Merry Christmas!

December 28th, 2021

Thank you so much for the gifts, cards and words of encouragement! I appreciate you and your support in these interesting and sometimes challenging times. I pray that this Christmas season has been restful and full of food, fun and family. I have enjoyed the snow and cold, but it does make horse activities very challenging. I look forward to seeing you soon and I will post a January update when I get the information!

I just wanted to touch base with you as I have had a number of emails this morning. It seems we have a cold/flu combo moving through the classroom. I am sorry not to have my full class at school as each student adds so much to our daily work and Christmas celebrations. I am thankful that they are home safely and that we are trying to slow the spread. I look forward to seeing each student back in class when they are feeling better.

Christmas Concert Dress Up

December 3rd, 2021

A Note from our Music Teacher:

Wednesday Dec. 15 is Christmas Sweater Day at Highroad.  This is perfect for our annual Christmas Concert performance.  Many students have asked, “But what if I don’t have a Christmas sweater?”.  Good question.  Here are the options for the Christmas concert:

  1. a long-sleeved Christmas themed Tshirt, sweatshirt or sweater
  2. a long-sleeved plain T-shirt, sweatshirt or sweater
  3. a long-sleeved Tshirt, sweatshirt or sweater turned inside out, if there is a design that doesn’t fit our Christmas theme.

Any choice of jeans or dark pants/skirts are preferable to complete the students’ ensemble.

Spelling Words

December 3rd, 2021

Here are the Spelling words for the week of December 6th. I will introduce the words on December 6th and we will have a Spelling test on December 10th.
