It’s hard to believe we only have three more weeks of school – and still so much to do.
If you haven’t picked up your Science Fair project yet, please retrieve it from the auditorium after school today. Next week we will be relocating the remaining project to make room for the Spring Orchestra Concert on Monday.
Next week’s Friday morning assembly will be one you won’t want to miss – we will be having a live musical performance (a foretaste of Topanga Days), not to mention the Science Fair certificates and awards and a special presentation involving the Girl Scouts for the good work they’ve done for our community. See you there!
Dear Transitional Kindergarten Parents Past, Present and Future
Governor Brown’s most recently submitted revised budget would eliminate Transitional Kindergarten (TK) in the state of California in the 2017 school year. Children with birth dates after September 1 (currently September 1-December 1) would not be permitted into Kindergarten in 2017, leaving thousands of children out of TK and left out of the system for a full school year. If your child has benefitted from TK, you know how vital this program is for Kindergarten and later school success.
Please take a moment to let legislators know this is a mistake! Take action by signing the petition online and pass this along to your neighbors and friends throughout California: http://action.earlyedgecalifornia.org/site/Advocacy?pagename=homepage&id=437 or Read more about this and listen to a recent KPCC story here: http://www.scpr.org/news/2016/05/13/60624/governor-s-revised-budget-moves-ahead-with-elimina/
A Discount Code for Galileo Innovation (Science) Camp for Kids
One of the sponsors of this year’s Science Fair is Galileo Innovation Camp for Kids – a science-based summer camp. In addition to providing materials and prizes, they have also given us a code that you can use to get a discount if you are enrolling your child online for their summer camp. The code is 2016INNOVATEDLA.
Have a Great Weekend!
