Ski Trip Bus Seating

Posted on

Thank you for being prompt in your ski trip payments this week.  It really help us mainstream the process and get things in order for our trip!  We have added up the number of people wanting to take the bus vs the number of seats available and it is VERY TIGHT.  We will currently need many people to sit three to a seat – which is uncomfortable given the long distance we are travelling.  If you are able to drive to Manning we ask that you email Mrs. Goosen as soon as possible.  Her email address is pgoosen@highroadacademy.com.  We are looking forward to a wonderful day on the hill!


Weekly Update

Posted on

We have gotten back into the swing of things and have made it to the end of our first week back!  The students worked hard and were very focused this week!  Well done, Grade 5!  We have a number of things coming up this month…

Chilliwack Chief Tickets – It was such a treat getting Chilliwack Chief’s tickets for this Saturday’s game.  Due to the high demand, we thought it would be best to give each family enough tickets for their Highroad aged children to go along with one parent.  If additional family members want to join they can purchase a ticket at the gate for $16.  Children’s tickets are $5.  As tickets are assigned seating, you may need to find a different spot to sit if you are purchasing additional tickets.

Spelling Words:  choose, chose, weigh, improve, promise, machine, prepare, create, creation, effect

New Bible Memory Verses start next week!

Settlers of Catan Games Needed:  If you are an owner of the board game Settlers of Catan, we are asking if we could borrow your game for our Wednesday afternoon (January 16th). We are starting a new unit about the natural resources of Canada. If we get 4-5 boards would be wonderful. Please let Mrs. Ellis (mellis@highroadacademy.com) know if you can send a game along. Thank you.

We had some special guests visit us yesterday and they left us a stack of Chilliwack Chief tickets for the game this Saturday night.   If you would like to take your child or family to the game please let your child’s teacher know by Thursday.  We ask that you bring family members only as we want to service as many intermediate students as possible.  Please include how many tickets you would like.
