Math Mayhem 2017

Highroad Academy will once again be offering fun, challenges and math all mixed together into one crazy family night full of math mayhem! In fact, we are calling it Math Mayhem!

Math Mayhem,  happening on January 31, from 6:30-8:00 is a great family game night for parents to bring their kids to play math games and just have lots of great math fun with the whole family. This is an opportunity to see and experience math as something fun and less intimidating. Students and families from grades 1-9 are welcome to attend.

Plan to come out and join us!

Winter Olympics Tomorrow!

As our cold winter drags on, the intermediates thought it would be fun to get into the whole winter spirit and celebrate the winter Olympics Highroad style. We will be bringing our classes down to the gym tomorrow afternoon and having lots of fun doing modified versions of curling, ski jump, biathalon and floor hockey amongst other things.

Your child should have received their team colour yesterday written in their planner to wear for tomorrow. Should be lots of fun!

Beach Day on Thursday

Sometime during the long, dark winter months, we like to enjoy a small taste of the summer to come. Thursday is Beach Day for the elementary (Primary and Intermediate). Students can wear regular clothes or beach style clothes. For Beach Day, we usually wear summer-y clothes like shorts, t-shirts, hawaiian t’s and the like. Nothing skimpy like shirts that show bellies, spaghetti straps, no actual swimsuits or the like. We crank the heat a little and have some fun. Students should bring something to cover up with or change into for after school if the weather is colder and rainy.

Spelling and Memory Verse for the Week

After a brief vacation from our spelling and memory verses, we are once again getting back into the swing of things. Here is the spelling for the week:

Don’t forget to do your pre-test on Spelling City to get your bonus mark!

Our memory verse for the week comes from Romans 8:31

What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

Skating Update

Sorry for the confusion. I did the original post on Sunday night and for some reason it posted it as Monday. There is no skating today. We are trying to re-schedule the skating date and I will update you when we have done that. So far, we still have the January 23rd date. Sorry for the confusion.


Skating Tomorrow

Just a note that, should there still be school tomorrow, we will be going skating. Please make sure that students have all their skating items, unless they are renting skates. Also, if you have not handed in the skating permission forms, they are due tomorrow along with payment, should your child be renting equipment. It is $8 dollars for two skating sessions for skates and $4 for two sessions of skating if they are needing a helmet.

Students may also wear play clothes tomorrow.
