Thank You, Families!

Teachers felt the Kittredge love last week. Thank you for the food that filled our bellies and warmed our hearts. It feels wonderful to be appreciated and we felt your caring consideration last week more than ever. Thank you for bringing this positive spirit to our community. We are pretty lucky to have you as our Kittredge Family. Thank you.
