Kittredge Shines Again!

A thank you note from Pete Lavaroni, Principal

Our students and teachers did a remarkable job of holding it together the many days that they were stuck inside due to the unsafe air. The families/parents stepped up tremendously when coming to school was no longer safe or possible for their kids. Thank you all because you are truly the best!

Weather Permitting the 7th and 8th Grades Will Hike This Thursday

Hopefully on Thursday our 7th and 8th graders will spend the day hiking along the coast to Land’s End and then down to Ocean Beach. After a lunch break they will hike back. This day helps prepare them for next week in Yosemite Park and is the perfect time to break in hiking shoes.

Please make sure your children have hearty lunches to help them through this busy day.
