Traffic Duty for the Week: Ms. Weisberg’s Class
Topanga Elementary students, teachers and parent volunteers compounded a lot of science into two weeks – and our experiment was a success! For the fifteenth year, our 5th graders welcomed 5th graders from Hart Street Elementary to our school. They were treated to lectures, hands on experiments, animal sightings and (of course) a hike on our unique trails. It was a wonderful day for 5th graders of both schools, and I’m so glad our science committee parents, 5th grade teachers and Ms. Benor stepped up and made this happen for all the students.
We kept the scientific ball rolling (while recording its velocity) during our two-day Science Fair. On Tuesday we welcomed families to come and browse the displays, and on Wednesday each classroom had a chance to tour the fair. Every student who entered presented their work to our volunteer judges, and they did a fantastic job explaining their work. We will honor our science fair participants and our skilled judges at our Friday morning assembly when we return from our well-earned spring break. Thank you again science committee – especially Alisa Land-Hill and Kent Hill for all the hours they put into making this a reality.
I hope all of our Topanga families take this coming week to slow down, enjoy time with family and friends, unplug, and rest up for our final weeks of the school year. Be safe and enjoy!
Hats Off to the Story Pirates
BRAVO! Story Pirates were a huge success this morning. It was so much fun to see and hear our kids, teachers and parents laugh and be entertained by such an amazing group of performers. Now is your kids' chance to write their own stories! We will ask for those submissions by Wednesday, April 24. Open this link for your own personal Story Kit to work on over the break:
Who knows - maybe your story will be selected for a performance by Story Pirates on May 17?
