Parents, I want to thank you for your participation in the recent school events and thank you in advance for your help with the Holiday events to come. With that said I want to remind everyone that younger/older siblings and all other NON-Topeka students are not permitted to participate in class parties and activities that take place during the instructional day. If you plan on volunteering, please make arrangements for childcare.
School Experience Survey Begins October 29th
Thank you to those families that have already turned in their School Experience Survey. Let us know what you think. Let’s beat every school around us and make sure we have the most parents, staff and students participating in the survey this year! Please print your confirmation or return the paper survey to school. When you do, your child’s name will be entered in a prize drawing!
Basketball fans! Topeka Hoopfest is back by popular demand. The teacher vs. teacher championship game at Shepherd of the Hills, will take place November 16th! This fierce competition between the purple team ‘Like Totally Tigers’ and the gold team, ‘Thundercats’ will showcase many hidden talents. Come have dinner and smooshe with the stars. Tickets are on sale now- check the e-Backpack and Thursday folder. Please talk to your room parent about contributing to the bake sale. Monday, players will be revealed along the main corridor. Come see if your teacher ‘got signed’.
PTA- Tiger Trot
PTA would like to thank everyone for your Tiger Trot participation! With your generosity, we were able to raise over $16,000! The funds raised will go towards new technology as well as school programs and supplies. Thank you again!
Students, I am challenging all of you to use your words to spread kindness and encourage one another. If you have nothing good to say about someone, then please say nothing at all. Negative or mean words hurt others, but your positive thoughtful words can make a positive difference in the world.
That’s it for this week’s news from school! Have a tigerrific evening!
