Kittredge Parents Association (KPA)
The Kittredge Parents Association (KPA) grew out of parents’ efforts to help support our students and faculty through fundraising and community building. Since then we have become a 501c non-profit and grown increasingly involved behind the scenes in making and keeping Kittredge a phenomenal seat of learning.
The KPA has become an organizer of several of the best-loved, co-curricular events throughout the school year and plays an important part in funding both in the classroom and co-curriculars.
Get involved! Come join us and learn more – including how you can help – at our monthly meetings, typically held on the second Tuesday of the month at 6:00pm and announced via the Kittredge Konnection. Free childcare (and pizza) is always provided.
See a complete list of KPA-sponsored events here.

Throughout the year, the KPA plans events to celebrate, fundraise, or simply get together as a community. These volunteer-led events rely entirely on the community. If you're interested in pitching in to put on a "count-me-in" event, help plan the annual camping trips, organize one of the two socials, or plan a picnic, contact the KPA.
In December, the Kittredge community gets together for an all-ages, family-friendly evening of holiday cheer and fun. This is one of the most popular events for our children...and many hands are needed to pull it off!
Join us on Dec. 20th at 6pm. We're currently looking for volunteers to make the magic happen!
Twice a year, in the Fall and in the Spring, families find creative ways to share their interests and passions - or just get together with the community - in fundraising events called "count-me-ins" (CMI). The KPA will solicit the community to sponsor CMI close to the Fall and Spring Social events. Past examples include:
Have an idea for a great CMI? Email email@example.com with your idea!
In the Fall, parents join together to raise a glass, reconnect and get to know each other at a casual evening event. Leading up to the event, we typically solicit raffle prizes and ask the community to purchase tickets for Warriors tickets, bottles of wine, vacation stays and much more. This is one of the larger fundraising events of the year.
Enjoy a night out on Oct. 28th! Look for details in upcoming KPA emails.
In the Fall and in the Spring, the Kittredge community goes camping! Group camp sites are booked by parent organizer(s) and casual activities are planned; meals are often potlucks...and fun is had by all! Past camping trips have been to the Sonoma Coast and Bothe-Napa State Park.
Stay tuned for details on the upcoming Spring trip!
Kittredge parents come together in the spring for an evening event focusing on connection, community and raising funds for the KPA. Recent events have included a casual dinner and raffle at the school and an evening out in the Mission!
Fall & Year-End Picnics
At the start and end of the school year, the KPA organizes a family-friendly, day-time picnic. New and returning students are invited to join in fun activities and the KPA springs for treats.
Ways to Give
In addition to planning events, the Kittredge Parents Association, a 501c, hosts fundraisers throughout the year to support its community-building efforts, teacher appreciation events, the annual Kittredge Field Day, sports equipment and rentals, etc.
