Good evening. This is Mrs. Stevens, with this week’s Sunday Minute.

And to round out the week, please be reminded that there is no school on Friday, August 30th.


Parents, we also want to inform you of volunteer opportunities.  A huge need we currently have is for our  Valet Team. The time of service would be anytime between 7:30AM -8:00AM.  If you are willing to invest some of this time for our students, please contact Marissa Croft @  See the eBack-pack for more details on volunteering opportunities. 


Mark your calendars! Topeka Drive PTA Presents the Topeka Tiger Trot on Friday, September 20th.  Come to the ‘Tiger Community Assembly” on Wednesday, September 4th at 8:00AM to learn more about this awesome event and prizes like: Nintendo Switch Lite, Pacific Theaters tickets, Robek’s gift cards, Dave & Busters discounts, Yogurtland, Santa Monica Pacific Park and the Hollywood Wax & Guinness World Record Museum!


Our School-wide Behavior Focus this week will be on our 4 Bes- Be Safe, Be Responsible, Be Respectful and Be Clean!  As a part of Being Safe, our school will implement our fully closed campus procedures starting tomorrow.  Parents please plan for enough time to get through the valet line or to walk your child to the appropriate gates.
