Traffic Duty for the Week: Ms. Welch’s Class
Thanks to all the students, parents and families that made this year’s Staff Appreciation Week so special. This week the teachers and aides got flowers, fruit, sweets, heartfelt cards and (most importantly) words of gratitude and appreciation. The “crowning” touch was this morning, when the teachers were seated on Thrones of Education and given personalized scrapbooks while being presented with a work of art (a multicolored heart) made up of handprints of all of our students! And we got to hear 3rd grade sing (among other favorites) “The Sound of Silence.” Truly, a drizzly morning to remember.
Parking here at Topanga Elementary is always a challenge, which is why we allow parents to use the lower playground as a parking lot before and after school. The lower playground is a playground during school hours, but it should not be used as a playground when it is a parking lot (i.e. when cars are present). Let’s make sure we aren’t allowing children to play in the lower playground when cars are still moving – it’s just not worth the risk.

Thanks to everyone who came out last weekend to Carmela and Dog Haüs, and to those businesses for supporting TECS!
Have a Happy Mother’s Day,
Mr. Steve Gediman, Principal
