Spell to Write and Read Parent Info Session

September 20th, 2017

At Highroad Academy, we are using a Spelling programme called Spell to Write and Read. We are passionate about this programme because it helps our students become great readers and spellers. The programme is a phonics based programme which has the children learning 70 phonogram sounds and spelling rules to help make sense of the English language. At times, it may sound to parents, that the children are learning a second language. If you are interested in knowing more about Spell to Write and Read, 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 sign up for childcare with me! I hope to see you there!

Family Story

September 18th, 2017

On Friday, I sent home a family story page. We are working on a family unit and are going to put together a Grade 1 Family book. If you could put a family picture at the top and then write a short paragraph about your family, we will make it into a book and have some fun learning about our families. If your family story could be back at school by Friday, September 22, that would be fabulous.

Comfort Kits
