Kittredge Konnection — December 1, 2015

No December Hot Lunches!

Please remember to pack a lunch for your child this Friday because we are not offering a Hot Lunch.

We will continue our Friday lunches in January.


Pajama Day – Tomorrow, December 2

Our second school spirit day is coming! Tomorrow all students are being asked to show their school spirit by wearing their favorite jammies to school.


KPA Meeting Next Tuesday, December 8

All parents are invited and encouraged to attend the December KPA meeting from 6 to 7pm. Details about the Holiday Happening and other KPA sponsored events will be discussed. As always, childcare and pizza are provided for Kittredge students.


Parent Conferences – next Thursday and Friday, December 10 & 11

Thank you to everyone for returning your conference forms.

Confirmation of the day and time of your appointment will be given to your child tomorrow. See you all next week!


Minimum Days for Parent Conferences, December 10 and 11

Please Complete Your Dismissal Information on Survey Monkey

Every parent is being asked to complete 5 easy questions on a survey monkey form so we know where to dismiss your child next week. Please remember that Thursday and Friday are noon dismissals so that teachers can meet for parent conferences.

Thanks in advance! Here’s the link:


Student Council Elections

All students interested in running for a classroom or school-wide office will be given permission forms later this week to be signed and returned by next Tuesday. Our election for next term’s officers will be held on December 17, before our Winter Break. Student Council is open to students in 4th to 8th grades.


Let’s Not Forget Others… Toy Drive is in Progress

Please celebrate the holiday spirit by donating a new, unwrapped toy or book to the SF Fire Fighters Toy Drive.

Our toy barrel is here and your generous donation can be dropped off at any time… or you can bring a toy or book to the Holiday Happening!


Extended Day Will Close at 5pm on December 17th To Prepare for the Holiday Happening

Please note that all students should be picked up from Extended Day by 5pm Thursday, December 17.

This will give us some time to prepare the school for the Holiday Happening and it will give families some time together before coming back at 6:30 for the celebration.

Thanks for your help with this.


Holiday Happening – December 17th from 6:30 – 8:15

Extended Day will Close at 5:00!

All families are invited to attend Kittredge School’s annual Holiday Happening. Please mark your calendars now to make sure you don’t miss this wonderful event.

  1. Please bring a finger food appetizer or finger food dessert to share.

  2. A sandwich snack/dinner is provided.

  3. There will be crafts and games for all.

  4. We’ll close with a community sing-a-long.

  5. As always, a great time is expected!

Rumor has it that Santa will make an appearance.

Important Note To All Parents:

During the Holiday Happening, teachers will be busy running the games and helping with the food so please don’t rely on them to watch your children. Kittredge believes parents need to supervise their own children. There will be a lot of stimuli throughout the school and it can be overwhelming to some. Also, the party must stay inside the school building. Students will not be able to leave the school without parent supervision.


Habit of Mind for December/January: Managing Impulsivity

Successful people have learned how to manage their impulses. They take time to consider options; they think before speaking or acting; they remain calm when stressed or challenged; they are thoughtful and considerate of others; and they proceed carefully.

“Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.” ~ Vincent Van Gogh

As the holiday season approaches there are lights, music, parties and people everywhere. All our senses are being stimulated and our impulses may be harder that usual to manage. This is a wonderful time to remember to stop and think before we act.

“Never be afraid to sit a while and think.” ~Lorraine Hansberry, American Playwright
