October is National Bullying Prevention Month. Teasing or name calling might seem like fun at first, but the fun ends when we realize that someone else’s feelings have been hurt. Let’s work together to ensure that Topanga Elementary is always a safe place to work and play by always treating each other with respect. Remember – children are watching.
There is school on Monday. I realized that many parents were confused about this coming Monday because some other school districts are closed on Monday for Columbus Day. Our school district, however, has not observed Columbus Day for many years.
TOPANGA ELEMENTARY FALL VARIETY SHOW & ART WALK -
DATE: FRIDAY 2ND NOVEMBER
Thank you to all the performers who ran thru their acts today at the submissions session! We have the makings of a wonderful, jam-packed variety show - it’s going to be a really fun night!
In addition to the performance in the auditorium, we will be showing off Topanga Elementary students from all grades' beautiful visual artworks - paintings, drawings, pottery, Lego sculptures etc. in a specially curated 'art walk' from the playground up to the auditorium - beginning with a brand new section of the Topanga Elementary playground mosaic made in collaboration with this week's fantastic science committee project. We would LOVE every child to contribute something to the show and be part of something positive and fun that will also raise funds for TEP.
Artwork submissions on the theme of “Celestial and Terrestrial Stars" are encouraged! We will be gathering all students’ art in the week running up to the show. Projects can be made at school or home. We will be encouraging the audience to bring flashlights to view the art - so glitters, glow in the dark and fluoro media are encouraged!! Submissions from groups, duos & solo artists are also welcome.
** PARENT VOLUNTEERS - YOUR HELP IS NEEDED**
We’d love your help with concessions, staging, lighting, sound, ticketing etc. for the show itself. Please register here if you can help! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090E48A8A92EA4FA7-fall
