A message from Mr. Morris

Dear Highroad Community,

We’re almost there! It’s just over a week until the 40th Anniversary Weekend. Things are coming together and we’re very excited about gathering as a community and celebrating what God has done through and in the lives of families that call Highroad Academy their school.

Our Alumni basketball and volleyball games on Friday, April 26th kick off our Anniversary weekend The volleyball starts at 5pm and then we’ll be having a three team basketball mini-tournament. Come out and see the legends of the past and present stars. We will have the café open as well as a food truck selling burgers, hotdogs, and fries. Bring the family out for a great evening of fun. We look forward to seeing you there.

Saturday, April 27th, is our Gala Dinner. We will start at 5:30pm with appetizers. Dinner will be served at 6:00pm. A few notable guests will share their Highroad memories and we’ll be showcasing some iconic HRA videos. It’s going to be a fabulous night of reconnecting, reminiscing, and enjoying delicious food.

As part of this celebration we’re having a silent auction to raise money to complete the beautification project we started in September. We’re very thankful to all the individuals and businesses that have contributed items or services to this fundraiser. We have well over 60 lots to bid on including vacation getaways, décor items, tools, electronics, home improvement services and so much more. The deadline to buy tickets for the Gala Dinner is next Tuesday, April 23rd at 10am so head to the school website (https://highroadacademy.com/product/40th-anniversary-gala/) to confirm your spot now.

Service Day

Today your child will be bringing home a bright pink permission form in their home folder.  It explains our Service Day activity for Monday, April 29th.  Please fill it out and return it to school next week.  I now have the bussing schedule and wanted to let you know that we will be leaving the school at 1 pm.  The activity will take about 30 minutes and then we will head back to the school.  We will be needing parent help for our outing.  If you are able to help there would be lots of room on the bus for you to ride along with us!

This Week’s Spelling Words

Our spelling words for this week are:






We won’t have a list next week since it’s a shorter week.

We are continuing to review our single letter phonograms (a-z) and are learning some multi-letter phonograms.  These are the ones we have introduced so far:

ee, ea, sh. th. wh, ch, ou, ow, or, ar, oo, oy, oi, ay, ai, and ck

Kindies are not expected to know all those multi letter phonograms by the end of the year.  Don’t panic if your child isn’t ready.  They will learn them next year in due time.  I just wanted to let you know where we’re at in our learning so that you can support at home as your child is ready.

Baby Food Jars

I am in need of some small sized baby food jars for an upcoming project.  If you happen to have any that you are not needing I would love to have them!  Please drop them off at the classroom.  Thanks!
