Sunday Minute – October 7, 2018
Good evening families, this is Mrs. Stevens, with this week’s Sunday Minute!
Topeka Family, Spirit week is here!
Monday – Moustache Monday
Tuesday- Twin Day Tuesday
Wednesday- Wacky Wear Wednesday (mix match clothes)
Thursday- Jersey Thursday
Friday- Tiger Friday (wear your Topeka Tiger T-shirts)
Walk to School Day – Wednesday, 10/10
Walk to school day is just a few days away. If you normally drive and can actually walk, please join us and make Wednesday a day you enjoy with the kids and get your steps in early. If you normally drive, try parking a couple of blocks away and walking the rest of the way to school. Again this year, 4th grade will be meeting on Vanalden and Labrador to make the walk together, wearing their sneakers and smiles!!
Tiger Trot is this Friday. Please come out and help set up, clean up, record keep, serve popsicles and cheer for our little Tigers! Please check in with your room parent to see if your classroom still needs water or an ‘easy up’. If you have MC skills, please contact Mrs. Van Der Valk or Miss Tammy. Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Special thanks to the family of Nathaniel T., along with Damien and Gabriel H. for donating to our Character Counts Treasure box. Your partnership in this is priceless!
This week we will continue to work on RESPONSIBILITY. Let’s focus on our thoughts and actions. I leave you with this abridged quote. Be strong but not rude, be bold but don’t bully, be proud but not arrogant, advocate but don’t blame, value yourself, but think of others before yourself.
That’s it for this week’s news from school! Have a tigerrific evening!
