100 Day

I’m sure you’ve heard that our class is celebrating the 100th Day of school on Thursday!  It takes us part timers a lot longer to get to 100 than everybody else so we’re super ready to celebrate!  Your child came home this week with two letters, one asking you to help them create a 100 piece collection and one asking you to bring an item for our 100 piece snack.  Thank you!  If you could have these at school by Wednesday that would help so much with our organization on the big day.

The children are also encouraged to dress up like they are 100 year olds!  Please don’t feel that you need to run to the store to purchase a costume.  Instead, try to find items at home.  Here are a few ideas to get your creativity going:

-grey hair

-hair curlers



-beaded necklace


-bow tie


-grey beard or mustache


-knee highs

Your creativity this year has always blown me away!  I’m sure you’ll all have fun with this one!

We’ll want to capture the memories for sure on this one.  I’ll be taking photos during the day but am looking for someone to stay a few extra minutes at the start of the day to take individual photos of the children in their costumes.  Please email me at dmorris@highroadacademy if you are available. Thanks!


Spring Sing

Mrs. Mackie asked teachers to forward the following information regarding our upcoming Spring Sing concert:

Our annual Spring Sing concert is this Monday, May 29th, at 7 pm.  Students need to be in their classrooms at 6:40 in order to line up and be seated with their classes.  The dress code is black and white or a combination of the two (not grey), with casual bottoms, such as blue jeans.  Any shoe is fine, but please no shorts or short skirts.  I would prefer that the students not have any large logos or characters on their shirts and if you are unsure of what to have them wear, the uniform shirt is a good option.  I would encourage you to come out to this event.  As a mom of two busy kids, I am all too aware that the pressure to keep up with events and activities can be overwhelming, which is why we try our best to keep nighttime events to a minimum.  Your child has worked hard on their music and is looking forward to performing with their class, and we hope that all of our students will be able to attend this event.

Many thanks,

Hannah Mackie


Side Note:

I know that this is a late event for Kindie children.  Thankfully, our class is performing first.  So, if you would like to leave early you can just discreetly sneak over to where we are seated and collect your child.  I’ll totally understand!
