Spell to Write and Read Parent Night

At Highroad Academy, we are using a Spelling program called Spell to Write and Read to help students become great readers and spellers. The program is a phonics based and involves the children learning 70 phonogram sounds and spelling rules to help make sense of the English language.  If you would like to know more about how this program works, and how you can help your child, we will be hosting a parent info session on Tuesday, October 3rd from 3:15-4:15pm. Childcare will be provided. If you require child care, please let me know! Hope to see you there!

Knight Day

On Wed., Sept. 27 we will have our first Knight Day. For those who are new to us, on this day the students may wear either a Knight shirt or hoodie, or any other school team shirt, sweater, or jacket, with non-uniform casual pants.  Non uniform shoes and hats are also permitted on this day. To support this the school store is open every Wednesday after school, where anyone can buy a Knight shirt for $10.  If you choose not to dress up for Knight Day, regular uniform is required. (no play clothes)
