Topanga’s Back to School Night on Tuesday was a rousing success! We had very good (adult) attendance, and as I walked the packed classrooms I heard a lot about the high expectations and plans our teachers have for this school year. We also heard from representatives from TEP and the creative team that is taking on this year’s Big School Play - and I learned that Shrek (the play) has many more characters than the movie had. It was great seeing so many of you here and talking to you about our shared hopes for another great year. The TEP parent representatives told me that it was a good night for them as well, which, in turn, is good for all the continuation of the various enrichment programs that TEP funds at our school. Thank you all for your support!
Our Website: Thanks to Miria, parent of a student-to-be (her daughter is three), Topanga Elementary has a web site again! Just go to the old address (topangaelementary.org) to begin exploring. Miria has been working countless hours alone and with our teachers – and the results are spectacular. I’ve been waiting over a year for our website to be brought back from limbo – it’s great to see it happen.
