Kittredge Konnection — January 12, 2016

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day – No School This Monday

As written in our school calendar, Kittredge will be closed on Monday, January 18 in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Day.


Everyone is invited to attend the parents meeting from 6 to 7 this evening. Childcare is available.

TADS Tuition Payments

Just a reminder to our families using the two-payment tuition plan, January is the month that the second half will be deducted from your tuition account.

We’re Planning for Next Year

Re-enrollment will be available online beginning January 25 and ending February 6. This online information as well as the $1000.00 registration fee must be completed in order to hold a space for your child.

If you already know that your child will not be returning to Kittredge next year, please feel free to let us know, as it will help with planning.

There’re Still 3 Friday Lunches Available

This Friday is pizza, next Friday is Gordo’s bean and cheese burritos, and the month ends with chicken strips. Forms are available in the office and were also sent home with the Konnection last week. Please turn one in tomorrow if your child would like this Friday’s lunch.
