Home Reading

Tomorrow in your child’s folder you will find a reading log for the month of April.  This sheet is to keep track of your child’s daily reading.  Each time your child reads (or is read to) for 10 minutes they can colour in one of the pictures.  At the end of the month your child can exchange their fully coloured (or nearly fully coloured) page for a prize!  Happy reading!

April Dates

Welcome Back!  I hope you had a wonderful Spring Break and Easter.  We are, hopefully, well-rested and ready to take on the last few months of this Kindergarten year.  Here are a few dates to keep in mind as we make our way through the month of April.

Wednesday, April 10th – Pay $2 to Wear Casual  (Library Fundraiser)

Tuesday, April 16th – Grandparent’s Day (12:30-2:45 pm)

Wednesday, April 17th – Jersey Day

Friday, April 26th – Pro-d Day (no school)

Tuesday, April 30th – Bake Sale (Library fundraiser)

Math Mayhem

Our grade 10-12 students have been planning a special evening of math fun and games.  All highroad students in grade k-8 are invited.  Students must bring a supervising parent along.  The event will take place between 6:30 and 8:00.  If it’s not too late for your Kindie student, we’d love to see you there!

Class Photo Day

Class photos will take place on March 6th. The plan is to have the photos outside on the basketball court with Mount Cheam in the background.  Please dress your child in either their uniform hoodie or cardigan as it might be chilly.

Thanks!

A Message from Mrs. Goosen

Dear Parents or Guardians,

 

We sincerely apologize for the late notice. As enrollment for the 2024/2025 school year is currently underway, we find it necessary to allocate time for assessing next year’s kindergarten students. Although this has not been included in our school calendar, it is essential for our teachers, Mrs. Larsson and Mrs. Morris, to spend a day with the new kindergarten applicants.

 

On Friday, March 1st, there will be no school for our current kindergarten students. If possible, we kindly request that you keep your child at home on that day. We understand that this may pose challenges for some families, and we are prepared to provide care for your child if needed.

 

Please contact the office by Friday, February 23rd if you plan on sending your child on March 1st.

 

We genuinely appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter.

 

Sincerely,

Pamela Goosen

Elementary Department Coordinator

100 Day Details

Wow!  Today was our 87th day of Kindergarten.  We are getting very excited because soon it will be time for our 100 Day Celebration!  It will take place on Monday, February 26th.  Here are a few important details regarding this special day:

DRESSING UP

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.

100 DAY TRAIL MIX

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 – Madlynn

chocolate chips – Nixon

pretzel sticks – Roman

m&m’s – Milo

gummy bears – Avery and Kenna

popped popcorn – Alex

mini marshmallows – Cherise

corn pop cereal – Mayleigh

100 DAY COLLECTION

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 22
