It’s December in Topanga, which means it’s freezing cold first thing in the morning, and by recess it’s hot again. While it’s nice to have weather that really changes, this temperature pattern seems to lead to our students arriving at school with jackets and sweaters which are then shed at recess, and often left and forgotten on the playground. The solution: make sure to label your child’s clothing so it can be easily identified and pay a visit to our lost and found (to the right of our morning assembly stage). There are many nice items that our students should be using during the winter break – and everyone has two more weeks to claim them before the holidays.
Our student council had a terrific first meeting on Wednesday, and this morning we were treated to a skit to let us know about their upcoming plans for an anti-littering and revamped recycling program. On top of that, we have a group of parents led by Bridget Gardner who have started cleaning up on the first Tuesday of the month (“Trashy Tuesday”), weather permitting. Interested in joining?

Candy Cane Lane Hot Cocoa Stand and Bake Sale
Candy Cane Lane holiday lights and decorations has been a tradition in Woodland Hills since 1952. Every year, thousands of visitors come to the College Acres neighborhood between Winnetka to Corbin and the 101 Freeway to Oxnard. Last year alone there were over 12,000 check ins.
Mid-December to Christmas is bumper to bumper traffic with families in the spirit to see the lights. One of our Topanga Elementary families decorates and lives in this neighborhood, and is kindly offering their home to raise money for Topanga Elementary. We need help from each class to make this fundraiser a success. The theme this year will be Frozen, and we plan to have available hot cocoa and baked goods as well as a live Anna and Elsa photo op for donations. Please come enjoy the holiday spirit and help us with this fantastic way to raise money for our school. Parking for the event is on Martha Street facing Corbin for an easy exit. Donate your time, and then enjoy the lights!
Location: 5654 Oakdale Ave, Woodland Hills
When: Dec 6th, Dec 12th & Dec 13th 6-9pm
