Sunday Minute – February 23, 2020
Good evening, families! This is Mrs. Stevens, with this week’s Sunday Minute.
Big Western Thank You to our PTA, and all of the volunteers that made our annual family dance a BIG success! Thank you for loving our kids like you do. Check out some pictures of the fun on our Instagram page @topekachartersas.
5th grade parents, in preparation for the up-coming Pali Trip, I’d like to take a moment to discuss some current concerns and expectations for our 5th graders. Please join me Thursday, February 27th at 8:00am in the library. The expected duration of this meeting is a brief 30 mins.
Thursday: 2/27-GATE/Gifted parent workshop @ 8:30am in the library (approx. 1 hour)
Friday: 2/28-Please join us in the Topeka library for a little art, culture, and community @
8:30am (approx. 1 hour 15 minutes) Coffee and light refreshments will be served. Parents are also invited to come and sit for a reading for the students, during recess immediately following the workshop.
Mark your calendars- Thursday, March 19th at 8:30am we will have a parent workshop that is for sure worth taking the time from work (approx.. 1 hour 15 minutes). At this workshop one of our School Mental Health Professionals will be presenting ways to address your child’s social emotional needs. Sometimes first aid isn’t a bandage, sometimes the first aid is you; how you look, listen and link your child to helpful strategies and resources for their success in the world.
SWPBIS- Cyber Safety-
One way to protect your children from the dangers technology can bring is to monitor their text messages, group chats, and frequently used apps regularly.
That’s it for this week’s news from school. Have a tigerrific evening.
