‘Pie a Teacher’ event taking place soon

Picture day was Oct. 17 at Christ-King Catholic School

Though they just finished their third week of October, Christ-King has lots to share as they accomplished the success of many events in the past week, as well as look forward to more exciting events to come as the weeks pass by.

Everyone at CKCS got dressed up on October 17 as it was picture day.

On October 18, Christ-King had their monthly hot lunch. Everybody that ordered the free meal enjoyed chicken wraps, a Caesar salad, a rice krispie, and a juice box. A big thanks to Mrs. Kennedy who heads up the program.

CKCS’ Chargers played against Stettler on October 18. Although both teams lost, they had a great game. They look forward to their next game.

Eight students from Christ-King’s S.W.A.T. team will be attending a HASS meeting in Red Deer on October 25. Megan Lozeau, who is one of the leaders of the S.W.A.T. team, clarified that, “HASS stands for Healthy Active School Symposia. We have selected eight students from our Student Wellness Action Team (S.W.A.T.) to attend this event. The theme of the day is Illustrating Growth – focusing on finding the leader within through the arts, creative expression and growth mindset. Students from schools all over central Alberta will attend the symposia. It is a chance to share ideas and attend workshops. Students will work on our School’s Health Action Plan, celebrate our successes thus far and then bring back new activities and ideas to build our school community.”

Everybody at CKCS is eagerly anticipating the S.W.A.T. team’s next Spirit Day, which will be on October 27. It will be Black and Orange Day, meaning that everyone is encouraged to participate by wearing black and orange on that day to gear up for Halloween. The class with the most people wearing black and orange will win the Spirit Day Trophy.

Christ-King attended their second mass of the school year on October 20.

SWAT is excited for their first fundraiser of the year starting on October 23 called “Pie a Teacher”. Students will be able to purchase tickets for $1 each and put their name on the ticket. They will then place the ticket in their choice of a teacher jar. During the Halloween Parade, one name will be chosen from each jar, and that student will be able to put a pie in that teacher’s face. All proceeds will be used for SWAT events within the school.
