Kittredge Konnection – November 30, 2021

THIS WEEK’S NEWS

You’re Pretty Sweet – Great Work Kittredge

 We are in the last week of our See’s Candy fundraiser and we have already raised $705 for the KPA from just 27 families. Order online and have chocolate treats delivered directly to your home. Use this link to purchase holiday gifts all the while supporting a good cause, the Kittredge Parents Association.  This is the last week to get your soft-centers, milk chocolates, dark chocolates, or nuts and chews.  

I don’t know about you, but chocolate covered, peppermints are calling my name. Questions?  Contact Ms. Pon-Barry, ponbarry@kittredge.org. This Yum-raiser ends on December 3rd.

DECEMBER NEWS

Parent Teacher Conferences, December 9 and 10 

Thank you for signing up for parent teacher conferences.  If you have not signed up for a conference we will mail your child’s report card to you.  If you have missed a conference sign up, please contact your child’s teacher.  If you will be joining us for conferences, please make sure we have your most up to date vaccine information

Thursday December 9th and and Friday December 10th are minimum days with noon dismissals. School will be dismissed at noon and conferences will be from 12:30 to 5 on both days. 

A google dismissal form will be emailed.  Please let us know where to dismiss your child at noon on those days. You will be able to register your child in to Extended Day for the afternoon or you can drop off your child, for no charge, while you attend your conference.

Zoom conferences can also be arranged on the teacher’s sign up request. After you choose your preferences, please let them know that you prefer the conference to be virtual instead of in person.

Spirit Day – December 16th

Student council has chosen “Pajama Day” to be the next school spirit day this year. Please help your child celebrate this spirit day by dressing in cozy pajamas for the day.  Robes and slippers may also be worn, but appropriate shoes for P.E. should be packed in a backpack, if not worn.
