We have so many events coming up that I hardly have the space for my usual safety and traffic reminders... so I’ll make it brief: slow down.
Movie Night – Saturday, October 15th
This Saturday (tomorrow!) Topanga Elementary is having another Movie Night! The film is Hotel Transylvania II, and just like our last movie night it will be projected on the big screen in the auditorium. It’s floor seating – so bring blankets or floor pillows, and there will be food (popcorn, hot dogs and grilled cheese and snacks) and drinks for sale – with 100% of all money collected going to TEP. I’ll be there with my son Eric to help out – but we can use more volunteers. Interested? Then click on this link to sign up:
P-22 Day & Urban Wildlife Week is Coming to Topanga!
On Wednesday October 19th from 4:30 – 6:30 pm, please join us as we celebrate the mountain lion known as P-22. National Wildlife Federation Director Beth Pratt-Bergstrom and others will retrace the trek of P-22 from here in the Santa Monica Mountains to his current home in Griffith Park. Join in the fun and excitement – and help commemorate our school being certified as an official Schoolyard Habitat. There will be guest speakers, exhibits, and you can buy a shirt by clicking here right now:
On Thursday, October 20th, Beth Pratt-Bergstrom and others will be speaking briefly to our students in the auditorium at 9:00 am. If parents are interested, they may also attend on Thursday morning. Please sign in through the office, since this is during school hours.
Boo Grams Are Coming!
Get out the list of those you want to scare! We are going to start taking your orders for scary, spooky Halloween creepy crawlies for your friends and teachers. Your special Boo Grams will be sent creeping to those you chose on Friday, October 28th. Please put in your request for boo grams at the Spirit Booth on campus.

This is a demanding volunteer position but an extremely fulfilling one, particularly if your child(ren) want to be a part of the musical. Please support our program and speak up if you can help in any capacity. Thank you.
