Learn More about TOPICS - We Need You!
Posted on 09/28/2016

What is it?  TOPICS is a 30+ year tradition at TOPS and a big part of what makes this school special. Approximately once a month, parent volunteers, community members and teachers lead a 2-hour class on a subject that is a passion, skill or interest of theirs to a small group of mixed 1st-5th graders. Baseball and Stats, Comic Drawing, Theater Games, Aerodynamics, National Parks…these are just a few examples of past TOPICS.

How does it work?  Come see Kathy and Katie (Your TOPICS parent coordinators) at the Ice Cream Social TOPICS table on October 2nd, 1-4 and we will share our experiences.
Even better, find out from expert teachers how to craft your own TOPIC at:

TOPICS Information Night
