Sunday Minute – April 15, 2018

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



THANK YOU so much to the PTA team and volunteers that put on such a fun and well organized family dance.  It warmed my heart to see our students, teachers and parents enjoying themselves! 


Kindergarten and TK enrollment packets now available

Parents, it’s time to pick up your Kindergarten or TK enrollment packets. Please come to the office with your child’s birth certificate and your proof of residency (ex. DWP or gas bill) to receive your enrollment packet.  It is to your advantage to pick up the enrollment packet and turn it in sooner rather than later.

Heads up

Parents, just a heads up that the Take Your Child to Work Day ages are 8-18.  A letter explaining this opportunity for children ages 8-18 was sent home along with the paperwork needed to receive an ‘excused’ absence for the day.     


I leave you with this quote to inspire our Kindness Heroes- Kindness is free.  Sprinkle that stuff EVERYWHERE!
