It was wonderful to showcase two of our parent led enrichment committees this morning at our assembly. First, VAPA (Visual and Performing Arts) announced the exciting news about a dedicated arts room for next year. And for lunch, VAPA parent volunteers served up Topanga Elementary’s very first Art Lunch. Students in grades 1 – 5 who had parent permission were given a white tee shirt to use as a canvas for a multicolored work of art. The kids had a great time, thanks to the hard work of our VAPA parents. Who knows what they have planned for the next Art Lunch?
Next, the Science Committee took the stage, and they gave us a look at a map of the proposed additions to our thriving Butterfly Garden. And then – the butterflies were released into the Topanga air, which was certainly a dramatic way to end our final Friday morning assembly for the school year.
Next week is the final week of school, and we will be following a different dismissal schedule than usual. Instead of getting out at 1:35 pm only on Tuesday and Thursday, we will be having our 1:35 pm dismissal every day from Monday – Wednesday. Thursday, however, is a minimum day, with dismissal at 12:40 pm. This is necessary because of the logistics involved in conducting our Fifth Grade Culmination.
Have you visited the Lost and Found lately? Better hurry – the clothes rack is nearly overflowing, and any day now we’ll be donating it all to make room for more lost clothes. If you’re missing a jacket or sweater – visit the Lost and Found today!
Math-A-Thon – Monies due to classrooms (in the class Pledge Envelope) by next Tuesday (6/5) to be considered for class and individual prizes.
We will accept online donations from the following link: http://www.topangaelementary.org/donate.html
Be sure to write Math-a-Thon + your child’s name and the teacher’s name in the notes section.
