Join us for an evening of delicious food, live music, and a raffle with amazing prizes. This year we are excited to celebrate the Tassajara One Room School Class of 1946, the last class to attend the school. It is particularly meaningful to acknowledge the Class of 1946 as an integral part of the Living History of the San Ramon Valley. Our history is all around us and they are an important part of that historical tapestry.

This year the evening’s activities will include:

  • Delicious outdoor dinner served under the majestic black walnut trees planted by generations of students
  • Wine, beer and other beverages
  • Live jazz music by Brother Khalil and friends
  • Tour of the schoolhouse by a docent in period wardrobe
  • A commemorative check-in photo
  • Unique artifacts from the museum’s collections
  • Raffle with exciting prizes all to support our educational programs and exhibits 

This year's special guest and MC will be KTVU Sportscaster/Reporter Joe Fonzi.

Tassajara One Room School Program

Every spring third graders from throughout the San Ramon Valley have the opportunity to participate in a living history program at the schoolhouse. School marms and school masters conduct an authentic 1888 school day. 

In a program designed by Mistress and former teacher Joan Kurtz, the students use slates, learn to cipher, recite from a McGuffey Reader and play nineteenth century games. They dress in period clothes, tie their horses in the stable and eat farm lunches.

Enjoy this video showing the ORS program!
