CHRIST-KING CHRONICLE

Kindergarten, Grade 1 and Grade 2 students in Jaclyn Delhommeau and Elissa Hellekson’s classes celebrated the 100th day of school on Feb. 15, 2011.

Students brought their one hundredth day creations to show their classmates.

They enjoyed counting (and eating) 100 snacks, as well as making necklaces with 100 beads at their 100th day party.

And what’s a party without a cake? An anonymous prankster hid their hundredth day cake, but thankfully, it was recovered in time for everyone to enjoy a piece.

Constable Gulak, a collision analyst with the RCMP, spoke with junior high students about the use of physics in his job. Grade 3 and 4 students also benefitted from Constable Gulak’s knowledge of the practical applications of concepts they have been learning about in science like force, momentum and friction. He showed them how he uses formulas to calculate force and velocity to reconstruct an accident scene.

The Grade 5 and 6 class has been learning about electricity in science, so Constable Gulak’s visit to their class involved the use of formulas in the application of math in science.

Teachers and support staff at Christ King School felt very loved last week as parents and students brought treats like homemade cinnamon buns, coffee, and fresh fruit, as well as presents and cards to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week. Parents also chipped in for a school wide potluck lunch on Wednesday, Feb. 16. Everything was delicious.

The teachers and support staff at Christ King School are very blessed to be a part of a community of families who pray for us and support us all year long.

We pray that you also receive God’s blessing abundantly.
