Kittredge Konnection – April 24, 2018

Screen Free Week is In Progress!

We hope that many of our students and families are joining the fun and taking the challenge to turn off their screens for 7 consecutive days.

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.

Looking Ahead…

High School Information Night for 7thGrade Parents is May 10 at 6pm

All 7thgrade parents are invited and strongly encouraged to attend this informational meeting about the high school application process. Now is a great time to begin talking as a family about goals and plans for high school. Don’t let the admissions process become overwhelming. Come and get some basic information to help you start planning for this next step in your child’s education.

Students will get a lot of support for this process next year, so this meeting is for parents only.

RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Staff Development Day is May 18; No School

Please note that we have a teacher development day scheduled next month. This will be a workday for teachers but there will be no classes. Extended Day will be open during the hours of 8:00am to 6:00pm for 5 students or more.

There is Still Some Space Available in Summer School

Our 5-week program begins on June 18 and goes until July 20. Mornings are designed to keep students active and their grade level skills strong. The afternoons offer a variety of free play and structured activities. If you are interested, applications are available in the office or you can download one from our website.

Some space is still available for students who are entering 1stgrade through 8thgrade.
