Tassajara Top Dog Kinder & First Grade Combo Class

Hello Top Dog Families,


Halloween was incredible!  The kiddos came beautifully and scarily dressed upready for action!  It was great to see SO many of you at the school parade and our class party!  Pure excitement for the day!


Many thanks to give!  Thank you to our incredible room parents, Loni Castaldini and Sue Fisher!  They orchestrated a party fit for princesses, ninjas, the Swat team, Bat Girl, and many, many more!  Even a cowgirl! Thank you for the great decorations and putting together a food spread that included Monster eyed grapes, Halloween Cuties, Ghost String Cheese, Cupcakes and both Round and Square (Spookley) Pumpkin Waffles and more!  Kinders were able to take home their Pumpkin Clay Projects today!  Thank you to our Clay Docent and helpers!  (Don’t worry First Grade, your projects are going home at a different time for a special reason!)


Thank you to all parents for attending our festivities, sending in food/supplies for the party and for joining us at the party!  The kiddos had plenty of Halloween activities and games to enjoy, with many parents to help!  Thank You! Thank You!   This class and parent group is so supportive.  It makes for a great year for all!      


Please feel free to upload any pics you have taken today or throughout the year to our class Shutterfly account.  If you have not received info on this, please contact Loni!  I will put mine on our account this week!
