Kittredge Konnection — March 1, 2016

Important Health News: Tdap Vaccine

A Tdap booster is required in California for all students entering 7th grade in private, public and charter schools. All Kittredge students entering 7th grade must have a Tdap booster to enter school in September. Proof of this immunization must be turned in by April 15th.


Tomorrow, 3/2, is Raffle Treat Day! A note from Heather Miller, Raffle chair

As the winners of the class with most tickets sold, the K/1 class will enjoy their ice cream sundae party in the afternoon! All other classes will enjoy Goody Goodie cookies and fruit at lunchtime. Sounds like everyone’s a winner! 🙂


Rock and Roll on Thursday, March 3

The Jungle Studs, featuring Pete and John Lavaroni will play an hour set at the HopMonk in Novato. The doors open for the first band at 7:30; the Jungle Studs will begin at 9pm. There is an $8.00 cover charge… a bargain at half the price.

Classes are working on their group performances with Ms. Elisabeth. We hope all students and families will attend. Each child’s role in the class production is important so please let us know if your child will not be attending the talent show.

******************************************************* Habit of Mind for March: Thinking Interdependently

“Snowflakes are one of nature’s most fragile things, but just look what they can do when they stick together.” ~Vista M. Kelly

Thinking Interdependently means to be able to share ideas, listen to each other, build ideas collaboratively and draw on each other’s individual strengths. When we “Think Interdependently” we achieve something that wouldn’t be possible without the rest of the team. We learn from and extend upon each other’s ideas and thoughts. We think together, not just work together.

Community Service Opportunity – Presidio Plant Nursery Grades 5-8

Friday, March 18th 1-4pm (noon dismissal day) Location: Presidio Nursery, 1249 Appleton Street

The Presidio Plant Nursery has arranged a volunteer afternoon for Kittredge kids in grades 5-8. Volunteers care for native plants and are part of a community-based restoration program working to restore the Presidio. I have arranged transportation for up to 8 students. If the group is larger we will need additional drivers. Parents can pick up their children at the Nursery at 4pm.

Please contact me if your child is interested in attending.

RSVP by March 4th so I can give the Nursery a head count. Thanks!
