There’s Still Time to Help with our Virtual Tours

We are looking for your help to collect some audio for our new Kittredge School video. Our videographer is hoping to use audio of kids along with pictures of the school. If you and your student are interested please record your student’s response to one or more of these questions. 

QUESTIONS — What does Kittredge mean to you? What is one of your favorite Kittredge memories? What makes Kittredge special? What is your favorite thing to do at Kittredge?

You are welcome to record this on iPhone video if that is easier. She will only be using the audio but can remove the video portion. Please make sure the mic is close to their mouth so the audio is nice and strong! She will use whatever fits her video best!

If you would like to be a part of the video please email as soon as possible. She can answer any questions you have.   Pozziproductions@gmail.com

Thank you in advance!
