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.
The KPA has invited Mary G. Burke, MD, to speak and lead a discussion on media use and children. She is an expert in the neurological and behavioral effects of screen use by children and adolescents. Dr. Burke is associate clinical professor in the department of child and adolescent psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco, and coordinator, Pediatric Mental Health and the Environment, Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Unit, University of California, San Francisco.
Please join us to learn more. She will help us understand the benefits of screen-free week that Kittredge engages in each spring. Thank you to Anna Semina for suggesting the speaker and facilitating the event. More details will follow.
