With September nearly over and October just around the corner, CKCS looks forward to the many events coming up in the fall season.
Christ-King’s annual Book Fair lasted from September 20-27. A huge thank you to Mrs. Glacier who headed the organization of the event. All classes toured and students were given the chance to purchase books for themselves. Congratulations to Anthony Glacier for winning the house draw, and to Josh DeGuzman, Trip Hunt, and Billee Bolstad for getting the most accurate guesses on the Page Count Contest.
CKCS had their first volleyball games on September 27. The Chargers faced off against Donalda. The girls lost and the boys won, but both teams played well and and were all around great sports. Christ-King was very proud of their volleyball teams! Khushi Patel, who is on the girls team, said, “We lost, but still had fun. The good thing is that we got some new players this year and we are looking forward to hopefully winning our next game.” Shelby Sobchyshyn, who is also on the girls team, jokingly said, “We done good.” Joel Gustavson, who is on the boys team, said, “It was a good start to the season and we have to keep the momentum to achieve greatness, but still have fun this season.” Volleyball players look forward to their next game on October 4 in Erskine.
Christ-King had their Terry Fox Run on September 28, where students and teachers ran through the downtown of Stettler in honour of Terry Fox as well as those that they know of who are/were affected by cancer. It was awesome that many downtown businesses came out to high-five our students, and cheer us on. After their run, they were treated to juice boxes, water, and chocolate chip cookies (which were generously donated by Tim Hortons). The school raised over $1,400 to donate to cancer research.
On September 28, Mrs. Bohn’s Grade 1 class travelled to Gendre Farms, where they picked produce, picked pumpkins and watched how the farm equipment worked.
CKCS had their second annual Spirit Day on September 29, which was Orange Day (in honour of Aboriginal people who attended residential schools). It was great to see a sea of orange in the school hallways!
Cross Country Club runners have been running around Christ-King Catholic Church on Tuesdays, while on Thursdays they practice hill running at West Stettler Park. Cross Country Club runners look forward to their first race at Circle Square Ranch on October 11.
