Sunday Minute – December 15, 2019

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


5th Grade PTA Committee- Jamba Juice Cards

If you are in need of a last minute gift idea, the PTA 5th Grade Committee is selling Jamba Juice discount cards 12/16-12/18.  Order forms were sent home and some are available in the office. 


No- Non-Topeka Siblings at Classroom Parties

Parents, as you plan to participate in the classroom parties, please note that because we prioritize student safety, non-Topeka siblings unfortunately will not be permitted to participate in the classroom celebrations during the school day.  Please plan ahead for childcare of younger siblings as our office staff will enforce this policy. 


Friday Robotics ended- Next Semester Computer Wise

The Friday Topeka Robotics after school collaboration with Granada Hills Charter High School has ended.  There will be no Robotics this Friday.  Next semester’s after school robotics opportunities will be provided by Computer Wise- a parent paid program.  Please see the up-coming e-Backpack for details.


Attendance Matters

As we approach Winter Break, I want to remind everyone that every instructional minute matters.  Part of our mission at Topeka is to provide your child with a comprehensive and rigorous instructional program.  In order to do that thoroughly, we need all students at school on time, every day, all day.  So we look forward to seeing which classrooms will win popcorn parties for 100% attendance!


SWPBIS- Respect

Families, let’s work together to teach these young Topeka Tigers that respect is necessary in person, in text messages, and on any other communication platform. Mean joking, inappropriate language, and talking badly about one another via messaging is not caring and it doesn’t represent our families well.  Let’s look for and focus on the greatness in one another!


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