A special thank you to Emma Gorin, class of 2018, for doing such a terrific job filming with the second camera.

THIS WEEK’S NEWS
Screen Free Week is In Progress!
We hope that many of our students and families are joining the fun and taking the challenge to turn off their screens for 7 consecutive days.
For entertainment, participants are able to read, daydream, explore, enjoy nature, and spend time with family and friends. This annual celebration gives children, families, schools and communities a chance to turn off screens and turn on life.
Screens can still be used for homework and business but not for entertainment. The idea of this week is to find and enjoy other means of amusement and socializing for seven days.
Earth Day Hike for Eighth Graders This Thursday
This Thursday, April 25, 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 are permitted!
Culture Day – May 8
Culture Day is a school wide celebration of the diversity of our school, city, state, and world.
Every classroom teacher will celebrate it differently, however, the one uniting feature will be sharing of food. Children will be asked to bring food to share from their culture or a culture they admire. This creates a wonderful potluck lunch for students and teachers alike and a great way to learn about different cultures.
High School Information Night for 7th Grade Parents is May 16 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 24; 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.
Save the Date: Sports Banquet – May 17
There will be a pizza awards dinner at Amici’s for students and families who participated in any of our Kittredge sports teams this year. That includes Volleyball, Cross Country, Basketball and Futsal.
An invitation and RSVP will be sent later, but please save the date!
Summer at Kittredge – June 17 to July 19
Summer is a great opportunity to engage children in activities that enrich their academic foundation and keep them involved and interested in learning.
Our 5-week summer program is open to students entering first through eighth grades. Mornings are designed to keep students active and their grade level skills strong. The afternoons offer a variety of free play and structured activities. If you are interested, please return an enrollment form to reserve a space for your child. Applications are available in the office or you can download one from our website.
