Mountain Mail: 12/17/18

Dear Friends,

Here we are in the last school days of the calendar year. Despite all the challenges of this last month we made it! As this year comes to a close another year full of its own adventures will be waiting for us! Bring it on 2019!!

My last epic Mountain Mail never made it to the page and instead this photo heavy montage will tell the story. I am looking forward to seeing you all Wednesday where I can thank you all in person for all you do.

Wednesday - our last day of school for 2018!!

During the day student will be at campus full of festive spirit. There is no mesa so regular times and school carpool hours apply for Topanga.

Gift Exchange ~ Students will also exchange gifts. Please make sure your child remembers to bring theirs so everyone has one. Presents should be wrapped and then placed in plain old bags so we can't see who shows up with which. Remind your child not to write their your own name on the gift. A huge part of the fun is guessing who brought it for you!!

Wednesday evening: Art Show and Holiday Party ~ 6pm onwards

Canoga Park Youth Art Center ~ 7222 Remmet Avenue, Canoga Park. 

I hope you all have received the Potluck Sign-up Genius from Lori and have added your name. The art show and party is a lovely way to round out the calendar year. So looking forward to seeing everyone there.

Winter Break: Thurs Dec. 19th - Wed Jan. 2nd.

School resumes Thursday January 3rd.

The last couple of weeks in photos…..

Friday: Hammer Museum and The Fowler!

Plenty of rainy lunch time fun - inside and outside!! Jumping in puddles, dancing in the rain, board games, cards and puzzles!!

Delicious food - a perfect lunch for warming hearts and feeding bodies!!

Community Potluck - such a great time!!

So grateful for such GENEROSITY.

Thank you for your gifts to give back and your spirit to uplift.

Final Wednesday on the Mesa - Toasting with our mugs we made in ceramics

Final friday: annenberg space for photography

Well candid TMS photo taking wasn’t happening at this exhibit - but everyone took a photo kissing their favorite animal. Ask your child to show you theirs - they all sent them to their gmails. We’ll finish off with a picture of our lovely Liz and a hippo!
