Traffic Duty for the Week: Mr. Harrell’s Class
The lingering rain clouds and unexpected traffic on the Topanga School Road this morning did not allow us to have our usual Friday morning assembly, so I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and healthy spring break and Cesar Chavez holiday. Remember – school is closed for next week and the following Monday. We hope to see everyone back relaxed and rested on Tuesday, April 3rd.
This week’s rains generated a lot of excitement, and we all know how much our trees and other plants need the water. Let’s hope all is dry when we get back from spring break – it’ll be outdoor science week again!
Lion King Jr. – Relive the Experience
DVD/Digital Downloads are available of Topanga Elementary School's production of "The Lion King." If you missed the incredible performances last weekend or would like to relive the adventure again and again, don't miss this opportunity to own a copy. Simply click on the link and fill out the quick order form:
All lost and found items from The Lion King are now incorporated into the general lost and found located in the assembly courtyard. Please check it out. There were many nice sweaters, jackets and robes left at AC Stelle over the weekend and we would love to see them returned to their owners.
VAPA – The Survey
As you may know, a committee was formed at the beginning of the school year to evaluate and explore the arts we offer at Topanga Elementary. We are now asking for the input from our families. If you feel that there is room for improvement; we would like to hear your suggestions. You can either fill out the hard copy survey that went home in backpacks or our on line version through this link:
Please return the hard copies to your teacher. Thank you.
