Kittredge Konnection – January 17, 2017

Pajama Day Tomorrow!

Please help your child remember to wear his or her favorite jammies to school tomorrow. This is a relaxing and fun Spirit Day at Kittredge.


2017-2018 Registration Will be Available Next Week

Registration and reenrollment will be open to current families beginning next week. As written on our calendar, this process needs to be completed by February 10 if you would like us to hold a classroom space for your child(ren) for next year. Thanks for your help with this process; we are looking forward to working with your family again.


NatureBridge: February 12 to 17

In about four weeks, our 7th and 8th graders will be at Yosemite National Park for a very memorable outdoor education and bonding experience.

Please make sure your child has the supplies on the supply list for this weeklong program. Supply lists are available from Mr. Young if you need another copy.

Please note that all payments for NatureBridge are due next Friday, January 27.


In Preparation for NatureBridge…

Thursday, February 2: 7th & 8th graders will hike through Lincoln Park along the coast towards Land’s End, past the Cliff House to Ocean Beach. After a break for lunch and some fun, they will hike back and arrive at school by 3:00. Students should bring a hearty lunch, a water bottle and good walking shoes. This is the perfect time to break in any new shoes (and raingear).

Thursday, February 9: The 7th and 8th grade classes will have a chance to perfect their ice skating moves at Yerba Buena rink. They will be gone from 10:30 to 3pm, so please make sure your child brings a hearty lunch, a water bottle and good walking shoes.


Presidents’ Week Break is Coming Soon: February 20 to 24

As written on our calendar, Kittredge will be closed on Monday, February 20th for Presidents’ Day. Extended Day will be available from Tuesday to Friday if we have 5 or more enrolled.

A Survey Monkey registration form will be emailed home in a couple weeks. Please let us know if your child will use our Extended Day Program during Presidents’ Week so we can plan properly. Thanks for your help with this.


Seventh Grade Parent Information Night – February 1, from 6 to 7pm

A note from Ms. Dharmer

All 7th grade parents are encouraged to attend this information session with Ms. Dharmer regarding the upcoming research paper. This project spans one-and-a-half trimesters and accounts for a significant part of your child’s grade. Even if another of your children has already had this wonderful experience, we would love for you to attend. The information is a great refresher and you, as a veteran, can offer helpful insight to other parents. For new folks, this gathering ensures that we will all be on the same page and able to provide solid support for your child’s long term learning adventure.

The session will be held on Wednesday, February 1st, from 6-7 pm.

Looking forward to seeing everyone! Please RSVP to me as soon as you can:


Parent Book Club (PBC) Meeting for the Second Semester is Scheduled

Once again Ms. Dharmer has planned an interesting and thoughtful book club discussion for Kittredge parents. The chosen book is Bless the Beasts and the Children by Glendon Swarthout.

Summer School 2017 is now Scheduled

We believe that summer is a great opportunity to engage children in activities that enrich their academic foundation and keep them involved and interested in learning. Therefore, we will offer one five-week academic session this summer. The dates are June 19 to July 21.

Brochures and registration will be available in February. We hope you will be able to use this program, as it is a worthwhile experience for any child. Also, we appreciate you letting your friends know of this program since it is open to students in any school.


March 29 is our Annual Talent Show

Please mark your calendars now to make sure you can attend this entertaining evening of talent. Once again we have reserved the theater at the JCC on California Street. The show begins at 6:30pm. Extended Day will close at 5:30.

Classrooms are all working with David on their group production. Individual students can audition during class time next month.
