Welcome to another edition of the Christ-King Chronicle.
One of the highlights for many of us this past week at Christ King School was the Terry Fox Run which was held on Thursday, Sept. 24. Students, staff, parents and siblings ran, jogged, walked, strolled, and sprinted around the track for dozens of laps to raise money for the cause. Students wore wrist bands to tally the number of laps they completed which were then collected and entered into a draw for the grand prize; a black t-shirt with a stylized graphic design of Terry’s face. Students collected pledges to meet their goal of raising $1.000 dollars for the Terry Fox Foundation.
On Saturday, Sept. 26, students in grades 5-8 had the chance to see the Edmonton Eskimos play the Saskatchewan Roughriders on an excursion to Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton with Mr. Faught, Miss Soldan, Mrs. Broekhuizen, and some parent fans. One highlight was super-fan Christian wearing his carved out watermelon helmet to support his team. A great day was had by all.
On Monday, September 28th, another field trip saw grade 3-8 students go to the Atlas Coal Mine National Historic Site in Drumheller, to hike up the badlands, discover the bedrock of the Drumheller coal mine industry and learn about coal, rocks and minerals and planet earth. Kindergarten, grade 1 and 2 students visited the Jungle Farm in Drumheller. Their trip included a wagon ride, bale maze, corn maze, farm animals, education on harvest, and each child was allowed to pick a pumpkin to take home.
Afterwards, parents were invited to see our new space at school and get to know teachers’ expectations and goals for this school year at Meet the Teacher Night and peruse the book fair.
