October is here! While we may miss the days-off of September, October is chock full of excitement – especially with the big Halloween Carnival only three weeks away. I was fortunate to share the stage this morning with several dynamic guest speakers – and now here are the details:
Make-Up Picture Day:
It has been a pleasure photographing your children this year. It came to my attention that some classes didn't receive the order form until this Monday. I want to let you know that we take everyone's photo so if you want to order photos for your child it is not too late. You can bring your order envelope to the office or have your child turn it in to their teacher no later than Tuesday Oct, 6th which is the make-up day for those who were absent on photo day. I am attaching the order form. Extra forms are also available at the school's office. Please don't hesitate to call me if you have any questions.

Shrek is Coming
We have been waiting for years and finally it's here, this year's spring musical is the highly anticipated story of SHREK. Yeah!!! Shrek Jr. is a family-friendly comedy that follows the adventures of an ogre named Shrek who sets off on a quest to save a princess from a dragon; however, it turns out that in order to ultimately succeed, Shrek must battle different obstacles, including learning how to believe in himself.
Unlike previous years' plays, this one has lots of characters with speaking roles. Does your child like to perform? Sing, dance or act? Our school is known for its amazing plays. This is a great opportunity for your child to come out and have a fun theatre experience. Auditions are coming at the end of October and the full rehearsal schedule begins after the winter break. Registration is now open. You can find all parent information, registration materials, audition information etc. on our play website: https://shrektopangaelementary.shutterfly.com If you have any trouble with the website please contact Debra Shier Grether or Lisa Ward
The Original Works fundraiser has begun. Teachers have started your child’s artwork in the classroom. Parents will have the opportunity to purchase a variety of products featuring your child’s very own artwork. Original Works parent packets will be sent home by October 19th along with ordering and pricing information. The deadline for ordering and payment return will be Wednesday, October 28.
The Halloween Carnival at the Topanga Community House:
I was sent a very spooky flyer to post in the Focus, but I can't get it to stick.
