THIS WEEK’S NEWS

Project Cicero Bay Area is At Kittredge This Week!

The Kittredge community is partnering with Project Cicero Bay Area. We are taking part in a children’s book drive designed to create and supplement classroom libraries in schools that desperately need books. Many other San Francisco schools are participating, and together, we hope to collect and distribute thousands of books to over 300 teachers, reaching 10,000 students in need this year.

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.

Middle School Dance at Presidio Hill This Friday, March 8

Permission slips must be received by Thursday morning if your child would like to attend this Friday evening’s dance. It should be a fun time for all… especially for Mr. Young who will be chaperoning.

*******************************************************

Please Complete Your Tuition Agreement By Friday

Enrollment is over (thank you everyone!) and the next step is creating a Tuition Agreement by choosing your payment dates, options, and methods. Last Tuesday, you received an email from TADS with the link. Please complete this step by Friday, March 9.

Thank you to everyone who has already done this. Please let us know if you have any problems or concerns.
