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 are pleased that Kittredge will again be partnering with Project Cicero Bay Area, the children’s book drive that brings much needed books to the classrooms and libraries of under-resourced public schools in the Bay Area. These past three years, families from our school, together with those from other participating San Francisco schools, donated nearly 50,000 books. The book drive distributed these books to nearly 400 teachers, reaching over 15,000 students in need.
The book drive is scheduled to run from Friday, February 28 through Thursday, March 5. We ask families to drop off their child(ren)’s outgrown, gently-used pleasure reading books in the designated boxes during these four days. Members of the book drive’s organizing committee will pick up the books on Friday, March 8, and bring them to a distribution site. Invited public school teachers from these under-resourced schools (Title 1 Funded) will come to a book fair on Saturday, March 9 and select books for their classrooms. The entire book drive will be done within one week.
Books in need are: Beginning Readers, Picture Books, Board Books, Early and Middle Grade Chapter Books, Young Adult Fiction, Graphic Novels, Classic Literature, Geography/History, Multicultural Literature, Biographies, Poetry, Plays/Drama, Up-to-date Reference.
Please no Adult Books or textbooks.
