Traffic Duty for the Week: Mr. Harrell’s Class
Frozen Treat Sales: Ms. Welch’s Class
A big thank you to the parents from Ms. Hoffman’s and Ms. Chatham’s class for helping with traffic duty. Please continue to help by being patient, leaving home or work early enough so that you’re not rushing, pulling all the way forward in the circle so other cars can move up, and not leaving your car unattended in the traffic circle. Together, we can make this work.
Volunteerism: Seven parents joined me this morning for our first volunteer training of the school year. After these new volunteers are processed by the school district (a form must be completed online), they will be helping our students either in the classroom or through one or the many committees we are setting up to address needs such as Art Trek, special events, safety, or even just making copies. Check our calendar for upcoming Volunteer Training sessions if you have not been trained and wish to sign up.
Back to School Night: Topanga Elementary will be holding Back to School Night on Tuesday, September 1st from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. This evening will be split into three parts: Classroom presentations, a presentation with the staff in the Quad area (the same place we have our Friday morning assemblies), and then a final half hour for classroom presentations.
We are giving you two chances to visit a classroom to hear the teacher’s presentation, so that those with siblings in two different classrooms can go to both rooms. I also encourage you to visit the Science lab and meet our new science teacher, Ms. Schoonmaker. I will be making a very brief presentation (so you won’t be late to your second classroom visit), and I look forward to seeing all of you on campus for this important school event.
I’ve had a terrific first two weeks of school, and I’m sure your child can say the same. Have a great weekend, and I’ll see you all on Monday!
Mr. Steve Gediman, Principal
