This Week’s News
Thank you to the KPA!
This year’s Spring Social was a BLAST thanks to our amazing KPA representatives! Teachers, parents, and even grandparents gathered together for a night of food, family, and fun! Congratulations to the raffle prize winners and brand new owners of incredible student-made art pieces. We’re already excited for next year’s social!
Habit of Mind: Persisting
“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not… Genius will not… Education will not… Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”
– Calvin Coolidge
Whether it is a difficult school subject, a missed job opportunity, or just a cold, rainy day where it feels especially difficult to get out the door, persisting in spite of your circumstances is crucial to continuing to grow, develop, and succeed in life.
Let’s Go Coyotes!
Yesterday our Varsity Team showed tremendous sportsmanship and spirit in their futsal game against SF Friends, and we couldn’t be more proud of them!
The last game for our Junior Varsity Academy Team will be this Thursday, April 6, at 4:45pm. The game will be against Burkes, and held at Burkes.
Lights, Kittredge, Action!
Tomorrow, Wednesday, April 5, Kittredge turns into a Hollywood studio for Movie Character Day. We can’t wait to see our school full of princesses, superheroes, and more!
