Poppies

We are excited to have a Remembrance Day Ceremony tomorrow at 10:30am. You are welcome to join us! Each student will be given a poppy to wear. If you would like to send in a donation, the office will gratefully accept it!

Remembrance Day Service

We hope you can come join us on November 10th at 10:30am for our Remembrance Day Service.  In preparation for this service, we are asking all our Highroad families if they have a special Veteran in their lives that they would share with us.  Please go to Honouring Veterans and upload a photo and story of your special Veteran this week.  We would love to share the photos and stories at our service.

Parent Teacher Interviews

We have had a great start to Kindergarten and have been learning so much! This month we will have an opportunity to sit down and talk about your child’s strengths and challenges.  Please follow the link below and sign up for a time to come and chat with me.  If November 16 doesn’t work for you, please let me know and we can arrange another time to meet.  Please note, these meetings are for parents only, not Kindie students.

Number Formations

We have been working on our number formations 0-10 and are getting more and more confident!  In your child’s folder today you will find a number formation poems page.  Please use it as a reference tool.   I’m sure your child would love to show you their number printing skills!  Thank you for teaming with me in your child’s Kindergarten learning!

Thank you, Jesus, for a wonderful day!
