Community Announcements

Holiday Happening –  Thursday, December 15 from 6:30pm – 8:00pm

All families are invited to attend Kittredge School’s annual Holiday Happening!  Please save the date and mark your calendars now to make sure you don’t miss this wonderful event.  For those new to Kittredge, Holiday Happening is a beloved Kittredge tradition to celebrate the holidays together before everyone heads off for Winter Break.  This year it will be held both indoors at school as well as outdoors in the courtyard. Please look out for a formal invite to be sent through Paperless Post later this month. While RSVPs are not required, it would help immensely with our planning.

There will be fun crafts, games, and activities for all!

Take photos and create special memories in a photo booth!

Come enjoy delicious treats and drinks!

We’ll close with our traditional Kittredge holiday sing-along at 8pm!

As always, a festive time will be had by all!

Volunteers needed! This is a volunteer-run event and we can’t have it without your help.  We could use help with supervising the crafts and games, setting up, or cleaning up at the end of the evening. No tasks during the event itself take more than 30 minutes of your time, so you can help out and still enjoy the party! If interested, or if you have any questions, contact Riva Gokhale at  rivar924@gmail.com. Thank you for contributing to this fun filled evening!

See’s Candies Yum-Raiser ends this Friday, 12/2!

If you haven’t done so yet, please visit the KPA See’s Storefront to order delicious treats for your family and friends, all the while supporting a good cause, the Kittredge Parents Association (KPA). Feel free to also share the link with others; orders can be placed and delivered across the country. If you have any questions, please contact Lisa at lisa.h.wong@gmail.com.
