Boogie Shoes

Dancing the Night Away

Thank you student council, Ms. Gules, Ms. Mara, Kevin, Ms. Rose, Mr. Young and Ms. Pon-Barry for hosting a fun evening last Friday. And thank you middle schoolers for being so great!

Our middle school students were able to walk the red carpet, get down with their friends and laugh the night away under cover of balloons and glow sticks. We couldn’t have been happier seeing them celebrating together… it’s been such a long time! Thank you for a fun Friday night!

THIS WEEK’S NEWS

Principals for a Day

You may notice that Ms. Pon-Barry looks younger tomorrow. Are you in fact seeing double? For tomorrow only we have two new principals at the helm. Please welcome Principals for a Day, Cerys and Sabina Cherny. These ladies will be in charge tomorrow so please be on your best behavior.  Thank you Cerys and Sabina for the time!

What a Star – Auditions are in Progress!  

Auditions for the talent show are taking place this week. If your child is planning to perform an individual act, they will audition tomorrow during lunch recess if they did not audition yesterday.  If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call at school or email ponbarry@kittredge.org

NEXT WEEK’S NEWS 

Screen Free Week – May 2 to May 9

You are invited to participate in an unplugged week! Join us as we turn off our screens and dive into a range of other activities. Rediscover board games, toss a football, start a puzzle, and cozy up to a good book! We sometimes need a reminder of how much time we have and turning off TV and electronic devices is a great way to find that. The idea is to replace electronics with other options for entertainment. Electronics may be used for school assignments as usual. Screen free week begins May 2 and runs to May 9.  

Please let us know if your child completes the challenge by returning a form of completion. We will host an ice cream celebration on Friday, May 13 for students who go screen-free for all 7 days. Give it a try!

Seventh Grade Parent High School Information Night – May 17 @ 6:00pm

All parents of 7th graders are invited (and strongly encouraged) to meet with Mr. Young to hear about the admissions process for High School. Now is a great time to begin organizing your calendar with dates and details so there will be less stress in the Fall! Students will have a lot of support next year so this meeting is for parents only.

Please mark your calendar for May 23 at 3pm.  The Kittredge talent show will be at the Jerry Garcia Amphitheater in McLaren Park. Students will have a 12pm dismissal on May 23 allowing time for families to join us for class and individual acts. If you anticipate your child being absent from this event for any reason, please notify the school in advance. It should be a fun afternoon.  You won’t want to miss it!
