There is a real sense of family at Kittredge School. You see it as classes high five each other as they pass on the street. You see it as the 8th graders read to their Kindergarten buddies. You see it on the playground every day.
Small classes allow us to accommodate our students’ needs in numerous ways. We nurture the academic skills necessary to succeed in school as well as the habits necessary to make good decisions. Our dedicated faculty and small class size provide the support necessary to ensure success in the classroom and in life outside of school.
We hope that many of our students and families will join the fun and turn off their screens for 7 consecutive days. You can begin on Saturday, Sunday or Monday and continue for 7 days in a row… as long as the 7th day is completed by Monday, April 30.
For entertainment, participants are able to read, daydream, explore, enjoy nature, and spend time with family and friends. This annual celebration gives children, families, schools and communities a chance to turn off screens and turn on life.
Screens can still be used for homework and business but not for entertainment. The idea of this week is to find and enjoy other means of amusement and socializing for seven days.
