Sandcastle Event on November 3… Save the Date

Mark Pinski, Student Council President

One of the things I promised to do as school president was a school wide sandcastle event and there is a great event happening on November 3 on Ocean Beach. The Leap Sandcastle Classic, a day when different schools compete to build the best sandcastle, and people in the community can come in for free to see the building, hang out on the beach, maybe building their own sandcastle or help with the community sandcastles building (drop-in sand sculpture building areas open and free to every one).

If Kittredge families are interested, we can meet at noon by the Cliff House and all walk down together to the event. Here is a link to read more about it: http://leapsandcastleclassic.org/event_info/faq/
