Pumpkin Patch Parent Help

An orange pumpkin patch fieldtrip permission form came home today in your child’s folder.  Please fill it out and return it as soon as you are able.

I am looking for several parents to supervise a small group of children at the Corn Maze.  If you wouldn’t mind to help in this way please let me know.  Thanks!

Little Readers


In our Kindie class we have been talking about three ways to read a book:

1.  Read the pictures.

2.  Read the words.

3.  Retell the story.

Each day we have “Read to Self” time where we take our very own basket of books, go to our reading spot, and practice our reading stamina.  You’re going to be very proud to know that, so far, we are able to stay focussed for  7 1/2 minutes!  We are looking forward to a movie with popcorn when we can read for 15 minutes!  Btw, you may start hearing your child talking about going “book shopping.”  Don’t worry.  I haven’t taken them to the mall!  When the boys and girls start to get tired of the books in their baskets they may choose new books from our class library.  That way the interest level stays high.  I’m really proud of the efforts I’ve seen so far from these young readers!

Bb Verse

On Tuesday I will ask each boy and girl to say their Aa memory verse (All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God – Romans 3:23) to me.

We will be starting to learn our new verse this week:

Acts 16:31 – Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved.

Toonies for Terry

This Wednesday is also our annual Toonies for Terry event at our school.  Kindie students are encouraged to bring a toonie donation and will participate  in a short run around the soccer field at some point in the day.  All funds raised will go towards cancer research.

Knight Day

This Wednesday, September 30th, will be our first Knight Day at Highroad.  Students have the option of wearing jeans and a Knights shirt if they like. This is an optional activity and students are free to wear their uniforms if they prefer.  Knight shirts will be available for purchase for $10 in the school lobby this week on Tuesday after school and Wednesday morning.

Go Knights!

Jackets and Cardigans

As the weather begins to cool down please remember to send a jacket along with your child.  We do try to get the children outside for recess and lunch even if it’s lightly raining  It’s so good for the children to get some fresh air and be able to run and play.  It’s always and good idea to label jackets (and cardigans) because they don’t always stay on as little bodies heat up during playtime.  Thanks!
