Special Sunday mass held in Stettler for Christ King School

Christ King School hosted a crew of 18 students from Mother Teresa School in Halkirk on Friday, Sept. 17, for a volleyball clinic.

Students from both schools in grades 6, 7, 8, and 9 were coached in basic skills by clinician Pierre Rocque from the Alberta Volleyball Association.

The association provides students all over Alberta with the opportunity to participate in a high quality volleyball clinic run by NCCP certified clinicians, who are experienced as coaches and players.

Teachers Erin Sturtevant and Tracy Soldan felt this was a great opportunity for students to improve their skills and a neat chance for our two schools to work together.

Teachers and staff from Christ King, Mother Teresa, and Theresetta Schools were recognized at Christ King Parish this past Sunday with a special commissioning Mass. Father Arlan Parenteau, our parish priest, prayed a blessing over us to send us out to share the good news in the school and in the community. He spoke about the importance of following the example of Jesus Christ in service to others and asked parishioners to keep the school and teachers in their prayers.

This week, we enjoyed the Scholastic Book Fair and our open house. Teachers will be heading to Vermilion on Friday, Sept. 24 for an Alberta Teachers’ Association Professional Development Day, so there will be no school for students on that day.

Looking ahead to next week, we are gearing up for the Terry Fox Run on Sept. 30.

Until next time, may God bless you and keep you.
