Another special announcement:

Hello parents. We are putting together some SURPRISE videos for Kathy and Shelley’s retirements/last days at Highroad. If you don’t know them, they are two of our key office ladies we have been so blessed to have. Shelley is retiring and Kathy is moving up to Prince George where her and her husband bought at RV park. They are removed from this group and won’t see this, so don’t tell them. We will also be having a drive by parade which is currently planned for the 15th at the 3pm school pick up if you want to drop off a card or something then.

We are using a program that is super simple for our video! Click the link below if you are interested in joining and it will give you instructions on how to add your video. You could do either a little thank you clip, funny memory or something on your heart. Doesn’t need to be long, short and sweet is preferred! We are hoping to get this done by the end of next week.

Thanks!

You can email kvansanten@highroadacademy.com if you have any questions.

Weekly Update

Hello Everyone! Sorry for posting this later than I usually do, but I had a few last minute things to figure out.

We are quickly approaching the end of the year, only three weeks left! And I always like to end the year with a balloon countdown to the Summer. What this means is, each day at the end of the day, we will pop a balloon and in it will be something special for the next day. We will pop it the day before because sometimes there may be something they need to bring from home (and we will write a note in our planners to remind ourselves).

It was also very disappointing that we are not able to go on our field trip on Thursday, however, I do want to try and make it a special day still. We are going to do a virtual field trip to the Beach on Thursday. I know this isn’t the same as actually going somewhere, but I am hoping that we can build some fun memories in the classroom! And in honour or our virtual field trip, we can wear play clothes to school on Thursday. We will be doing our virtual field trip on June the 3rd.

June Dates:

Thursday, June 3rd – Virtual field trip to the Beach – you may wear play clothes

Friday, June 4th – Knight Day

Friday, June 11th – Knight Day

Wednesday, June 16th – Primary Fun Day

Friday, June 18th – Knight Day and Last Day of School

Reminders and Other Information:

  • return all home reading books
  • return all library books
  • don’t forget to complete your health check!

Weekly Update

Well, it has been an interesting week to say in the least, but we will just keep taking one day at a time. I will be providing more things to be done next week on Monday morning if you are choosing to keep your child at home again next week.

Dates to Remember:

Monday, May 24th – no school

Tuesday, May 25th – Chapel

Friday, May 28th – Knight Day

Spelling:

We are done spelling for the year.

Bible Memory:

1 Timothy 2:5  

 “For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus”

Reminders and Other Information:

  • Home Reading – make sure you are reading with your child every night – return – their book baggie when you have completed 5 days of reading – when they are returned I will no longer be sending books home anymore
  • Remember to complete your child’s health check every day
  • Scholastic Code: RC155750 – this is the code you will need if you are ordering online from scholastic. Thanks!

Home Reading

As we are nearing the end of the year, as your child returns their Home Reading book, I will not be sending new ones home anymore. Thanks for working so diligently with your child on their reading this year. Just because I am not sending books home anymore, does not mean they don’t need to be reading at home still!

Field Trip

I’m so sorry to say, but with everything going on in the school right now, administration has decided that all field trips are being cancelled. We will not be able to go to the Blue Heron Reserve on June 3rd. I know this is so disappointing, but I am working on planning some fun activities to help us celebrate the end of the year!
