Speech & Language: Initial /s/. We will make sailboats and our snack of celery sticks will be provided by Brodie!
Book Fair: Our annual school Book Fair will begin this Friday. It is a wonderful opportunity to shop for books and support our school library at the same time. Books make fantastic holiday gifts!
Room K Rocks!
Room K is your entrance into Topanga Elementary School and for many of you, the first time to get involved in our school community. We all contribute extra time and energy to make our school the best it can be. I do my part too! Did you know that I co-sponsor the Topanga Elementary School Newspaper Club? Our first issue of the Mini-Messenger will be published by The Messenger (Topanga's newspaper) this month! The 5th grade students have been hard at work reporting on school events! I also serve on the Garden/School Climate Committee which meets the first Tuesday each month after school. Our own Carolyn Day has already helped by writing and being awarded a grant of $1500 for our school garden! I am on the school Leadership Council and chair the School Site Council too.
Thank you all for doing all you are able to do to help.
