Sunday Minute – April 1, 2018

Good evening, families! This is Mrs. Stevens, Principal of Topeka, with this week’s Sunday Minute!


Mark your calendars for the 80’s FAMILY DANCE Friday, April 13th 5:30pm-8:00pm

Do you remember what it was like to be at a party in the 1980’s?  Well, mark your calendars because you will get to relive the 80’s fun, on Friday, April 13th!  From 5:30pm- 6:15pm we will begin our Family Dance with a sensory friendly kickoff and then continue the festivities until 8:00PM.  Tickets are $20 per family and will be available for purchase this week.  Please check the e-backpack for more specific details.


ScholarShare 529 Scholar Dollars Contest

Thank you to everyone who voted for us on the Scholarshare website.  Unfortunately, we didn’t win, but we did record over 1000 votes. Next time we will need much more to win and I am confident that we can.  Thank you again for your efforts and support.


PBIS- Be Safe—

Parents please remember that the teacher’s lot is not a drop off or loading zone.  Please use the valet or other marked parking areas.  Only those with a valid handicap placard should be parking in the teachers’ lot in a handicap marked space.


NO SCHOOL MONDAY, April 2nd – Ceasar Chavez Day

Please be reminded that there is no school tomorrow, Monday April 2nd in honor of Ceasar Chavez Day. 


Auditorium Closed, Tuesday April 3rd- Special Elections-

Tuesday, April 3rd is a special election day and therefore our auditorium will be used for community voting only.  In addition, Governance Council Committee meetings will be rescheduled for Tuesday, April 17th. 


Principals of the Day- Wednesday, April 4th  Damien & Gabriel Ho

This Wednesday let’s welcome, Damien and Gabriel Ho as our Principals of the Day!


Kinder Tour- Friday, April 6th at 8:30AM

Friday, we will be hosting a Kinder tour for families anticipating enrolling a Kindergartener and any interested Lottery families.  Tell a friend and see you at the tour on Friday, April 6th at 8:30AM.


Attendance Matters!

Families, your child’s attendance matters for many reasons.  The number one reason is that for every minute and/or day that your child is absent, there is an accumulation of instruction missed.  Let’s work together to take good care and be at school all day every day.


I leave you with this quote to inspire our Kindness Heroes- One KIND word can change someone’s entire day!  How many days will you brighten this week?


That’s it for this week’s news from school!  Have a tigerrific evening!
