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:
