Butterfly Day is tomorrow! You could see in in the eyes (and wings) of our students as they dressed and sang like butterflies and other pollinators for our morning assembly. This is a new, ambitious project for the science committee – I hope to see you there!
Our 4th Graders dove headfirst into the Smarter Balanced test beginning on Monday, and their reward was that they have finished the week and completed their test for the year. They also have the satisfaction of knowing they worked hard and tried their best. This is not an easy test, and I’m proud of the courageous way our girls and boys are facing this challenge.
Next week is our second week of state mandated testing –and this time it’s 5th Grade’s turn. Parents can help by making sure your child gets plenty of rest, a good breakfast, and lots of encouragement. We don’t want anyone to be stressed or anxious about the test – but we do want everyone to try their best, which they can only do if they feel their best.
We’re excited about the upcoming “Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week,” when we honor the teachers and aides who work so hard with our students. I’ve heard that our parents and the administration have some surprises in store for our favorite Topanga educators – but everyone will have to wait until next week to see what they’ve planned for this year . . .
What could make your year even more special? A yearbook to keep all of the amazing memories our kids have created together!

Hot Dog & Ice Cream Crawl
Dog Haüs and Carmela, both in Woodland Hills, are having fundraisers for us this weekend. Be on the lookout for an email explaining the rules of our classroom contest for distributing the most hot dog coupon cards!
