Skating this Monday! Yay!

On Monday, your child can wear casual clothing as we are going skating from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. Don’t forget the helmets and the skates.  Remember that if your child is renting skates, he/she still needs to bring a helmet.  Let the fun begin!

Let’s Shrink Wrap Mr. Morris!

Mr. Morris has a challenge for the Highroad community. If we can raise $5000.00 for the beautification project between Feb 1-22, he will volunteer to be shrink wrapped to the red post at the front of the school during the morning greeting time on Friday, Feb. 22. Donation cut off is Thursday, Feb. 21 at midnight. You can donate at the school office, or online (highroadacademy.com/product/donate) to this excellent cause of seeing our Principal ‘hang around’ the morning of the 22!

Ski Trip Details

The countdown is on regarding the ski trip. The Intermediate ski trip is this Friday, Jan. 25th.

On Friday, if your child is riding the bus, please have them to the school lobby by 6:30, as the bus is scheduled to leave at 6:45 am (sharp).  We will not be able to delay for late comers. For the afternoon pickup, please be at the school at 4:30 pm. Please do not wait for a call from your child as this will delay the teachers having to wait as well.

Students should bring plenty of food and juice as we’ll be gone for about 10 hours. Please remember to bring your equipment (if you are not renting), sleds & a helmet if you aren’t renting, plenty of warm clothes (a change of dry clothes is a good idea for the trip home), and something to do on the bus (no electronics please).  We’d appreciate your prayers for safety, and God’s protection on our day.

PS. Parents, if you are driving to the ski hill, you do not need to meet us at the school first.  In fact we encourage you to arrive at the ski hill ahead of the bus as the rental office is willing to process your rentals before the bus arrives. Just let them know that you are part of the Highroad Intermediate field trip and make sure they check your name off of the registration list. Tell them your ID number and that will help them find your registration.

Your child’s teacher will be giving out the ID numbers to help facilitate finding your names on the registration list. When the bus arrives, students will line up by ID number order and lift tickets will be handed out.

We’re looking forward to a great day at Manning!  See you there!

Ski Trip Bus Seating

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!

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.
Game details: Saturday, January 12th.  7pm start.  Playing Surrey Eagles.
