Traffic Duty for the Week: Ms. Batz’s Class
A parent asked me this morning to mention to everyone that if one drives all the way up to the big circle in front of the school, turning around is a breeze. Unfortunately, some impatient parents are turning around in the middle of the street, causing traffic disruptions and potentially endangering our students. Big fire trucks pull off of Topanga Boulevard all the time so they can turn around in our cul-de-sac, and you should too.
P-22 Day & Urban Wildlife Week is Coming to Topanga!
On Thursday October 19th from 4:00 – 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. Given that our school is now a Certified Schoolyard Habitat, our visit will be somewhat of a homecoming for Beth! Please join us on October 19th from 4:00pm-6:30pm to welcome Beth back to our campus! The community IS invited to this special event so PLEASE invite your neighbor!
On Friday, October 20th, Beth Pratt-Bergstrom and others will be speaking briefly to our students during our morning assembly at 8:00 am. Hope to see you there!
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 on Oct. 20th. Your special Boo Grams will be sent creeping to those you chose on Halloween, Oct. 31th. Please put in your request for Boo Grams at the Spirit Booth on campus. Let those people who really freak you out know you are thinking of them! (insert crazy laugh here)
