KPA Meeting Tonight
All parents are invited (and encouraged) to attend the parent association meeting tonight from 6 to 7pm. There is childcare available for Kittredge students and a pizza snack. We hope to see you there.
Let’s Not Forget Others… Toy Drive Ends 12/20
Please celebrate the holiday spirit by helping those less fortunate.
A new, unwrapped toy or book will go the SF Fire Fighters Toy Drive. Our toy barrels are here and your generous donation can be dropped off at any time before December 20.
Gustav (a guide dog in training) will be at Kittredge
Eighth grader, Cate Kreutzen, will be bringing Gustav to Kittredge with her as part of his guide dog training. He will be here in the mornings and will be wearing his vest, which means that he is working and shouldn’t be treated as a pet. This is Cate’s second guide dog training and many of us fondly remember Hadley last year. Thanks to all for your help with this.
Student Council Elections
All students interested in running for a classroom or school-wide office must return a signed permission form by Monday, December 11. Our election for next term’s officers will be held on December 21, before our Winter Break. Student Council is open to students in 4th to 8th grades.
Bake Sale For the Lulu and Leo Fund – Next Thursday, December 14th
The Lulu & Leo Fund was established in memory of Lucia (Lulu) and Leo Krim to support youth programs in the arts and sciences. (lululeofund.org)
Sixth grader, Daisy Meritt, made a proposal at a Student Council meeting for the Reps to consider this organization for our fundraiser. There were a couple other ideas, but ultimately Daisy’s proposal was unanimously voted on.
Please send your child to school next Thursday with a donation if you’d like to help.
Parent Conferences are next Thursday and Friday
Minimum days are scheduled next Thursday and Friday so that teachers can hold parent conferences. Extended Day is available for students during their 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.
Minimum Days for Parent Conferences
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: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/December14-15
First School Spirit Day is December 20
Class Spirit Day is our first Student Council Spirit Day of the year. Each class in the school will choose a theme to show their spirit, and will compete with each other for the most spirited class. Once classes have chosen their theme, please help your child join in on the fun!
Holiday Happening –Thursday, December 21 from 6:30 – 8:15
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.
Please bring a finger food appetizer or dessert to share.
A sandwich snack is provided.
There will be crafts and games for all.
We will end with a community sing-a-long.
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 we ask parents 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.
No School on Friday, December 22
As written in our calendar, Winter Break begins this year on Friday, December 22. The Holiday Happening is the official start of our holiday break.
Extended Day will open on Friday until 5pm if 5 or more students register. A survey monkey form will go home next week so we can make sure we are staffed properly.
Tis the season…
With a little more than two weeks of school left before Winter Break, we are packing our calendar full of activities! Please take a look so you don’t miss anything!
