CHRIST-KING CATHOLIC SCHOOL

September 2021

Welcome to the 2021/2022 School Year @ CKCS!

Students were welcomed back into our hallways at CKCS on September 1, 2021. Staff and students alike were so excited to return and our first day was nothing short of AMAZING! We started with an assembly, and each classroom spent the day unpacking, getting to know each other and playing fun ice breakers! What a great start to a great year!
2021/2022 First Day Highlights

Faith Moment

For the month of September, our Faith theme is "Keys of Our Faith". Students have been learning about the Bible. Some fun facts that we have covered are:


  • We use it to learn about God
  • Bibles come in all shapes and sizes but they have the same stories
  • The Bible is split into two sections: Old Testament & New Testament
  • There are 73 "books" in the Bible all with different names!



Students have been competing against other classes in a race to find and collect the many keys that have been hidden around the school. On each key, a book of the Bible is written. When found, they place the key on their Books of the Bible bookshelf! It has been quite fun to see the excitement as classes fill up their bookshelves!

New Draft K-6 Curriculum

The Alberta Government released a new draft of Alberta Curriculum in March 2021. For those that do not know, the Curriculum documents are what are given to teachers to tell us what to teach at each grade level.


At the moment the Alberta Government is requesting feedback from all stakeholders - this includes parents!


Please click the link below and review the proposed curriculum and then fill out the survey provided to give your feedback!


Parents are a VITAL part in their child's education, so be sure to get your thoughts in on this process!


PLEASE NOTE: ECCS has decided not to pilot the draft curriculum for the 2021/2022 school year.
