Picture Day Reminder

I hope you are enjoying your Family Day today!


Just a quick reminder that we will NOT be dressing up as 100 year olds tomorrow (although it is the 100th Day).  We will celebrate next Tuesday.

Instead, tomorrow, we will be smiling pretty for class pictures.  We are scheduled first thing in the morning (9:00) so please don’t be late!

Math Mayhem


The HRA grade 10-12 students are  hosting a night of fun Math games for our families in the gym.  This year it will take place on Wednesday, February 22 at 6:30-8:00 pm.  If it’s not too late for your little one, please consider attending and having some family Math fun together!


100 Day Change of Date

Unfortunately, due to the recent scheduling of class photos, our 100 Day celebration will be postponed until Tuesday, February 28.

Class photos will be taking place on February 21 and we will need to wear our uniforms for that (although wouldn’t a Kindie class of 100 year olds be a fun photo – haha!)

Our 100 Day dress up and celebration will take place on Tuesday February 28th instead.

Thanks and so sorry for the change!

Valentines Day Help

I am in need of some parent helpers on Tuesday, February 14 between 10:30 and 12:00.   If you have your criminal records check done and have time in your schedule to help run a Valentines station I’d love to hear from you!  Please email me at dmorris@highroadacademy. com.  Thank you!

100 Day Information

Wow!  Today was our 88th day of Kindergarten.  We are getting very excited because soon it will be time for our 100 Day Celebration!  It will take place on Tuesday, February 21st.  Here are a few important details regarding this special day:


What will I look like when I am 100?  That is the question for the children to answer.  We are dressing up to show what we think we will look like when we are 100!  There are lots of ideas online if you are looking for some inspiration.


Students will be counting out 10 of each of the following 10 items to create a 100 piece trail mix.  If you can sign up for one of the following items to bring to class by February 16th that would be great.  Please let me know by email (dmorris@highroadacademy.com).  I will edit the list as we go along so check back to see what is still needed.

Trail Mix Ingredients:

fruit loops – Georgia

chocolate chips – Hannah

pretzel sticks – Bowen

m&m’s – Khayri

gummy bears – Sage

popped popcorn – Elexis

mini marshmallows – Hannah

corn pop cereal – Lachlan

skittles – Lara

fishy crackers – Jacob


On 100 day I am asking each child to bring in a collection of 100 small objects to show the class.  Please watch your child’s folder next week for more information.  Please send your 100 collection to school by Thursday, February 16.
