Spring break is here – ten consecutive days without school (if you count weekends and Cesar Chavez Day on Monday the 28th). In addition to resting and visiting with friends and family, Topanga students know they have other activities to keep their brains from getting rusty over the vacation:
Friday, April 1st - Great American Spellcheck Test Day! (Pledge Forms Due)
The Great American Spellcheck is coming - two weeks from today on Friday, April 1st! We hope that our students have been successful so far in collecting pledges from family and friends for the words they spell correctly on the spellcheck test. Remember, 100 % of the money raised for this fund-raiser goes directly into our school programs!
Our students have two more weeks to collect pledges and study for the test. All pledge forms need to be returned to the teachers by the test day - Friday, April 1st. Once the test is over, the graded tests and pledge forms will go back home so the funds can be collected (donations are due by April 13th).
Trophies will be given to the top fund-raiser per class (these students will also need to have performed well on the test), dog tag medals will be given out to the top spellers, everyone who participates will receive a certificate, and one student will receive a one year on-line subscription to Encyclopedia Britannica Kids. We will also be throwing a party for the class that raises the most money for our school, and awarding the class (grades 1-5) with the highest grade average and the class with the best participation.
Thank you for helping your child collect pledges and study for the test!!!
