This past month students in each our K-3 classroom and our 4-7 classroom have been learning about the solar system! Students in both classrooms have taken great interest in former planet, now dwarf planet-Pluto. While our younger students have been working on narratives surrounding what their life would be like as astronauts our older students have been focused on tier II and tier III vocabulary development. We love seeing our students so engrossed in a topic! Visit our website to learn more about High Road School
December 19th our students put their creativity to use by participating in our annual holiday cookies and crafts event. We were joined by families and district representatives as the students created numerous holiday crafts to bring home. Students made ornaments, snow globes and keychains among other crafts and sampled various small treats at each station. We all love to see their creative juices flow, and enjoy having visitors in the building. Visit our website to learn more about High Road School
Ms. Fitzgerald's class students are participating in a whole-class incentive for i-Ready online instruction.

This year we invited families, districts, friends, and other stakeholders to join us for our annual Thanksgiving feast. We are very thankful for each and every one of our students, staff, families, and stakeholders and enjoyed the time to celebrate together as a family. Students shared what they are thankful for and many assisted in the preparation for our festivities, including the creation of artwork to decorate the feast.
This year our students have been going above and beyond in demonstrating their artistic skills during art class with Ms. Felix. Earlier this November students painted birdhouses as a means to implement many of the painting techniques that they have learned over the first quarter. Students splattered, layered, and used wet and dry brush techniques to create their works of art. We love seeing their creativity blossom!
This Halloween our students demonstrated their creative side and personal interests by dressing up and participating in an afternoon of arts and crafts with families and other district partners.
