Sunday Minute – May 20, 2018

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


Positive Behavior Intervention Supports

Parents, as we only have a few weeks of school left, please know that your parenting partnership is much appreciated and needed.  Join us as we teach and reinforce that each student has the responsibility for his/her own actions and/or choices no matter the behavior of others.  All choices have consequences, so let’s continue to teach these elementary students how to make good choices so that good consequences follow.  Let us team together to prepare them for the reality of the real world, in that bad choices will have negative consequences.  If each person works to make good choices, then we all benefit from good consequences and a safe learning environment.     


Principals of the Day- Tuesday 5/22 

Tuesday, let’s welcome, Joann and Anthony as our Principals of the Day!

PTA Dine Out- The Stand Wednesday 5/23

Join us this Wednesday for our final PTA Dine out at The Stand from 3:00-9:00PM.  Let’s get together one more time as a Topeka family and enjoy some good food.
