  • I would also like to have a cake to close off the year and to celebrate summer birthdays.  If you are willing to bake a cake/cupcakes for the class please let me know.  Buying is not really an option as all baked goods have to be baked in a peanut free facility.  That limits our options.
  • I will provide the drinks, some snacks, plates and cups.
  • We will also be playing board games so I encourage students to bring a board game to play with friends.  Electronic games are not allowed.

We’re almost there! It’s just over a week until the 40th Anniversary Weekend. Things are coming together and we’re very excited about gathering as a community and celebrating what God has done through and in the lives of families that call Highroad Academy their school.

Our Alumni basketball and volleyball games on Friday, April 26th kick off our Anniversary weekend The volleyball starts at 5pm and then we’ll be having a three team basketball mini-tournament. Come out and see the legends of the past and present stars. We will have the café open as well as a food truck selling burgers, hotdogs, and fries. Bring the family out for a great evening of fun. We look forward to seeing you there.

Saturday, April 27th, is our Gala Dinner. We will start at 5:30pm with appetizers. Dinner will be served at 6:00pm. A few notable guests will share their Highroad memories and we’ll be showcasing some iconic HRA videos. It’s going to be a fabulous night of reconnecting, reminiscing, and enjoying delicious food.

As part of this celebration we’re having a silent auction to raise money to complete the beautification project we started in September. We’re very thankful to all the individuals and businesses that have contributed items or services to this fundraiser. We have well over 60 lots to bid on including vacation getaways, décor items, tools, electronics, home improvement services and so much more. The deadline to buy tickets for the Gala Dinner is next Tuesday, April 23rd at 10am so head to the school website (https://highroadacademy.com/product/40th-anniversary-gala/) to confirm your spot now.
