Sunday Minute – February 2, 2020
Happy Big Game Sunday, families! This is Mrs. Stevens, with this week’s Sunday Minute.
We have received many questions recently about the coronavirus, and I would like to provide you with the latest information. There are no confirmed cases of the coronavirus in our school community.
Also, the L.A. County Department of Public Health reports that there is no immediate public threat in Los Angeles.
It is important for adults to model calm behavior and to remind children to wash their hands regularly, which is the most effective method of protecting against diseases during the flu season. Thank you for working with us to maintain healthy, calm, and safe learning environments for our children.
This week’s events are as follows:
Wednesday, Februray 5th PTA Executive Board Member Meeting.
Thursday, February 6th Parents, please join me for Coffee with the Principal- we will talk about our plans for a Computer Lab teacher, budget, your questions, comments, or concerns. We hope to welcome Board Member Schmerelson into our conversation as well.
The Topeka Drive PTA Nominating Committee is beginning the process of nominating individuals for the 202-2021 school year PTA Executive board. The PTA needs you! Please look for the nominating forms in the e-Backpack and the hard copy sent home with your children.
Mark Your Calendar- FAMILY DANCE FEBRUARY 21
Families, please mark your calendar for our annual FAMILY DANCE, Friday, February 21st. The party begins in a sensory friendly way at 5:30PM. This year there will be a Western Theme, so get your boots, hats and mosey on down.
Family Dance- Silent Auction
Because the dance is soon approaching we could use your help getting some amazing donations to help raise money for our school. Do you own a restaurant or food service? Do you have season tickets, a vacation home or time share-or do you have tickets to a theater or sporting event? If you answered yes to any of these questions and would like to donate to the silent auction, please contact Mrs. Jennifer Grooms at Ptaroomparent@topekadrive.com.
SWPBIS- Safety-Kindergarten Yard is CLOSED after school
Everyone please note that the Kindergarten yard is closed after school. There should be no one playing on the Kinder yard after school.
I’d like to end this week’s news with a quote from one of our parents, Mrs. Cristina Gonzalez. ‘If you have the power, use your power to Empower others’
That’s it for this week’s news from school. Have a tigerrific evening.
