This Week’s News

High School Visits

High school admissions are on the horizon! Last week, representatives from Waldorf School came to visit our eighth graders, and answered their questions about the school. On Monday, middle schoolers had a similar visit from Urban High School, and tomorrow they will be visited by St. Ignatius. 

High school representatives will continue to visit throughout the month of October, with representatives from Sacred Heart (10/3), Riordan (10/5), San Francisco School of the Arts (10/19), Drew (10/24), and Jewish Community High School (10/26).

Photo Gallery

If you’ve been to a Kittredge event, you’ve probably seen Mr. Young somewhere in the distance, his camera focusing in on a hug, a high five, or a silly face. But did you know that all of these event photos are posted to the Kittredge website?

Under the gallery section, you can find albums from our events and activities, sports games, field trips, and spirit days. Take a look and find yourself, or your family, at this year’s Fall Picnic, Cross Country Meet, or Student Council Election!

You Go, Kittredge!

After weeks of practice, the Running Gags have their second meet of the season tomorrow, Wednesday, September 28th. The meet takes place at Crissy Field at 3:45. Go Gags!

Ms. Rose’s much-anticipated Science Club returns this year on Wednesday, October 5. Parents should keep an eye out for more information coming home with students soon.

Music Lessons with Gianfranco

This year, our esteemed music teacher Gianfranco will offer a 6-class workshop in Classical Guitar or Piano. Each class will be a 30 minute one-on-one lesson.

Students who are beginners will explore basic methods and techniques with their instruments such as chords, scales and reading musical notations. They will also learn a song from the Suzuki Method Guitar Book, or from the Piano Adventures series. 

Intermediate or advanced students will focus on enhancing their technique, and building their musical repertoire.

Each 30-minute class is $45.
