Elli Anderson and Abbey Bohn, Grade 8 Students
Christ-King began the past week with Black and Orange Day on Nov. 28, in order to celebrate Halloween. All students were very excited about this Spirit Day, and showed great participation. Every classroom was flooding with black and orange.
The teachers would have to be the MVPs of the event, as they went all out! A few teachers even wore orange eyelashes, and feather boas.
Spook and Spike took place on Oct. 30, at Theresetta School, in Castor. The Grade 5 and 6 students went to participate. They had a fun day filled with volleyball games, visiting with other students, and snacks. One team came home with the tournament win.
This week was filled with lots of excitement, as Christ-King geared up for Halloween on Friday. After lunch, all the students dressed up, and at 12:25 p.m. Kindergarten to Grade 9 paraded around the gym. Some people had some pretty original costumes; we had every shape and size of spooky and fun things. They were all very adorable. Even our wonderful teachers participated in the celebration.
Thank you to all the teachers for organizing the event for us.
On Wednesday, Oct. 29, the Charger’s volleyball team kicked off the annual CARA tournament. The girls played at home, while the boys travelled to Erskine. Both teams did very well, the girls coming very close to winning their games, and the boys winning a few games.
The CARA tournament continued on Saturday, Nov. 1. The boys played in the William E. Hay High School, while the girls played in SMS and SES. The boys did an excellent job working together and coming through as a team, despite nervousness. They made the playoffs, but lost to Brownfield in a close game.
The girls were on fire, and walked away with a strong win against Brownfield.
Coach Raelene said the girls’ second game was the best game they had played all season. What a way to end the year.
Both teams have showed great teamwork and dedication throughout the season, and have worked hard. Thank you so much to Denver Wik, Raelene Sobchyshyn, and Kalya Keessar for volunteering their time to coach. Go Chargers go!

Classroom Sneak Peek
In the 4/5 classroom, they are learning about the weather. Students built weather instruments, and are learning about the types of clouds. They also finished their hero unit, where they made recipes, stories, and pictures to explain what they thought made a hero. Good job to 4/5s! Keep up the great work!
