Christ-King Catholic School News
Christ-King Catholic School has had a strong and very busy start to the 2014-2015 school year! We would like to welcome back returning staff and students, as well as all our new students.
On Sept. 17, the Christ-King cross-country runners competed in the Riverdale Cross Country Running Meet. The meet was hosted by Wainwright schools; Blessed Sacrament, Wainwright High, and Wainwright Elementary. The race was held at Riverdale Mini-Park in Wainwright, starting at 10:30 a.m. With beautiful weather for running, all runners, including: Noah Greidanus, Gage Bolstad, Jakob Hein, Lukas Van Straten, Charlotte Walker, Hannah Canlas, Josh DeGuzman, Jesse Jarmin, and Darius Payne, completed the 2km race.
All runners did a wonderful job, and ended the day with Noah placing sixth in the Grade 4 Boys Division, and Josh placing sixth in the Grade 6 Boys division. A big thanks goes out to Mrs. Greidanus for driving, and Mrs. Veronica Pinkoski for her dedication in coaching! Our cross-country team looks forward to their next meet on Thursday, Oct. 2, in Camrose, AB.
Parents were invited to Christ-King’s Open House on Sept.18. Students were able to show off their classrooms and new teachers as well as attend the school year book fair. Thank you to all parents for your continued support.
Volleyball officially was underway on Wednesday, Sept. 24, when Christ-King’s two senior teams competed against the Stettler Cougars and the Donalda Eagles. Despite best efforts, our Chargers conceded both games, but look forward to future matches. A big thanks goes to Stettler Middle School for hosting both games. Our Chargers will be playing the Big Valley Bulldogs on Wednesday, Oct. 1. Go Chargers go!
Christ-King began Friday, Sept. 26, by walking to Christ-King Catholic Church to attend our first Mass of the year. Father Don spoke about the importance of not having too much or too little, and sharing what you have with others. Thank you, Father Don for your continued spiritual guidance. Next Mass will be late October.
Friday continued to be an eventful day as Christ-King continued our love of running in the Terry Fox Run. Although poor weather kept the run indoors, Christ-King students continued their commitment in completing the required running time of 30 minutes. As a school team, Christ-King raised about $2000, to be donated to the Terry Fox Foundation.
In the up-coming month, we look forward to picture day, the start-up of Spirit Squad, and the first publication of our school newspaper by our junior high students.
Stay tuned Stettler!
