Chromebook Permissions

Chromebook – As you may or may not know, students in Grades 4-6 are assigned a laptop to use during class time. These laptops are used for some of the class work students are involved in. However, before these laptops are used by students, the form linked to below must be completed. If you could complete it as soon as possible, that would be appreciated.  In previous years, this came home as a paper handout.
The link is:

Gym strip – Our first gym class will be on Friday. If your child does not have a gym strip available yet, that is okay. We usually give a little leeway as we know that it can be difficult acquiring all the pieces. However, if you could make sure that your child has their gym strip as soon as possible, that would be great.

Class Photos – Individual class photos will be on Tuesday. Our photos will most likely be done fairly early in the morning.

Welcome to Grade 4/5

I hope that you are doing well and that you had an awesome summer break!  I am excited about all the learning and fun that will be happening in our classroom this year!  I have sent home a newsletter that should answer some of your immediate questions. Please feel free to email me at bmoisin@highroadacademy.com with any questions you might have.  Yes, planners do need to be initialled every single day.

If you happen to run late, your child needs a quick check in at the school office before coming to class.

We are a peanut free classroom this year as we are housing a student with nut allergies.  Treats are allowed for special occasions, but keep in mind that they have to be peanut/nut free.  We also have a student that is lactose intolerant so bear that in mind.

Below are a few dates to keep in mind

Help Needed!

On Friday, June 10th, we are planning some fun activities for grades 4-6.  I am responsible to prepare relay activities for outside and board games as indoor activities in case it rains.

I need some parent volunteers that can help run these activities.  Please email me at bmoisin@highroadacademy.com if you can help out.  Remember that you need to have an updated criminal record check in the HRA office in order to be able to volunteer at the school.

Wednesday’s Field Trip

Be at the school by 8:30 am as we are leaving at 8:45 sharp.  Please note that most of the field trip is spent outside therefore, your child should be dressed for the weather.  Students are required to wear their HRA Knight gear on this trip.  An abundant lunch with a water bottle is a must. The weather looks amazing!

Good News!

We are excited for our Greenhouse Fundraiser on Friday! We will have basketball games to watch as well as some interactive skills challenges for the younger ones between games. There will be pizza for sale as well as concession treats! Due to this even being outside of school hours, all students Grade 6 and under must either be accompanied by an adult or by a sibling/family friend Grade 9 or older. We hope to see you and your family there!
