Bake Sale on Thursday for Lulu and Leo Fund
The sixth grade class will be hosting our Student Council sponsored bake sale on Thursday. All students will be able to enjoy a treat at snack time and a donation to the Lulu and Leo Fund will be accepted. Please send your child with a donation if you’d like to help. This fund supports youth programs in arts and sciences. http://www.lululeofund.org/
Parent Conferences are This Thursday and Friday – Noon Dismissal for Students
Minimum days are scheduled this week so that teachers can hold parent conferences. Extended Day is available for all students who come during conference time. Parents must sign in their child with an Extended Day teacher before they head off to their conference.
Important: Please make sure you arrive on time for your conference so that you can take advantage of the full 20-minute time spot. Because conferences are scheduled back to back, it is important that they end on time.
Let’s Not Forget Others… Toy Drive Ends 12/18

Holiday Happening is next Thursday – Volunteers are Needed
The Holiday Happening is almost here and we are looking for a handful of volunteers. Please come help the younger students with crafts, or help teachers with games, or help clean up at the end of the evening. We could use the extra hands! Even 15 or 20 minutes of your time would be appreciated. If interested contact Thalia at Thalia_kent7@yahoo.com. Thank you for contributing to this fun filled evening!
No Study Hall next Thursday, December 21
Extended Day Closes at 5:00
There will be NO Study Hall on Thursday and Extended Day will close at 5pm, so that we can begin setting up for the Holiday Happening. We recommend that children be picked up early enough to get ready at home for the Holiday Happening, which begins at 6:30.
Holiday Happening – Next Thursday from 6:30 – 8:00
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.
A sandwich snack is provided.
Please bring a finger food appetizer or dessert to share.
There will be crafts and games for all.
We’ll close with a community sing-a-long at 8.
As always, a great time is expected!
Important Note To All Parents: Please remember that this is a family and community event. Teachers will be busy running games and helping with food and we rely on parents to watch and supervise their own children. The Kittredge Parent Association has worked hard to have activities for all, but we do not have space for students to invite friends outside of Kittredge to this event. Thanks for your help and support of our community.
