Kittredge Konnection - March 5, 2024

This Week's News

2/3's Sea Creature Presentations Went Swimmingly!

We couldn't be more proud of Ms. Horrocks's students, who each made a wonderful project about their assigned sea critter. From sea turtles to pufferfish to whales, these students made some truly impressive work, which you can check out in the slideshow above.

Habit of Mind: Thinking Interdependently

“An unshared life is not living. He who shares does not lessen, but greatens, his life.”

Rabbi Stephen S. Wise

This month's Habit of Mind is "Thinking Interdependently." We live in a society where school, work and our personal lives all rely on cooperation and interdependence. Knowing how to cooperate and collaborate with another person or a group of people is a crucial skill for being an effective employee, student, family member, and friend.

In March, we encourage Kittredge students to practice their best communication, embrace compromise, and learn to see the benefit of working together.

K-3 Field Trip Tomorrow

Tomorrow, 3/6, our K-3 classes will attend a field trip to the Randall Museum! At this time, the classes do not need any additional drivers.

Say Cheese!

Class pictures will be taken this Friday, 3/8. Students should come to school in outfits they feel confident being photographed in, and might want to pack a comb or brush in their backpack for any last minute adjustments.

Hot Lunch Menu

This week's hot lunch will be cheese pizza, carrots, clementines, and a juice box. You can sign your child up using the link below:
