Garden Fundraiser and Silent Auction Baskets

Garden Fundrasier

With all of the beautiful weather, it is time to think about our summer planting. This Spring we are running a garden fundraiser called Growing Smiles in the hope of raising $2,000 towards our school beautification project. Please go online at www.highroadacademy.growingsmilesfundraising.com to see the plant options available. You can place your order online or at the school office. All payment will need to go through the school office. Thank you for investing in Highroad Academy!

Silent Auction Baskets

The week before spring break we were collecting $5 per elementary student to put together grade level baskets for our upcoming gala silent auction.  We thought it might be good to extend our collection of donations for this week as well.  If you are able to donate $5 to help us make a basket for the silent auction, your child can give the donation to their teacher or pay at the office.  Thank you!
