Tawanka Times


Mrs. Geers, Mrs. Neff, Ms. Trotta and Mrs. S rotated amongst kindergarten rooms at the end of November to enjoy a new experience. Each teacher created a November themed activity for the classes. Activities included: water color paints, a cornucopia craft, Hide the Turkey/STEM building and a Turkey craft. It was a great opportunity to get to know new faces!

Thank you so much for supporting our first Tawanka Family Pasta Dinner! Your generosity in supplying all of those delicious desserts was a great help! We served almost 300 meals and fun was had by all. The donations ensured that our families facing tough times will have a happy holiday season.

We would also like to thank our Tawanka families for all the generous food donations we received. We were able to make 15 Thanksgiving baskets along with extra items for future meals. We truly have a very generous community at Tawanka!

Thank you for your continued support!!
