It was a good week here at Topanga Elementary – our 3rd & 5th graders finished the big state test, and we had an incredible Open House last night. All the rooms were full of families, student work and lots of excitement. It was great seeing so many of you as your children proudly showed you the work they’ve done this school year.
Congratulations to all the students who participated in the Topanga Safety Art contest. I’m glad we got a chance to honor your efforts this morning at our assembly.
Have you visited the Lost and Found lately? Better hurry – the clothes are beginning to outnumber the hangers, and in three weeks it will all be gone (donated to a good cause). There are plenty of lunch boxes and water bottles as well . . . take a look!
Please be reminded that spell-a-thon pledges need to be collected and turned in to the school by Friday, May 24th.
