recently made friends with our Kindergarten, Grade 1 and 2 students.

These “Golden Pals” will meet monthly for songs, crafts, games and a visit. This new service project is an example of how we hope to achieve one of this year’s school goals: to strengthen ties with the community and parish through acts of service.

This past week on Wellness Wednesday, Constable Gulak, a collision analyst for central Alberta, came to our school to have an important discussion on traffic and pedestrian safety. Students were reminded of how to cross the street safely by remembering these four steps:

1. Make sure you cross at a cross walk

2. Make sure the car is stopped

3. Make eye contact with the driver before you cross

4. Don’t walk out until you do all these things

November will be a busy month with many interesting things happening. Catholic Education Sunday lands on Nov. 7 this year. Students, parents and staff will be participating in the ministries, from greeting to altar serving, proclaiming and music to hosting coffee after Mass, which will start at 11 a.m. We will be visited by the Royal Canadian Legion on Nov. 9 at 11:05 a.m. and will have another Remembrance Day celebration at 10:45 a.m. led by the students on Nov. 10.

Please join us at all these events as families are always welcome. Report cards will go home with students on Nov. 10 and parent-teacher interviews will be held the following week on Nov. 17.

Swimming lessons begin on Nov. 16 and continue until Dec. 2. As well, Mrs. Hellekson is preparing a group of students for a choir performance at the Festival of Lights this year.

On Nov. 18, Christ King School Council will be hosting a school dance at our gymnasium from 7-9 p.m. There will be a dj door prize, treats and refreshments and a Time, Talent and Treasure Silent Auction.

It should prove to be a great opportunity for families to enjoy time together and get to know others in our school community. Bring your family and friends.
