This is a very important weekend for our school – Shrek Jr. is finally here! With almost half our student body performing, it’s an exciting time for all Topanga Elementary families. I’m looking forward to bringing my wife and son to see the show – we were amazed by the Aladdin extravaganza last year, and I know this year’s show will be a delight.
Shrek Jr., The Musical
If you haven’t purchased your tickets yet, you can still buy them at:
Interested in volunteering? The play still needs help – go to:
And from one of the producers: “Bring cash and an empty stomach; the food will not be hot dogs and burgers, it will be a sumptuous array, a royal feast, you will regret it if you eat before you arrive. The food and libations will be Michelin Star worthy. Plus, don't buy your star his/her bouquet anywhere else except from us because Karen Bovee's bouquets are famed and better than anything you could buy anywhere else (not to mention all of this supports our fundraising efforts.)
Shrek: The Raffle
At each performance of Shrek, raffle tickets will be sold. Some of the prizes will be given at only one performance.
Some of the larger gifts to be raffled include:
Other wonderful gifts include:
It’s Here: The Great American Spellcheck!
Today we kicked off of the Great American Spellcheck! This is a fundraiser that makes sure 100% of the money raised benefits our school and is rooted in academics.
Here’s how it works: Your child studies the grade specific spelling words and collects pledges from family and friends for every word that he or she spells correctly on the Great American SpellCheck test. Your child improves his or her spelling skills and our school enjoys the financial benefits!
We ask that you:
• Help your child learn to correctly spell the Great American SpellCheck study words.
• Indicate your level of support on the Great American SpellCheck pledge form that will be sent home on Monday. Also, ask family and friends to make pledges!
• Ensure that your child returns the pledge form to their teacher no later than Friday, April 1st.
We hope you share our excitement about your child’s participation in the Great American SpellCheck. Together we can encourage strong spelling skills and help our school meet its fundraising needs.
