We would like to send a special Thank You shout out to our Red Robin Issaquah and Hop Jack’s in Klahanie for providing a kids meal as the week 4 prize.

It's Caring Through Sharing time! - December 2-5
Cascade Ridge will once again be collecting much needed holiday gifts for Issaquah families in need. We will be partnering with the Issaquah Food Bank to help fill their Holiday Gift Barn. The Food Bank will be setting up a 'store' where families in need can shop for needed items and holiday gifts. Each classroom with be assigned a theme. You can bring in an item from that theme, OR donate a gift card for groceries, OR donate gift wrapping supplies. This is of course optional, I know many families have other groups they help and support. Look for information and details coming in November from your Classroom Caring Through Sharing Rep. Donations will be collected in the classroom the week of December 2-5. Donations need to be new and unwrapped. If you have any questions please contact Chrisann Penz chrisannpenz@yahoo.com
