Good evening. This is Mrs. Stevens, with this week’s Sunday Minute.
Wow! What a wonderful game! The competition was fierce and the fun was amazing. Thank you to Mr. Chester Kido, Mrs. Shawna Streb, Mr. Kim, Mrs. Hamlin, all of our teacher athletes, Spirit Squad, the Topeka Dance team, and all of the selfless volunteers that made Hoop Fest the game of the year!

Tiger Trot Updates
Thank you for your support and helping Topeka’s Tiger Trot event reach our fundraising goal! We were able to fundraise a little over $21,000 to subside part of the educational and enrichment programs we have here. Our two classroom winners were Room 1- Mrs. Nichols and room 31- Mrs. Whelan. The Tiger Trot rewards will continue throughout the month of October. This Thursday, October 10th all students who fundraised at the $100 and $200 level will attend the Neon Glow DJ Dance Party from 1:15-2:15PM, and there we will find out who wins the Golden Ticket.
Our School-wide Behavior Focus this week will be on Being Clean. If you see something that needs to be thrown away or put in the Lost and Found, please take care of it. If we all pitch in our school will always be beautiful!
*Parents, please note that the instructional day begins at 8:00am- any student arriving after 8:00 is tardy and any student arriving after 8:15am MUST be signed in at the office by the parent.
That’s it for this week’s news from school. Have a tigerrific evening.
