Sights and sounds of Peru

This past week at Christ-King School, the Grade 3 and 4 class received a special visit from “Jose” to tell us about Peru, one of the countries we are studying in Social Studies this year.

Buenos Dias.

This past week at Christ-King School, the Grade 3 and 4 class received a special visit from “Jose” to tell us about Peru, one of the countries we are studying in Social Studies this year. We watched a video of the markets of Cusco, the floating islands on Lake Titicaca and the Incan ruins in the lost city of Machu Picchu.

The kindergarten class started attending school full-time and were fortunate enough to try out their new centres room.

In junior high, Mr. Faught has organized a field trip to Edmonton to see the Eskimos play the Roughriders on Saturday, Sept. 26. We warmly welcome our new educational assistant, Brenda Murphy, who will be working in the grade 7/8 room.

The whole school was treated to a free hot dog lunch on Friday at a Welcome Back to School BBQ. Yum!

Some upcoming events for our school to keep in mind are the Terry Fox Run on Sept. 24 from 2:15 – 3:25 p.m., Book Fair will be set up on September 23, 24 and 29 during the day as well as on Meet the Teacher Night (Sept. 28) from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and there will be no school for students on Friday, September 25, 2009 due to a professional development day for teachers.
