CHRIST KING CATHOLIC SCHOOL — Students and teachers have a lot to prepare for and look forward to as they return to school, starting off the New Year.
Students and teachers returned to school on Wednesday, Jan. 4 after their two-week Christmas break. They began the month with Liturgy on the opening day led by Mrs. Bohn. She spoke on why CKCS does not take down Christmas decor until the following Monday in anticipation for the Epiphany on January 6th. This is when the Three Magis or Wise Men visited the baby Jesus.
A ski trip was planned for Christ King students and teachers on Thursday, Jan. 12, but the trip was postponed due to extreme cold weather. The trip will now take place in February, although an exact day is yet to be set.
The CKCS Chargers travelled to Erskine on Wednesday, Jan. 11 for their first basketball game of the season. The boys played well and the game was extremely close with CKCS pulling a win with only one point. Although the girls played well, they conceded.
Christ King’s annual MuchMusic Dance will be held on Thursday, Feb. 2. Students of grades 6-9 are invited from surrounding schools. Admission will be $10 and students are required to sign up at their own school in order to be admitted that night. There will be a concession stand at the dance where students can choose to buy snacks and drinks. The dance will run from 7-10 p.m.
