    Join TOPS Site Council

    TOPS Site Council is similar to a PTA. It is made up of parent representatives, school staff, and an Eastlake community representative.

    Site Council meetings are open to all parents and caregivers of TOPS students. You can join meetings via Zoom, phone, or give feedback by emailing your grade band representative.

    The next Site Council meeting is Wednesday, September 16th 6pm- 7:30pm. Your grade band representative will email the Zoom link. All meetings provide ASL interpreters. Other language interpreters are available with advanced notice.

    If you have questions about Site Council or are interested in joining, please email the Site Council Secretary at 

    Volunteers are the reason TOPS has so many fantastic programs, activities and strong classroom support! Volunteering helps build a sense of community and is a great way to get to know the families, teachers and staff at TOPS. We hope you will find a way to get involved at TOPS this year that feels valuable to you and your family.
