Kittredge Konnection – October 26, 2021

Halloween Edition

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

Thank You KPA

Thank you to Michelle and Trae Stephens (Thad and Tsali’s parents) for hosting the Kittredge Parent Association Social last Thursday evening. With drinks, food, no rain, and wonderful company it really couldn’t have been better. 

The raffle drawing was fun entertainment as well as a successful event in itself. Thank you, Tom Vilhauer.

And of course thank you to every Kittredge School parent, whether or not you attended, because each of you create the KPA. Your support of your children and the school are evident every day. For those who couldn’t make it, we hope to celebrate with you next time!

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

Thank you Abby, Saphina, Emma, and Cindy!

We want to thank 8th graders Saphina and Abby for for being impressively poised and focused during our Open House last Saturday.  Thanks also to Kittredge parent Cindy Tam, for being a terrific parent representative and to Emma Gorin for showing us what life is like in high school as a Kittredge graduate.  

We will hold one more Open House on November 3rd. As always, word of mouth is our best representation.  If you know of a family that is looking for a good school, please have them visit our website kittredge.org to learn more.  Thank you!
