Orange Shirt Day

September 29th, 2021

It was a wonderful day to open the conversation around Orange Shirt Day with Grade 1s. Here are some of the activities we did:

Orange Shirt Day – September 29th

September 28th, 2021

Don’t forget that tomorrow, September 29th, is Orange Shirt day. Students are invited to wear an orange shirt and casual bottoms to school. Children are also free to wear their uniforms if they prefer.

Robert Munsch

September 28th, 2021

In the month of October, we will be doing a Robert Munsch Author Study. Our goal is to read as many Robert Munsch books as possible! If you have any Munsch books at home that you would be willing to lend us, that would be fabulous! Please make sure your name is in the books so we can return them to the correct families! This unit is always a class favourite!

Pizza Lunch

September 20th, 2021

We are now able to order Pizza Lunch online through the “munchalunch” programme. It can be found on our Highroad Academy website in the “My Highroad” section. Pizza lunches will be on Tuesdays. I know the kids have been wondering about hot lunch since Kindergarten so this will be exciting for them!

Apple Tasting

September 20th, 2021

On Friday, we did some apple tasting. I tried to bring in some types that the children may not have tried before. I found an apple called “envy” that was really yummy!

Rainy Weather

September 17th, 2021

With the rainy weather that we need so badly here, we will need to start dressing for the weather. Children will be going outside to play in the light rain. We will only stay inside if it is raining heavily. Please send rain boots and coats to school so we can enjoy our puddle jumping and not be soaked for the rest of the day!
