Sunday Minute – September 8, 2019

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


Thank you PTA!

Thank you to our Fabulous PTA for hosting a great Movie Night!  You all are the hub of our school community! 


Back to School Night- 9/12 @ 5:30-7:15PM

Families, join us this Thursday, September 12th for our Parent Only Back to School Night.  The evening will start in the Auditorium at 5:30PM.  Then, classroom sessions will begin at 6:00PM.  Parent parking will be available on campus.  Please enter using the Superior Street entrance.


Topeka Robotics Team Applications Due 9/13 @ 3:30PM

Students in grades 3, 4, and 5, the Topeka Robotics after school application is due on Friday, September 13th.  Please check the E-Backpack for the application.  You can also download it off of the School Webpage (see the announcement section- top righthand corner on the main page).


Parents, throughout the year, we want you to stay informed about school activities.


Tiger Trot is coming soon.  Mark your calendars for Friday, September 20th


Hoop Fest, Friday, October 4th

Basketball fans!  Topeka Hoopfest is back by popular demand.  The teacher vs. teacher championship game at Shepherd of the Hills, will take place October 4th!  This fierce competition between these teams, will showcase many hidden talents.  Come have dinner and selfie with the stars.  Tickets will be on sale soon!  I wonder if your teacher will be this year’s MVP!


Parents, we also want to inform you of volunteer opportunities directly in your child’s classroom. 


Each classroom teacher is looking for volunteers to act as Room Parents for this year.  The duties of this role vary from teacher to teacher. Please check your child’s folder, to submit your form or you may print the form from the E-Backpack.  There will be a Room Parent meeting this Wednesday September 11th after school in the garden area.   



I’d like to close this Sunday Minute with a great quote, Ms. De La Cera found and shared-


‘Set a goal that makes you want to jump out of bed in the morning.’


That’s it for this week’s news from school.  Have a tigerrific evening.
