Plant Pick Up

Posted on

If you ordered plants through our recent plant fundraiser they will be available for pick up at the school sometime between 9 and 3 on Friday.  We are not sure exactly when in that window they will arrive so please call the office before making a special trip to the school to pick them up.  If you are not able to pick them up on such short notice please email me at dmorris@highroadacademy.com and I will pick them up for you and keep them alive through the weekend!  I will bring them to class for you on Monday morning.




Show and Tell

Posted on

We are ready to start a new round of special helpers so will begin at the beginning of the alphabet again.  Everyone will get at least one more turn before the end of the school year.  Please note that we will no longer be doing show and tell as part of our special helper day.  This will give us a wee bit of extra time in our morning for other important things.  “Goodbye, show and tell, you were fun!”



A Few Things to Know

Posted on

Here are a few unrelated but important bits of information you should know:

  1.  Mrs. Caswell has requested that each child in Kindergarten bring in a family photo.  It will be used in a slideshow presentation during our upcoming Spring Sing event on Monday, May 27 at 6:30.  You can send it to school in your child’s home folder by early next week, please.  She would love it if it showed your family doing something fun together.
  2.  There has been some interest in other languages spoken at home.  We would love to learn to say “hello” and “goodbye” in as many languages as possible!  If your family speaks another language can you help your child learn these two words, print them out on a piece of paper, and send them to school in your child’s home folder?  That would be so wonderful!
  3. Because of our busy schedule this Wednesday (First Nations Day) we will be eating our snack outside instead of in our classroom.  Please send along a snack that can easily be transported and eaten outside (no containers, please).

Interim Reports

Posted on

Your child came home yesterday with an envelope in their home folder.  Inside was their interim report.  If you would like to meet with me to discuss their progress please email me at dmorris@highroadacademy.com to make an appointment.

I will be available next week Monday (8:30-8:45, 3:15-30, 3:30-3:45, 3:45-4:00), Tuesday (8:30-8:45, 3:15-3:30, 3:30-3:45, 3:45-4:00), and Wednesday (3:15-3:30, 3:30-3:45, 3:45-4:00).  Please make childcare arrangements.  We do have supervision at the school before school from 8:30-9:00 and after school from 3:00-3:30.



Service Day

Posted on

Tomorrow, Monday, is Service Day for grades k-6.  All of our permission forms are in and we have a lot of parents able to join us.  There will be one adult for every two children.  We will be leaving the school at 1 pm to get on the bus and head to the Save-On-Foods parking lot and should be finished our lollipop bombing by 1:30.  If you signed up to help us please meet us at the school by 12:55.  Please send your child to school in their regular uniform.  Thank you!
