Earth Day Hike for Eighth Graders This Thursday – Let the Sun Shine In
This Thursday, April 20, our 8th graders will hike through the Presidio to the Golden Gate Bridge, walk across the bridge and up into the Headlands. Proper preparation is important, so please be aware of the following: Good walking shoes, a jacket, and water bottles are required. An especially hearty lunch and sunscreen are good ideas. Personal stereos (iPod, other MP3 players, etc.) are permitted!
Art Costa Visits on Friday
Once again we have the good fortune of having Art Costa spend a day at Kittredge. He will have time to stop into classrooms and talk with teachers to see how our Habit of Mind curriculum is going. He will also stay after school to meet with our teachers at our Friday staff meeting.

The Annual KPA Dinner and Auction is May 6th
Hopefully everyone has received the evite from the KPA with details about this annual event. There is a beautiful website, www.kittredgeauction.com, where you can purchase dinner tickets, pre-order a Talent Show DVD, or pre-order your child’s artwork.
There have been many parents volunteering their time and working hard to make this year’s dinner a wonderful evening and we hope that we see a lot of you on May 6th.
High School Information Night for 7th Grade Parents is Thursday, May 11 at 6pm
All 7th grade parents are invited and strongly encouraged to attend this informational meeting about the high school application process. Now is a great time to begin talking as a family about goals and plans for high school. Don’t let the admissions process become overwhelming. Come and get some basic information to help you start planning for this next step in your child’s education.
Students will get a lot of support for this process next year, so this meeting is for parents only.
Staff Development Day is May 19; No School
Please note that we have a teacher development day scheduled next month. This will be a workday for teachers but there will be no classes. Extended Day will be open during the hours of 8:00am to 6:00pm for 5 students or more.
