CHARACTER COUNTS NEWS
“Fairness” is Our Character Pillar this Trimester
As one of the six pillars of Character Counts, fairness is described as: Playing by the rules • Taking turns and sharing • Being open-minded; listening to others • Not taking advantage of others • Not blaming others carelessly • Treating all people fairly.
At our assembly last week, the student council performed a skit to help students see that being fair is giving each person what they need. And, because everyone doesn’t need the same thing, you need to listen to each other and be open minded in order to know what is fair.
We have created a “Fairness” Wall near the office and students are currently sharing what fairness means to them in their life. When they add a post-it note to the wall, they receive a chain with a “Fairness” dog tag on it. We hope to see everyone at Kittredge wearing this proudly.
2019-2020 Registration Will be Available Next Week
Registration and re-enrollment will be open to current families beginning next week. As written on our calendar, this process needs to be completed by February 9 if you would like us to hold a classroom space for your child(ren) for next year. Thanks for your help with this process; we are looking forward to working with your family again.
Presidents’ Week Break is Coming Soon: February 18 to 22
As written on our calendar, Kittredge will be closed on Monday, February 19th for Presidents’ Day. Extended Day will be available from Tuesday to Friday if we have 5 or more enrolled.
A Survey Monkey registration form will be emailed home in two weeks. Please let us know if your child will use our Extended Day Program during Presidents’ Week so we can plan properly. Thanks for your help with this.
Summer School 2019 is being Scheduled
We believe that summer is a great opportunity to engage children in activities that enrich their academic foundation and keep them involved and interested in learning. Therefore, we will offer one five-week academic session this summer. The dates are June 17 to July 19.
Brochures and registration will be available in February. We hope you will be able to use this program, as it is a worthwhile experience for any child. Also, we appreciate you letting your friends know of this program since it is open to students in any school.
March 28 is our Annual Talent Show
Please mark your calendars now to make sure you can attend this entertaining evening of talent. Once again we have reserved the theater at the JCC on California Street. The show begins at 6:30pm. At 5:30 there will be light snacks in the atrium. The doors will open at 6:10 and Extended Day will close at 5:00.
Classrooms are all working with David on their group production. Individual students can audition during class time next month.
