Mr. K’s Corner:
Today marks my 9th day of serving as the new Principal of Topanga Charter Elementary School. I’m very appreciative of the warm welcome and support that I’ve received from the school community. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I want to express how thankful I am to be able to lead such a dynamic school. I hope you all enjoy time with your family over the Thanksgiving Break.
