It was wonderful to see so many parents and family members who came after school to honor Ms. Vee – our very special aide who is retiring this year to spend more time with her family. Ms. Vee has been at our school for over twenty years, and in addition to helping generations of Topangans with their schoolwork, she’s given us the chance to sample Thai food and culture – without actually travelling to Thailand! We wish her the best, and hope she’ll come back and visit often.
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 – Thursday. Friday, 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!
Yearbook Day is Coming!
Friday June 9th will be our official Topanga Elementary Yearbook signing day. You may pick up your yearbook outside the TECS offices after dismissal on Friday June 9th. If you did not order a yearbook, there will be limited quantities available for purchase. We will also have a limited number of our 2015-2016 yearbooks available for those who did not get one last year. Thank you to all of the parents, staff and students who helped pull the yearbook together.
