CHRIST KING NEWS — Christ King has a lot to prepare for as they finish another busy week filled with fun events and start another week filled with more events and contests.

On Wednesday, Oct. 12, Christ King had a volleyball game against Stettler Middle School. The girls walked away with a one set win, and the boys won two sets. This week, CKCS has a bye week with no game scheduled.

Black and Orange Day was hosted by Spirit Squad on Friday, Oct. 14, when students from Kindergarten to Grade 9 were encouraged to wear black and orange on that day. Spirit Day chose to have their second Spirit Day as Black and Orange Day in preparation for Halloween.

The class that had the most students, teachers, and TAs that were wearing black and orange that day was the Grade 5/6 class. The Grade 5/6 class won the Spirit Day trophy, filled with treats for the class.

On Friday, Oct. 14, Christ King also had their first Junior High Dance for the 2016-2017 school year.

Admission to the dance was $5. Students from grades 6 to 9 came to the fun event, which took place from 7-10 p.m. DJ Kalie (from the high school DJ program) did an awesome job at keeping kids out on the dance floor and even joined the fun to show off her Tina Turner moves. A record number of 90 kids attended. A big thanks to all the staff that helped organize the event. CKCS looks forward to hosting their annual Much Music Dance in January.

Starting on Monday, Oct. 17, Christ King will be having their “Guess the Pumpkin Weight Challenge” where students can pay 25 cents to guess the weight of the pumpkin that they will have on display. They will also be starting their “Guess How Many Candy Corns are in the Jar Contest” where students can pay 25 cents to guess how many candy corn is in the jar that they will have on display. Winners of both will be announced during the CKCS Halloween Parade on Monday, Oct. 31.

On Thursday, Oct. 20, Christ King’s school health team will travel to Red Deer to attend an event that supports healthy school communities in Alberta. It will be their initiative to bring healthy activities to our school throughout the year.
